Bypass Setup Cartridges

DeskJet 2652

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?


Thank you.
