How do I fix "ink system failure oxc18a0206" message on my HP Photosmart C7280 all-in-one?


Hopefully, this link will take you to the proper troubleshooting page.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&dlc=en&docname=c03081973&lc=en&product=3204785&tmp_track_link=ot_search#N213

You'll click on the third plus sign on the page (+) because your message DOES include the words "ink system failure."

From there, you'll choose, by looking at the pictures, whether your printer has a removable print head.

You'll click on the appropriate answer -- yes it does, or no it doesn't,

Then, you'll identify which print cartridges your system uses, and THAT will take you to the proper troubleshooting steps for your printer's specific configuration.

The fix may be something you've already tried -- turning off the printer and unplugging it (but did you unplug it from BOTH the unit AND the wall, and then did you wait at least 15 seconds?), or the fix may be to service the printer.

Good luck! :)

Ink system failure on my HP C7280


Hello,

The 'ink system failure' is caused by air in the ink feed tubes. This problem caused by either a poorly refilled ink cartridge or by fully using all of the ink in the cartridge and then the unit sucks up air instead of ink. You will need to purge the air from the ink lines to clear the error. We have a step by step guide posted in an article on our web site at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/category/printer-repair/hp-printer-repair/ The purge will take about 5 -10 minutes to perform and sould get you back printing.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Run out ink error warning message


are using a refilled cartridge?
if yes, install an actual brand new one.

are you using an official cartridge that you've had laying around for a while?
the cartridges expire so check if your cartridge has expired and replaced accordingly.
