Laserjet 4250n with non-HP toner?

Laserjet 4250n with non-HP toner?

I inherited a LaserJet 4250m with duplex unit recently. It has a non-HP toner installed so on power-up after the POST the display says


and the attention LED flashes. If I press the green 'tick' button it then briefly displays [code]NON HP SUPPLY INSTALLED. Economode disabled[code] and then goes to 'Ready'.
I know its a tiny hiccup but is there anyway to disable this check so the green button doesn't need to be pressed (other than buying a genuine HP toner).


RE: Laserjet 4250n with non-HP toner?

Who are you using as your non-OEM toner supplier? I use LD Products with my 2600n and have never had that message. Could just be wonky chips used in your carts. I dont believe there is a section in the software for turning off that message but you would have to look through it closely. Might be on an Admin panel only though....
