Question about HP Photosmart C7280 Printer

1 Answer

Same error message - ink system failure

Secondary meaasage refers to an improper shutdown of the printer, but I'm not aware of any improper shutdown. Resetting the printer has not solved the problem, athough that is the recommended fix by HP. (The procedure for resetting has some very definite and non-intuitive steps.)

You may have shut it down during initialization. (see here.) Is this a new printer, or have you replaced the cartridges? See also here. and here. and to check cartridges here.(Make sure you press ok after aligning.)
When you do the reset, wait 5 minutes or longer before reconnecting. If you're using a usb cable, try disconnecting both power and data cables during the reset.
Be patient, and wait for the machine to go through its process...sometimes you have to reset more than once to clear an errror.
If you get other error messages, write back and let us know the details.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Power turned on to make copies, while printer is warming up, printer shuts down with error message about improper shutdown and comes back on and repeats the above sequence continiously.


My C6180 had the 0xc19a0035 Ink System Failure code, eventually the printer would power on and off every 15-20 seconds - continuously. 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 fixed the on and off problem and also fixed the ink system failures the printer was having. A similar fix may apply to other HP printers. acca299.jpg

I have the ink system failure error and error Oxct18a0206 I was going to try and fix it and it somewhere it said that it could be because the ink cartridges are low. How do you see what level they are at...


Hello,

Yes, The error is caused by air in the ink feed tubes which happens when the ink in the cartridges runs out or you use an improperly filled cartridge. We have a step by step repair guide posted on our web site at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/category/printer-repair/hp-printer-repair/
There is not any easy way to determine the level of ink in the cartridges but you will need to use full cartridges when you do the air purge procedure needed to clear the error.

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

Print cartridge
When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.
Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.
1. Open the top cover of the printer.
2. Remove the print cartridges.
3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth. Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.
5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.
6. Close the top cover.
7. Try printing again.
If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .
