Hi lee1071. regarding with your photosmart printer.. there's 2possible reason why the error message pops up..
1st: if the ink cartridge is bad and if the cartridge is a refilled ink cartridge 2nd: there's problem with the print mechanism of the printer.
most of the time, that error code can lead into a hardware failure.
now, here's what you can do..
if you will notice there's a carriage that is holding the ink cartridges of your printer..that is removable, there's a latch on the right side of it..pull it up and remove the carriage..after that..soak the carriage on a lukewarm or it'll be better if the water is a boiled water for you to melted the inks that clogged on the electrical contact and leave it for about 10mins..after doing that, remove the carriage and dry it using a tissue or dry cloth..
put the carriage back in but make sure that it is fully dry, lower the latch and put the ink cartridges back in. after that turn the printer off and on..
and if it didn't worked, then theres really problem with the printer itself.,
if you have any further question.. dont hesitate to reply..
thanks.

SOURCE: Ink system has Failed. Error: Oxc18a0306. Please Help.

Try updating printer drivers:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers. Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop. Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done

Ink system has failed. Unable to copy, receive faxes, or print. Error message Oxc18a0306 (for HP 6150 All-in- one-Printer )


Check to make sure you have ink and you have the proper drivers for the operating system you are using.

If you have loaded the proper software that includes the correct printer drivers odds are you are low or out of ink.

Getting error message: "Ink system failed; error: Oxc18a0306. The manual does not cover this. How can this be corrected, or is it a fatal breakdown? Gene


Please perform these resets if not work go for a new all-in-one.

1.
Press & hold the power button > unplug the power cable from the back of the printer while holding the button for 30 seconds > plug the cable back then release the button.

2.A semi-full reset will do the following:
The user settings to the factory defaults, Language and country settings on some models, Fax logs, Fax headers, Fax speed dial information.

Reset the All-in-One to the factory default settings by using these instructions:

1. Unplug the power cable from printer when the printer is powered on and wait for 20 seconds.

2. Then, press and hold # and 6 while plugging in the power cord.

Continue holding until it displays Semi Full Reset message in the front panel of the All-in-One.
