I wish to change the region of my printer so my ink cartridges work

HP Recommended
Deskjet 2050
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I just blew the dust off of my old Deskjet 2050 because I need it to print some important documents. The printer has two 61 ink cartridges which apparently are compatible but it appears that my printer seems to be configured for another region since the model 120 of ink cartridges. I think it has the latin-american configuration so I need to change it to the compatible region for the 61 ink cartridges. I just simply can't find the 120 ink cartridges, can't even go outside because of Covid-19 and don't really want to spend money on ink. I saw a video on YouTube titled "HP printer ink cartridge region reset change" which shows how the process is done and I wish to do the same procedure. 


Please help me with this matter.
