Ink System Failure on Photosmart 3210

Printer attached to Desktop  (USB) using Windows 7 32bit. Message code 0xc18a0001 occurred during offline copying. Applied fixes as per forums and HP help. Cleaned printer and performed power on/off reset (including resetting all ink cartridges) to no avail. If this is a mechanical failure, can one resolve this issue with HP parts or are there some other procedures to resolve this issue?

there's a special key combo for resetting your printer. I hope it helps.

I have found the "Fix It" instructions to use the "Special Key Combo" and the 1st step is to press and hold the "*" key.  And then press the "#" key, and release together.  Where are these keys on the printer?
