Update the firmware on an HP printer

HP regularly releases new firmware versions for printer enhancements, app updates, or issue fixes. Update the firmware regularly to get the most out of your printer.

Note:

For dynamic security enabled printers, the firmware includes dynamic security measures, which are used to block cartridges using a non-HP chip or modified or non-HP electronic circuitry. The printer is intended to work only with new or reused cartridges that have a new or reused HP chip or circuitry. Periodic firmware updates will maintain the effectiveness of the dynamic security measures and block cartridges that previously worked. More at: http://www.hp.com/learn/ds.

If one method does not work, try another method.

Update the printer firmware through the HP Smart app

Use the HP Smart app to check for and install firmware updates.

  1. Open the HP Smart app, and then create an account or sign in. If you do not have HP Smart, download it from 123.hp.com or your app store.

  3. On the app home screen, select your printer name or image.
