I have worked on many HP inkjet printers. This is not a good sign. The problem could be a defective logic board, bad cable or connection between the logic board and the print head housing, or the print head housing itself. It is unlikely that the problem can be resolved if you already tried the steps on HP's website. If you can find another C5180 with a good logic board, you can try changing the logic board out. It is a pain in the behind to get to the logic board, and there are many wires connected to it. If the printer is not under warranty, it maybe time to retire that printer.

I am sorry for not able to give you a magic fix, but there is no magic fix with this one.

HP Photosmart C5180 - Ink System Failure. Error Oxc18a0306


Try updating your drivers first:
Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers. Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop. Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done
