I had thed same problem. after hours of trying different options i finally got it to work. i have a hp 3210 that i brought from the usa to irelnad and when i put in irish cartrtidges it said " this printer is cinfigured to use 02 cartridges" Iriss cartridges are 363. so what i done was , while the printer was turned on i held down the " Black" button and the "Color" button at the same time. Keeping them held I powered off the printer , keeping them held until the printer was completely powered off. when i turned the printer back on the region had being reset and it asked me to choose my language and country. chose " Ireland". Now works!!!

I am in South Africa and have been given a new toner cartridge from a European visitor. When installed my printer says " error cartridge incompatible" How do I solve this? JJ


If there is a possibility to set your printer to the region that the toner cartridge is used in, then that most likely is the only option. For example if this cartridge is for European machines, set your printer location to "Europe" http://www.303electronics.com/

Incompatabe ink cartridge?


Yes it could be the problem. Try and get a different print cartridge and if it doesn't work you may just have to get a new printer.

I bought a Samsung BD C6900 from USA designed for region 1 and A . Living in Europe I cannot play my european DVDs and BDs ? Are there any solutions to change the region code ?


Here is a solution: http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks/samsung-bd-c6900/10895

Please note, however, that even after region code hack, it may remain NTSC only, so if you are planning to play European DVDs recorded with PAL system, it may not work.

Change region codess on printer hp c3180


Hi ,
Let me fist inform you that the question you asked for is related to "regionalization" of the printers . It is very particular to HP printers.
You can just regionalize your printer thrice in the enitre printer lifetime - not more than that. And the codes you are referring to - they are not there somewhere - they have to be logged in by the back end team who decode the "10-tap test" to re-enter the codes for regionalization so that the printer becomes compatible in the region you are using it in.
The cartridges even change in every country to make the printer work - let me state you how.....as per www.hp.com
HP Photosmart C3100 All-in-One series This product uses regionalized ink supplies, so the inkjet print cartridges for the product depends on where you are in the world. If you do not know which pen regionalization zone you are in, click here to view the Regionalization Country-to-Zone Mapping Table . Once you know the zone, you can identify the cartridges used in this product. Cartridge Description Zone 1 Zone 2 Zone 3 Zone 4 black inkjet print cartridge HP 92 HP 336 HP 132 HP 850 tri-color inkjet print cartridge HP 93 HP 342 HP 136 HP 854 black inkjet print cartridge Not availaible HP 338 HP 131 Not available tri-color inkjet print cartridge HP 95* HP 343 HP 135 HP 855 photo inkjet print cartridge HP 99 HP 348 HP 138 HP 858 *The HP 95 is not compatible with printers sold only in North America; instead, use the HP 93 Tri-color cartridge. Refer to the link to understand how the world is divided into 4 zones - http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bpa00586&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=1146331#zone_mapping And you can beleive into what i say as I work for HP printers....! the best i would suggest is to call up Technical / Customer Care centre and tell them you need to reset....they will assist you for 10-tap test and ask you to send them the 10-tap test and the Proof of Purchase of the region cartridges.....and then wait for the back end team to call you within the next 48 hours.

Regional Codes for Europe


Hi Dave,

I looked at the problem you have, I worked with HP before in All-in-one.
My personel advice is that please do not make any changes on your own.
The printer region can be changed only three times, so be carefull.

I suggest you to contact HP chat support, this support is free of cost.

Please click on the web link given below and select your product and start over with an online HP technician.

Have a great day!

My suggestion: Don't buy HP. I have the same region coding problem. All I want to do is buy HP ink, put it in my HP printer and print stuff. Too hard. I've wasted 30 pounds on ink and another 30 pounds on "support" phone calls to HP. Hopeless. I will never buy HP again. Waste of time and money.
