Deskjet region change from UAE to India

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello Team,

I purchased my HP Deskjet Ink Advantage 2540 printer from Dubai, UAE. I moved to India and the ink catridges 650 is not available here. Instead I purchased 678 catridges which are available here. But when I use them, I get 'Incompatible Catridges' error. Could you please guide me to update/change my region to India?

Update to the viewers of this post: 

1. HP support engineer helped to reset the device region, but that still didnt solve the problem.

2. I was advised to contact PAID customer support for a resolution.

 

The customer support for my region either goes to an IVR or no response. I will try a last attempt if they can fix this, if not resolved then will just throw away this HP printer & cartridge in garbage.

 

BEWARE OF THIS RIDICULOUS PROBLEM OF HP PRINTERS, BEFORE BUYING. SALES GUYS WONT TELL YOU ABOUT IT. 🙂
