Question about HP Photosmart C5180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

"ink system has failed. unable to print. sometimes prints if turn off and on again.

It may work a time or two after turning off and then on. This started after we got cart refilled at Costco. They gave us a new cart and it came up with same message. We have struggled with it for awhile as we can usually get something done by turning off/o n. this is getting very old and frustrating.

"Ink system has failed. Unable to print. Refer to printer documentation. Error: 0xc18a0101 Turn power off, then on again."


The first problem is you have an ink jet consumer printer. Go to their support site and search that error code. That may help, but don't count on it. HP is notorious for selling defective products and have lost more than one class action suites. you can try these steps http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00489814&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=3204785&tmp_track_link=ot_search
But it could also be the error for when the ink resovors are full in the bottom of the machine. It will stop working by design then. If it were to over flow you would see where all that ink went you been buying, so they stop the machine before that happens. Best advice is take it to the nearest dumpster and deposit it inside it, and buy a laser printer. It was the best thing I ever did.

See if you can install your printer on another computer and then try printing with it again.
Run a test print first to be sure and check your print out. If this fails,
Run a print head cleaning using the printer utility setting. If it does not work,
Get another Black ink and try it out again. Cheers!

Turn the unit on. The printer may display message “USE POWER BUTTON TO SHUTDOWN THE PRINTER” followed by “PRESS OK TO CONTINUE”. Press OK. The Printer will start the “ONE TIME INK INITIALIZATION PROCESS”. Allow this process to complete and do not interrupt. Once the initialization process is complete, the printer will print out a Diagnostic Page.
