Question about HP Photosmart 3310 Printer

1 Answer

Ink system has failed message

My HP Photosmart C5180 all-in-one printer won't print. Instead I get a error on the printer display that says Ink system has failed. Unable to print.

I have chatted with HP and they said it seems to be my computers problem and nothing with the printer. Then he offered me a deal to buy a new printer of the same model!

I have followed all of the troubleshooting information regarding this problem on the HP solutions site, but I keep getting this error. Does anyone know about this error?

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.
