Re: Regional Codes for Europe
I looked at the problem you have, I worked with HP before in All-in-one.
My personel advice is that please do not make any changes on your own.
The printer region can be changed only three times, so be carefull.
I suggest you to contact HP chat support, this support is free of cost.
Please click on the web link given below and select your product and start over with an online HP technician.

If there is a possibility to set your printer to the region that the toner cartridge is used in, then that most likely is the only option. For example if this cartridge is for European machines, set your printer location to "Europe" http://www.303electronics.com/
I have the same kind of problem. It does not read my Kingdom Hearts 3D cartridge at all, regardless of any way I tried to make it read it. I heard it may have something to do with regional difference and it's true - the 3DS comes from USA, while the game from Europe. While I have Pokemon Diamond cartridge, which is also from Europe and it reads it just fine. Does it mean the regional difference matters only in case of 3DS cartridges? If not, how can I solve my problem?
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
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:
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.
