I had the same problem and this is how I fixed it... It is hard to get the cover off (and it's not the top cover, but the one on the right side as facing), but once you do follow the directions below.

- Turn off power and unplug from power source.
- Open right side of printer (looking at the front).
- Disconnect by pulling gently, both white flat ribbon cables off the main circuit board.
- Plug in power source and turn printer on. Wait till you get a error message and push "Ok".
- Unplug power source.
- Reconnect the flat ribbon cables by aligning and carefully pushing into the conectors on the main circuit board.
- Plug in power source and turn printer on (Printer preparing occurred).

Error 0xc18a0101 persists. Have tried solution given earlier for 0xc18a0001 without success. Ink system failure not resetting; all cartridges are full.


Its tricky mechanism, once printer detects ink system failed it cannot be resetted. Do this take out cartridges from printer., open right cover., find out logic card., remove cmos battery., wait for 5 minutes., refix batyery., power on the printer., follow the screen messges ... I hope it will solve the issue..

I has an issue with my Photosmart C8180, it shows Ink System Failure-- I tried it online but did not find it, Is there no Resolution available for it, Please help me with it,


HERE IS WHAT YOU SEEK

Issue: An Ink system failure message and error code appears on the printer display.
Solution:
Step one: Reset the printer
Press the On button to turn off the printer.
Unplug the power cord and universal serial bus (USB) cable from the back of the printer.
Wait 30 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the printer.
Press the On button to turn the printer on.
If Ink system failure does not display, the issue is resolved; reconnect the USB cable and resume using the printer.
If the previous steps have not cleared the message, continue to the next step.


Step two: Download and install firmware update
Go to the product support page to download the update.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softw...

Click Software & driver downloads.

Click on the appropriate operating system link.

Click on the Recommended update to fix long power-on cycle and ink system failures link and follow the instructions to download the file.

After downloading is complete, disconnect all other USB devices from the PC. Make sure the product is powered ON and plugged into the USB port.

With the printer directly connected to the PC, click the downloaded file FirmwareEnable_Release.EXE.

Click Open/Run.

Click OK at the Update successful window. The error should have been cleared from the printer display.

If you get a message saying a device was not detected (see Figure 1), make sure the printer is powered ON and the USB cable is connected to both the printer and PC and try step five again. Source(s):

Solution for Ink System Failure


try a simple power reset if that fails then it may be hardware issue it all depends on the error code of the ink system failure. depending the printer and the cartridges you may have to call hp to have a specific reset done on your printer and it is a one time only reset if it is successful

Ink system failure


Hello,

The error is caused by air in your ink feed tubes. We have a guide posted on our web site at: www.ccl-la.com that will show you how to do a purge of the air and get back going. Look on the printer repair page and the the HP link. This will have to be done with a new set of ink cartridges.

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

HPC8180 Did not follow intitial instructions and now have ink system failure. Hp unable to help sent me brand new ink cartridges, I tried to reset with no success. Any help?


Follow the instructions on this web page http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/hp-photosmart-ink-system-failure-1/ to prime ink through the lines and hopefully clear the error. I don't know why HP sent you new ink cartridges when it should be obvious to them that the cartridges are not the problem.
