I get an ink system failure on my HP C6180 All-in-One printer when I try to use it


Hello,
We have an article posted on our web site that gives step by step instructions to clear the "ink system failure" error. The information can be found at : http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/category/printer-repair/hp-printer-repair/ The reset takes about 5 minutes to perform and then you should be back printing again.

I hope this helps you get their printer back printing.

How do I check levels of ink on my HP Photosmart c6300 all in one. Thank You CJ


There are two ways to do this:
Method 1 Check the back of your computer to make sure that the printer is appropriately connected to the computer and is plugged in. If the printer is not plugged into the computer, find the printer jack on the back of the computer and plug it in before you move on to the next step.Click on the "Start" menu button which is located on bottom left hand corner of your screen. Click on the "Settings" bar and notice that a list of functions pop up to the left of the settings button. Click on the control panel icon.Look for the printer/fax icon in the control panel window. Double click on the printer icon.Find the icon for your printer in the opened window and right click on the icon. Now click on the "Preferences" option.Look for the menu box pop up with tabs near the top of the box. Click on the "Services" tab.Click on "Service this device." You will find the button on the Services menu that you just activated.Click on the estimated ink level tab and a graphic will appear indicating how much ink is left in the cartridge.OR Method 2 Click Start and select HP Solution Center . Select the Settings menu, then the Print Settings submenu, and finally the Printer Toolbox .
The Printer Toolbox opens. Click the Estimated Ink Level tab. A cartridge may be running out of ink even if the graphic shows ink remaining (see the note at the start of this section). Lines or streaks always appear in printouts when the cartridges begin to run out of ink. Replace print cartridges that are out of ink or low on ink. Figure 1: Estimated ink levelsc00677193.gif

"Error: 0xc18a0106"


0xc18a0106 indicates an "ink failure" with your HP Photosmart printer. The resolution is to clean the print heads. You can do this by turning off the computer and taking a Q-tip made slightly wet with isopropyl alcohol. Allow the print heads to dry before you start printing again.

After installing the new ink, it will print a paper for U. put that paper in the scanner and press scan. It's a self-calibration. If that's not the problem, please state what the problem is.

It sounds like the .dll has been corrupted. Try uninstalling the HP software and the printer. Shutdown the computer, wait half a minute or so and then start it again. Once the computer ias fully started, reinstall the printer and the software.

Let me know how it works out for you. Good luck!
