how do i clear error message 0xc18a0001

I have an HP Photosmart C6280 All-in-One printer.  I am receiving an error message that states "Ink System Failure" ink system has failed. Unable to print. Refer to printer documentation.  Error 0xc18a0001.  Turn power off then on again.  I tried that but it didn't work.  Unplugged printer and waited 60 secs and turned back on and still same message.  The printer works with an HP desktop running Windows 7.
