I am getting Ink System Failure 0xc05d1281. Help! Will not print.

As per subject question, I am getting this error code.  When I send a print job, the printer grunts through a process, then ends up with this, "Ink System Failure," prompt in the AIO screen.  I love my PSC.  The thing about printers (actually a good thing), but I really love mine......is that to bring it in for repair, I could probably replace it for the same cost.  But, I love my printer.  Any ideas on how I can fix this.  I will say that the printer has gone through one phase of "intermitttent problem."  I had an episode of the prompt......then, later it printed on a different day.  It is rumored there is a jam perhaps, but I have gone through those motions.  Experts:  If you are familiar with this specific error code 0xc05d1281, PLEASE HELP.  Thank you for your time.

Maybe instead of saying it "grunts," it more like "clicks" through a process when it is trying to print before giving me that darn "Ink System Failure," prompt on the printer screen.  By the way, all print cartridges have ink, if that matters.
