HP Battery Recall

HP have announced a worldwide safety recall and replacement program for certain notebook and laptop batteries. The batteries in question have the potential to overheat posing a fire and burn hazard to users. Due to this it is crucial to check whether your battery is affected. HP have published a battery validation utility you can download and run (https://batteryprogram687.ext.hp.com/en-US/Home/Validation). This will check if the battery in your laptop is affected. Below is a table of all the affected models ProBook HP Probook 640 G2 HP ProBook 640 G3 HP ProBook 645 G2 HP ProBook 645 G3 HP ProBook 650 G2 HP ProBook 650 G3 HP ProBook 655 G2 HP ProBook 655 G3 ZBook HP ZBook 17 G3 HP ZBook 17 G4 HP ZBook Studio G3 x360 HP x360 310 G2 Pavilion HP Pavilion x360 Envy HP ENVY m6 11 HP 11 Notebook PC   Here is a list of FAQs provided by HP https://batteryprogram687.ext.hp.com/en-US/Home/FAQs.

HP will replace all verified, affected batteries at no cost. If you have any questions please feel free to give us a call, we have shipped very few of these models so if you source... read more

The potential dangers of using compatible toner cartridges

With current economic pressures and increasing prices, businesses and consumers are looking for more ways to save money. As a result, the sale of compatible printer consumables is increasing but many people are still unaware of the serious implications of using non-branded inks, toners and drums in their machines.   Will using cheaper compatible products invalidate my printer warranty? It depends. Using compatible consumables in your printer may not invalidate the warranty. However any damage caused to your printer by the use of third party consumables will not be repaired under the terms of the printer’s warranty. It is wise to check the manufactures website for warranty terms. How are compatible toner cartridges made? Some compatible cartridges are simply refilled – the casing is cracked open and refilled with new toner. Compatibles produced in this way are generally poor quality, unreliable and often lower capacity compared with branded cartridges. Refurbished cartridges are completely stripped down and rebuilt from scratch, using reconditioned components, or brand new ones where necessary. The cartridges are reassembled to the original manufacturer’s specifications and given a full load of toner; as a result, cartridges produced in this way can be at least equal in build quality to the originals. Three main risks with compatible toners: Leaking. These cartridges are normally a refilled genuine cartridges. Seals may not be as good as when the toner was originally filled. Damage to the fuser. If the cartridge has been refilled with toner that has different characteristics, the toner can stick on the fuser and other components. Drum problems with all-in-one toner/drum cartridges. This is relatively small damage to the printer... read more
