Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

By Terry Richardson: I just had this exact issue with my C7280. I called HP Tech support, got a body in Bangalore or someplace, and was pleasantly surprised that they were prompt and knowledgeable, and solved the issue very quickly after transferring my call one time to a hardware support expert.
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.
I hope this help those who have similar issues.

Call HP as stated above (18004746836). My error code was 0xc05d0381. I got it after I replaced the black ink cartridge. The error code resulted in a replacement unit, with no possible fix. Fortunately under warranty, they delivered

This is a serious hardware issue in the unit and in most cases , the unit needs to be replaced, so there is a less chance of the issue getting resolved.
All the best
