    My Printer has an Ink System Failure. Do These steps and it should get you back running. This was the conversation from the tech:





    Christina: Let us perform some steps to isolate the issue and find a fix for it.
    Christina: Please perform the following steps and let me know the message that will be displayed on the printer.
    Christina: A. - Press and hold the “*” key.
    B. - Press the “#” key and release both keys.
    Display should say “Enter Special Key Combo”
    C. - Press and release in sequence the “1”, “2” and “3” buttons.
    CustomerName: ok
    CustomerName: screen says "support" R0631M
    Christina: Fine.
    Christina: 2. Press and release the right arrow button until the display says “System Configuration Menu”.
    Christina: 3. Press and release the “OK” button.
    Christina: 4. Display should say “Hardware failure status”. If not there already, Arrow Key over to “Hardware failure status”,
    Christina: 5. Press and release the “OK” button.
    Christina: 6. Display should say “Hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear”.
    CustomerName: yup
    Christina: 7. Press and release the “OK” Button. Message changes to “Hardware failure status Cleared. Press Cancel to continue”.
    CustomerName: ok
    Christina: 8. Press and release the “CANCEL” button as many times as necessary, so that, either the “Welcome to Photosmart Express” screen appears, or, the “Ink System Failure” screen appears. PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO PRINT AT THIS STAGE.
    CustomerName: ok
    Christina: 9. Using the Power Button, turn the unit OFF and unplug the power cable from back of the printer and wall outlet.
    CustomerName: done
    Christina: Fine.
    Christina: 10. Wait 30 seconds for the power to get discharged and then plug the power cable into the wall outlet first and then into the back of the printer
    CustomerName: done
    Christina: 11. Turn the unit on. The printer may display message “USE POWER BUTTON TO SHUTDOWN THE PRINTER” followed by “PRESS OK TO CONTINUE”. Press OK. The Printer will start the “ONE TIME INK INITIALIZATION PROCESS”. Allow this process to complete and do not interrupt. Once the initialization process is complete, the printer will print out a Diagnostic Page.
    CustomerName: made a buncha noise, and it didn't print a diagnostic page
    Christina: Good.
    Christina: Is the error message still being displayed on the printer?
    CustomerName: nope
    Christina: Good.
    CustomerName: should I try to print something?
    Christina: Let us print a self test page to check the functionality of the printer.
    Christina: Press Setup menu on the All-in-One then scroll using the arrow key and select Print Report then select Self Test Report.

HP Photosmart D7360 ink system has failed. How do I fix this?

"Ink system has failed. Unable to print. Refer to printer documentation. Error: 0xc18a0101 Turn power off, then on again."


The first problem is you have an ink jet consumer printer. Go to their support site and search that error code. That may help, but don't count on it. HP is notorious for selling defective products and have lost more than one class action suites. you can try these steps http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00489814&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=3204785&tmp_track_link=ot_search
But it could also be the error for when the ink resovors are full in the bottom of the machine. It will stop working by design then. If it were to over flow you would see where all that ink went you been buying, so they stop the machine before that happens. Best advice is take it to the nearest dumpster and deposit it inside it, and buy a laser printer. It was the best thing I ever did.
