error message 0xc18a0206. Ink System Failure

In addition to above listed error message also reads, Ink system has failed. Unable to copy, receive faxes, or print. Refer to printer documention. error: 0xc18a0206.  note, checked my manual could not find anything close to this problem. Also conducted print print and it said everything working okay. But, again, when I hit the print button, the error message reappears.

Remove power from printer. Remove all ink cartridges. Hold down ok and help button while restoring power until view panel goes dark. Install ink cartridges. Should be ready to print.

       Keeps telling me I am out of ink.  I add ink but it stays same [re-do the steps].  Won't let me use the feature to clear any clogged nozzles. I hate to keep buying more ink.
