HP Photosmart D7160

I'm receiving an error message when turning the printer on, or attempting to print a document on a Photosmart D7160:

'The ink system has failed. Unable to print. Error code: 0xc18a0201. Turn the power off, then on again'.


Is this a hardware or software error - could someone please help me find a resolution to this?


Many thanks in advance!

It is a hardware problem.

Either the carriage is broken, the printheads are defective or something in the ink line is clogged.

It needs to be checked at an authorized service center.
