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.

SOURCE: MY PRINTER WON'T PRINT ERROR CODE 0XC05D1281

First, be certain there are no tiny pieces of paper in your printer, left from the paper jam.

Then, you need to reset your printer - try:

1. Unplug from the power cord.
2. Wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug in the power only.
4. Repeat steps 2-4 two more times.
5. On the third time after plugging the unit into power check the functionality.

And, if the above doesn't fix:

1. Unplug the power cord from the back.
2. Wait for the unit to go to the sleep mode. Wait for 60 seconds.
3. Press and hold Print Photos & Photo Fix
buttons simultaneously on the control panel; keep them pressed and reconnect the power cord.
4. Continue pressing the buttons until the display goes blank or Reset shows on the control panel display.

Good luck.

The ink system failure message has a chance to be fixed or it may be a permanent issue. It can be pointing toward a firmware failure in the printer and if that is the case the following steps should fix it.
Press and hold the “*” key. Press the “#” key and release both keys.
Display should say “Enter Special Key Combo”
Press and release in sequence the "1”, “2” and “3” buttons.
Display should say “Support” and display the FW rev (something like R0631R)
Mine reads R0631M
. Press and release the right arrow button until the display says “System Configuration Menu”.
Press and release the “OK” button.
Display should say “Hardware failure status”. If not there already, Arrow Key over to “Hardware failure status”,
Press and release the “OK” button.
Display should say “Hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear”.
Press and release the “OK” Button. Message changes to “Hardware failure status Cleared. Press Cancel to continue”.
Press and release the “CANCEL” button as many times as necessary, so that, either the “Welcome to Photosmart Express” screen appears, or, the “Ink System Failure” screen appears. PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO PRINT AT THIS STAGE.
Using the Power Button, turn the unit OFF and unplug the power cable from back of the printer and wall outlet.
Wait 30 seconds for the power to get discharged and then plug the power cable into the wall outlet first and then into the back of the printer.
Turn the unit on. The printer may display message “USE POWER BUTTON TO SHUTDOWN THE PRINTER” followed by “PRESS OK TO CONTINUE”. Press OK. The Printer will start the “ONE TIME INK INITIALIZATION PROCESS”. Allow this process to complete and do not interrupt. Once the initialization process is complete, the printer will print out a Diagnostic Page. Good Luck!

Error 0xc05d1281 HP Photosmart D7160 InkJet Printer


The best solution is don't buy another HP printer, get away from the inkjet printers all together they'll nickel and dime you to death! Go with a laser printer, why do you think over 75% of business use them instead of inkjet printers?

What is error 0xc05d1281


Apparently its a Ink System Failure. Here's an email thread for comment for HP C6180 with error 0xc05d1281 => http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/printer/50063

It's posted somewhere in the middle of the thread.

Here's a solution to reset your printer to factory defaults without using your ink for recalibration.

1. Unplug the printer and wait 30 seconds for power to discharge.
2. Plug in the printer.
3. Hold the CANCEL and OK buttons simultaneously, and keep them depressed while you hit the ON button. This resets the printer.
4. When the printer turns on, if you still get the error message, it's OK. Then perform the steps listed above, starting with pressing the * and # key.
5. After you perform the steps listed above, when you are at the step at the end where you are pressing the cancel button until you get to the WELCOME screen, if at some point you see a message, “Inproper shutdown, hit OK”, go ahead and hit OK and the Welcome screen should appear.
One thing that is nice about this method is that it doesn't use up all your ink doing a recalibration.
