    this fix does not work
    Item 1 OK
    Item 2 OK
    Item 3 best selection option available is 'Reports Menu' (unit does not display the term "special reports"
    item 4 best selection option available is ' Print-Mech" (unit doesnot dispaly the term "print cartridges")
    If I then press OK on the Print-mech option it asks for a "code =" (it does not print a page of code). any suggestions?

All you can change is the language and this will not change the tip of cartridges that it uses...try to refil the original ones..and after that to reset the counter for them if it do not sees them ...or ..order the same ones from ebay ..if they are not available in Australia ...cause if it is made for certain tip of cartridges it will work only with them ..
another thing that you can do is to adapt to work with a Ciss unit ..like in this link ..
this is an external feeding unit that adapts in the cartridges area..and are refillable and last much more..and with a better percentage for use..

here some models of cartridges on ebay ..
the european model..

here the 177 Im not sure if it is the same with the European ..but I know that the European one is not 02 and not fits the American 02 model..

You will need to contact HP and have a regionalization reset performed. You will need to have access to your computer and printer while conversing with HP and will need a set of new cartridges as the old cartridges will no longer work after the reset. There should not be any charge for the regionaloization reset, it is covered by the cartridge warranty.
How ever if you want to try please follow these steps:
1. Press * and # keys to bring up the "Mfg Commands" screen. I assume this is only used by HP service staff.
2. The "Mfg Commands" screen asks you to "Enter special key combo" which is 123 then press ok
3. Use the right arrow key to step through the menus until you find the "special Reports" menu then press ok.
4. Use the right arrow key again to find the "print Cartridges" menu and press ok
5. This will print out a page with numbers ranging from 11. to 74. This page will print regardless of the print cartridges in the printer and whether they are valid print cartridges.
6. The numbers of interest to HP support will be 11,21,25,52,62
7. They will use the above information to generate a new set of five lots of 4 numbers.
8. You will need to enter the 5 lots of 4 numbers onto a windows PC which has the HP drivers installed.
9. On a windows PC with HP drivers installed open notepad and select print to bring up the printer dialog .
10. click on "preferences" in the print dialog window to open the HP preferences dialogue.
11. Holding down the control key double click the HP icon in the bottom left corner of the preferences dialogue to open a service maintenance menu which will allow you to enter 5 lots of 4 digit numbers which HP staff will provide.
12. once you have entered the 5 lots of 4 numbers and press ok a data file is sent to the printer which changes its region settings.
13. You then have to switch the printer off for about 1 minute then back on again and your new cartridges should now be valid.

I have moved to Australia with a HP C4180 Inkjet printer but the correct cartridge in Australia produces an error message. How do I regionalise my printer so it will accept Australian HP cartridges?


Call HP for Ink Regionalization. 1-800-4746836

You dont have to try it by yourself because in HP Techsupport its one of the very tough issue we handle.There are only 50 failed attempts limited to regionalize it. 3 Regionalization limited for every printer is allowed.So be careful not to risk trying.

And aside from that the process in doing that is very technical.By calling HP they can provide you options specially if your migration to Australia is not permanent.

Hope I help you a bit.

You can also send me questions on my

personal email - christian4122@yahoo

My uk printer photo smart C4180 is not recognising black ink98 and colour95. i cant find any other suitable inks in australia


Buddy you need to contact HP Support. Your printer which you bought and were using in UK is not regionalized for Australia so contact Australia HP Support and get your printer set to that region and then the cartridges will work which you buy in Australia.

Dont worry if your printer is out of warranty,You will get free support because you are facing regionalization.

Don't talk to Level 1 technicians talk either to Supervisors or Level 2 Tech

Have bought HP Photosmart c6183 from UAE, where it used to work on 177 cartridge. Shifted to Singapore but cannot find a compatible cartridge. 02 Cartridge is compatible with same series but printer says...


Sorry, only a 177 will work. HP is very specific with their cartridges. There are many web sites that will refil this cartridge for you. They send you the newly refilled one and you put yours in the package they sent theirs in for a credit when they get it back to their facility. At least it will be a 177.

