SOURCE: ink system failure
Just got off the phone to HP and the issue is resolved *phew*. This was what I was told to do for my C5180. First they told me to do a power drain. This is done by pulling out the power cable and then holding the on/off button for a minute, then putting the power cable back in (this didn't work).
Then we did a master reset. Unplug the printer, then pressing the help and ok buttons simultaneously plug it back in. This sorted it. :)
Have to say it looked like this whole process used up shed loads of ink, so by the time I had finished I needed to replace 3 cartridges!
HP were pretty good and were very willing to send out a new printer if the reset didn't work (as the printer is still in warrenty). Hope you get yours sorted too. Rebecca

>try to do hardware reset
>while printer is on unplug power cord at the back of it, press and hold # and 6 buttons on your printer, while holding the buttons plug back power cord, printer should initialise you can release the buttons after 10 secs or until you see semi full reset on the display, if the printer will not automatically turn back on press the power button, if it ask for you to set the region and laguage again then you have done the reset successfully
>this hardware reset should clear the error otherwise better contact hp
