Question about HP PhotoSmart 1215 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I was given an HP 3200. I am getting an error message: Ink System has failed. Error 0xc05d1281. I do not want to buy new cartridges if that's not the problem. I can't find anything saying what this error is other than possible "dry ink" problem. Does that mean the cartridges are just old and unused?

I have error code 0xc05d1281 what does this mean?


This error means "Ink System Failure"
And it means that something went wrong in the ink manager internal printer software.
Try removing all the ink cartridges and then power off and on again the printer
If it asks for inserting the cartridges insert them one by one and see if the error appears, in that case the thing that provoke that error is that specific ink cartridge.
So change the specified ink cartridge.

If you didn't solve with this procedure maybe the printhead failed to do a specified operation, or anyway the printer have a specific error on the mainboard and need assistance

Let me know ;)

Hi Minnie,

This could be because of residue on the Printhead electrical contacts


Try the steps below and it should help.

Turn off the Printer.

1. Open the Carriage access door.
2. Remove the Cartridges
4. Move the carriage from left to right 6 times and it should move freely
5. Clean the contacts on the Cartridge with lint free cloth. ( Golden dots )
6. Turn on the printer and it should say " Cartridge missing or need to be reinstalled "
7. Install the Cartridges and close the Carriage door
8. the printer should go through alignment process

If this step does not fix, You may try calling HP customer support to check for better options/solutions

Ink failure error OXc05d1281


Reset the system by holding down the OK, Cancel, Black, and Color buttons at the same time and turn the 3310 off. You should keep holding the buttons down until the printer shuts off and then turns itself back on. Turn the printer off twice for the printer to recalibrate. Make sure you have new cartridges in the printer so that it can reset.

Cartridge error hp officejet j6480 generic cartridge


I own one of these printers and refill cartridges for a living. When you get this problem its best to return the cartridge for another, thats what I do for my customers.

When buying re-manufactured cartridges its best to buy from a local store and ask about there return policy before making your first purchase.

If you are buying from a reputable re-manufacturer then this will be a very rare problem. It happens with genuine HPs too.

BTW this printer uses HP 74 & 75 inks. when buying re-manufactured buy the HP 74xl which gives (according to HP) 750 printers compared to 200 from the HP74. Remanufactured HP75s are fill to HP75xl capacity.

Hp photosmart d7200 erro Oxc18a0001


Filling your cartridge with non-HP ink won't cause an error. There are basically two reasons for ink system failure, The cartridge is no good or the ink system has failed. Some of these machines can be reset. But, try replacing cartridge first.
