Are you using "refilled" hp cartridges? If so, they may be interpreted as "empty" or a non-hp cartridge if the carrtidge shell was manufactured prior to the recent time that hp began coding the electrics on the same type cartridges. This can also happen if you are using "compatibles". If this is the case, try buying original new hp carts. If that is what you already have, return the cart to the store as defective and as for a replacement.
Remove the color cartridge, it will run on "Ink economy mode" or something like that. It WILL print from windows but the copier wouldn't work, displaying error. The copier needs both cartridges installed to work.
These cartridges are really only ik resovoirs for the printer. It does have an ink flow sensor, though. If the printer does not recognize the ink level, it is possible that you got a cart with a bad chip. I refill these alot, and all you can really do is check the chip on the cart and make sure nothing is on the contacts...otherwise replace. A good step would be to put the old cart in and see what happens...
Very simple cartridge. Check the chip on the bottom to be sure that nothing is on the contacts. Try installing the old cart and see what happens. Fortunately, these are not very expensive. Install the old one, unless you ran it until it locked the printer out.
If you are getting inksystem failure along with Error 0xc18a0106 then contact HP support, if you are not getting ink system failure along with Error 0xc18a0106 then power cycle the printer and then reset, this will resolve the issue.
