This works on the F30, F60, and F80. Resetting the Waste Ink Volume Counter 1) Enter SERVICE MODE.--- By pressing Menu-Copy-# 2) Select TEST MODE. 3) Select  PRINTER TEST in TEST MODE. 4) Select 3. [EEPROM CLEAR]. 5) Select 0. [INK COUNT]. 6) Press the [OK] key. 7) Press the [Stop/Reset] key (returning to the state of 3)), and then press the [ON/OFF] key.
Skip step (6) since there is no [OK] key on F30 printers. Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

You will need to contact HP at the support number they provided, tell them that you have a US region printer and need it reset to the UK. The cartridge numbers are different and a US region printer will not accept UK cartridges.
They can do the reset over the phone and there should not be any charge for this. You will need to be at your computer as they will need to have you send some commands to the printer. The reset procedure is not available through the online chat.
This will only need to be done once, after the reset procedure the printer will properly accept the UK cartridges (but no longer accept US cartridges....).