Re-configuring for european ink cartridges


i had thed same problem. after hours of trying different options i finally got it to work. i have a hp 3210 that i brought from the usa to irelnad and when i put in irish cartrtidges it said " this printer is cinfigured to use 02 cartridges" Iriss cartridges are 363. so what i done was , while the printer was turned on i held down the " Black" button and the "Color" button at the same time. Keeping them held I powered off the printer , keeping them held until the printer was completely powered off. when i turned the printer back on the region had being reset and it asked me to choose my language and country. chose " Ireland". Now works!!!

Use HP 363 cartridges instead of 177 for my Photosmart C7183


Phone HP.  After about a month hanging on, on their premium rate number, you'll finally be put through to someone who doesn't understand the problem.  Then, after your beard has grown another inch or two, if you're lucky, you'll actually get someone who understands the problem.  Some birthday's later, you'll be connected to a technician who can talk you through a simple number of keystrokes to re-configure the printer.
Reckon this cost me 30 UK pounds - seriously -  I had to call five times  but eventually it was done.

Change region codess on printer hp c3180


Hi ,
Let me fist inform you that the question you asked for is related to "regionalization" of the printers . It is very particular to HP printers.
You can just regionalize your printer thrice in the enitre printer lifetime - not more than that. And the codes you are referring to - they are not there somewhere - they have to be logged in by the back end team who decode the "10-tap test" to re-enter the codes for regionalization so that the printer becomes compatible in the region you are using it in.
The cartridges even change in every country to make the printer work - let me state you how.....as per www.hp.com
HP Photosmart C3100 All-in-One series This product uses regionalized ink supplies, so the inkjet print cartridges for the product depends on where you are in the world. If you do not know which pen regionalization zone you are in, click here to view the Regionalization Country-to-Zone Mapping Table . Once you know the zone, you can identify the cartridges used in this product. Cartridge Description Zone 1 Zone 2 Zone 3 Zone 4 black inkjet print cartridge HP 92 HP 336 HP 132 HP 850 tri-color inkjet print cartridge HP 93 HP 342 HP 136 HP 854 black inkjet print cartridge Not availaible HP 338 HP 131 Not available tri-color inkjet print cartridge HP 95* HP 343 HP 135 HP 855 photo inkjet print cartridge HP 99 HP 348 HP 138 HP 858 *The HP 95 is not compatible with printers sold only in North America; instead, use the HP 93 Tri-color cartridge. Refer to the link to understand how the world is divided into 4 zones - http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bpa00586&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=1146331#zone_mapping And you can beleive into what i say as I work for HP printers....! the best i would suggest is to call up Technical / Customer Care centre and tell them you need to reset....they will assist you for 10-tap test and ask you to send them the 10-tap test and the Proof of Purchase of the region cartridges.....and then wait for the back end team to call you within the next 48 hours.

Change region codess on printer hp c3180


I have just moved from the US to Shanghai with my HP C7280 printer. Bought some new cartridges from the HP dealer in Shanghai after our US supply ran out. Got the 'Incorrect Ink Cartridge' message on the printer after installing them, which the dealer probably knew I would get and didn't tell me, which I'm assuming is what you got.
My experience was to use the 'Chat' function on the HP.com web site in the Support area. The good news is that they solved my problem, the bad news is that it took 1 1/2 hours and is the most convoluted process I've experienced in years. There is a little 'voodoo' going on the background......... after having me find several values, including cartridge serial number values (no not the cartridge number on the cartridge), reset values, and others I can't remember, he said he had to go 'calculate' and he then came back with 5 four digit numbers I had to enter after going to Windows Control Panel -->Printers and after getting my printer selected and the Preferences screen displayed, clicking on the HP logo while holding the CRTL key down (I kid you not).

Sooooooo, I believe the only solution is to use HP Support and to also write letters complaining about how really, really, really stupid this process is. And being the conspiracy theorist that I can be, HP probably was seeing lost revenue from people buying cartridges that are cheaper in parts of the world and shipping them to where HP is, ahem, making a killing and padding their profits.......
Good Luck
