Solved!

how to do a regionalization reset?

HP Recommended
DeskJet 3050A
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Dear all,

 

I have a HP Deskjet 3050A All-in-One Printer J611a, which I purchased in Belgium with HP 301 cartridges. I currently live in the US (NY) where I couldn't find those cartridges. I saw that cartridges HP 61 black & tricolore were also compatible with my printer, but when I tried to install them I received the alert that "both cartridges are not compatible with this printer". After some research on the web, I figured out it has something to do with the settings for the region, and that we would need a regionalization reset to solve the problem. 

I've tried already to reinstall the software and drivers but it looks that isn't enough.

I was wondering if someone could help me to provide the right software and/or reset options.

 

Many thanks in advance

Jan

Hi @JANvs

Welcome to the HP Support Community. Thank you for the detailed information. I'd be happy to assist you.

 

Yes, we have to perform a region reset on the printer. Reinstalling the drivers would not help.

 

Find below the compatible ink cartridges for the printer

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.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.

Hi @Tovar

Welcome to the HP Support Community. To assist you better, I would like to know the following:

  • What model printer are you using?
  • Were the printer and the ink cartridges bought from different regions?
  • What is the error message that you get?

Keep me posted.

Hello, Kumar. My printer is a HP 1510. I bought it in India and used it for some time there with the recommended cartridges HP 802. I am currently living in Russia. I ran out of my Indian stock of HP802 and was instructed to buy in  Russian the  equivalent original HP 122. I inserted both the color and black HP 122 cartridges in the printer and the printer does not print anything. Both lights on the panel are blinking constantly. Thank you for your help
