Replacement chip for HP 2600. The HP 2600 cartridges are designed with a chip so that the printer can remember how much toner is left in the cartridge, and therefore warn you when you are running low on toner. This feature of the HP 2600 printer cartridge is called "diagnostics". Without the chip, the cartridge will not print. We offer 2 reset procedures (manual reset procedures) , so that you can "override" your old HP 2600 chips, and thereby allow your printer to continue printing.
