Ink system failure

Getting a error 0xc18a101 Ink System Failure - error code 0xc18a0101

THANK YOU!!! I tried more than several solution tips and nothing worked. This one did!

It's not even the same model as the one listed, but I followed Steps 1 and 2 - every step of instruction was just as described - and I've got my printer back! Thanks again!

    ink system failure

  • smcory Dec 09, 2008

    Problem started with repeated warning message that Yellow Ink was low (when it was actually nearly full), followed by warnings that Yellow Ink was now empty (when I had replaced Yellow cartridge with a new full one), Still said Yellow empty, and was followed by total shutdown of all functions "to prevent damage to printer". I have error code: Oxc 18a0306 and it says " Ink System Failure". Help.

    HP Photosmart C7180 will not accept new '02' yellow ink cartridge and repeatedly states 'printer does not have enough ink to ensure printer health. The empty ink cartridge must be replaced to resume.' This is the 2nd HP '02'yellow I've bought and it continues to say the same.

Error code OXC4B827F


This is an Ink System Failure message. I would try this guide. 'Ink System Failure' or a '0x...' or a 'C2...' Error Message Displays on the Front Panel. To help resolve the issue.
If that doesn't work, please call our technical support at 800-474-6836. If you live outside the US/Canada Region, please click the link below to get the support number for your region. http://www.hp.com/cgi-bin/hpsupport/index.pl.

Error 0xc18a0101 persists. Have tried solution given earlier for 0xc18a0001 without success. Ink system failure not resetting; all cartridges are full.


Its tricky mechanism, once printer detects ink system failed it cannot be resetted. Do this take out cartridges from printer., open right cover., find out logic card., remove cmos battery., wait for 5 minutes., refix batyery., power on the printer., follow the screen messges ... I hope it will solve the issue..
