Hi @harsha005,


Thank you for showing your interest in HP Support Forums. It is a great place to find the help you need, from other users, HP experts, and other support personnel. For you to have the best experience on the HP forum, you could also visit our HP Forums Guide for the First Time Here?

As I understand you are getting a '0X' error message on your HP DeskJet 3545 printer. Don't worry as I have a few steps to help you get through this concern,


To provide you with an accurate solution, I'll need a few more details:

Have you tried to move the carriage manually?

Have you tried to perform a Hard reset on the printer?


In the meantime, let's try to perform a Hard reset on the printer and make sure that the printer is connected directly to the wall outlet and not to the surge protector.


Remove all the ink cartridges and then try to perform a hard reset on the printer.

With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer and also unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.

Remove USB cable, if present.

Wait for 2-3 minutes, press and hold the power button on your printer for about 30 seconds to remove any additional charge.

Now plug back the power cable straight to a wall outlet without any surge protector or an extension cord and then plug back the power cord to the printer.

Turn on the printer and wait till warm-up period finishes and the printer is idle.

Now insert the ink cartridges and then try to print a test page and check if it works.


Try reviewing the support documents which should help to resolve this issue:  A 'Carriage Jam' Message Displays for HP ENVY 4500 e-All-in-One and HP Deskjet Ink Advantage 3540 e-...


If the issue persists, I would suggest you perform the steps suggested in the support document for - HP Printers - 'Ink System Failure' or '0x ...' Error Code Displays


If your printer connected wirelessly, make sure to temporary connect the device with USB and then follow the link to check for the latest firmware update if available for your printer, using this link:


If nothing works, I would suggest this could be a printer hardware. I would recommend you contact our HP phone support for available service options. If your product is out of warranty, please choose paid options to get the tech support number.
