Question about HP Photosmart 8250 InkJet Printer
I have been given an HP Photosmart 8230 Printer which, though unused for some time, was previously working OK. I have inserted all new ink cartridges but when installed a message appears on the screen - 'ERROR 0xc18a050a Ink system failure - ink system has failed and can no longer print. I have been told to do a 'cold reset' to see if that fixes the problem. How do I do that, or is there any other way I can get the printer working?
I had exactly the same problem with my HP 8230 and tried all the posted sugestions with negative results till I stumbled on this site site offering an update for a different problem but added " also clears many ink system failure messages " I downloaded and installed the update and the printer burst into life and now works perfectly, which proves mine was a software problem not a hardware one. give it a try you might get lucky.
