I need to reset UK printer to accept US inks

I moved to the US from the UK and need to replace my ink cartridges. The printer/ink is regionalised. I have tried to get HP to help me solve this (which their website says they can), but to no avail. I now have 3 replacement cartridges that won't work! HELP!!

I have the same issue. Called HP support and they were not able to change the region code.

I am complaint to HP trhough all possible ways, would suggest you to do the same. If we are loud enough, maybe they will rememebr what customers menas...

if I do not have a solution I am plannign on buy whatever other printers exist, with good quality that do not use this stupi solution.

One way to solve your problem is to use refill kits, as then you use the old cartridges with the righ region codes - so much for HP supporting us to buy original supplies...

Re-regionalise printer c309a


You need to contact HP to change your printer to accept the cartridges. The cartridges have their own warranty and HP should help you get them to work even if your printer is out of warranty. This page explains a little more.

HP deskjet D1660 - how to regionalise the cartridges


Hello there,

For regionalized ink, you need to call their customer care number located on the sticker of the unit.

They will help you regionalise your cartridges. It happened to me already and they just need to set something on your printer.

Please feel free to leave a testimonial if this works and please do not forget to click 4 thumbs.

Cheers!

Epson Stylus TX400. Refuses to accept either compatable or refilled cartridges?


Epson TX400 is so sensitive in terms of ink cartridges, you can only replace a refilled ink cartridge in this type of printer if the cartridge has an automatic ink reseter chip. When you replace a cartridge in your printer, it will automatically register the ink level in the chip. So you need an ink reseter chip to replace a new refilled cartridge.

HP PSC 2355 incorrect print cartridges error message


not quiet a solution dugguly but i've just had the same problem in reverse, i moved to the us with same printer, ink ran dry, it won't take hp94. after 3 phone calls and 4 emails with hp i learned that all hp printers sold after 2004 are regionalised, therefore a us printer will NOT WORK with UK bough cartridges and vice-a-versa. the only way round this is to call the HP support and ask to be taken through the step by step guide to reseting the region of your printer to the UK regional setting OR and this is my option, get friends/family in the US to ship US cartridges to you in the UK. Too bad as Tesco do a good line in gneric cartridges - Good luck - mattw

Ink cartridge cannot be used after initialization


The following are common issues.

The following ink cartridges cannot be used after device initialization and must be replaced

Cause The wrong ink cartridge(s) are installed.
Solution The indicated ink cartridge(s) cannot be used after the device has undergone first time setup. Replace the ink cartridge(s) with the appropriate ink cartridges for the HP All-in-One. To find out the reorder number for all the ink cartridges that the HP All-in-One supports, see the printed documentation that came with the HP All-in-One.
If you are using compatible cartridges make sure they are reset for use.


Ink cartridge problem
Cause The indicated ink cartridge(s) are missing or are damaged.
Solution Replace the indicated ink cartridge(s) immediately so that you can resume printing. If there are no ink cartridges missing from the HP All-in-One, the ink cartridge contacts might need to be cleaned. If there are no ink cartridges missing from the HP All-in-One, and you still receive this message after cleaning the ink cartridge contacts, you might have a damaged ink cartridge.

What do you mean, "regionalize?" Language or electrical?
