I purchased this printer about a year ago. Took it out of the box, tossed the box. The printer sat in my office, unused. Now I am trying to get it set up - so, I went and bought ink for it but the setup is telling me I HAVE to use the "set up ink cartridges." Well, I obviously don't have those anymore. They were accidentally thrown away. Over a year ago. The "support" I've received via HPsupport is saying this can't be bypassed and I should return the printer to the retailer. Well, without a box, or a receipt, and being a purchase 1+ years ago, returning is NOT an option.
Surely there's a way to setup the printer with the ink I purchased and paid for?
Can I please receive a direct message to help solve this issue?
