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

Open Question

HP C8180 all in one printer with error msg B00A7CD2. Red eye removal, print photos,

It started going on the fritz when it was telling me my ink was expired, although the ink levels were ok. I would just bypass that msg. Then one day I turned it on & it started turning itself on & off like it was trying to reboot. Replaced the ink cartridges, it did it a few more times then printed a few times. Never quite back to original performance, then started the off & on again & has not worked since.

HP support decided it could not be repaired on line, agreed to replace it but found it was a few days out of waranty...so it is dead in the water. Probably not cost effective to repair it.

SOURCE: HP A616 photo printer. Cartridge Failed Message keeps popping up

first thing is never mess with the contacts on the ink cartridge carrier. Now that you have touched the contacts they get a film on them and don't work right after that. I had the same thing had to replace the cartridge carrier more than once. Find out how much a new one will be, then if the price more than want you think the printer is worth, you might be cheaper to buy a new printer, but don't indulge in a big expensive one because some of the cheaper ones do just as good as an expensive one and costs less to operate with the same quality. compare the price of ink also if you decide to have to get a new printer.

clean the rubber rollers of the printer and try to print. if it is still having the same problem. reset the printer by unplugging the power cord of the printer while its turn on. then plug the power cord back in. once the printer is on press and hold the power/on button and the size button. when the on button is flashing then release the buttons and try to print again

On startup, printer displayed Ink System has failed. Error )xc18a0001. Have tried the cartridge-out/power off recommendation, fault is still there on power-up.


I searched internet forums and found out how to reset the internal processor, thereby deleting the error message and allowing the printer to operate normally.
Process was:- Press on/off to turn off power. Unplug power cable. Wait 1 minute. Press and hold 'Red Eye Removal' and 'Print Photos' buttons. Insert power cable and printer automatically powers up. Keep holding the two buttons until the display screen goes blank. Press on/off to turn power off. Wait 1 minute. Press on/off to turn power on. Press 'Setup' on touchscreen and go through the procedure, including wireless setup (if used). "Bingo".

HP Photosmart C8180 - Ink System Failure - Oxc18a0101


i had exactly this error message. Rang HP. They said it was a hardware failure, they couldn't fix over phone, would cost 2x cost of new printer to fix, but they offered me 20% discount on new printer if ordered over the phone.

But with some fiddling, problem now resolved. Here's what I did:

- press Red Eye Removal and Print Photos button together
- goes to Mfg Commands -> Enter Special Keys Combo. Press OK
- uaiux Support page (some code) -> click right arrow key until you get to System Configuration Menu - click oK
- should say hardware failure status - click OK
- says hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear
- I clicked OK on this and system reset itself and problem was solved

Ink System Failure with error code: 0xc05d1281


I had the same problem and took Guru NinaE advice....1. Unplug power cord from back of printer while it is on. 2. Wait for 60 seconds after it is in sleep mode. 3. Press and hold "Print Photos" and "Red Eye Removal" at the same time and while holding the two buttons down, plug in the power cord into the back of the printer. 4. The printer display should go blank or Reset might show up on the display. When this happens, touch the ON button and the printer will reset itself.
