Hello

Turn off the printer and open the cover where the ink cartridge is located.

Remove the print cartridge from its slot. Look for a sticker on the cartridge stating it is the right HP print cartridge. If it is the wrong type of cartridge, or if the cartridge has been refilled, replace the cartridge with the right HP cartridge..

Remove the cartridges again and unplug the printer. Dampen a lint-free cloth with water and gently wipe down each one of the cartridges. Avoid touching the nozzles or the electrical strip on the cartridge.Wipe from the top of the contact to the bottom. Do this for each contact Place the cartridges back into the printer and turn the machine back on.

Turn the HP printer on. Use the printer to print a test page. If this does not correct the problem, move on

Remove the cartridges and check to make sure the electrical strip along the bottom of each cartridge is not damaged or ripped. If the cartridge is new, make sure the plastic protective tape has been completely removed. Place the cartridges back into the machine and turn it back on.

This should clear it.

This is the proper procedure andif this fails, take it in for service.

Disconnect the Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable from the back of the product, but leave the product turned on.
Open the cover of the product and remove the print cartridges.
Close the cover and wait for the Insert Ink Cartridges message to display.
Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product and wait for one minute.
Reconnect the power cord. If the product does not automatically turn on, press the Power button.
Open the cover and reinsert the print cartridges.
Close the cover. If prompted, print a calibration page.
Reconnect the USB cable, and try to print a print job from the computer.

I haven't used my HP Photosmart printer in awhile and now I'm getting a 0xc18a0206 error - I've tried taking out the ink cartridges, powering off, unplugging the usb cable etc. and I still get the error. ...


Apparently some defective components were used in the construction of the logic board (see photo). On my C6180 there were 3 failed capacitors (the green cylinders - the puffed top indicates failure) and a 4th from the same manufacturer (TEAPO - many unfavorable web references to this manufacturer). I purchased 3x 330uF 16V and 1x 680uF 10v rated to 105 degrees Celsius (total about 60cents). On the logic board, the capacitors I replaced are labeled C613, C614, C660 and C662. If you are not comfortable replacing the parts yourself (or don't have a soldering tool), you will have to find someone who will. The time to repair should be less than 30 min - I did it in 25 min with only a solder pen. This fixed the on and off problem and also fixed the ink system failures the printer was having. A similar fix may apply to other HP printers. acca299.jpg

Installed all new HP ink cartridges, receive error Oxc19ac3ff. Now will not print.


Hi

This error means ink system failed. To troubleshoot this issue you'll need to remove the ink cartridges and would need to turn off your printer, unplug it and swap its USB port with other device and then insert the cartridges and switch on the printer. This will reset the internal error code.

Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
