Un-install the printer and download drivers from HP. This link will take you to "choose your operating system" at HP. These will be up to date and may solve your error message.

SOURCE: How do you reset the ink levels on HP Photosmart

Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

SOURCE: Region Codes for Photosmart C4380

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.

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

I have moved to Australia with a HP C4180 Inkjet printer but the correct cartridge in Australia produces an error message. How do I regionalise my printer so it will accept Australian HP cartridges?


Call HP for Ink Regionalization. 1-800-4746836

You dont have to try it by yourself because in HP Techsupport its one of the very tough issue we handle.There are only 50 failed attempts limited to regionalize it. 3 Regionalization limited for every printer is allowed.So be careful not to risk trying.

And aside from that the process in doing that is very technical.By calling HP they can provide you options specially if your migration to Australia is not permanent.

Hope I help you a bit.

My uk printer photo smart C4180 is not recognising black ink98 and colour95. i cant find any other suitable inks in australia


Buddy you need to contact HP Support. Your printer which you bought and were using in UK is not regionalized for Australia so contact Australia HP Support and get your printer set to that region and then the cartridges will work which you buy in Australia.

Dont worry if your printer is out of warranty,You will get free support because you are facing regionalization.

The disc's region is incorrect. what is mean by this????


Hello,

Region codes is a built-in feature of the DVD system designed to control where discs are viewed and distributed. All DVD hardware and software is coded using one of six numbers ( DVDs Regions 0 , 7 and 8 are special cases - see below ). The U.S. and Canada use Region 1. Region 2 discs are used in the U.K. , Europe and Japan . While Australia and the Caribbean use Region 4. These codes determine where the discs can be played.

Your console must match the discs region code.
This is not the case so you wont be able to play with this game.

Hope it helped.
