Good morning. I donated a HP C5180 to a school in need and they are coming up with the error code Oxc18a0001.

Thanks for choosing Just Answer.

I'm Kumar and I'll assist you today.

The error indicates a Print Head issue. You might want to run Print Head cleaning. If that does not resolve, I recommend you to get another print head. Also, I would like you to contact HP Total Care (1***-***-****) and check to see if your printer or printhead is in warranty, and it could be replaced.

Thanks,

Kumar
