What is a "compatible" ink or toner cartridge?
Compatible cartridges are new cartridges manufactured to match the cartridge that came with your printer. Ink Cartridges which have a printhead on them (HP and Lexmark) are remanufactured because the printhead has circuitry on it which is patent protected and can't be duplicated. The circuitry is tested prior to being remanufactured to guarantee a good product.
Will using "remanufactured" or "compatible" toner or ink cartridges affect my printer warranty?
The manufacturer of the printer your printer cannot void the warranty because you use a cartridge or toner manufactured by someone other than the printer manufacturer. Please read the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Improvement Act found in our KNOW YOUR RIGHTS information area.
