If you mean Ink System Failure, it is usually caused by a mechanical gear failure inside. Refer to http://www.fixya.com/support/t439120-ink_system_failure_error_message

Its probably dried up ink particles on the cartdridge and the contacts in the carrier.

First, if your going away for a while, its good to remove the ink and replace with new ones. They tend to settle and dry up if left sitting for too long. Thast why they are sealed when you bye them, to keep the contacts from getting buildup.

Try using a wetted paper towel and cleaning the contacts on the cartdridge and in the printer carier.

have printer unplugged when doing this.

Also, check the manual, theres often a key function that you can do tyo return the printer to factory defaults.

0xc18a0106 error from hp 3310 printer.... ink system has failed


That error code indicates a Ink system failure error message. Ink system failed mainly caused by your cartridge spitting extra inks into the copper contacts inside the printer. All you need is to remove all cartridge, clean the copper contacts at the back of it, clean also the contacts inside the printer (cartridge slots). Insert it back in after cleaning, unplug the power cord without turning off the printer, wait for 1 min before plugging it back in. Let me know the result.

Printing problem hp D7160 error 0xc18a0001 please help


Hi,problem can be solved .Please check out this link for the Ink System Failure problem.

fixyourownprinter.com/forums/printer/39471

These are from the link above:

Reset the system by holding down the OK, Cancel, Black, and Color buttons down at the same time and turn the 3310 off. Keep holding the buttons down until the printer shuts off and then turn it back on. You will have to turn the printer off twice and then it will recalibrate.

Our HP 3310 was having the same ink system failure. Tried everything I could find, and had just about given up when I found this forum. I didn't quite get the reset right the first time, but on the second try it worked. After holding down OK, Cancel, Black and Color buttons while turning it off, I turned it back on, it turned itself off and I turned it back on again, it started off doing the calibration and it took about 5 minutes, but when it was finished I had a working printer again.

Have a hp 3310 it says ink system failure error 0xc18a0106 it wont print,scan,copy and it does have enough ink. thank 4 ur help


Turn off the machine using the power button, unplug the power cord from the back of the machine, remove the ink cartridges, wait 2 min, plug the power cord back in, press the on button, wait until the printer prompts that the ink cartridges are missing, then replace the ink cartridges. If this doesn't clear the error then you may need to re-prime ink through the system to clear the error. There are good instructions for doing this at http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/hp-photosmart-ink-system-failure-1/.

HP 3310 All In One Error


Try to reset the system by holding down the OK, Cancel, Black, and Color buttons at the same time and turn the 3310 off. Keep holding the buttons down until the printer shuts off and then turns itself back on. You will have to turn the printer off twice and then it will recalibrate. Make sure you have new cartridges in the printer so that it can reset.
