Follow the instructions on this web page http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/hp-photosmart-ink-system-failure-1/ to prime ink through the lines and hopefully clear the error. I don't know why HP sent you new ink cartridges when it should be obvious to them that the cartridges are not the problem.

.photosmart c6180 ink system has failed unable to copy recieve fax or printerror 0xc18a001


As always I start with the dreaded question. Did you use a refilled cartridge in your printer? If so, remove it and install a new HP cartridge. Recycled cartridges are famous for this type of failure. By the way the error code is a Windows error code. If you haven't found a solution to the " ink system failure " yet, it is quite easy to reset (using the buttons) on HP C7180. You can find the reset instructions on my website: http://www.inkbank.com.au/webcontent21.htm

Error 0xc18a0101 persists. Have tried solution given earlier for 0xc18a0001 without success. Ink system failure not resetting; all cartridges are full.


Its tricky mechanism, once printer detects ink system failed it cannot be resetted. Do this take out cartridges from printer., open right cover., find out logic card., remove cmos battery., wait for 5 minutes., refix batyery., power on the printer., follow the screen messges ... I hope it will solve the issue..

These printers have been known to have ink system failure errors. This message can also be caused by using compatible or re-manufactured cartridges. We believe the HP Live update software is also responsible for "dobbing" on you if you use any other brand.
A Fix for the ink system failure can be found below Not sure if it will help with your particular error but it wont hurt to try.

I receive hp catridge error when i refill the catridge and install in my printer.


check if cartridge is genuine
check if it is really a brand new one or fake

power cycle the printer
check if it has an alignment option,align the cartridge with new inks
check if it has a clean utility automatic cleaning
or you can manually clean the contacts on printheads which detects the inks the you inserted

reset the unit if you know how to
different printer has specific way of resetting

most probably you are just getting a rejection error try using theold one if that fixes the issue it means there must be an issue with brand new inks

hope it helps you

The following are common issues.

The following ink cartridges cannot be used after device initialization and must be replaced

Cause The wrong ink cartridge(s) are installed.
Solution The indicated ink cartridge(s) cannot be used after the device has undergone first time setup. Replace the ink cartridge(s) with the appropriate ink cartridges for the HP All-in-One. To find out the reorder number for all the ink cartridges that the HP All-in-One supports, see the printed documentation that came with the HP All-in-One.
If you are using compatible cartridges make sure they are reset for use.


Ink cartridge problem
Cause The indicated ink cartridge(s) are missing or are damaged.
Solution Replace the indicated ink cartridge(s) immediately so that you can resume printing. If there are no ink cartridges missing from the HP All-in-One, the ink cartridge contacts might need to be cleaned. If there are no ink cartridges missing from the HP All-in-One, and you still receive this message after cleaning the ink cartridge contacts, you might have a damaged ink cartridge.

Error code Oxc18a0206 ink system failure


I had this same exact problem. Try doing:
1. Unplug the power cord from printer.
2. Hold both o.k and Cancel simultaneously.
3. Plug the power cable while holding the buttons.


I had to go through multiple tries of the solution above. I turned it back on, it shut off and I turned it back on again. I tried to print something and sure enough, it did a maintenance cycle and it works again.

This did not work the first time but after 3-4 times of doing both, TA DAH, it went through a lengthy maintenance cycle and then started working. Persistence paid off

HP Photosmart C7180 will not accept new '02' yellow ink cartridge and repeatedly states 'printer does not have enough ink to ensure printer health. The empty ink cartridge must be replaced to resume.' This is the 2nd HP '02'yellow I've bought and it continues to say the same.

Ink System Failure


did a master reset. Unplug the printer, then pressing the help and ok buttons simultaneously plug it back in. it will recalibrate and ask to replace almost all of the ink cartridges, however Unplugging the printer, while then pressing the help and ok buttons simultaneously plug it back in did fix it and I am able to print again. Thank you soo soo soo much.
