Question about HP Photosmart C7280 Printer

1 Answer

My C7280 has suddenly started having error messages concerning the ink. Plus it only prints a blank page, no matter if my subject is b&w or color. I can do an alignment and it comes out perfectly, I just can not print anything. I uninstalled the printer, downloaded the driver for upgrade from Vista to Win7 and reinstalled the printer. I am still having the same issues.

Turn off your printer
Open the cover

2 .Open the cartridge carrier Remove the cartridges used a clean paper make sure its dry wipe the area where the ink goes out make sure its clean .CLean also the area where you return your cartridges make sure its clean OK .

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! :)

HP C7280 ink system failure error: 0xc18a0101


just had this exact issue with my C7280. I called HP Tech support, got a body in Bangalore or someplace, and was pleasantly surprised that they were prompt and knowledgeable, and solved the issue very quickly after transferring my call one time to a hardware support expert.

Here are the details. Got the Ink System Failure message. The error code shows was '0xc18a0005'. The tech had me press and hold the '*' key on the key pad, then press the '#' key and release them both. Then he had me enter '123' to enter maintenance mode. He then had me press the right arrow (beside the OK button) until System Config. menu appeared on panel. Then pressed OK two times to clear the error condition, then cancel two or three times to return to the top menu. Then powered off and back on, printed a test page just fine, copied a document fine.

I hope this help those who have similar issues

C7280 HP Printer. Both Magenta catridges wont print. ERROR states that they need to be replaced , but have been replaced several times and still have ink. Message also says print in blak only. click on...


I have been told that HP printers have a built in program that will make printer fail after a set number of pages have printed,
and if the NV Ram is reset this will reset the page count,
page count resides in the transparent, image or drum kit.
I dont know how to find this or reset page count but if anyone knows i would like to do this on my hp printer
please any help.

How do i repair: hp Photosmart C7280 Printer ink system failure error: Oxc18a0101


Try holding down the ok -- cancel -- black -- color buttons with 4 fingers while at the same time powering the unit off. Keep them held down till it is off. Then turn it back on normally & it should try to do "Maintenance" & you hear a whirling noise --- that is the ink pump spinning to try & pump in ink to the print head.

I have an HP C7280 AIO printer. Everytime I print, it always form feeds a blank page bewteen each printed page (print page 1, form feed a blank page, print page 2, form feed a blank page, and so on).


Generally, there are printer set up programs that will let you chose to put a blank sheet or to not do that. If you have a disk or manual, look for the set up utility and go thru the tabs to find paper handling or something similar to that. There should be a check box you can clear to stop the blank page.

I hope that this information was helpful. Have a great day.

Prints Blank Pages...even though ink is full.


problem is likely to be the print head, the ink can dry up inside the print head and block fresh ink from flowing.

you can get print head cleaning solution from ebay, which sometimes works, or else go here to get your replacement print head
