I bought a HP 8250 in Belgium which apparently uses ink cartridges type 363. While in the States I bought an entire set of new ink cartridges for my 8250 not realizing that they were of the type 02.
Needless to say they do not work.
Is there anything I can do so that I can use these 02 cartridges ? Can I reset the chip somehow ?

Hi, As the printer was bought in the US the printer
is meant to use the #02 cartridges. When you decided to replace the empty cartridges
with refilled ones…the place you took them to be refilled more than likely decided
to replace the little chip with a local flavour, which attempt to mimic original
HP cartridges #363 (or what ever the number of those cartridges is where you
are now). Hence now they are rejected by your printer. But because the printer is
only designed to use #02 cartridges it will reject every other cartridge/chip
that do not have an #02 programmed into them…. You could try to call HP and explain them your
situation and see if they can help you reset your printer to accept a different
cartridge number … Cheers.
Hi, You are correct those printers & cartridges are designed to work only in their original countries of origin… For example if you bought the printer in Europe, it uses the #363 cartridges.. If you were to have bought the printer in the US it would use the #02. You can contact HP and over the phone they can help you turn your printer from a #363 into a #02…ou might need to have a “story” ready ;) Once the conversion is done, from that moment onwards, your printer will only take #02 carts... Only HP can make that change... Cheers, Ed PS: If you get a chance, please grade this advice...
I had same problem, and i solved it. I opened my hp 8250 and removed it`s battery. It is located on left side of the printer, on the main board. You need to remove plastic covers , and then remove 3 screws holding board. You can move board just enough to get damn battery out of there. Now it works perfect! I can send you some piccs if you need help. Regards Sasa
Actually you cannot use your # 363 ink on your photosmart c6180. The ink is not compatible with the printer. Photosmart c6180 only uses HP02 vivera inks. And there is no way that you can reconfigure it because it is factory default. Unless you bought an HP02 ink from other country outside US and bought the printer in US, that's the only time that we can reconfigure the regionalization of the printer
