Setup cartridges

HP Recommended

Hey guys.

My Printer had some issues and was not printing correctly. So I made a OOB-reset. Yup not my brightest decision.

Now i need to insert setup cartridges which is not possible because i used them when i bought the printer a few years ago.


Is there a way to bypass the setup cartriges?  Otherwise I'm screwed.


Thanks for your replies.

@Jojo45wow, Welcome to the HP Support Community!


Are you sure you performed an OOB reset on the printer?

OOB resets are done to bypass the use of setup ink cartridges. To reset the printer to its factory settings, a Semi-full reset is performed.


Perform the OOB reset again and then try using the regular ink cartridges.


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.

@Kumar0307 Thanks for replying to my post.


I'm quite sure that i have done an OOB reset.


So I've followed your steps and did another OOB reset but it doesn't seem to fix the problem. Still getting the same message.

I've seen that the cartridges have expired in September this year. Could this cause the problem? Or any other solutions? Semi/Partial/Full reset?


Thanks for your help.
