The error means
PrintHead Failure / Ink system Failure
Hardware error
Try removing the printhead (If removable) and clean the contacts on it, if it doesn't works there are no ways to fix this error

SOURCE: users manual for hp photosmart C6280

The user manual (and other guides) for the HP Photosmart C6280 are available from HP at: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01150745.pdf

The tray selection is not listed well in the index, but the informaton you are looking for is probably found in pages 38-40 which deal with using the photo tray.

SOURCE: HP photosmart C5180 all in one: Ink system has failed

Here's a link to a procedure that one individual used to fix the same problem with his printer. I can't guarantee this will work in your particular case.

HP C5180 All-In-One Printer HARD RESET:

  1. Hold down HELP + OK button and unplug printer (could experiment with regular power-off, but I opted for brute force)
  2. Hold down HELP + OK button again as you plug the printer back in. Then power it on, if it doesn’t power on automatically. Be Safe: keep holding the buttons until the printer turns itself off. (It took mine less than a minute.)
  3. Now you can release the buttons and simply power it back on. (I held my breath, but that’s not required.)
    • I got an error message about “improper shut down” since I unplugged it w/out powering down. After I clicked “OK” the printer was just fine and didn’t mind anymore. And now I can print.

Follow the steps carefully from the front panel of the All-in-One.
1. Get the unit into the “Support Menu” by following the steps given below.
A. - Press and hold the “*” key.
B. - Press the “#” key and release both keys.
Now Display should say “Enter Special Key Combo”
C. - Press and release in sequence the “1”, “2” and “3” buttons.
Now the Display should say “Support” and display the FW rev (something like R0631R)
2. Press and release the right arrow button until the display says “System Configuration Menu”.
3. Press and release the “OK” button.
4. Display should say “Hardware failure status”. If not there already, Arrow Key over to “Hardware failure status”,
5. Press and release the “OK” button.
6. Display should say “Hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear”.
7. Press and release the “OK” Button. Message changes to “Hardware failure status Cleared. Press Cancel to continue”.
8. Press and release the “CANCEL” button as many times as necessary, so that, either the “Welcome to Photosmart Express” screen appears, or, the “Ink System Failure” screen appears. PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO PRINT AT THIS STAGE.
9. Using the Power Button, turn the unit OFF and unplug the power cable from back of the printer and wall outlet.
10. Wait 30 seconds for the power to get discharged and then plug the power cable into the wall outlet first and then into the back of the printer
11.Turn the unit on. The printer may display message “USE POWER BUTTON TO SHUTDOWN THE PRINTER” followed by “PRESS OK TO CONTINUE”. Press OK. The Printer will start the “ONE TIME INK INITIALIZATION PROCESS”. Allow this process to complete and do not interrupt. Once the initialization process is complete, the printer will print out a Diagnostic Page.
12.To verify printer functionality print a SELF TEST PAGE. If SELF TEST prints, then printer is ready for use or Software Installation.

Try the link below. This error is related to air in the lines between the print head and the cartridges. It is quite common and HP are very aware of this.

Take the printer to a recycling-centre for responsible end-of-life disposal.

It's much more expensive to try to service it, rather than to replace it with a brand-new printer. Try to buy a new HP printer that uses the same ink-cartridges as you have in your current printer.

HP Photosmart C6100 All-in-one Series


I want to print a 4 x 6 inch photo on the 4 x 6 inch photo paper but not using my memory card. I no longer have what I want on the memory card but I have a copy of the photo I want to print in a computer file. How can I get it to be pinted on the 4 x 6 paper rather than printing on an 8 1/2 x 11 page and having to cut it out.
