Ink system fail Oxc18a001


Hello,

The "ink system failure" error is caused by air in the ink feed tubes. This happens if you either totally run out of ink and the pump sucks up air from the empty cartridge or you use poorly filled ink cartridges that have sir bubbles. To clear the error you will have to do a feed tube purge. We have a step by step guide to do this posted on our web site at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/category/printer-repair/hp-printer-repair/ The purge will take about 10 minutes to do and should get you back up and printing.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Ink system failure have tried everything such as resetting and nothing works


Have you installed a new cartridge or tried the old one that worked to see if the new cartridge you have was bad out of the box?

HP 8250 Photosmart printer that displays "system ink failure"


Try changing the ink cartridges.

If you installed the "HP Support Toolkit" software from the CD-ROM that came with the printer, use this Toolkit to "run a cleaning cycle".
It can print a "test" page, to show you which colours _do_ work, and which do _not_ work.

If all else fails, then find a qualified printer technician.

Ink system failure. How do I reset a hp 8250 printer?


Turn off the machine using the power button, unplug the power cord from the back of the machine, remove the ink cartridges, wait 2 min, plug the power cord back in, press the power button to turn on the printer, wait for the printer to prompt that the ink cartridges are missing, then replace the ink cartridges. If this doesn't clear the error you may need to re-prime the ink cartridges. There is a good explanation of how to do this at http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/hp-photosmart-ink-system-failure-1/.
