Change printer region

HP Recommended
Officejet 8600 Pro
macOS 10.15 Catalina

My printer was purchased when I lived in UK several years ago. I have since moved to the Caribbean. I finally ran out of the UK cartridges and bought some US/Canada ones recently but they don't work in the printer. It looks like I need to change the region of the printer. HP no longer supports this printer so I can't get through to support via the means available on the website. This is still a good printer, it would be a waste to replace it with a new printer. Can someone tell me how to change the region on this printer?

Hi @nunzioc13,


I'd like to help!


The reset instructions are specific for your printer and performing those steps on a different printer may brick the device. 

I've sent you a private message with reset instructions, follow the reset instruction to perform a full reset and re-initialize the printer. 


In order to access your private messages, click the private message icon on the upper right corner of your HP Forums profile, next to your profile Name or simply click on this link.


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
