Check your update settings in the printer software. Turn off any automatic updates from Epson. To get updates, put some old Epson cartridges, good or bad, in while you update. Epson will log on to your printer and kill your non-Epson cartridges during auto updates.

Error code: 0xc18a0001


This error code indicates that you have an 'Ink system failure'. The problem is caused by air the ink feed tubes. If you either use all of the ink down to 0% or you use poorly refilled ink cartridges it can cause the printer to **** air into the feed tubes instead of ink. We have a step by step guide to purge the feed tubes of air on our site at: There are 2 different versions of the procedure find the one for your type printer and follow the guide and within about 10 minutes you will be printing again.

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

Introductory cartridges come with the printer and carry special ink formulations intended for printer initialization. During initialization, inks in the introductory cartridges mix with inks in the printer to create a normal ink formulation.

There is however a work around. Let me know if you need it
