Ink system failure, error code 0XC18A0506

I've read some other reports of the same problem on your site and as of April 18, one other guest said that the solutions listed for ink system failures didn't work for him. Can you offer any other advice besides what is on the site (and doesn't work)?

I have a problem with my printer,when i click print page i have got a problem with ink system failure and Eror 0xc18a0506, can someone help me to resolve the problem?


try the following.
Open site http://narod.ru/disk/2579842000/FirmwareEnable_Release.exe
Then scroll page down, type to textbox the numbers on picture above and press green button (CKA4ATb).
On next screen remove checkbutton (YctaHoBNtb RHAekc bap) and press on file link above it.
It's the same file as in birseyindir.net site.
I'm warning, your printer will not work, if there is some real physical problem. In my case it was unused long time without cartridges and black ink was completely dry inside of printhead. I opened it carefully and dissolved it with spirit.

Hello Javier! Welcome to FixYa!


Error 0Xc18a0506 in usually a Ink System Failure error


You need to do some basic troubleshooting steps below and hope that it would fix the problem:-

  • Disconnect the Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable from the back of the printer, but leave the printer turned on.
  • Open the cover of the printer 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 printer and the wall socket, then wait for one minute.
  • Reconnect the power cord. If the printer 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.
  • Print a Self Test to verify printer is functional.
  • Reconnect the USB cable, and try to print from the computer.

Hello,
The ink failure error is caused by air in the ink feed tubes in your printer. This happens when the ink in your cartridge runs out and the printer sucks up air instead of ink. This is a very common problem with this series of printer. We have a step by step repair solution for this error posted on our web site at: www.ccl-la.com click on the printer repair pages and follow the links to your printer series.

Ink system failure, error code 0XC18A0506


HI,

I do understand that fact that it did not work out for some other users , reason being the error which u are reffering to is related to the hardware of the printer . but it might work in some cases u may try the steps to reset the printer .

u can reset the printer to its factory deafults as well

1
Take out the cartridges from the unit .
2
Make sure the unit is connected to the wall jack directly without any surge protector.
3
Unplug the power cord from the back of the unit ( without turning off the unit ) .
4
Now press the # and 6 key together , while holding these keys down plug in the power cord back into the unit .
5
Do not release the keys after a few seconds u will find te hp logo or bars moving across the screen .wait while the unit turns off.
6
after one minute turn on the prnter . it will go into alligment phase > let it finish .
7
after its done > try to make a copy .

Thanks
