    Hi, I bought a colour toner from the UK and a black one from NZ for the C3180 and the printer refused to work. HP said both toners have to come from the same country, and you must change the zone on the printer every time you use it in a different country. Any ideas on how to change the regional zoning and avoid having to buy toners that were purchased from the same country? Cheers

I bought the C4180 in Canada and now living in the Netherlands... here is what you need to do...

If you buy the printer in one country and move to another, having to buy the required printer cartridge in the new country, then you need to contact HP Support to get the regional settings changed to accept the new printer cartridges. You can have the regional settings changed three times max. (for 3 different countries)

You cannot configure this yourself through the printer menu or the computer.

The only other option is to use cartridhges from the same country that you brought the printer in.

SOURCE: how to change zone/region for HP Photosmart C3180

A RESET HAS TO BE DONE ON THE PRINTER. NO OTHER WAY POSSIBLE WITHOUT DOING A RESET. CALL UP CUSTOMER CARE. WAIT FOR A CALL FROM THE BACK END TEAM...THEY WOULD ASSIST YOU WITH IT WITHIN 24 HOURS. RESET WOULD BE DONE FOR REGIONALIZATION ISSUE. NOTE : ONLY 3 MAXIMUM RESETS POSSIBLE FOR THE UNIT.

SOURCE: change regional code from europe to us for hp Photosmart C3180

Currently, it's a very convoluted process involving a phone call to HP tech support. Unless things have changed, you are also restricted to changing the region code 3 times over the lifetime of the printer. Having said that...see this page here at FixYa:

I have a HP Photosmart C3180 that I bought in the US and now trying to install UK cartridges, but it tells me that the cartridge is incorrect. How do I re-set the printer to accept the UK cartridges?


The reason behind this is the regionalization capability of your product. The printer sets its region/zone after printing a few pages with a particular ink cartridge, once the region/zone is set, the printer would only recognize ink cartridges that are bought from the region/zone it's set to. You can click on the link to determine the compatible cartridges that you may use with your printer.

Only certain cartridges are compatible with your product. This document lists compatible cartridges by country/region. Use one of the following methods to check which cartridges are compatible with your product.Click on the link below for more information.

Changing regional settings


Hey Regional setting are only for computer, they does not do anything with the printer setting. Check out the device manager entries if showing the drivers are correctly installed. Also check that you have the right updates for printer from Microsoft.com

HP Photosmart all in one C3180


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.
