Don't buy HP printers they include firmware that blocks the refiled cartridges.
Mine doesn't block it all. I have an HP desk jet , You just download their utility and uncheck "genuine HP ink only" problem solved. you need the software to use some functions of the device anyway, like scanning is easier , atleast for me with the program , so i just took a couple minutes to look through it, & i found this page...i havent bought a XL564 ink set that costs over $15 in years (thats $15 for ALL 4 inks cartridges)

Since I don't have earphones with L-shaped 3,5 mm jack, I used slightly better and more aesthetic solution to increase the lifespan of earphones. No more medical tape. :D It really works! The solution is heat-shrinking tube. I went to a few hardware and DIY stores near me and when asking for that product they looked at me like I felt from Mars and am talking some gibberish. So I ordered a bunch of them on ebay from China for less than 1 € with free shipping.

This simple but effective modification will definitely increase the lifespan of any earphones and it looks much better than medical tape, electrical tape or duct tape.

Not always, but sometimes using strain relief just pushes the point of failure to the end of the strain relief. Hope not in your case.

This thing was not available for my model. Is it a specific software only for unlocking or its included in your printer specific installation software?
