You could try a power reset of the printer.
Press ON button to turn off printer
Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer
Remove all of the ink cartridges
Wait 3 minutes
Plug the power cord back into the printer
Press the ON button to turn on the printer

If this does not work, you could try a hardware reset.

Release both buttons
2) Press OK

SOURCE: Ink system has failed.

The manual will say to turn it on and off and also to unplug it and hold the ok button while doing so. If this doesn't work, then go to
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=1153494&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&submit.y=8&submit.x=5&lang=en&cc=us
and upgrade the firmware, you will first have to select your operating system. This should then solve the problem.
If this still doesn't work, then contact hp at www.hp.com/support and click on Contact Us and go to and sign into the chat line for 24/7 tech support assistance where they will most likely run you through the same process once again but if everything they tell you fails, they will then send you a different firmware.exe file that will definitely fix your problem. Let me know if the link works or if you run into any other problems

good luck

Ink system has failed. Error:0xc18a0001 my printer is HP Photosmart 8250All-in-One System Failure) I refer to printer documentation Error:0xc18a0001 Turn power off, then on again. I dId this command but...


Try taking out the cartridges, and turning off then unplugging the printer. Leave it unplugged for about five minutes, the plug it in. Wait a few more minutes, and turn it on. Wait for it to completely start up, then put the cartridges back in (make sure you are putting them in correctly, I think this is your product here). If it still shows the error, contact HP customer service. They will probably say something similar, though.

ERROR 0xc18a0001 Ink system has failed Quite new


Try the link below. This error is related to air in the lines between the print head and the cartridges. It is quite common and HP are very aware of this.
