HP8250 printer will not print. cartidges out of date

My HP 8250 printer, will not print untill I renew 4 catridges which it says have passed their expiry date. If I do, it will invalidate the warranty.
The warranty is way out of date, so this does not matter to me.
The printer allowed me to print if I pressed the OK button, for the last month or so, but now it will not work at all.
This is a software problem. How can I fix it please?

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

This is not a good printer Link

Canon makes good printers, the IP4600 will be released soon and its cheap, Link

Have you tried using all new genuine HP carts ?

I usually agree with Eric but this time I would recommend iP4500 and not iP4600

iP4500 has larger tanks and is much easier to refill.
iP4600 introduces new countermeasures :cop:

I just bought an iP4500 before they are all gone.

Good to know, thanks. I’m still refilling my IP4200. Accidentally let the colors run out of ink, refilled them and it still worked! I thought for sure they were fried. :doh:

Thanks for the info

The cartridges specifically that require replacing are the originals. The others have been replaced by non HP ones.
I am so pleased with the quality and speed of the printer, I did not want to replace it
