HP 3110- USA Ink cartridge -wont work in UK

  neilybonks 11:30 27 Apr 2008

I bought two 6 packs of HP cartridges for my UK 3110 all in one printer.
When I inserted cartridge in my printer-this printer only accespts 363 cartridges.

Although the US ones are identical, they are named 02 which I now understand to be region1, which is USA.
363 are region 2 - Europe.
HP wanted Europeans to purchase the more expensive ones.
I tries ring their customer services, but severe language difficulties, a very expensive call rate and 10 minute music caused me to disconnect.

I understand there is a facility to alter my printer to accept other regions cartridges-can any one assist please.

I do see 363/02 sold on e bay but none of the sellers can confirm the compabability of their cartridges

Thank you

click here - someone says you can change the region settings by changing the language; might be worth a shot but it strikes me that they may have mixed up ideas about what they want to change.
