Question about HP Photosmart C5180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Hi, I have an HP Photosmart C5180 All-in-One printer. I have used this printer very little, and now all the sudden it says "Ink system has failed. Unable to print. Refer to printer documentation. Error: Oxc18a0206. Turn power off, then on again." I went and purchased all new ink cartilages, that was not the problem. Also when I turn on the printer it sounds like it needs help, it just doesn't sound good. I have took off the back and also looked inside to see if there was a jam but nothing? Can anyone help?

I have an error message on my HP Photosmart C5180 All-in-One printer stating: Ink system has failed. Unable to print. Refer to printer documentation. Error: 0xc18a0201


Hi!
Ink System Failed is displayed becuase the printer head can not communicate with the main board of the printer and this can happen due to print head failure there is nothing you can do except repairing the printer.

My HP Photosmart C5180 all in one is displaying this error Ink system has failed refer to printer documentation OXC 19a 0035 cannot find out what it means?


Hello,

The "Ink System Failure" is caused by air in the ink feed tubes. This problem can happen if you allow your ink to run all the way out or if you use poorly refilled ink cartridges that have air bubbles in them. To clear the error you will need to perform a purge on the printer. We have a step by step guide to this procedure posted on our web site at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/category/printer-repair/hp-printer-repair/ This should get you back printing in about 10 minutes.

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