    Is the cartridge you installed made by HP, or just to fit HP?

Hold the number 9 key and the key down at the same time, then pull the power cord. Then put the power cord back in while holding the 9 and # key. You will lose your settings, but the ink system failure message should go away.

Oxc18a0001 on a HP 3110 keeps sending an error mesage and wont let me copy,fax,print so it is pretty much useless


Welcome to Fixya

Try to reset the printer. Reset the system by holding down the OK, Cancel, Black, and Color buttons down at the same time and turn the printer 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.

Hp photosmart d7200 erro Oxc18a0001


Filling your cartridge with non-HP ink won't cause an error. There are basically two reasons for ink system failure, The cartridge is no good or the ink system has failed. Some of these machines can be reset. But, try replacing cartridge first.

HP Photosmart D7360 - Oxc18a0001 Ink System Failure


I had the same problem and this is how I fixed it... It is hard to get the cover off (and it's not the top cover, but the one on the right side as facing), but once you do follow the directions below.

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