Have a photosmart C4380 printer and brought it to Canada from the UK but the ink cartridges here are not compatible as wrong region. Any advice would be much appreciated

    Never heard of region codes for anything other than DVD. You sure you don't have a power issue? What is the line voltage (AC outlets) in Canada versus the UK?

There are in fact region codes, I'm in the process of getting tech support from HP right now. They want me to call in, but that costs, email tech support via the website, they should be able to help you.

    Here's the email from HP

    with the introduction of some new inkjet print cartridges in Fall
    2004, HP is implementing a program to enable customization of printers
    and supplies products to better meet specific local customer needs.
    There will be different selectability numbers in each of four
    geographical zones in the world, and your printer will only perform
    when using cartridges for the zone in which the printer was designated
    for sale and use.
    The HP Photosmart C4380 All-in-One Printer is a regionalized
    printer. As you bought this printer in Europe, the printer is set to
    use the cartridges which are for Europe. Even though you are using the
    correct cartridges, the all-in-one will not recognize the cartridges.

    To resolve the issue, the printer has to be reset to US zone. These
    settings are pretty difficult to follow through an e-mail. So, I
    suggest you to contact the US Phone Support at at the number given
    below and the online technician will surely assist you regarding this.

    Phone support number is :1-800-474-6836

I have a HP Photosmart C3180 that I bought in the US and now trying to install UK cartridges, but it tells me that the cartridge is incorrect. How do I re-set the printer to accept the UK cartridges?


The reason behind this is the regionalization capability of your product. The printer sets its region/zone after printing a few pages with a particular ink cartridge, once the region/zone is set, the printer would only recognize ink cartridges that are bought from the region/zone it's set to. You can click on the link to determine the compatible cartridges that you may use with your printer.

Only certain cartridges are compatible with your product. This document lists compatible cartridges by country/region. Use one of the following methods to check which cartridges are compatible with your product.Click on the link below for more information.

Hello. I have HP photosmart C5180 and I only need black colour to print some documents, I bought the original HP ink, but my printer says that I need to change expired colours too (pink, blue, cyan...) but...


Your model is a Inkjet printer working on HP TIJ 4.0 technology4. So it cannot work with one valid cartridge. You have to replace all of them to make you printer to work. This is what HP advices and highly recommends.

The Ink cartrdige can be bypassed only in Laserjet printers

Is it possible to use non HP ink in ths printer? Tried using "remanufactured ink", and concluded that this printer may be programed to block the use of NON HP INK.


It is always recommended to use genuine HP cartridges.
As if we will use the non HP or refilled cartridges, it will reduce the life of the printer.
And we will get an error "cartridge problem".
Plaese use the below cartridges, which are compatible with this printer.
HP 02 Black 660 pages
HP 02 Black Twin Pack 1320 pages
HP 02 Color Combo See single 02 inks
HP 02 Cyan 400 pages
HP 02 Light Cyan 240 photos
HP 02 Light Magenta 240 photos
HP 02 Magenta 370 pages
HP 02 Photo Value Pack 150 photos
HP 02 Yellow 500 pages
HP 02XL Cyan 600 pages

Hp photosmart c4380 replacing color ink cartridge with cartridge 99 not fitting


There is some confusion about the 99 cartridge. The info for the C4380 says that the 99 Photo cartridge is an option, but HP's website doesn't show the 99 cartridge as compatable with the C4380. It goes from C4280 to C4385.

Here is their list of compatable printers: HP 99 Cartridge Compatability

I would suggest you contact HP via email and get some clarification whether it will or will not work.

Here is a link to their Contact page: HP Contact

Sorry I couldn't be more help.
