Hello,

That code indicates the the printer has the "Ink System Failure" error. This is usually reset-able. That error is normally caused by air in the ink cartridge system. To clear the error you will need to do a purge. We have a free complete guide to perform the purge at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/category/printer-repair/hp-printer-repair/ I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

SOURCE: I have a 3210 HP

It is quite possible that the printer software has some errors and so there is communication errors betweent he PC and the printer . Sometimes a reset can help and so remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer driver software and then connect the Printer to be detected and installed as a new hardwarre. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can
also be poor ink cartridge contacts

HP Photosmart 3210 -Ink System failure - Error 0xc18a0001


In addition to having the ink system failure error 0xc18a0001, my printer screen also read improper shutdown. After trying most of the above solutions with no success, I did a search for the improper shutdown problem. This is where I found my solution!

The solution is under "Printer will not start" the solution post is by speters9971. "...you can try a sem-full reset to factory default conditions by 1. unplugging the power cord while the printer is powered on and 2. press and hold the OK and Cancel buttons while plugging in the power cord."

This is what solved my problem after hours of searching & repetitive similar solutions!!! The above solutions did not help; some of them seemed to be incomplete or irrelevant for my model. I have a HP Photosmart 3210 All-in-One.

Thank you speters9971!!!!!!!

I receive an error when I try to print on my hp photosmart all-in-one printer. Ink system has failed. 0xc18a0001


Take the printer to a recycling-centre for responsible end-of-life disposal.

It's much more expensive to try to service it, rather than to replace it with a brand-new printer. Try to buy a new HP printer that uses the same ink-cartridges as you have in your current printer.
