The manual will say to turn it on and off and also to unplug it and hold the ok button while doing so. If this doesn't work, then go to
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=1153494&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&submit.y=8&submit.x=5&lang=en&cc=us
and upgrade the firmware, you will first have to select your operating system. This should then solve the problem.
If this still doesn't work, then contact hp at www.hp.com/support and click on Contact Us and go to and sign into the chat line for 24/7 tech support assistance where they will most likely run you through the same process once again but if everything they tell you fails, they will then send you a different firmware.exe file that will definitely fix your problem. Let me know if the link works or if you run into any other problems

good luck

Error 0xc18a0101 persists. Have tried solution given earlier for 0xc18a0001 without success. Ink system failure not resetting; all cartridges are full.


Its tricky mechanism, once printer detects ink system failed it cannot be resetted. Do this take out cartridges from printer., open right cover., find out logic card., remove cmos battery., wait for 5 minutes., refix batyery., power on the printer., follow the screen messges ... I hope it will solve the issue..

Ink system has failed. Error:0xc18a0001 my printer is HP Photosmart 8250All-in-One System Failure) I refer to printer documentation Error:0xc18a0001 Turn power off, then on again. I dId this command but...


Try taking out the cartridges, and turning off then unplugging the printer. Leave it unplugged for about five minutes, the plug it in. Wait a few more minutes, and turn it on. Wait for it to completely start up, then put the cartridges back in (make sure you are putting them in correctly, I think this is your product here). If it still shows the error, contact HP customer service. They will probably say something similar, though.

ERROR 0xc18a0001 Ink system has failed Quite new


Try the link below. This error is related to air in the lines between the print head and the cartridges. It is quite common and HP are very aware of this.
