So can you refill toner in the HP 2600? Hewlett Packard printers used to be some of the easiest printers to refill anywhere, which was good news for companies who had the sturdy laserjet models printing all day.
But alas of course HP realised that huge profits were being wasted by allowing people to refill these cartridges easily, sure it’s the green thing to do and reduces the environmental impact but that doesn’t mean much to the shareholders !
So the usual trick of adding a little chip to the cartridges happened, the HP 2600 had a little killer chip fitted to the toner cartridge to stop you refilling. Imagine it’s like a car company fitting a device that stopped your car working after 50,000 miles so that you had to get a new one. Incredible that this practice is even allowed as frankly it’s disgusting faced with the environmental issues of the world.
