How do i repair: hp Photosmart C7280 Printer ink system failure error: Oxc18a0101


Try holding down the ok -- cancel -- black -- color buttons with 4 fingers while at the same time powering the unit off. Keep them held down till it is off. Then turn it back on normally & it should try to do "Maintenance" & you hear a whirling noise --- that is the ink pump spinning to try & pump in ink to the print head.
Here are the details. Got the Ink System Failure message. The error code shows was '0xc18a0005'. The tech had me press and hold the '*' key on the key pad, then press the '#' key and release them both. Then he had me enter '123' to enter maintenance mode. He then had me press the right arrow (beside the OK button) until System Config. menu appeared on panel. Then pressed OK two times to clear the error condition, then cancel two or three times to return to the top menu. Then powered off and back on, printed a test page just fine, copied a document fine.

Experiencing a problem with an HP Photosmart C7280 All-in-one printer, after the yellow ink cartridge was replaced a 'change the cartridge' screen comes up when trying to print, even though the printer shows the new ink levels are OK with the newly installed yellow cartridge. Just installed the current updates for the HP C7280 and problem still persists. Any thoughts?
