Open the printer from the "Printers and Faxes" folder and go to Printer -> Properties


On the "General" tab, click "Printing Preferences"


Now, hold down the CTRL key and double click on the HP logo in the bottom corner.


Enter these codes in the top five boxes:
0229, 8572, 8308, 5992, 4000.

SOURCE: to make my Epson printer, model "Epson stylus C42UX" work in India, with Indian ink catridges T038 & T039

This is a tricky one, but there are possibilities.
1. Buy a set of epson C42 cartridges from the cheapest source and keep refilling them - you will need a (very cheap) resetter.
2. Transfer the C42 chip to the C41 cartridge - they are only clipped in place. I don't know if this will work because I only have knowledge of C42 cartridges - the C41 cartridges may be keyed so they wont fit in a C42 cartridge carrier. You may be able to identify a clone manufacturer for which this is possible. You will also need the resetter for this solution.
3. Fit a Continuous ink system (CISS) see for example

SOURCE: Region settings for HP Photosmart D7160

You can try this, but I still thing you need HP tech support to tell you which numbers you should enter, because they vary from printer to printer.

  1. You should have your printer connected to a windows PC with a USB cable even if it is a network printer.
  2. Press * and # keys to bring up the "Mfg Commands" screen. I assume this is only used by HP service staff.
  3. The "Mfg Commands" screen asks you to "Enter special key combo" which is 123 then press ok.
  4. Use the right arrow key to step through the menus until you find the "Special Reports" menu then press ok.
  5. Use the right arrow key again to find the "Print Cartridges" menu and press ok
  6. This will print out a page with numbers ranging from 11. to 74. This page will print regardless of the print cartridges in the printer and whether they are valid print cartridges.
  7. The numbers of interest to HP support will be 11,21,25,52,62
  8. They will use the above information to generate a new set of five lots of 4 numbers.
  9. You will need to enter the 5 lots of 4 numbers onto a windows PC which has the HP drivers installed.
  10. On a windows PC with HP drivers installed open notepad and select print to bring up the printer dialog .
  11. Click on "preferences" in the print dialog window to open the HP preferences dialogue.
  12. Holding down the control key double click the HP icon in the bottom left corner of the preferences dialogue to open a service maintenance menu which will allow you to enter 5 lots of 4 digit numbers which HP staff will provide.
  13. Once you have entered the 5 lots of 4 numbers and press ok a data file is sent to the printer which changes its region settings.
  14. You then have to switch the printer off for about 1 minute then back on again and your new cartridges should now be valid.
Or try this, but I'm not sure if it works:
  1. press *# together
  2. press 127
  3. change from user to mfg mode
  4. shut down restart
  5. press power button after a graphic screen
  6. see rainbow screen
  7. press power button again
