Ink System Failure on HP Photosmart c5180

Received a message saying the ink system has failed. Unable to print. Refer to printer documentation. (???) Error 0xc18a0201. Supposedly our warranty has run out, so HP won't help without a charge.

    Same problem. Not sure what to do.

    My printer indicated that my Yellow ink was depleted. I had replaced all the other colors, so didn't think that was unusual. I had bought the pack with all the color in it. I replaced the yellow and that's when the trouble started. It kept saying not only was the yellow out of ink, but others that had been almost full before replacing that cartridge were out also. At first, I could print in black, but then I couldn't even do that. I bought a new package of all colors and replaced them all, and it still says "replace the following empty ink cartridges to resume printing" and it shows a yellow ink cartridge. The exclamation point light under the Cancel keeps flashing. I can't print anything at all.

My photosmart printer says ink system failed unable to printer.refer to printer documentation


Ink system failure is mostly caused by print heads. i do apologize but with issues like this, the best resolution is to replace the printer. it will only cost you buying new ink cartridges but it will not resolve the issue. :(

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.

Ink system failure


Hello,
This is a very common problem if you use refilled cartridges or let your ink run really low. The "Ink System Failure" error is causes by air in the ink feed tubes. We have a step by step guide purging the air from the feed tubes posted on our web site. Go to our site at: www.ccl-la.com , click on the printer repair link and then the HP link. Follow the steps and you should be back printing in no time at all.

I hope this helps, If so please rate our solution.

Ink system failure


Look for a plastic lock by the ink cartridges that must be removed when you unboxed it.
