A cartridge protection feature is available on the HP Officejet 8100 and 8600 printers. In the toolbox, there is a tab called "HP Cartridge Protection" where you may decide whether or not to enable this feature. The cartridges only function in this specific printer since the default setting is activated. The cartridges will not function and a notification will appear if you attempt to install them in another printer.
