HP Photosmart C5180 printer error message Oxc18a0206


Use your machines own programme to clean the ink heads

1 Answer

When I turn on printer, the on light keeps blinking, then I hear this plinking sound. Once in a while the cancel! light comes on.


If the printer is about 1 year old or older, you may have bad printheads. Make sure you use OEM cartridge for this.
If it is a newer printer, you may have a bit of paper stuck somewhere in the feed path.

This is the resume button. If it is blinking and the power light is steady and if just installed a print cartridge, make sure the cartridge is securely snapped into the printer with the arrow aligned with the dots on the top of the printer cartridge cradle.
Close the top cover of the printer if it is open.
Check the lower (IN) tray to make sure it contains paper and that the paper is correctly loaded in the tray.
Press resume to clear the error condition. Then check your computer screen for any reported error message and corrective action instructions.
If the resume and power lights are blinking - press the power button to turn off the printer. At the computer, cancel any documents awaiting printing. Then press power button again to turn on computer. Good luck from Lady Isobel.

HP Photosmart C5180 Ink System has Failed Error:0xc18a0306


Reset the system by holding down the OK, Cancel, Black, and Color buttons down at the same time and turn the 3310 off. Keep holding the buttons down until the printer shuts off and the turn it back on. You will have to turn the printer off twice and then it will recalibrate. Make sure you have new cartiges in the printer so that it can reset.

It means that the printer is in READY State.

The printer control panel is comprised of six lights and two buttons. The lights produce patterns that
identify the printer status.
1 Jam light: Indicates that there is a jam in the printer.
2 Toner light: When the print cartridge is low, the Toner light illuminates. When the print cartridge is out of the printer,
the Toner light blinks.
3 Paper out light: Indicates that the printer is out of paper.
4 Attention light: Indicates that the print-cartridge door is open or other errors exist.
5 Ready light: Indicates that the printer is ready to print.
6 Go button and light: Initiates action or indicates status.
7 Cancel button: To cancel the print job that is currently printing, press the Cancel button.

Cartridges have small electrical contacts. It sounds as though either the cartridge is faulty or it may have got stuck in the wrong place.

Firstly turn off the printer.

If you are using it with a computer via a usb connector, disconnect the lead from the printer.

Disconnect the power lead from the printer.

Lift the lid to gain access to the cartridges.

Ensure they move freely along the track from right to left.

Remove the cartridges and re-insert them one at a time.

Close the lid, reconnect the power lead and USB connector.

Switch the printer back on.

If you are using it with a PC, your computer should automatically detect it after a few seconds. If it doesn't then restart your PC.

If this does not clear the problem, try new cartridges. If it still does not work, the printer may have a control fault.

Hope it works, good luck!
