Will a remanufactured cartridge void my printer warranty by the manufacturer?
It is illegal for a printer manufacturer to require you to use or purchase a particular brand of supply, just as it is illegal for your car dealer to require only original parts be used to fix your car. An OEM cannot void your warranty unless they can conclusively prove that other brands of supplies will damage your machine. Under Federal law, the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act there states: No warrantor of a consumer product may condition his written or implied warranty of such product on the consumer’s using, in connection with such product, any article or service (other than article or service provided without charge under the terms of the warranty) which is identified by brand, trade or corporate name (15 U.S.C.A. 2302). While you may receive a warning on your computer screen that the unidentified ink cartridge you are using may void your warranty, this is not true.
