Primal Scream! I have an HP photosmart d7160 that has worked great for several years. just started giving me the message "Ink System failed Error OXc18a0001". I see you have directions for how to resolve but I can't figure out how to "open the right side" of the printer. Can you adivse as to what screws or whatever needs to be pulled or pushed to open the right side?
Thanks Sherry

P.S. thanks for your help by the way. No computer shop wants to mess with a stinky old printer apparently.

Hello, I think that is not nessesary to unplug the white flat cable. I did it. But I belive the key is the combo.

I think just the combo key is nessesary. Thanks for the help.

Thanks very much for the fixes - I ended up using solution number 2; after a couple of tries it fixed the problem.

For anybody else following these breadcrumbs:

!! Getting the Right Side Cover off is a real challenge !!

There are a couple of plastic hooks on the bottom right, and one on the front that have to be pried loose before the cover will snap off. Be prepared for rude words, screwdriver injuries, and the feeling that you are going to break the cover into many pieces. It takes patience, force, and gritting your teeth just right to get it to come off, but it will detach itself after significant effort. Having an extra set of hands might help as well.

"Disconnecting by pulling gently the flat ribbon cable off the main circuit board" exposes a line of tiny wires that engage the ribbon cable under the cap. It may be possible for someone to replace the cap and reconnect the ribbon cable but beware. The wires are terribly tiny and getting them aligned to fit the slots in the cap is almost impossible (in my case it was impossible). I thus ruined my printer. The wires are too fine and the alignment to critical for success. If you can't do it with the buttons don't even try to remove the ribbon cable.

Many Thanks for this Fix. I had already purchased another printer and was about to throw this one out, but has two full sets of ink cartridges, which are not cheap. I had previously tried contacting HP but their fix didn't work and they ultimately told me to buy a new printer. I am really glad I found your blog at the 11th hour, solution 2 worked for me first time.
Many Thanks
Jim
