HP Deskjet 6980

I purchased a HP Deskjet 6980 in Europe and have moved to the US. How do I change the region code of my printer so that US purchased cartridges will work?

    Tried new drivers, still will not recognize US cartridges.

    It has everything to do with the ink cartridges, HP region codes them as stated on HP's online help site.

    I have the same problem. Can any one help me. I have a photosmart 375 and an Officejet 6313, both purchased in Dubai. I am now in Hongkong and cannot use either of the printers.

    Any help greatly appreciated. I have been told that HP will do the re-coding for me - at a cost of 40 US Dollars each - could almost buy new printers for that much!

    well...the region code has nothing to do with the ink cartridges. but you'll figure that out, by referencing the online help from HP..

I have an HP Deskjet 6980. After changing the black ink cartridge i tried to print. The printer takes the paper but doesnt print, just the Power and the resume lights are blinking. If I press the resume...


The printer might be working but the cartridge is not connected properly. Just open your printer, remove the cartridge and replace it back in its right position.

How to change black ink cartridge of HP Deskjet 6980


Lift the cover up.

The ink jet carriage should park in the center of the carriage.

Gently lift on the front of the ink jet until it removes. Some you have to lift up and some you have to lift down on. Just be careful.

HP inkjet cartridges tell you on the front of the stick by a dot weather it is tri color or black.
