C 7280 Error Message Code 0xc05d1281

I received error code 0xc05d1281 on my C7280 All In One tonight and can't seem to find any help or information on the error code. Has anyone else ever had this error message and what did you do to resolve it? Thanks in advance.

This looks like an ink system failure error situation. The unit might require a reset to fix the issue.  I would recommend that you contact the HP customer support to fix this issue. When you call, be ready with the 10 digit alphanumeric error code!

Please visit the link provided below for various customer Service contact options: 


Hope this suggestion will help you.

I think the detailed solution, by Jann31, actually walks the user through the reset procedure. It worked to clear the error, although there's still an ink problem (no reds or greens). This may be due to the previous owner having left the printer unused for a long period of time before ink replacement.

At least now, the printer comes ready and will print something. Good.
