Re: ink system has failed

This error might be due to some issues on you printhead or ink cartridge. If you have tried to replace them or clean the copper contacts but still got the issue, you might wanna try to do a reset on the printer. Try to follow the steps on this article HP Reset. I hope it will work for you too.
