Currently, it's a very convoluted process involving a phone call to HP tech support. Unless things have changed, you are also restricted to changing the region code 3 times over the lifetime of the printer. Having said that...see this page here at FixYa:

Hi All\r\nI bought a c309a in HongKong,And I am in Beijing. is there any way to change its region code for using local ink? thank you very much BR//Martin


contact hp support and ask them to change your region code. otherwise, you can use your old ink cartridges and refill them from a 3rd party instead, which is cheaper, but the ink is most likely to be of lower quality.

Region codes for France for a photosmart c3180 all in one


Well I had the exact same problem with a C3180 bought in the USA and I moved to France. I called the HP tech support and after I bought 5 brand new cartridges upon their recommendation we haven't been able to print the 10 tap test page

I recommend that you try doing that before you call them otherwise you will be wasting your time

To print the 10 tap test page you need to press simultaneously CANCEL and START COLOR COPY. I couldn't print the 10 tap test page because the printer will not recognize the cartridges bought in France (START COLOR COPY and START BLACK COPY blinking + E in front of COPIES)

If somebody knows an alternate method to print the 10 tap test page, please share it as this is the blocking point with HP support

Thanks

No problem.

Here is what you need to know:

The regional code for the US is (1).
You can change your DVD Region code up to 5 times on your Mac.

Review the information on DVD Regional codes via this Apple Support link to change the region code:
DVD Region Codes - DVD Player

Let me know if this Apple data helps!

Change region


hi peterute,

sorry there is no solution.

HP (maybe other manufacturers too) distribute locally. So the cartridges are more expensive here then anywhere else.
The costs are caused maybe by tax, logistics, but also by regional conditions.
F.e: Customers in Asia buy cartridges for lower costs than in Europe due to GDP.
So the only way is to call HP (phone, chat, mail) and request new codes for the printer. The codes will never be publicated to prevent missuse.

Hope it helps,
Henning
