Try updating your print drivers:
Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers. Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop. Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done

I have an error message on my HP Photosmart C5180 All-in-One printer stating: Ink system has failed. Unable to print. Refer to printer documentation. Error: 0xc18a0201


Hi!
Ink System Failed is displayed becuase the printer head can not communicate with the main board of the printer and this can happen due to print head failure there is nothing you can do except repairing the printer.

My HP Photosmart C5180 all in one is displaying this error Ink system has failed refer to printer documentation OXC 19a 0035 cannot find out what it means?


Hello,

The "Ink System Failure" is caused by air in the ink feed tubes. This problem can happen if you allow your ink to run all the way out or if you use poorly refilled ink cartridges that have air bubbles in them. To clear the error you will need to perform a purge on the printer. We have a step by step guide to this procedure posted on our web site at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/category/printer-repair/hp-printer-repair/ This should get you back printing in about 10 minutes.

Not sure how to help you. Ink failure I would think is cartridge failure. Are you original virgin cartridges or refills? I need the actual error message that the printer is giving.
