    changed out yellow ink cartridge, and now it says there's an ink system failure.  i bought all new ink, and tried the reset trick a few times, and it can print a test page, and then the device maintenance starts, and after that, the ink system failure comes back up.  any suggestions of what to do?  this printer is about 2 months out of warranty, and hp only suggested that i buy a new one.

    Same problem, Ink System Failure. Have tried the reset, cartridge replacement, etc. We need to find a good ambulance chaser to file a class-action lawsuit against HP. If it is a "disposable" printer, that fact should be clearly indicated before the sale. No printer costing in excess of $300 should be "disposable."

    After experiencing the "ink system failure" issue on my Photosmart 3110 and being told by no fewer than 3 HP technicians that my best alternative was to purchase a discounted replacement from HP (at a price higher than the going rate online) I found the "OK," "Cancel," "Black," and "Color" reset solution on this site. I restarted my printer, and now it works.

    I am absolutely outraged and am seriously considering a class action lawsuit. I am looking for people who trashed their Photosmart after getting an ink system failure message and after being told by HP that it was a hardware failure. If you fit this description and you're interested, send a message to HPinksystemfailure@gmail.com.

I have tried all solutions posted on this site and none of them work. I even tore the printer apart as suggested to see if the ink pump wheel was off. I do a lot of computer/hardware repair and this problem is a HP manufacturing problem. The problem is you can not get parts to replace bad ones. HP should be held responsible for this. It seems every person who reported the problem is about 1 to 2 months out of warrenty. HP has a very good solutions from a business stand point, just purchase a new printer. Good for them but bad for the customer. I had a lot of faith in HP, but I must rethink my purchasing of HP printers in the furture.

You can reset it by unplugging it an leaving it unplugged overnight. Then, plug it in and restart it. This may sound crazy, but could you be out of ink, or the ink cartridge may be bad. Would need more info to advise properly, such as; what were you doing when the error happened, what was the last thing you did directly before this as far as printing goes, and could a file in your program been corrupted:? Please try the simple things, then let us know, ok? Good Luk!

I have a Ink System Failure.


I had this same problem but with a different error code. 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.

After I did this my printer reconfigured like it used to do and it was like it was new again.... well new plus a headache a managed to get while reading all these little posts. I hope this helps!
