Hello, a friend gave me his printer and apparently he never set it up. I bought new ink cartridges but it is asking for the startup ink cartridges which I do not have. I am seeing through google there are ways to bypass this but I am unable to find instructions for this model. Does anyone know how to bypass on the office jet 5255?
I have sent you a private message with the steps to bypass the setup ink message which is specific to your printer. Check next to your profile Name, you should see a little blue envelope, please click on it.
Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
