Okay basically you either need a firmware update or you have air in your lines. If your unit is in warranty call HP for an exchange. If not the your kind of in a pickle. It will cost you to get the firmware update and there really isnt much to do for ISF. I do not have a purge command for that model. I am sorry.

How do I fix "ink system failure oxc18a0206" message on my HP Photosmart C7280 all-in-one?


Hopefully, this link will take you to the proper troubleshooting page.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&dlc=en&docname=c03081973&lc=en&product=3204785&tmp_track_link=ot_search#N213

You'll click on the third plus sign on the page (+) because your message DOES include the words "ink system failure."

From there, you'll choose, by looking at the pictures, whether your printer has a removable print head.

You'll click on the appropriate answer -- yes it does, or no it doesn't,

Then, you'll identify which print cartridges your system uses, and THAT will take you to the proper troubleshooting steps for your printer's specific configuration.

The fix may be something you've already tried -- turning off the printer and unplugging it (but did you unplug it from BOTH the unit AND the wall, and then did you wait at least 15 seconds?), or the fix may be to service the printer.

Good luck! :)

I am getting a error message saying the printer does not have enough ink to ensure printer health. The empty ink cartridge must be replaced to resume printing. I replaced the cartridges and it does not...


These printers have been known to have ink system failure errors. This message can also be caused by using compatible or re-manufactured cartridges. We believe the HP Live update software is also responsible for "dobbing" on you if you use any other brand.
A Fix for the ink system failure can be found below Not sure if it will help with your particular error but it wont hurt to try.

There is an ink system faliure and model is hp photosmart c7288 all in one and i do not have cartridges , i have bottles of different ink and the error code is 0xc18a0105


The error that you are having is a hardware issue, it means your printer is really of no use anymore. Believe me, there's no use going through troubleshooting for this one. Call HP and just Upgrade your printer. HP Printer Tech Support would be more than happy in giving you discounts and an extra year of warranty for $1.00.
Regarding the ink cartridges that you have note yet used. HP has an Ink Exchange Policy wherein you just have to send a request of exchange in one specific email address, and hp will exchange your cartridges for the new printer that you have.

0xc18a0106 error from hp 3310 printer.... ink system has failed


That error code indicates a Ink system failure error message. Ink system failed mainly caused by your cartridge spitting extra inks into the copper contacts inside the printer. All you need is to remove all cartridge, clean the copper contacts at the back of it, clean also the contacts inside the printer (cartridge slots). Insert it back in after cleaning, unplug the power cord without turning off the printer, wait for 1 min before plugging it back in. Let me know the result.

Ink system msg comes up in all print scenarios


I would un-install then re-install printer software ...then make sure the hp is set at default ....it probably wouldn't hurt to unplug the printer and let it sit fir a few minutes then once the software is loaded add your power first then with an active computer re-connect your usb and let the system find the printer . hope this helps !

Ink system failure


HP Photosmart C7180 will not accept new '02' yellow ink cartridge and repeatedly states 'printer does not have enough ink to ensure printer health. The empty ink cartridge must be replaced to resume.' This is the 2nd HP '02'yellow I've bought and it continues to say the same.
