There is some sort of ink system failure here is the one possible remedy before repair/replacement will be needed. It may take a few tries to get it right.

Reset the system by holding down the OK, Cancel, Black, and Color buttons down at the same time and turn the 8250 off. Keep holding the buttons down until the printer shuts off and the turn it back on. You will have to turn the printer off twice and then it will recalibrate. Make sure you have new cartridges in the printer so that it can reset.

    This issue is related to internal hardware of the Printer. It might be due to the software of the printer or could be with the internal hardware of the printer.

    If you guys encounter such error, you can try the below workaround.

    For all error codes starting c18axxxx (where xxxx is some combination of numbers) and the specific error code c05d0082 , the HP Photosmart 8250 printer should be returned for service. Use the following steps for all other error codes:

    1) Press the On button to turn off the printer.
    2) Unplug the power cord and universal serial bus (USB) cable from the back of the printer.
    3) Wait two minutes.
    4) Plug the power cord back into the printer.
    5) Press the On button to turn the printer on.
    6) If the Ink System Failure message does not display the issue is resolved; reconnect the USB cable and resume using the printer. If the Ink System Failure message displays again, return the printer for service.

SOURCE: My 8250 printer displays error

Solution ....ink System Failure...error 0xc..........


These instructions worked very well for me. If you follow the same instructions exactly,it should work for you too.

1) If you are looking at the printer FROM THE FRONT, remove the right hand side cover. On most HP printers, there are 2-3 tabs on top that will either pop out with a screwdriver under the top cover, or can be removed with screws. Make sure you have the printer powered off and UNPLUGGED.

2) On the front, bottom, right is a separate piece of plastic that is attached to the side cover that should also be removed. Remove the plastic cover from the side at this point, and you should see a circuit board. The following link will show how to remove the printer cover: http://hpphotosmart8250.blogspot.com/

3) There are two ribbon-type connectors on the top [center] of the circuit board that are plugged in directly to the top, inserted towards the bottom of the printer. One is slightly wider than the other. Again, make sure your printer is powered off AND UNPLUGGED. Unplug both of these ribbons [this can be done without removal of the circuit board from the printer, just use care and maybe some forceps or hemostats to help with reinstalling later], and make sure they are not partially plugged in or touching the board.

4) Plug in, and turn back on the printer. A new Ink failure message should come up (the numbers will be different.) Click OK on this, then unplug the printer again.

5) Plug both of these ribbon cables back into their respective connectors. Plug in the printer and turn it on. It should start back up, and REINITIALIZE as if you just turned it on for the first time. [The printer will run for a long time pumping fresh ink through the print heads during initialization, so be sure you have cartridges that are fairly new/full.] The ink status will be correct, and no more ink system failure messages.

6) Put your printer back together...

Error0xc18a020a


so the error message that you have got on the screen that says 0xc18a020a is the error messgae when ur cartridges are not getting detected by the printer so in this cases we have to service the printer only
as u may try these steps like cleaning the copper contacts of the cartridges and then aligning them but that is also not going to work
so u must go ahead and try service ur printer ..........
