This is an Ink System Failure message. I would try this guide. 'Ink System Failure' or a '0x...' or a 'C2...' Error Message Displays on the Front Panel. To help resolve the issue.
If that doesn't work, please call our technical support at 800-474-6836. If you live outside the US/Canada Region, please click the link below to get the support number for your region. http://www.hp.com/cgi-bin/hpsupport/index.pl.

Says:ink system failed,unable to copy,fax,print error code Oxc18a0106


It means you are out of ink and on newer printers, it can be only one color that will cause ink failure.Check your ink levels and replace the color that is empty.
