The Ink System Failure messages on my C6180 were early symptoms that progressed continuous power cycling. Apparently some defective components were used in the construction of the logic board (see photo). On my C6180 there were 3 failed capacitors (the green cylinders - the puffed top indicates failure) and a 4th from the same manufacturer (TEAPO - many unfavorable web references to this manufacturer). I purchased 3x 330uF 16V and 1x 680uF 10v rated to 105 degrees Celsius (total about 60cents). On the logic board, the capacitors I replaced are labeled C613, C614, C660 and C662. If you are not comfortable replacing the parts yourself (or don't have a soldering tool), you will have to find someone who will. The time to repair should be less than 30 min - I did it in 25 min with only a solder pen. This fix stopped my printer from power cycling and also fixed the ink system failures the Printer was having.I have a HP Photosmart C6180 all in one   - 74b7f9c.jpg

I have a HP Photosmart C6180 All-in-One printer that is 3 years old. It has been a great printer for our home. Today it decided it would no longer print and I get the following message: Ink System...


I had an ink system error message on my C6180 that evolved into the printer power cycling every 15 seconds of so. Apparently some defective components were used in the construction of the logic board (see photo). On my C6180 there were 3 failed capacitors (the green cylinders - the puffed top indicates failure) and a 4th from the same manufacturer (TEAPO - many unfavorable web references to this manufacturer). I purchased 3x 330uF 16V and 1x 680uF 10v rated to 105 degrees Celsius (total about 60cents). On the logic board, the capacitors I replaced are labeled C613, C614, C660 and C662. If you are not comfortable replacing the parts yourself (or don't have a soldering tool), you will have to find someone who will. The time to repair should be less than 30 min - I did it in 25 min with only a solder pen. This also fixed the ink system failures the printer was having. A similar fix may apply to other printers produced by HP around this time. acca299.jpg

HP photosmart c6180 all in one printer error message of 0xc19a0035, ink system has failed. unable to copy, receive faxes, or print. what can i do to fix it?


Hello,

The "Ink System Failure" error is caused by air in the ink fed tubes. We have a step by step guide to perform a ink purge on the printer posted on our web site at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/category/printer-repair/hp-printer-repair/ Following this procedure should get your printer back running in about 10 minutes.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.
