@DaddyYow Welcome to HP Community!


I understand that you would like to change the region of the printer.


To do a printer region reset you need to meet the following conditions: 


1. The printer should be connected using a printer USB cable to the computer. 

2. You need to have the printer full feature software installed on your computer. 

3. You need to have all the cartridges either from the region from where the printer was purchased originally or the new region to which you want to reset it to. 


If you meet the above conditions follow the below steps:  


1. Launch the printer software from the desktop icon or Or, from the Start menu, click Start, All Programs, HP, the Product Name, and then the Product Name again. 

2. Double-click the Estimated Ink Levels icon in the printer software. The Estimated Ink Levels window opens. 

3. Press and hold the CTRL and SHIFT keys, and then right-click anywhere in the Estimated Ink Levels window, except for a button. The Set New Region window opens. 

4. If the Set New Region window fails to open, right-click to the right and left of the Estimated Ink Levels window.
