What are the causes and solutions on fixing my HP Photosmart Printer when it showing an "Error 0x18A0001. Ink system Failure"?
With Error code INK SYSTEM FAILURE
When I searched for the specific error you have mentioned, it seems that it is caused due to some air pressure being stuck on the ink cartridge or roller.
Pull out the ink cartridge from the computer. Rub it against a soft cloth or a piece of paper.
Try to refill it again using a small syringe. It will just open up the holes of the cartridge.
Once done, clean the cartridge with a good cloth.
Fit the cartridge again in the printer. Start the printer.
Insert a page so that it can do a test of the cartridge that you just fitted in.
Compare the format of the test page with the format given in the guide of the printer.
if it is an exact match then i think that your cartridge is in working condition again.
