Rec'd system failure msg - ink system has failed - unable to copy, or print. refer to printer documentation error Oxc18a0501 Help!


An HP technician can usually walk you through this over the phone.
If the unit is out of warranty, there will be a charge for the service.
If the ink system reset fails, they may not charge you.
In my past experience as an HP authorized technician though, this is usually the kiss of death, and the printer needs to be replaced (either by HP under warranty, or you need to buy a new one)

Hp c6180 error oxc18a0501


Unless the printer also said ink system failure, this is a sign of an internal failure. Try resetting the printer. With the printer on, unplug the USB cable from the printer, remove the ink cartridges. Once the Insert cartridges message appears, unplug the printer. Wait 60 seconds. Reconnect the power cord and press the on button if you need to. Reinsert the ink cartridges and close all the open doors on the printer. Print a calibration page if the printer prompts you to do one. Finally reconnect the USB cable.

If the error persists after these steps, the printer needs service. You will need to decide if it is worth the cost if the printer is out of warranty.

I hope this helps.

HP PHOTOSMART C6100 All in One series ran out of yellow and for the first time since we bought it it did not give us the option to print in black only. Message says Ink System Failure...cannot print fax...


I called HP for troubleshooting assistance. My printer HP All- in-One is only 2 years old. They were very nice to run through a series of steps with me...only to tell me that "It is broken" and I will need to buy a new one. So that's my solution for today....Which leads me to the next question...Do I get another HP or something else??

I have the c6100 all in one series. I can't copy or fax anything . I change the black ink cartride. I have an error message . Ink system has failed 0xc18a0306


"c6100" what brand? HP I guess. Well I suppose you set the printer to see the black cartridge as a new one! What light blinks? You might have to change the collor cartridge too! try that! For how long do you have the printer? It may have a full residual ink memory issue!
