How to fix HP photosmart 3310 printer Error:Oxc18a0106


someone else's answer:
If you get an error message on your printer screen (HP Photosmart C5180) which says " 0xc18a0106 ink system failed ", you'll need to carry out a Master Reset on the printer.
Something usually causes the error to occur and this is usually a failed microchip, out of date chip or interruption when installing a new cartridge and this will have to be rectified before continuing. Most problems are usually from the last cartridge inserted, so start by replacing that cartridge. You will also need to have all cartridges with some ink in them or you'll need to replace any empty ones before continuing. Once the problem cartridge has been replaced, keep it as it may still be ok to use at a later date once the error has been reset.

To reset the printer:
1- Unplug the USB cable from the printer.
2- Press the On/Off button to turn off the printer, unplug the power lead from the printer, press and hold both the "OK" button and the "HELP" button, then plug in the power lead, wait a few seconds and release the two buttons, then press the "On" button.
Your printer will now initialise and you'll need to follow the on-screen instructions and choices on the printer. This may take several minutes to complete. Your error code should now have disappeared and you will now be able to Copy and Print.
3- Replug the USB cable from the printer.

Says:ink system failed,unable to copy,fax,print error code Oxc18a0106


It means you are out of ink and on newer printers, it can be only one color that will cause ink failure.Check your ink levels and replace the color that is empty.
