I had the same problem and this is how I fixed it... It is hard to get the cover off (and it's not the top cover, but the one on the right side as facing), but once you do follow the directions below.

- Turn off power and unplug from power source.
- Open right side of printer (looking at the front).
- Disconnect by pulling gently, both white flat ribbon cables off the main circuit board.
- Plug in power source and turn printer on. Wait till you get a error message and push "Ok".
- Unplug power source.
- Reconnect the flat ribbon cables by aligning and carefully pushing into the conectors on the main circuit board.
- Plug in power source and turn printer on (Printer preparing occurred).

I apologize for the confusion, I unintentionally reviewed the touch screen version of your printer. Below is the Hardware fault clearing method for your machine. Please provide me with your results.
#1 Press and Hold the "PrintPhotos" & "Red Eye Removal" buttons. Release both buttons. Display should say "Enter Special Key Combo"

#2 Press and release in sequence "Red Eye Removal", "Print Photos", "RedEyeRemoval"

#3 Press and release the right arrow button until the display says "System Configuration Menu".

Press and release the "OK" button.

# 4. Display should say "Hardware failure status". If not there already, Arrow Key over to "Hardware failure status

5. Press and release the "OK" button


6. Display should say "Hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear"

7. Press and release the "OK" Button. Message changes to "Hardware failure status Cleared. Press Cancel to continue".

8. Press and release the "CANCEL" button as many times as necessary, so that, either the "Welcome to Photosmart Express" screen appears, or, the "Ink System Failure" screen appears. PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO PRINT AT THIS STAGE

9. Using the Power Button, turn the unit OFF and unplug the power cable from back of the printer and wall outlet.

10. Wait 30 seconds for the power to get discharged and then plug the power cable into the wall outlet first and then into the back of the printer

11. Turn the unit on. The printer may display message "USE POWER BUTTON TO SHUTDOWN THE PRINTER" followed by "PRESS OK TO CONTINUE". Press OK.

12. If the printer has already initialized, then go to the next step. If not, the printer will start the "ONE TIME INK INITIALIZATION PROCESS". Allow this process to complete and do not interrupt. Once the initialization process is complete, the printer will print out a Diagnostic Page.

13. To verify printer functionality print a SELFTESTPAGE.

Hp photosmart d7200 erro Oxc18a0001


Filling your cartridge with non-HP ink won't cause an error. There are basically two reasons for ink system failure, The cartridge is no good or the ink system has failed. Some of these machines can be reset. But, try replacing cartridge first.
