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.

Re-regionalise printer c309a


You need to contact HP to change your printer to accept the cartridges. The cartridges have their own warranty and HP should help you get them to work even if your printer is out of warranty. This page explains a little more.

My printer has not been hooked up for a good 6 months. I recently installed it again on a brand new laptop, and everything installed correctly however when I send a print job to it, the pages come up...


HI!

When the printers are out of action for a while and since its alcohol based ink it tends to evaporate and glogg the head or ink!The best thing to do is to get new cartridges or if it has a separate printhead replace it!!

Hope it helps!!

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

HP PSC 2355 incorrect print cartridges error message


not quiet a solution dugguly but i've just had the same problem in reverse, i moved to the us with same printer, ink ran dry, it won't take hp94. after 3 phone calls and 4 emails with hp i learned that all hp printers sold after 2004 are regionalised, therefore a us printer will NOT WORK with UK bough cartridges and vice-a-versa. the only way round this is to call the HP support and ask to be taken through the step by step guide to reseting the region of your printer to the UK regional setting OR and this is my option, get friends/family in the US to ship US cartridges to you in the UK. Too bad as Tesco do a good line in gneric cartridges - Good luck - mattw

Incorrect Cartridge Print cartridge in right stall not supported?


I changed the cartridge and it now works. I resent this though because it had been merrily printing before it decided it would stop and I have had to waste a three quarters full cartridge! I just hope the new one does not go the same way
