HP photosmart C5180 all in one: Ink system has failed


Here's a link to a procedure that one individual used to fix the same problem with his printer. I can't guarantee this will work in your particular case.

HP C5180 All-In-One Printer HARD RESET:
  1. Hold down HELP + OK button and unplug printer (could experiment with regular power-off, but I opted for brute force)
  2. Hold down HELP + OK button again as you plug the printer back in. Then power it on, if it doesn’t power on automatically. Be Safe: keep holding the buttons until the printer turns itself off. (It took mine less than a minute.)
  3. Now you can release the buttons and simply power it back on. (I held my breath, but that’s not required.)
    • I got an error message about “improper shut down” since I unplugged it w/out powering down. After I clicked “OK” the printer was just fine and didn’t mind anymore. And now I can print.

Photo tray problem C5180 push output tray all the way down


I had the problem today and searched everywhere and only found the question posted about five different places but no answers. I'm obviously not the only person who has had this problem. HP's website offered no advice.

I spent some time with HP's "live chat" feature. Obviously not live, but fixed the problem.

Here's the discussion that solved my problem:

Von : Without turning the product off, remove the power cord from the back of the product.
Wait 30 seconds and then plug the power cord into the back of the product.
If the product is not already on, use the On button to turn it on.

Lance Goodthrust : did that

Lance Goodthrust : came back on and had the same error message

Von : Okay.

Von : Lets perform the steps.Von : Use the On button to turn on the product.
Remove the power cord from the product.
Press and hold the # and 6 buttons.
While holding the buttons down, connect the power cord to the product.
Continue to hold the buttons down until the color graphics display becomes blank, then release the buttons.
Use the On button to turn on the product. The reset information appears on the color graphics display.

Lance Goodthrust : okay, give me a few

Lance Goodthrust : printer is in other room

Von : Okay.

Lance Goodthrust : That seems to have solved the problem.

Lance Goodthrust : Thanks.

Von : Okay. Its alright.

How to reset the ink level on a HP C5180


You have to purchase new inks. If you have refills, it will not detect the ink levels due to the chip on the ink cartridge. When inks have been refilled, There is no way to reset the chip.

What is error 0xc05d1281


Apparently its a Ink System Failure. Here's an email thread for comment for HP C6180 with error 0xc05d1281 => http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/printer/50063

It's posted somewhere in the middle of the thread.

Here's a solution to reset your printer to factory defaults without using your ink for recalibration.

1. Unplug the printer and wait 30 seconds for power to discharge.
2. Plug in the printer.
3. Hold the CANCEL and OK buttons simultaneously, and keep them depressed while you hit the ON button. This resets the printer.
4. When the printer turns on, if you still get the error message, it's OK. Then perform the steps listed above, starting with pressing the * and # key.
5. After you perform the steps listed above, when you are at the step at the end where you are pressing the cancel button until you get to the WELCOME screen, if at some point you see a message, “Inproper shutdown, hit OK”, go ahead and hit OK and the Welcome screen should appear.
One thing that is nice about this method is that it doesn't use up all your ink doing a recalibration.
