  • Failure ink system - error 0xc18a0206

    I have a HP PhotoSmart C7250 all-in-one that has the error:

    Ink system failure

    Ink system has failed.  Cannot copy, receive faxes. or print.  Refer to the printer documentation.  Error 0xc18a0206. Stop the power, then on again.

    I was not able to locate this error in any manual or on the website of HP.  I found similar ones involving different printers and cartridges.

    I tried several scenarios to powering off the printer, unplug the power and remove the cartridges, but nothing works.  I noticed that the cartridges have dates that are in the past.  Before you go out and buy a new set of ink cartridges, I would like to know if this is a possible solution to the problem.  They are all new (just open the packaging) but more than one year after the date on them.  I don't want to buy a complete set of cartridges, so I'll have to replace the printer (who knows what cartridges will take a new printer).  After all, the cost of the cartridges, it would be a good part of the cost of a new unit.


    A few months back, I did a collection of solution for this problem. He helped resolved much ink system failures up to that date. You can check it out.

  • 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.

  • HP Photosmart C5180: get the ink system error message

    Hello @crisgroup,

  • A delivery of ink failure on HP Photosmart C7200 series a.

    A delivery of ink failure on HP Photosmart C7200 series a. Reset and still having the issue. Sometimes after a reboot, we print a little before the error occurs again.

    It seems that the ink inside the printer system is developing an electrical problem.  Have you tried to clean the contacts on the ink cartridges and the printhead of the printer?

    In addition, there are a document with steps to help solve this type of error code.  The document can be accessed here.  The steps can help determine if the problem can be resolved, or if a non repairable hardware problem has developed.

  • HP Pavilion 030ea-b: Hardware Diagnostics failure error

    Thank you very much

    Hi @23 - B030ea,.

    Welcome to the Forums of HP Support!  I understand that tests your cam drive upward with an error when you run the UEFI. I'm happy to give you a helping hand with this.

    I checked the ID failed you posted and it gave me the error code SMART Drive from 305. Now if your hard drive still works for you, I highly recommend to make a backup of all the data that is important to you as soon as possible. A SMART test drive is usually a predictor of drive failure. It could happen today or in a few months, but rather than to risk of losing everything, it is best to take precautions.

    See also this paper: HP laptops - Hard Drive failure errors: failure Imminent, Smart, BIOHD, HD535, etc.

    Once your data is safely backed up, you should probably look at a replacement hard drive.

    Please let me know if it works for you and if it does not solve your problem, please mark this message as a solution. Bravo would be appreciated as well.

  • ink cartridge error (failed electric pen)

    Deskjet D4360 printer; 32-bit Windows/vista; request entry/solution for/on "ink cartridge error (failed electric pen)."  new placement of ink cartridge were found. due research: have cleaned the contacts of cartridges (w / fluffy lin distilled water & reinstall cartridge. problem persists)

    What cartridge has been replaced? Make sure the printer is connected directly to the wall jack to make sure that the printer gets enough energy to function properly. Remove the cartridge and inspect the chute. Do you see differences between the two falls as a missing metal PIN or debris in one that is not in the chute on the other? Given that you have cleaned and inspected the cartridges already, I would then try reset the printer the following. No user settings are lost with this reset and they're trying to put the printer back into a known working state and clear the error message.

    To do this reset:
    1. take the cartridges from the printer and close the access door.
    2. If the printer is turned on, unplug the power cord at the back of the printer. Then disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet
    3. wait at least 30 seconds
    4. connect the power cord to the wall outlet, and then again in the printer
    5 wait for the machine to start. Once he recognizes that the cartridges are missing, place them in a moment.

    I hope this helps.

  • laptop hard drive failure error 301 on my device

    a few descryption

    . device name - hp pavilion g61200 do you

    . the problem in the hard disk it displays SMART drive failure error (301)


    I want to know, what is the ERROR DISK HARD SMART 301

    with in a few days I am facing this problem in my device

    so, what can I do for this problem...

    Please tell me


    Do a hard reset first.

    The SMART drive test produces a prediction on the risk of hard drive failure, not a real failure.

    A warning to SMART disk error can appear for various reasons such as having been jarred abruptly computer or hard drive, be subject to the higher than usual temperature.

    Perform HP hard drive - wide test of the system BIOS Diagnostics shortly after switching on, tapping F10/F2

    If there are any Smart player or hard failure error you see, Hard Drive is a failure and the solution is to replace the drive.

    It would also be very wise to make sure that you back up all your files etc as soon as possible.

    Thank you
