Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

4 Answers

Error message I have this unit for one year. Started to really use the unit in late November. Changed black, cyan magneta and yellow cartridges in the last four weeks. I got an error message ink system failure error message 0xc18A0107. I spoke to HP tech support online and they said cannot be repaired. They mentioned a hardware failure and advise to purchase another "upgrade" unit and sending them my unit. Can you tell me what part is bad?

    not working. As soon as I press the on button the error is on.

  • fixmama Apr 04, 2008

    Yes I will like to obtain more assistance. On power up the printergo through a setup routine when I first got the printer. Now I observed it is giving more clicks than before and the error message on immediately. I spoke with HP but they are not helping they said it is a hardware issue but would not say specifics. The error code is indicated.

    it is practically new

  • fixmama Apr 10, 2008

    it does not reset

  • fixmama Apr 11, 2008

    I could have done so without paying for fixya comments. I thought that you may have gone through this type of issue and would be able to help. Are these hardware problems inherited with HP printers that you know of?

  • fixmama Apr 16, 2008

    on the c6180 there are seaparate black and color buttons for the copy and scan sections. You are saying to press all these at the same time. I have tried all these combinations, not working. Is it in the pump section that is bad? I have the 4 sides of the printer case apart. I can see the 6 tubes going from pump to printer head. I beleive this is really a bad design for the ink to travel in these tubes. Does the pump have to be primed like a water pump?

An 0xc18xxxxx or 0xc19xxxxx ink system error code displays on the front panel. The all-in-one cannot copy, receive faxes, or print. Solution

  1. Press the On button to turn the all-in-one off.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the back of the all-in-one.
  3. Remove all the ink cartridges.
  4. Wait two minutes.
  5. Plug the power cord into the back of the all-in-one.
  6. Press the On button to turn the all-in-one on.
  7. Install the ink cartridges when prompted.
If the error code does not display, the issue is resolved. If the 0xc18xxxxx or 0xc19xxxxx ink system error code displays on the front panel, service the all-in-one. Hope it could help....!

Amigo, só para ajudar a divulgar aos usuários de Bulk. Se o código de erro 0xc18xxxxx ou 0xc19xxxxx do sistema de tinta da impressora HP Photosmart C6180 for exibido no painel dianteiro, faça o resete da seguinte forma:

1- aperte a tecla com sinal # (jogo da velha) e o número 9. Segure as 2 (# + 9) apertadas ao mesmo tempo.

2- desplugue a impressora da energia,

3- ligue (com as teclas ainda apertadas) e espere uns 15 segundos até a impressora desligar.

4- Aí é tudo normal, liga novamente ela pede as configurações iniciais, configuração da linguagem, faz a limpeza e OK!

A tinta preta original da impressora C6180 é pigmentada e as demais corantes. Contudo para o bulk-ink é melhor utilizar só tintas corantes que possuem melhor fluidez, evitando entupimentos e problemas. RESOLVI O PROBLEMA DO MEU BULK-INK SUBSTITUINDO A TINTA PIGMENTADA - QUE VEIO COM O BULK - POR TINTA TIPO CORANTE.

    You cant actually troubleshoot the issue, its a hardware issue already and chances are it will cost you as much as buying a new one if you are going to have it repaired

    OK, what you need to do is manually reset your printer:

    Hold down the OK, Cancel, Black, and Color
    buttons all at the same time and turn the printer off. Keep holding the
    buttons down until the printer shuts off completely, then turn the printer back on. You
    will have to turn the printer off twice and then it will recalibrate.
    Make sure you have ink cartridges in the printer so that it can reset.

    Good Luck!

  • Matt Jurach
    Matt Jurach Apr 04, 2008

    Sorry, it looks like the C6180 might not have a "color" or "black" button like other HP all-in-one printers. In that case, just hold the "OK" and "Cancel" buttons in the above instructions.

  • Matt Jurach
    Matt Jurach Apr 04, 2008

    Turn the printer on and wait for it to settle down and display the error. Hold down the "OK" , "Cancel"
    , "Black," and "Color" buttons all at the same time and turn the printer off. Keep holding the
    buttons down until the printer shuts off completely, then turn the printer back on. You
    will have to turn the printer off twice and then it will recalibrate.
    Make sure you have ink cartridges in the printer so that it can reset.

    Yes, this problem is inherent to HP All-In-One printers across several product lines.

    Here's some other users with the same problem.

    Here's a lot more.

    The reset key sequence I posted here is the only solution that seems to solve this error with any sort of regularity. HP does not acknowledge this problem as being user-serviceable, as you can see by all of these other frustrated users who were told the same thing as you: "Send your unit in for repair."

Hi, do note that even if you are printing in black, the printer requires that you have installed functioning cyan (blueish), magenta (reddish) and yellow cartridges as well.

10.92 errror message. I have install a new black cartridge but the message keep telling me to close the door. HELP PLEASE. THAQNKSw


10.92.XX says that the print cartridge XX(00=black, 01=cyan, 02=magenta, 03=yellow) is not engaged correctly.

Since the error occurred after replacing the black cartridge, it's a good bet that the black is bad.
Put the old black in the printer and see if the error goes away.
Open and close the front door slowly and look at the cartridges. You should see the cartridge flaps all open and close as you open and close the front door.
If the flaps don't all open and close, the cartridge lock mechanism could be broken.
You can run the DISABLE CARTRIDGE CHECK diagnostic. This will allow you to remove all the cartridges and install all or one in any slot you want. In your case remove them all and put the cyan in the black slot and see if the error goes away. If yes, put the black in any empty slot. If the error returns, the black is definitely bad.

Lexmark c532n prints smudges on page


The problem could be caused by the photoconductor units. Try to swap the affected photoconductor units (like swap the magenta with black and cyan with yellow). If problem still occurs, then the photoconductors need replacement. I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support for assistance. Thanks

I never use any colour other than black yet I have to purcgase cyan, magneta, and yellow when my black cartridge is empty. Is it possible to overcome this problem, ? My printer isa DCP135C


You don't have to replace the coloured cartridges if you only use black. But if you print something that is not pure black then it will use the other colors. For expample, if you print on a gray scale, since this is a color printer it will use the colored cartridges to get the gray color. The colored printer will only use the black ink for pure black colours. If you just use black to print, why not use an inkjet printer that just prints black or uses black cartridge. It is available in the market.

Konica minolta error


I had the same problem and found that one of the toner cartridges must have not been seated properly. I removed the black toner cartridge and re-fitted it. The printer now works fine again with no errors. 17H is a code relating to a fault in the rotation ......... possibly one or more toner cartridges need checking. Use the menu on the printer to turn it to the appropriate position (i.e. engine menu then select replacement of whichever toner you are checking).
Hope this fixes your as well.
