I want to print a 4 x 6 inch photo on the 4 x 6 inch photo paper but not using my memory card. I no longer have what I want on the memory card but I have a copy of the photo I want to print in a computer file. How can I get it to be pinted on the 4 x 6 paper rather than printing on an 8 1/2 x 11 page and having to cut it out.

The printer does an Error code 0xc18a0001 Ink failure and the computer doesn't seem to take the printer on I plug it in and out doesn't matter it's just like if I wouldn't plug in any new...


Hello,

TO clear the error and return the printer to working order you will need to do an ink purge and reset. The problem is caused by air in the ink cartridges. This can happen if you use refilled cartridges or if you let the ink run to low and try to print something. Here is a link to an article that explains what has happened and how to solve the problem.

Try taking out the cartridges, and turning off then unplugging the printer. Leave it unplugged for about five minutes, the plug it in. Wait a few more minutes, and turn it on. Wait for it to completely start up, then put the cartridges back in (make sure you are putting them in correctly, I think this is your product here). If it still shows the error, contact HP customer service. They will probably say something similar, though.

ERROR 0xc18a0001 Ink system has failed Quite new


Try the link below. This error is related to air in the lines between the print head and the cartridges. It is quite common and HP are very aware of this.

What is printhead failure on my HP Photosmart C6100 series printer? and how can I fix it permanently?


The print-head is the "heart" of an ink-jet printer -- it pulls the ink from the ink-cartridges, and sprays the ink onto the paper.

If the "manufacturer-warranty" has expired, it is time to buy a new unit, and to responsibly recycle the old unit.

Error message Oxc18a0301 on my hp photosmart c6150 printer


Hi,

The "Oxc18" series errors can be removed by resetting the printer. Unplug the USB cable from the printer, remove the ink cartridges. When the "Insert ink cartridges" message appears unplug the power cord from the printer. Wait 1 minute (at least), then reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer if it didn't come on by itself. Reinsert the ink, close the unit and print a calibration page if prompted to do so. Finally reconnect the USB cable to the printer. If this doesn't work, the unit needs service (or replacement if the service call will cost more than a new printer).

Thank you!!

Ink system failure error telling me to refer to printer documentation error 0xc18a006


Hello,

The "Ink system failure" error is caused by air in the ink feed tubes, this happens if you use poorly filled cartridges or allow you cartridge to run all the way out. We have a step by step guide to purge the ink feed tubes posted on our web site at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/category/printer-repair/hp-printer-repair/ This should get your printer back going in about 10 minutes.

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

HP PHOTOSMART C6100 All in One series ran out of yellow and for the first time since we bought it it did not give us the option to print in black only. Message says Ink System Failure...cannot print fax...


I called HP for troubleshooting assistance. My printer HP All- in-One is only 2 years old. They were very nice to run through a series of steps with me...only to tell me that "It is broken" and I will need to buy a new one. So that's my solution for today....Which leads me to the next question...Do I get another HP or something else??
