    First, be sure the ink cartridges are properly installed and you have 'reset' the printer. If there is any ink/dirt on the electrical contacts of the cartridge, they will interfere with proper communication with the micro-computer in the printer.

    Hi Alina,

    Before concluding this as a hardware issue Please Click here and follow the instructions and check the functionality. If same error message displays then perform the steps given below.

    Bypass the surge protector

    =====================

    If the all-in-one is plugged into a power strip, remove it from the
    power strip and plug it directly into a wall outlet and see if the
    message still appears.

    Power Cycling
    ==========
    1. Verify that the unit is switched on. Unplug the all-in-one from power and disconnect the connection port.

    2. Wait 30 seconds.

    3. Plug in the power only.

    4. Repeat steps 2-4 two more times.

    5. On the third time after plugging the unit into power, reconnect the connection port from the all-in-one to your computer.
    6. Restart your computer and check the functionality.



    ==== Partial Reset ====


    Press and hold # and 3 button on the unit while plugging in the power cord.


    Note: For models that are not fax capable, press Plus (+) instead of #.

    Regards
    laxman

I have an error message on my HP Photosmart C5180 All-in-One printer stating: Ink system has failed. Unable to print. Refer to printer documentation. Error: 0xc18a0201


Hi!
Ink System Failed is displayed becuase the printer head can not communicate with the main board of the printer and this can happen due to print head failure there is nothing you can do except repairing the printer.

Error 0xc18a0301


Error: 0xc18a0301 fix from HP tech support:

Let us perform some steps to isolate the issue and find a fix for it.
Please perform the following steps and let me know the message that will be displayed on the printer.
A. - Press and hold the “*” key.
B. - Press the “#” key and release both keys.
Display should say “Enter Special Key Combo”
C. - Press and release in sequence the “1”, “2” and “3” buttons.

Screen says "support" R0631M

Press and release the right arrow button until the display says “System Configuration Menu”.
Press and release the “OK” button.
Display should say “Hardware failure status”. If not there already, Arrow Key over to “Hardware failure status”,
Press and release the “OK” button.
Display should say “Hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear”.

Press and release the “OK” Button. Message changes to “Hardware failure status Cleared. Press Cancel to continue”.

Press and release the “CANCEL” button as many times as necessary, so that, either the “Welcome to Photosmart Express” screen appears, or, the “Ink System Failure” screen appears. PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO PRINT AT THIS STAGE.

Using the Power Button, turn the unit OFF and unplug the power cable from back of the printer and wall outlet.


Wait 30 seconds for the power to get discharged and then plug the power cable into the wall outlet first and then into the back of the printer

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.

Is the error message still being displayed on the printer?


Print a self test page to check the functionality of the printer.
Press Setup menu on the All-in-One then scroll using the arrow key and select Print Report then select Self Test Report.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
