ink system failed photosmart c5180 error oxc18a0206

have done the following:

installed 5 new ink cartridges

performed printer diagnostics

reseated cables

direct connected to wall outlet

reinstalled software downloaded from hp

checked port setup (2 settings: virtual printer port & a DOT port)

unplugged and pressed help plus ok with simultaneous insert of power

have followed threads to http://h30434.www3.hp.com & others for c6180

now led displays welcome screen, however when I execute print command the ink system failure appears

 

only advice not tried, because I don't know what the writer is talking about, is "open plate vertex formater and EVOLVE cariage cable and power on when led shows error message

 

Is this problem fixable? 

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi

Have you already tried resetting the printer?

I had the same problem. I strongly suggest people thinking of buying hp printers to think twice. Have used their products for a while - short life time and problematic....and guess what it is expensive to repair..
