Hello,

Check out our web site at: www.ccl-la.com Click on the printer repair link, we have a section under HP that gives a step by step guide to fix your printer. The problem is caused by air in the ink feed tubes and the guide shows you how to purge the lines. You should be back printing in less than 10 minutes.

HP Photosmart C6280 "Ink System Failure"


Hello,
The ink failure error is caused by air in the ink feed tubes in your printer. This happens when the ink in your cartridge runs out and the printer sucks up air instead of ink. This is a very common problem with this series of printer. We have a step by step repair solution for this error posted on our web site at: www.ccl-la.com click on the printer repair pages and follow the links to your printer series.

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