HP Photosmart C7280 All-In-One 02 Yellow Cartridge

Hi Guys, I am in trouble with my HP all-in-one. I have moved from Canada to Europe with my printer as well. Suddenly my yellow cartridge run out and I went to buy new replacement. But it did not work. I called HP customer support and they told me that the problem is in regional settings and that I should buy all cartridges European. I bought them. Then I have called support again, and they were not able to help because I did not have old American cartridges. We were not able to generate codes to change my printer regional settings without original cartridges. (Un)Fortunately I am missing only YELLOW cartridge, and this particular (No. 02 Yellow) one I am not able to buy anywhere in Europe. Now I am looking for someone who would be able to send me that Yellow Cartridge No.2 from US or Canada - it does not really matter if it is empty or full - I just need it to generate that ink cartridge codes. I will pay all expenses (best via Pay Pal).

And I have an advice for everybody. Do not move with your printer throughout continents because it does not pay! I paid $150, for printer, $50 for transportation, now 80EURO for cartridges and it still does not work. Besides box with printer is heavy and I had to carry it to post office, then from post office home... It really does not pay. I could buy a new one, or a similar now in Europe, but the only reason why I am not throwing it out is that I like this one. It is a good printer, fax, scanner and copier - simply all in one, and I invested so much in it that now it does not pay to throw it out. And ecology - why to throw really good printer out if it may work? And I am afraid that after your help guys I am going to like it even more (it would be like a disabled family member cured).
