Try the above hp support center document. I know that not all errors that pop up on the printer display will be in the manual, but usually the first few characters of an error code point towards the failure.

Oh my gosh this really worked for me. It is back to printing again and the best thing is that my magenta was not working(tried all kinds of fixes, even the #*,123 thing, nothing worked) it is now working after not working for over 6 months. I was just trying to use up ink I had and was going to buy a new printer, now I don't have to. Thank you so very much for this post.

I have error code Oxc18a0001- ink system failure. Can you help


Psil posted a possible solution 29 days ago; I repeat for your information:
just had this exact issue with my C7280. I called HP Tech support, got a body in Bangalore or someplace, and was pleasantly surprised that they were prompt and knowledgeable, and solved the issue very quickly after transferring my call one time to a hardware support expert.

Here are the details. Got the Ink System Failure message. The error code shows was '0xc18a0005'. The tech had me press and hold the '*' key on the key pad, then press the '#' key and release them both. Then he had me enter '123' to enter maintenance mode. He then had me press the right arrow (beside the OK button) until System Config. menu appeared on panel. Then pressed OK two times to clear the error condition, then cancel two or three times to return to the top menu. Then powered off and back on, printed a test page just fine, copied a document fine.

Same error code on HP 3210 HELP!


Hi,

Its an internal error which means that there is some issue with the ink delivery system of the unit. Since the ink delivery system cannot be replaced the whole unit needs to be replaced.

No reset or any other steps will resolve the issue.
