HP Photosmart 3313 All in Printer

I have had the HP Photosmart 3313 All in one printer over a year with no problems and of course the warranty is over. The problem I am having now is the copying and scanning. When I copy, I get a vertical line running the lenght of the paper. I also get the line when I scan an image. The line appears in the window (when copy preview). The problem is driving me crazy because I have done all troubleshooting requirements and then some. I do notice that when I print a large volume of copies that the vertical line fades a lot but, does not dissapear totally. I have all online updates in software too. My last option is to reinstall my software and then update it online Any Clue? If it cannot be fixed in house, would it be cheaper to buy another one or take it to a HP dealer and request to have it fixed? Also, if the piece or part can be identified as to what the problem is, what does it generally cost to replace that piece or part?

Error code 0x610000f6.. would this be related to refiled cartridges

Hi paschal karl

The error code you are seeing may or may not have to do with the cartridges being refilled.

Here's the thing, yes, you can refill your cartridges or use re manufactured cartridges, but you may run into problems.
QualityLogic, one of the world's foremost quality assurance organizations, tested the performance of HP inkjet print cartridges vs. re manufactured (refilled) brands. The results: original HP inkjet print cartridges far surpassed ink refills in both print quality and reliability.
  • Nearly one out of every six refilled ink cartridges tested was dead on arrival or failed prematurely
  • 70% of refilled cartridges had some form of reliability problem
Count on HP original ink cartridges for consistent, worry-free printing. You may think you're saving money on re manufactured or refilled ink cartridges, but in the long run, the cost of wasted time, ink, and paper can more than make up the difference. -Source
Most people think, 'well of course that is what HP or an HP representative would say', but I have done some research and found that many others have too. Here is a perfect example of somebody who does not work for HP in any way and basically is a customer advocate (in my opinion) ;Should you refill your printer's ink cartridges? HP says no (of course) By Matthew Murray
I found the above article interesting and genuine.

To summarize, again, yes you can refill the cartridges. The printer is not programmed to reject them. Sometimes the cartridges will not work and of course because they are non HP, HP would not be able to do anything to help. HP cartridges have a 2 year manufacture warranty;Limited Warranty for HP Ink Cartridges and Customer-Replaceable Printheads for HP Inkjet Supplies, this may give you comfort knowing HP stand behind their product.

Perhaps you will find the following document helpful:

I hope this helps.

I recieve Ink System failure error message with error code 0xc18a0206 on my HP PHOTOSMART C7180 ALL-IN-ONE PRINTER.

The error that you are having is a hardware issue, it means your printer has an Ink System Failure. Believe me, there's no use going through troubleshooting for this one. Call HP and just Upgrade your printer. HP Printer Tech Support would be more than happy in giving you discounts and an extra year of warranty for $1.00.

Contact HP. Your printer needs to be reset to work with the European cartridges. If your printer is no longer in warranty, check the warranty on your cartridges and contact HP for warranty support on your cartridges.
Here's a link to contact HP. This is a US link - you may want to start with and after selecting your country / language, find a contact HP link.

It seems that the rollers won't advance the paper. The error message of course tells me that it is out of paper. I haven't used it in over one year, could that have something to do with the problem?

Things to try are listed in this support document from HP: (recommend cleaning the rollers #4)

HP Photosmart C6280 Out of Paper

Lack of use could be a factor as it pertains to dust buildup on the working parts of the feed, especially the rollers.

Scanner : could not find required user interface

I just turned off my firewall protection with CA security center (virus software) and my scanner came back to life. I've had nothing but problems with CA so it's back to Norton for me!

Go to: and I think you'll find what you need to solve the problem. often this type of error is caused by trying to clear a paper jam by pulling it out the wrong way, one or two of the gears slip and everything gets out of sync. If you can't solve your problem with the HP troubleshooter, please ask again and I can try and talk you through the resetting process. Hope this helps:)
