    There was no need for your comment. Besides, I only clicked on another expert because I wasn't sure whether I had clicked on a printer expert, initially.

  1. Without turning off the product, disconnect the USB cable from the rear of the product.
  2. Remove the cartridges from the product.
  3. Wait for the 'Insert Cartridges ' message to display on the control panel.
  4. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product.
  5. Wait 60 seconds.
  6. Reconnect the power cord. If the product does not automatically turn on, press the Power button (hp 0xc18a0201 - c01602202.gif ).
  7. Reinsert the cartridges, and then close any open doors on the product.
  8. If you receive a prompt to print a calibration page, do so.

    The ink system failure message has a chance to be fixed or it may be a
    permanent issue. It

    can be pointing toward a firmware failure in the printer and if that is
    the case the

    following steps should fix it.
    Press and hold the “*” key. Press the
    “#” key and release both keys.
    Display should say “Enter Special Key
    Press and release in sequence the "1”, “2” and “3” buttons.
    should say “Support” and display the FW rev (something like R0631R).
    . Press and release the right arrow button until the
    display says “System Configuration

    Press and release the “OK” button.
    Display should say
    “Hardware failure status”. If not there already, Arrow Key over to

    “Hardware failure status”,
    Press and release the “OK” button.
    should say “Hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear”.
    and release the “OK” Button. Message changes to “Hardware failure
    status Cleared.

    Press Cancel to continue”.
    Press and release the “CANCEL” button as
    many times as necessary, so that, either the

    “Welcome to Photosmart Express” screen appears, or, the “Ink System
    Failure” screen appears.

    Using the Power Button,
    turn the unit OFF and unplug the power cable from back of the

    printer and wall outlet.
    Wait 30 seconds for the power to get
    discharged and then plug the power cable into the wall

    outlet first and then into the back of the printer.
    Turn the unit on.
    The printer may display message “USE POWER BUTTON TO SHUTDOWN THE

    followed by “PRESS OK TO CONTINUE”. Press OK. The Printer will start the

    INITIALIZATION PROCESS”. Allow this process to complete and do not
    interrupt. Once the

    initialization process is complete, the printer will print out a
    Diagnostic Page.

How to Fix HP Printer Error 0xc18a0201? +44-************

Try inputting the error message into Google and see what you get. Contacting HP is hopeless since they will only help folks if unit still under warranty. Otherwise they refer you to a forum or suggest you buy another printer - an HP of course!!!!!! HP service, or lack thereof, really sucks.
