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.

  • 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.

I have a the HP Photosmart c7180 and its giving me an error code of 0xc18a0506. Help!!!


The error that you are having is a hardware issue, it means your printer is really of no use anymore. Believe me, there's no use going through troubleshooting for this one. Call HP and just Upgrade your printer. HP Printer Tech Support would be more than happy in giving you discounts and an extra year of warranty for $1.00.

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
