Question about HP Photosmart C3180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
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.

Open the printer from the "Printers and Faxes" folder and go to Printer -> Properties
On the "General" tab, click "Printing Preferences"
Now, hold down the CTRL key and double click on the HP logo in the bottom corner.
Enter these codes in the top five boxes:
0229, 8572, 8308, 5992, 4000.
The "total" box should now read 27047

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.

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:
HP Tech Support number is: 1-800-474-6836
