Lexmark Firmware Warning!

It has come to my attention recently that Lexmark is now doing the same thing that Samsung is, namely disabling aftermarket chips for thier newer printers such as the T-650, E260/360/460 and various Lexmark inkjets. If you wish to continue to save money by buying quality aftermarket cartridges, do NOT upgrade the firmware of your Lexmark laser and inkjet printers. Just click NO if you get a pop-up stating there is a new firmware update.
Like Samsung, the firmware update provided by Lexmark give no information about disabling aftermarket cartridges. The information contained in the update only states that it will improve the functions of your printer.
The old adage is very true in these cases… If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
