HP Printer plugged into wrong voltage

I have inadverdently plugged my brand new LaserJet2605 colour printer (product Q7821A) into a 240v socket instead of 110/115 stepdown transformer.I managed to quickly pull the plug but alas I think its blown.Is there any chance to recover this machine or replace what has fused - it made a hissing sound and let off some steam?? before it was disengaged.I have since replugged it into the proper voltage but with no response.I would be grateful if anyone could guide me on this one.Thanks for your help.

    You might "just" have blown the power supply, take it apart and see if you cant get a new one.

    These days electronic usually are protected between power supply and the rest of the electronic.

You can source the replacement part you are after from HP. If it is available your should be able to find it at
This is your best bet, however I should warn you that you may have an issue getting a 110v power sup unless you are in the US. Having said that your power outlet is 240v, I will assume you are not. You can order it, but you might be waiting for some time to get it.

I had costco refill my color and my black cartridges but it does not recognize the cartridge the error message reads, "cartridge on left is not intended for this printer", what can I do?

best thing to do is get rid of the used cartridges and use HP OEM ink products- they might be costly but will work when asked to and wont ruin the inside of your printer and force you to buy a new one- once you have used a third party ink all your HP warranties were nullified,
THIRD PARTY INKS are NOT the way forward. their ink pigments are usually the wrong type and often not the right shade of colour, which will make colour prints look dull or poor colour calibration.

Misrepresented product?

No manufacturing process is flawless. These things happen. Return to staples for an exchange. Most managers will exchange ink even after the 14 days. If they dont, then buy new ones and recycle the nonworking ones for $3 on your rewards statement. I have seen people come back the same day after they bought a brand new HP ink cartrige beucase it does not work. Its not that they had the wrong cartridge, its just that it was a bad one.
