I tried all of the above, but nothing worked. The error message continued to appear as soon as I would turn on the printer and blocked whatever function. I had it back in the shop to service it, but they just told me not to spend any money on it and buy a new one. So did HP itself when I contacted them.
I finally ran accross this, which took of the errore message and now actually the printer is working like before.
I had the USB disconnected, the power cord disconnected as well and all the cartridges taken our, just as written in the instructions above. But then turning on the printer again, I hold down the OK and HELP button. And that did the trick for me: My C5180 would turn on and then switch itself of after a while. I then stopped to hold down the buttons and turned it on normally (still no USB connected) It did all the setup (language, country, ecc.) and then finally told me that the cartridges were missing. I reinstalled them and turned back to normal.
Hope it'll be of help for some of the many desperate HP users.

I tried everything mentioned above and the printer still does not work - the printer is about three years old but rarely used... is this just a faulty product from HP?

  2. Wait for the ' Insert Cartridges ' message to display on the control panel.
  3. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product.
  4. Wait 60 seconds.

Error message Oxc18a0301 on my hp photosmart c6150 printer


Hi,

The "Oxc18" series errors can be removed by resetting the printer. Unplug the USB cable from the printer, remove the ink cartridges. When the "Insert ink cartridges" message appears unplug the power cord from the printer. Wait 1 minute (at least), then reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer if it didn't come on by itself. Reinsert the ink, close the unit and print a calibration page if prompted to do so. Finally reconnect the USB cable to the printer. If this doesn't work, the unit needs service (or replacement if the service call will cost more than a new printer).

Thank you!!
