Hi Hermann,

with the indulgence of the others...

To my knowledge, Error 0xc18a0307 is a proprietary message from HP indicating:
1. end of life (the machine has printed X thousand of pages and has reached it maximum projected usefulness); and/or
2. a replacement/refilled ink cartridge has been used instead of a new original and the system has halted.

Perhaps your best bet would be as Ekse has posted or sorry to suggest, a replacement unit.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hello from finland

If these solutions given before me aren't any use.
Then I would recommend takeing the printer in for repairs, it sounds like a more serious error instead of a simple fault which fixes itself with a reset.

I don't speak german but have a look around here

look for the support contact details give them a call they can direct you to a local service center / tech to get it fixed.

Where are you getting the message from the computer or from the printer? pls do a self test and if self test works, trash and reinstall the driver:

selftest- just copy something using the copy option

HP Photosmart C5180 Cant upload pics from the memory card slots


Didn't try via USB. Via ethernet connect i can reach the card reader by entering '\\printer' in an explorer window. You can find the name of your C5180 on the network settings in the printer menu.

Hope this helps
