SOURCE: HP photosmart C6150 all-in-one error

Been on an online chat with HP in INDIA for over an hour. Given that you would "think" the error might have to do with the inside or "ink" you would think they would have me open the machine. If there is enough room you've got to read this online chat. WORTHLESS and I will never buy another HP printer ever again. This All-in-one was 372 days old and for them to not even consider going inside but to immediately tell me to buy another one. I hope you can see all of this. If not email me at SusanVette [at] ya hoo dot com and I will share it with you. Doesn't all fit so here is their bottom line:
Sequoia: I wish to inform you that HP is providing an option to exchange this defective unit with a new released All-in-One unit.
Susan : How much?
Sequoia: Let me also explain the complete process in detail so you can pick the model that suits your requirement.
Sequoia: You can upgrade the defective printer for a upgraded printer. Under the upgrade option, you have the option of buying a upgraded printer at much lower prices.
Sequoia: It means, we will send you with the another printer with a minimal cost (which is equivalent to the service charges for repairing your defective printer) then we will take your defective printer.
Sequoia: Moreover, the shippment charges will be borne by us.
Sequoia: Would you be interested in looking at these options?
Susan : yes how much
Sequoia: We have HP Photosmart C7280 All-in-One Printer, Fax, Scanner, Copier.
Sequoia: You can use the same cartridges with this model.
Sequoia: The features of this model are:
• Built-in wireless and Ethernet connectivity
• Easy two-sided printing
Sequoia: The Actual price of this All-in-One is $299.99 *
Sequoia: However, under upgrade option HP is offering for $157.99
Susan : how do I proceed when i am ready as I want to read all the reviews on that particular model
Sequoia: I am afraid this offer is not applicable in hpshopping.com or from stores, as this offer is only applicable online from us.
Sequoia: If you would like to go ahead I shall arrange a call back for you so that you can order the printer directly from our call back team.
YADA YADA YADA... Write me at above email for full chat.

After shutting down, release both buttons and power on the printer.

Alternatively follow instructions on this document from HP.

SOURCE: How do i repair: hp Photosmart C7280 Printer ink

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.
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.

We also had this error on our C8180 printer, and tried the HP Ox,,,Error reset 'solution' that didn't work. Resetting the failure code worked perfectly. Thanks so much for posting this! :)

Installed new cartridge as indicated, and tried to print. GOt error message "Ink System Failure" error Oxc18a0101 Turned power off and on again, but same message.


Hello,

Check out our web site at: www.ccl-la.com Click on the Printer service link and then HP. We have a step by step repair guide to get you going again. The problem is caused by air in the ink feed tubes and the guide shows you have to do a purge on the ink feed lines. You should be back printing in less than 10 minutes.

I hope this helps, If so please rate our solution.

HP Photosmart C8180 - Ink System Failure - Oxc18a0101


i had exactly this error message. Rang HP. They said it was a hardware failure, they couldn't fix over phone, would cost 2x cost of new printer to fix, but they offered me 20% discount on new printer if ordered over the phone.

But with some fiddling, problem now resolved. Here's what I did:

- press Red Eye Removal and Print Photos button together
- goes to Mfg Commands -> Enter Special Keys Combo. Press OK
- uaiux Support page (some code) -> click right arrow key until you get to System Configuration Menu - click oK
- should say hardware failure status - click OK
- says hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear
- I clicked OK on this and system reset itself and problem was solved
