After changing an ink cartrige an error message read Ink System failure. Error Oxc18a0201 It tells me to turn off printer and turn back on using printer off button.


Ink system failures are a frequent issue. If turning the unit on and off doesn't help, try doing a reset. With the unit on, disconnect the USB cable from the back of the printer (and from the computer - not always required but it does help sometimes). Then remove the ink cartridges. When the screen shows Insert Cartridges, disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer. Unplugging the cord from the outlet may help. Wait 60 seconds and then plug in the power cord (first to the wall and then the unit). Turn on the printer if it doesn't turn on when the power cord is reconnected. Then reinsert the ink cartridges and close all doors on the product. Print a calibration page and scan the page if needed to complete the calilbration if prompted to print one. Reconnect the USB cord to both the computer and then the printer.

If this doesn't help, the printer needs service. If it is out of warranty, decide if the unit is worth the minimum $50 charge just to diagnose the problem and the cost to get the unit to a service center.

I hope this helps.

I have a HP Photosmart C6180 All-in-One printer that is 3 years old. It has been a great printer for our home. Today it decided it would no longer print and I get the following message: Ink System...


I had an ink system error message on my C6180 that evolved into the printer power cycling every 15 seconds of so. Apparently some defective components were used in the construction of the logic board (see photo). On my C6180 there were 3 failed capacitors (the green cylinders - the puffed top indicates failure) and a 4th from the same manufacturer (TEAPO - many unfavorable web references to this manufacturer). I purchased 3x 330uF 16V and 1x 680uF 10v rated to 105 degrees Celsius (total about 60cents). On the logic board, the capacitors I replaced are labeled C613, C614, C660 and C662. If you are not comfortable replacing the parts yourself (or don't have a soldering tool), you will have to find someone who will. The time to repair should be less than 30 min - I did it in 25 min with only a solder pen. This also fixed the ink system failures the printer was having. A similar fix may apply to other printers produced by HP around this time. acca299.jpg

Error: OXc18a0201


The ink system failure message has a chance to be fixed or it may be a permanent issue. It can be pointing toward a firmware failure in the printer and if that is the case the following steps should fix it. Press and hold the ?*? key. Press the ?#? key and release both keys. Display should say ?Enter Special Key Combo? Press and release in sequence the "1?, ?2? and ?3? buttons. Display should say ?Support? and display the FW rev (something like R0631R) Mine reads R0631M . Press and release the right arrow button until the display says ?System Configuration Menu?. Press and release the ?OK? button. Display should say ?Hardware failure status?. If not there already, Arrow Key over to ?Hardware failure status?, Press and release the ?OK? button. Display should say ?Hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear?. Press and release the ?OK? Button. Message changes to ?Hardware failure status Cleared. Press Cancel to continue?. 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. Using the Power Button, turn the unit OFF and unplug the power cable from back of the printer and wall outlet. 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. Turn the unit on. The printer may display message ?USE POWER BUTTON TO SHUTDOWN THE PRINTER? followed by ?PRESS OK TO CONTINUE?. Press OK. The Printer will start the ?ONE TIME INK INITIALIZATION PROCESS?. Allow this process to complete and do not interrupt. Once the initialization process is complete, the printer will print out a Diagnostic Page. Good Luck!
