Hi there
0xc18a0001.
Try the following steps to remove HP Printer Error Code 0xc18a0001.
I have put 3 ways for you to try.

1. Without turning off the printer, unplug the USB cable.
2. Remove the cartridges.
3. Wait until the message "Insert cartridge" appears.
4. Unplug the power cord.
5. Wait 60 seconds.
6. Reconnect the power cable. If the printer does not turn on automatically, press "On button".
7. Reinsert the cartridges and close the lid.
8. If the printer has a page of calibration accept.
9. Reconnect the USB cable and remake an impression.
10. If the problem persists, the machine must be repaired.

Or try 2

Turn the printer and wait until you receive the error message.
* Simultaneously press the keys "9" and "#" printer.
* While holding the button down, unplug the power cord from the unit.
* Wait a few seconds.
* Still holding the button down, reconnect the cable and turn on the printer.
* Release the buttons.

Have you tried replacing the cartridges all together? That worked for me. I use HP 96 and 97 cartridges.

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.

SOURCE: Print Cartridges Refer to documentation (No function works)

I was getting this same VERY unhelpful error and the only thing that solved it for me was to buy another genuine HP black cartridge (350XL). As soon as I put it in, it cleared the error and sprang to life. As a matter of interest, before this happened, the HP Toolbox utility was also saying that the old cartridge was nearly empty. So why on earth doesn't the printer tell you the same thing??? Come on HP - get your firmware sorted. Disappointed.

There may be debris that is blocking the communication between the cartridge and the printer, especially if you are using a remanufactured cartridge. Remove the cartridge and unplug the printer from the power supply. Take a little bit of rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab and wipe off the contacts on the cartridge as well as the contacts inside of the printer. Allow both to dry for a few minutes before plugging the printer back in and re-installing the cartridge. This should clear up any miscommunication between the two.

Contact HP. Your printer needs to be reset to work with the European cartridges. If your printer is no longer in warranty, check the warranty on your cartridges and contact HP for warranty support on your cartridges.
Here's a link to contact HP. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/contacthp?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3651156 This is a US link - you may want to start with www.hp.com/cposupport and after selecting your country / language, find a contact HP link.

HP Photosmart displays a message saying "Printer Cartridge(s) missing or not detected" though I've just put a new cartridge into the machine. How do I fix this so I can print again?


Remove the cartridge.
Make sure that you removed a piece of clear plastic tape that covers the ink-jets. It's placed there to prevent the ink from drying-out while the cartridge has been sitting on the shelf at the computer store.
Re-insert the cartridge, and be sure that it "clicks" into place.

Printer won't print

Color Cartridge Failure


You know, I'm not going to read the other solution. I know 100% FOR SURE, when a cartridge fails, it is dead and there is nothing you can do about it, but there is a good side. HP ink cartridges have a year warranty. Call them and tell them it failed, they'll send you a new one!
