HP Ink COO: Sorry not sorry we bricked your otherwise totally fine printer cartridges

"I have a sneaky suspicion that nobody actually *likes* the printer they have. It was something they've just learnt to tolerate, like the monthly connection charge for your landline."

I'm actually quite happy with my Brother HL-3140 color laser printer. Which works absolutely fine with cheap third party cartridges, and if the printer thinks a cartridge is empty then it isn't, then Brother's website has instructions how to fix it.

If you have one of these HP printers and you are a consumer in the EU, you take it back to the shop and ask for the problem to be fixed or a refund.
