  • HP Photosmart D7360 ink system failure error: 0xc18a0206

    I tried to print a doc then do not use this printer for over a year. The ink system failure message appeared when I turned on the printer, so I replaced all the old cartridges with new ones. The message persists, and I can not print even a sample or Test page. My page to print remains in the queue. I tried to reset several times with the method of disposal of recommended power cord. Always with the same result, ink system failure error: 0xc18a0206. This machine is maybe just too old. After spending over $ 100.00 on new cartridges that would be very disappointing. I use a Sony Vaio under Windows 7 Home Premium laptop, but since I can't print a test or sample, according to me, that question must be in the printer.  I'm holding off on the sledge hammer method for now. Help, please.

    Hey hphippie,

    I see that you are faced with an ink system failure error code on your Photosmart D7360.  Looks like that sitting for a while can be brought to shame in the printer.  I recommend following the steps outlined in the document below link for troubleshooting an ink system failure error code.

    An alphanumeric Code (example: ' 0 x 'r' C2...) ") or 'Ink system failure' Error Message is displayed on the front panel when printing

    Let me know how it goes,

  • Message 'Ink system failure' error 0xc05d1281 in Photosmart C7250 Printer

    First message was "cartridge after expiry."  I turned and turn on the printer. Tried to print again. New message has been

    'Ink system failure', I bought a new cartridge, installed, tried again, still 'ink system failure '.  The printer is a 3 in 1, black Plus 5.

    About 4 years.

    Hello rubadub,.

    Regarding your question, here is the troubleshooting HP article.

    An alphanumeric Code (example: ' 0 x 'r' C2...) ") or 'Ink system failure' Error Message is displayed on the front panel when printing

    Ink system failures are usually in the ink cartridge, the print head or in the printer. Since you have already replaced the ink cartridge, the problem lies in the print head or the printer.

    The C7250 print head is permanent and cannot be replaced or cleaned outside the aircraft so there is not much we can do with working with her.

    Go through the article and follow the steps in the order

    1. remove the cartridges and install it

    2. use the automatic printhead cleaning utility (sometimes you may need to run this several times)

    3 reset the product

    4 maintain the product

    If the first three steps do not resolve the problem, there is not much to service other than the product. Return ticket if the first three steps help or do not help, maybe we can think outside of the box before going to the service, but we'll see if the standard general steps work.

  • C6180 ink SYSTEM FAILURE error message





    HP said I need a new?   It worked very well until this and always does this for awhile after you reset it, so can't understand

    Why should I go out and get a new one for this problem.  I hope someone can help!    Thank you!


    This same error started on my printer and eventually it would power on and off constantly. Apparently some defective components were used in the construction of the logic board (see photo). My C6180 there were 3 defective capacitors (the Green cylinders - breathtaking top indicates failure) and a 4th from the same manufacturer (TEAPO - many web references unfavourable to this manufacturer). I bought 3 x 330uF 16V and 1 x 680uF 10v rated at 105 degrees Celsius (total about 60cents). On the logic board, the capacitors I replaced are labeled C613, C614, C660 and C662. If you are not comfortable replacing components yourself (or is not a soldering tool), you will need to find someone who will. The repair time should be less than 30 min - I did it in 25 minutes with only a solder pen. This also fixed the ink the printer was to have system failures. A similar fix may apply to other printers.

  • 0xc19a0020 ink system failure error message


    I have a HP Photosmart Plus, product # CN216, model # B210a. I'm running Mac OS X 10.7.5

    Today, I turned on my printer and got the error message "ink system failure 0xc19a0020 please turn printer Off and then on.

    So I did, but still got the error. So, I did the troubleshooting, which told me how to clean the print head. I've done 3 times, but I still get the error. I unplugged the power cord from the printer, then the wall, waited, then reconnected. I still get the error.

    I use the printer at least once a week, so he hasn't been sitting unused for too long.  I have not changed anything or whatever installed lately. The ink cartridges have ink.

    Anything else I can try? The replacement print head is $72!

    Thank you!

    Sorry, but generally, this can be a bad head of printing or bad cartridges. Here is a link that will help you with this problem, even if you did most of these steps.


    If you have already replaced the front print heads and you return to this same stage, it would be a bad printer and maintenance needs.

  • HP Officejet 6500 E709n: HP Officejet 6500 E709n - ink system failure error message.

