Hi. I had a similar problem with an european printer, which I tried to use in Latin America. The princer can be regionalized, but I think you have to call or e-mail Hewlett Packard service, which will give you instructions. You need to install 2 ink cartridges from the same region before regionalization.
Greetings.
K. Adam.

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

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.

You have to regionalise your printer to work with the cartridges you have to put in the cartridge code into the printer and only HP technicians can do it and as your printer is OOW there will be a charge on this

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 CX4100 won't accept non-genuine ink cartridges


ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That is your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .


IF YOU ARE USING GENERIC CARTRIDGES, MAYBE IT WOULD BE BETTER IF YOU DISABLE THE INK MONITOR.

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

I need to get a regionalization reset for my HP, to change from America to UK in order to accept UK print cartridges.


You will need much more than that. You will also need a 220 Volt Power supply and connections.

I will probably be cheaper to purchase a new printer.

How can i let my printer to detect and accept the ink?


I have the same problem. According to another site I visited you will not be able to solve your problem by refilling the 28 cartridge (black ink). You will need to purchase a 28A ink cartridge which is refillable.

Change region code for ink cartridges


I've recently moved from the UK to the US and have successfully changed the region on my Deskjet 6840. Your biggest challenge is going to be navigating through HP's awful customer service (as this is the only way to get it done - don't waste time googling for ways to do it yourself).

After frustrating hours with their on-line tech support, and a useless guy telling me that what I was asking couldn't be done (I should just buy a new printer, apparently!), I turned to phone support.

A very helpful guy on their phone support described to me exactly what was needed. However, he said that it was hardly ever done, many of the tech support people had no experience of it, and that he wasn't allowed to do it himself - I would have to be transferred to "Level 2" tech support. As my printer was out of warranty, this was going to cost me around 40 bucks (I forget the exact amount). Or he said, I could try the online support which, he admitted, was a bit of a lottery.

Given I now understood the "HP terminology" to use, I decided to try online support once more. Probably partly due to the clearer technical description I was able to give, and partly because the person I was connected to wasn't a clueless idiot this time, it was finally resolved pretty smoothly.

Total time taken: 4-5 hours - get comfy, try to not get too frustrated, and don't give up!
