For now, the issue is reported to affect HP OfficeJet family, including the OfficeJet, the OfficeJet Pro and the OfficeJet Pro X. As per HP, the largest Printer Manufacture in the world, the printers will continue to work with refilled or remanufactured cartridges with an original HP security chip however other cartridges may not function. Remanufactured or after-market printer toners or cartridges have gained exceptional popularity due to the low cost which sometimes can be one tenth the cost of original toner.