    I have a printer HP Officejet 6500 E709n.  I get the following error message when I turn on the printer:

    'Ink system failure.  "Please turn printer off, then on.

    I then do as instructed and turn the printer off, but then the whenever I re - turn on the printer, I get the same error again.  The printer is now fixed to the top and none of the buttons on the printer works except the Power button on / off.

    Any suggestions on how to proceed?

    Hi @recooke,

    Welcome to the Forums of HP Support! I see that you can not use your HP Officejet 6500 Wireless. You get a printer fault to "turn printer off and then on again" you did without success.

    Please perform a hard reset:

    1. disconnect all cables and cards of memory in the printer.  Unplug the power cord, directly from the back of the printer when the printer is still on.

    2. unplug the other end of the power cord.

    3. If there is a power supply on the power cord, disconnect one end and reconnect it.
    4. at the end of 60 seconds, plug it directly into a wall outlet (not a surge protector or battery backup).
    5. connect the power cord to the back of the printer.
    6. the printer should automatically power back upward.  If not, turn it on with the power button.

    7. try to make a photocopy (if your printer is an all-in one) before you connect the cables from the printer.

    8. connect the other cables needed to the printer.

    It is recommended that the printer is plugged directly into a wall socket to ensure a uniform level of power.  Sometimes, when plugged into a surge protector or battery backup, the quantity of electricity is not received by the printer.  Power problems can cause printing problems.  It is particularly important to be plugged directly into a wall outlet with wireless connectivity problems, "sleep mode" and other power problems.

    Any change?

    If you still see the error, please check your Inbox. I sent you a private message on the Forums.

    Response with the result. I hope this helps.

  • You have one (0xc) ink SYSTEM FAILURE error message?

    OK, I have an old printer (C6180 (Yes this old)) I had to put in stock for a long overseas military tour.  When I finally returned, I swapped the ink cartridges and get an error code of 0Xc18a0406.  It is not a removable print head, so I am at a loss to try to clean it.  Any suggestion or help would be appreciated.

    I wil send you a private message to something else, you can try.

  • First HP, I bought more than a decade (c410a) and it has an ink SYSTEM FAILURE error from the first day

    Photosmart Premium left me very unhappy.  I stopped to buy HP more than a decade and now I'm wishing that I would have stuck with my decision.  Myself and 3 other friends have bought these printers and both of us have had problems.

    I went through the steps, had a new printhead ink shipped, walked and steps with new tech mistakes really falling.  Last person said they were doing an interview, so that they couldn't transfer me.  Now I remember and of course no sequel to our conversation has been documented, so they want to go through it all over again.  Two hours of technical support, my mother and three calls not a printer to work.  I can't believe I bought two of these things.  It's obviously bad (probably where the print head comes in contact with the cart / I guess).  I am disappointed by the printer and support at this point.  I refuse to continue to waste hours of my time talking to representatives of phone asking me to do the same thing again and again.  I can just this thing replaced?

    The order number for the replacement print head and ink cartridges that were shipped to me is KEB489-01.  I have provided a phone number and email address.

    So I lost another hour talking with support just to send me a refurbished printer to replace my printer $300 + with less than 10 pages printed on it.  Not cool.  Had to share all the trays and the stuff of my original machine, because the replacement came not with them (I had not packed it again for good).  So of course I had to file this stuff at a Fedex in 3 days, so that they don't charge me for the price of a NEW printer.  Absolultely horrible experience.  I bought this for my mother, who never wants another HP product again (his words).  Good thing I kept his gun hung for her, otherwise she would have been dead in the water for the print jobs.  I'm not sure why this guy who kept telling me he was a supervisor (must be a big problem there) was surprised that she was angry that she had a Refurb in lieu of a NEW printer. He told her that if the printer was less than $100 that they would have just replaced.  Huh?  For the record, I'm not new at this.  I did PC support since 1989 and currently hold a COMPUTER job with a Fortune 500 company.  I did RMA with most computer component companies major, their distributors, etc.  As a regular user, I am very disappointed with HP.  Between this printer problem and the problems I had when I went from Dell to HP laptops, I think twice before you buy HP again.

    SOLUTION: Pray that your printer works (one on two of my friends did and works very well).  If not, immediately take it back to the place of purchase.  Otherwise risk of lack of hours out of your day dealing with support, shipping, etc. and reception of material used back.
