Re: Memory Card Error

If you can do so, go through the menu options and look for the ' restore to factory defaults option and do it.

Does it have memory ports to plug in or expand memory? if so, try turning off any optionsd to use expanded memory. Also, check the website, there maybe a simple soution available there.

Check for Firmware updates as well.

Do i need a memory card for 3310 photosmart all in one

Yes you will need a memory card because the memory on the HP is full. You can delete all the memory in the Hp but need to buy a program to do so. So in the long run it is cheaper to get a memory card for it and it will work just fine for you. Have a great day.

I have a HP photosmart 3310. I'm getting the error:Oxc18a0101 message. I've tried a couple of suggested solutions ut neither has worked. Help!


1- Turn off power and unplug from power source.
2- Open right side of printer (looking at the front).
3- Disconnect,by pulling gently, both white flat ribbon cables off the main circuit board.
4- Plug in power source and turn printer on. Wait till you get a error message and push "Ok".
5- Unplug power source.
6- Reconnect the flat ribbon cables by aligning and carefully pushing into the conectors on the main circuit board.
7- Plug in power source and turn printer on (Printer preparing occurred).
8- voila, the nasty error message 0xc18a0001 "Ink System has Failed" is now gone

Try this and it works

Hp photosmart 3210 all in one memory card error no memory card is inserted but this error message persists

Try the same memory card in a pc to check if it works ... if it does then check the slot where the card gets plugged in... try a different card that also does not work means printer memory card slot is bad

Found this link that tells you how to reset the printer.

Excerpt on resetting the printer from the post linked to above:
These are from the link above:
Reset the system by holding down the OK, Cancel, Black, and Color buttons down at the same time and turn the 3310 off. Keep holding the buttons down until the printer shuts off and then turn it back on.
