Question about HP Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

A message has appeared. Ink system has failed OXC19ac3ff (error) I have searched the manual and cannot find what I heed to do to correct the problem. I have unhooked and re-hooked each of the ink cartridges. None of them show to be empty. I was trying to print on watercolor paper when the message appeared and I had just used the menu to lighten the print.

Error Oxc19ac3ff on my HP Photosmart Ct100 All-in-One series


The ink system failure message has a chance to be fixed or it may be a permanent issue. It can be pointing toward a firmware failure in the printer and if that is the case the following steps should fix it.
Press and hold the "*" key. Press the "#" key and release both keys.
Display should say "Enter Special Key Combo"
Press and release in sequence the "1", "2" and "3" buttons.
Display should say "Support" and display the FW rev (something like R0631R)
Mine reads R0631M
. Press and release the right arrow button until the display says "System Configuration Menu".
Press and release the "OK" button.
Display should say "Hardware failure status". If not there already, Arrow Key over to "Hardware failure status",
Press and release the "OK" button.
Display should say "Hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear".
Press and release the "OK" Button. Message changes to "Hardware failure status Cleared. Press Cancel to continue".
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.
Using the Power Button, turn the unit OFF and unplug the power cable from back of the printer and wall outlet.
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.
Turn the unit on. The printer may display message "USE POWER BUTTON TO SHUTDOWN THE PRINTER" followed by "PRESS OK TO CONTINUE". Press OK. 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. Good Luck!

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

Hi,

Ink System Failure is a Hardware Issue, which indicates that the Ink Delivery system failed to initialize.

I suggest you to perform the below the troubleshooting steps, if it doesnt fixes, then the printer need to be serviced or replaced.

1.Turn OFF the printer, unplug the power cable and the USB from the printer.Then Press and Hold the ON/OFF button for 1 minute and then reconnect the cables and try again.If it doesnt fixes, goto next step.

2.Remove the ink cartridges, Turn the printer OFF and Unplug all the cables from the back of the printer.Connect the Printer directly to the wall outlet.Turn it on and wait until u get a prompt to insert the ink cartridges.If it didnt work, go to step 3.

3.Remove the ink cartridges again and close the access door.Disconnect the power cable while the printer is ON.Now Press and Hold the OK and CANCEL button.While Holding the OK and CANCEL button insert the power cable and continue holding the button until u get a message "NVM Reset" or untill the printer goes OFF.Then release the buttons and press ON/OFF button.

4.If you still get the same error, then the printer needs to be serviced.

Thanks
