HP Photosmart C3180 All-in-One

I bought it in NY and just bought replacement cartridges in Lisbon. I need to change the regional settings but the MacBook OS X Utility doesn't show me how to change the settings. Can you help? I saw a solution for Windows users on the FixYa site, but nothing for Mac users.

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.

Region codes for France for a photosmart c3180 all in one


Well I had the exact same problem with a C3180 bought in the USA and I moved to France. I called the HP tech support and after I bought 5 brand new cartridges upon their recommendation we haven't been able to print the 10 tap test page

I recommend that you try doing that before you call them otherwise you will be wasting your time

To print the 10 tap test page you need to press simultaneously CANCEL and START COLOR COPY. I couldn't print the 10 tap test page because the printer will not recognize the cartridges bought in France (START COLOR COPY and START BLACK COPY blinking + E in front of COPIES)

If somebody knows an alternate method to print the 10 tap test page, please share it as this is the blocking point with HP support

Thanks

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:

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

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.

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.
