    Yes the base will be the problem. Its where the wastepad is located. Have this replaced and you'll be good.

    Dont you worry about the head for I believe its still good. Worry about the wastepad that's full causing leakage from the bottom of the printer. You may replace the sponge (wastepad) or just clean it by drying it out so that it can absorb waste inks. This wont cost you, just a little patience and you'll be fine. This will work, always does.

Greetings the easy cleaning in the back of the cartridges have a metal connectors should be clean and not be exposed for anything ben ink. Well to solve the problem of the magenta who spends a lot is that you get a new cartridge and inserting it as many times you buy to fill and the ink is so solid that nothing comes out of ink.

0xc18a0106 error from hp 3310 printer.... ink system has failed


That error code indicates a Ink system failure error message. Ink system failed mainly caused by your cartridge spitting extra inks into the copper contacts inside the printer. All you need is to remove all cartridge, clean the copper contacts at the back of it, clean also the contacts inside the printer (cartridge slots). Insert it back in after cleaning, unplug the power cord without turning off the printer, wait for 1 min before plugging it back in. Let me know the result.

Have a hp 3310 it says ink system failure error 0xc18a0106 it wont print,scan,copy and it does have enough ink. thank 4 ur help


Turn off the machine using the power button, unplug the power cord from the back of the machine, remove the ink cartridges, wait 2 min, plug the power cord back in, press the on button, wait until the printer prompts that the ink cartridges are missing, then replace the ink cartridges. If this doesn't clear the error then you may need to re-prime ink through the system to clear the error. There are good instructions for doing this at http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/hp-photosmart-ink-system-failure-1/.
