HP Photosmart c7180: "Ink System Failure" error code Oxc18a0306

I got the "Ink system failure" message today after replacing my
yellow ink. Printer screen said turn power off and back on.
I have done this several times without success.
I was warned yesterday to replace yellow but I waited until I received
2nd message, today.
I purchased the printer in Dec 2006.

    I have the same error message Ink system has failed error code 0xc18a0106. How do I fix?

  • derichter Feb 03, 2009

    I just had the exact same problem after replacing the yellow cartridge. I've never had a problem before with any other color cartridges upon replacement. I spent two hours on the phone with someone from India in support and we got absolutely nowhere. She suggested I purchase an upgraded one. I've only had this for two years. Did anyone get a suggestion for a fix on this problem????

    Same problem with my yellow 02 inkjet.
    I did not replace it right away,did not have that replacement at home. HP suggested cleaning sensor with q-tip and distilled water, that did nothing. Tried cleaning the contactors with tip of small screwdriver to no avail. Have 2 year warrantee, I think it's up, can't find sales slip anyway. I have a spare printer and scanner, I'll have to go without the fax, had enough of this.

The error that you are having is a hardware issue, it means your printer has an Ink System Failure. 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.

Go to http://www.ccl-la.com/blog and search for HP Photosmart. They have two protocols for clearing ink system failure errors. One resets the machine and the other re-primes ink through the lines.

Ink system failure


HP Photosmart C7180 will not accept new '02' yellow ink cartridge and repeatedly states 'printer does not have enough ink to ensure printer health. The empty ink cartridge must be replaced to resume.' This is the 2nd HP '02'yellow I've bought and it continues to say the same.

Hp c7180 ink failure


Here is the exact sequence for the C7180. It worked great for me:
This is easily fixed with the following key sequences. You do NOT have to open the printer and unplug a circuit board.

1) press * and # at the same time
2) press 1, 2, 3 and “support R0632M” should display
3) press > and “information menu” should display
4) press > and “configuration menu” should display
5) press OK and “hardware failure status” should display
6) press OK “failure status: clear”. Press OK to clear
7) press CANCEL
8) press CANCEL
9) press CANCEL
10) turn printer off, unplug power cord for 2 minutes, plug cord back in then turn printer back on.
NOTE: I did this and the fist time the error came back. Do the sequence again (as I did) and the error will be replaced with the usual print cartridge initialization screens. Print a test page to make sure.
