What is firmware and why does it need to be reset?




Firmware is a software program that controls the hardware of your printer. It tells the printer how to perform various tasks, such as printing, scanning, copying, etc. Firmware also communicates with the toner cartridge and monitors its status and level.


Sometimes, the firmware of your printer may get corrupted or outdated due to various reasons, such as power surges, software updates, incompatible cartridges, etc. This can cause some problems with your printer, such as:


  • Printer error messages



  • Low toner warning



  • Inability to print or recognize the cartridge



  • Reduced print quality or speed



To solve these problems, you may need to reset the firmware of your printer. Firmware reset is a process that restores the original settings of your printer and clears any errors or faults in the firmware. By resetting the firmware, you can also use compatible or refilled toner cartridges without any issues.
