How to correct error 07A74DD6 and get the photosmart boot

The printer starts booting up then the screen change to amber with an error 07A74DD6. the error stays for about 8 seconds then the printer tries to start up again for few seconds then the amber screen comes on with the same error message. I followed the instruction in the manuals by unplugging the power for 10 seconds and also by removing the battery for 10 seconds then powering it up ; but the printer did not correct itself. I disconnected the power for 30 minutes and reboot the printer; still the error shows up. Your assistance is requested. Apparently others have the same problem too. I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Thanks ..... Shouhda

    I have the same problem, it continues to blink the 07A74DD6 message and nothing I've tried worked which includes new ink cartrige and cleaning it with Q-tips and alcohol.

    I have this same problem and I have heard that it will help by changing the powercord. I don't know if it will work but I will give it a try!! :)

Talked to HP tech support today- the "Tech" said these errors are "internal hardware issues". Since HP has "no service locations for printers"- The only solution is.... TO BUY A NEW PRINTER! (of course $$$) Why did we not think of that!

Error number 0xc18a0301 on HP printers Follow the below steps on the front panel of the All-in-One printer:
A. - Press and Hold the “Print Photos” & “Red Eye Removal” buttons. Release both buttons. Display should say “Enter Special Key Combo”
B. - Press and release in sequence “Red Eye Removal”, “Print Photos”, “Red Eye Removal”
Display says "enter special key combo"
Press and release in sequence “Red Eye Removal”, “Print Photos”, “Red Eye Removal” .

If "support COxxFN0723BR" appears with "uiaux" message, perform the below steps:
2. Press and release the right arrow button until the display says “System Configuration Menu”. (on C8100 use Touch Screen)
3. Press and release the “OK” button.
4. Display should say “Hardware failure status”. If not there already, Arrow Key over to “Hardware failure status.

8. Press and release the “CANCEL” button as many times as necessary, so that, either the “Welcome to Photosmart Express” screen appears, or, the “Ink System Failure” screen appears. PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO PRINT AT THIS STAGE.
9. Using the Power Button, turn the unit OFF and unplug the power cable from back of the printer and wall outlet.
10. Wait 30 seconds for the power to get discharged and then plug the power cable into the wall outlet first and then into the back of the printer
11. Turn the unit on. The printer may display message “USE POWER BUTTON TO SHUTDOWN THE PRINTER” followed by “PRESS OK TO CONTINUE”. Press OK.

SOURCE: HP Photosmart 3310 all in way Error Ink System had Failed 0xc18a0101

I had this same exact problem. Try doing:
1. Unplug the power cord from printer.
2. Hold both o.k and Cancel simultaneously.
3. Plug the power cable while holding the buttons.

After I did this my printer reconfigured like it used to do and it was like it was new again.... well new plus a headache a managed to get while reading all these little posts. I hope this helps!

I turned on my Dell Dimension 4700 computer,but the amber light started to blink . I held the start up button for 5 seconds and the light went out. I tried to start it up again and got the same thing,...


Vaughn it sounds like the power supply is going bad, try another known good working power supply. If that doesn't work then the motherboard would need to be replaced. If the power supply isn't giving the correct voltages that could cause the computer not to turn on. If the motheboard isn't able to convert the voltages properly then the motherboard could be faulty.

Hp photosmart 7660 printer error: error initializing output device


This is a WordPerfect problem, not a printer problem. The PrintserverNN.exe program did not come up correctly. To resolve it, find the PrintserverNN.program somewhere in your Corel folder, usually in the Program folder. NN is the number of your version of WP, included in the name of the Printserver program. Right-click on that program and copy it, then go to the Startup folder in your Start Menu Programs folder and paste it as a shortcut so it will start whenever your computer boots up.
Restart your computer and the problem should be solved.

As the previous message stated, I had the same problem and it was resolved by making sure that I used the original power cable. I couldn't find it at first and tried with three others all with the same error. Finally it was resolved by using the original.
