Has anybody seen this system status flag? I have Photostat C7280 AIO which gives me this error flag. The only way to clear it is to cycle power. Then is is good to go for one or two print jobs the reverts back to this state. I haven't found any documentation as to what causes this problem or if it can be fixed. Ink cartridge levels are not at issue here. Any input is appreciated.

Hey Rocketbill. Do you receive any type of alphanumerical codes or is it strictly an "Ink system failure" message? Check out this document: An Alphanumeric Code (Example: '0x...' or 'C2...') or 'Ink System Failure' Error Message Displays on...
Let me know if this helps at all!

To the best of my knowledge there was never any failure codes associated with the error message. But it's academic at this point as I grew tired of the failure and no real place to find a suitable explanation, and trashed the unit. As I long time user of HP printers this was the ultimate slap by the compnay; failure to care enough to provide adequate troubleshooting tools. I have replaced the unit with another brand in the hope of getting a reliable product.
