I have an ink system failure. ERROR CODE: Oxc18a0206

I have an ink system failure. I live in the Mojave Desert and haven't used my printer in a couple of months. I now get an ERROR: Oxc18a0206 Ink system Failure. Refer to printer documentation. I replaced the ink cartriges but to no avail. Do you think some other part of the ink system may have dried shut, inside where the ink goes. I am starting a new home business and NEED my All-In-One Printer, PLEASE HELP !!

How do I fix "ink system failure oxc18a0206" message on my HP Photosmart C7280 all-in-one?


Hopefully, this link will take you to the proper troubleshooting page.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&dlc=en&docname=c03081973&lc=en&product=3204785&tmp_track_link=ot_search#N213

You'll click on the third plus sign on the page (+) because your message DOES include the words "ink system failure."

From there, you'll choose, by looking at the pictures, whether your printer has a removable print head.

You'll click on the appropriate answer -- yes it does, or no it doesn't,

Then, you'll identify which print cartridges your system uses, and THAT will take you to the proper troubleshooting steps for your printer's specific configuration.

The fix may be something you've already tried -- turning off the printer and unplugging it (but did you unplug it from BOTH the unit AND the wall, and then did you wait at least 15 seconds?), or the fix may be to service the printer.

Good luck! :)

Hello I just replaced all the inks and now I keep getting the error oxc18a0206


Hello,

This error code indicates a 'Ink System Failure" this is caused by air in the ink feed tubes. If you allow the cartridges to fully run out or you use pooly filled refill cartridges it can allow air to be sucked up into the feed tubes. To clear the error you will need to do a purge routine. We hae a step by sep guide posted on our web site at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/category/printer-repair/hp-printer-repair/ It should take you about 10 minutes to finish and then you will be as good as new.

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

Error code Oxc18a0206 ink system failure


I had this same exact problem. Try doing:
1. Unplug the power cord from printer.
2. Hold both o.k and Cancel simultaneously.
3. Plug the power cable while holding the buttons.


I had to go through multiple tries of the solution above. I turned it back on, it shut off and I turned it back on again. I tried to print something and sure enough, it did a maintenance cycle and it works again.

This did not work the first time but after 3-4 times of doing both, TA DAH, it went through a lengthy maintenance cycle and then started working. Persistence paid off
