Question about HP - HP Photosmart 8250 printer
SOURCE: ink system failure
Just got off the phone to HP and the issue is resolved *phew*. This was what I was told to do for my C5180. First they told me to do a power drain. This is done by pulling out the power cable and then holding the on/off button for a minute, then putting the power cable back in (this didn't work).
Then we did a master reset. Unplug the printer, then pressing the help and ok buttons simultaneously plug it back in. This sorted it. :)
Have to say it looked like this whole process used up shed loads of ink, so by the time I had finished I needed to replace 3 cartridges!
HP were pretty good and were very willing to send out a new printer if the reset didn't work (as the printer is still in warrenty). Hope you get yours sorted too. Rebecca

Don't use refill cartridges, because it will damage your printer someday. and will cost your parts as brand new. so better use the original ink.
TRY THIS STEPS...

3) When releasing the Power button and the Stop / Reset button (regardless of order), the printer will move into a

4) When the LED lights in green, press the Stop/Reset button the specified number of time(s) according to the

I had the error message U071 and U130. I pressed the stop/reset, OK, the black and color start buttons all at once and the error message just disappeared.

Perhaps the chips in the cartridges have failed? In which case you may need to replace them with brand new cartridges. If that doesn't work you might need to send it for repair as the cartridges might have damaged your machine.
