HP Photosmart D7360 - error message says Ink System has failed

Customer Question

HP Photosmart D7360 - error message says Ink System has failed - error 0xc 18a 0506. Printer has had little use and just purchased new inks but unable to clear error. Tried a range of options which usually involve unplugging from wall, leaving for a period of time then restarting. Nothing has worked to date.
thanks
