I never heard of that for the C7180 all-in-one. Remove the ink cartridges. Dampen a rag with water. Slide the cartridges across the rag until you see ink. If yes, than good. Grab a couple of cotton swabs & drip a couple drops of alcohol onto a tip. Wipe the copper contacts off on the ink cartridges. Do the same to the contacts within the ink carriages. Replace the ink into the carriage.
From your computer, open Printer and Faxes. Make sure your HP C7180 all-in-one printer has a check mark next to it. If not, left click the C7180 once so its high-lighted. Than click "File" in the upper left corner of the window. Left click, "Set as Default printer". Than right click once on the C7180 & slide to & left click on Properties. In the next window click "Printing Preferences", Another window will open. Left click the "Services" tab. Click the "Service this device" button.
Than click, "Clean the Print Cartridges". When the printer finishes, click "Print a Test Page", button. (If you do not see ink on the test page than your ink cartridge are too clogged & you'll have no choice but to replace them).
Using the damp rag loosens possible clogged/dried up ink. Cleaning the contacts with alcohol removes oil from touching the copper contacts with your fingers, also removes dust. Always keep a cover over your printer when not in use. My current ink cartridges are at least 1+ year old. HP & other manufactures do use tracking software to monitor your ink cartridges in this fashion. If you remove an empty cartridge & re-fill it & replace the cartridge the software knows. Each cartridge has a tiny chip attached to it.
The internal software knows when you fill a ink cartridge & can shut down your ability to print. Forcing you to buy new ink cartridges. Below is the HP link for your C7180 printer.
Good luck timmer047!

Hold “print photos” button and “red-eye removal” buttons together, release
ø Then press the “red-eye removal” button, release
ø Then press the “print photos” button, release
ø Then press “red-eye removal, release
ø Scroll to “resets menu”, click ok to select
ø Scroll to “Options” semi-full reset, ok
The printer then powers off and wait a couple of minutes. I believe the printer turns back on (or maybe the user needs to power back on after a few minutes). The refills then work.

2- Open right side of printer (looking at the front).
3- Disconnect,by pulling gently, both white flat ribbon cables off the main circuit board.
4- Plug in power source and turn printer on. Wait till you get a error message and push "Ok".
5- Unplug power source.
6- Reconnect the flat ribbon cables by aligning and carefully pushing into the conectors on the main circuit board.

Open the printer and remove the ink. Clean around the ink carriage and the under the ink with alcohol and a cotton swab. Pay special attention to areas with copper contacts. Keep in mind too that some printers will not print, even with full ink, if the exact type of ink it expected you to have installed is not right. Double check that the ink is correct against the manual or written instructions inside the printer using the number not the shape or color of the cartridge. Not every cartridge that fits the printer necessarily works.
