I have a problem with this printer, for those again, its a HP Photosmart C7180 all-in-one.
I turn on the printer and the first thing which appears is the loading screen with the HP logo. All seems normal.
Then comes the problem: Ink system failure. Copy, telecopy, reception and print impossible.
The error code is the following:
I restarted the printer plugged of the power cord after turning off then replugged in turned on still the same problem.
Calibration tryed but fails as soon as I do it.
Note: If I plug in or out the printer's USB on my computer during its on, it doesn't make any difference. It just seems that my PC doesn't reconize any new hardware. For the easy and not helping answers my PC is alright any other hardware I plug in, my PC reacts and installs it ;).
In other words I don't have any method to reach the printer via USB.
Any help? Thank you.

No other solution that I can think about, sorry.
Any electronic board can go bad at any time w/out warnings.
It could be just a cold solder joint causing it but again you cannot see it.

I just hope those things are not expensive.
At least if I repair it so I am starting to become a pro in printer repairs xD.
At least I do on PC's xP
