Check if you have any memory card attached to the printer and if so please remove an repeat step 1. I can be corrupted. If there is no card attached, there might be a problem with the printer internal memory and you might need to send it for repair.

Hp c6180 will not print from windows vista; no error message displayed on computer or printer; print queue says error printing with no explanation wireless installation hp solution center says no hp...


This means that your system does not display any printer name under the printer's list even though you would have installed your wireless printer on your Windows Vista system. This could be caused if you have not updated printer drivers in your system or the printer is incompatible with Windows Vista. Also see if the Windows firewall is blocking the printer from being recognized by your system. get more information for HP Wireless Printer Problems . Hope this helps you.

The device may be incompatible. Remove the device


Hi There,

1
Check the device connected to the Direct Print Port. Printing photos directly is possible with a PictBridge compliant device or the optional Bluetooth Unit BU-30.

2
A communication time out occurs if an operation takes too long or if it takes too much time to send data. This may cancel printing. In such cases, disconnect and reconnect the USB cable. When printing from a PictBridge compliant device, depending on the model or brand of your device, you may have to select a PictBridge compliant print mode on the device before connecting it to the machine. You may also have to turn on your device or select Play mode manually after connecting the device to the machine. Perform necessary operations before connecting your device referring to its instruction manual. If the error is still not resolved, check if you can print another photograph.

Printer won't print


first of all never use a napkin to clean any electrical devices. Napkins can hold a static charge.Plus as you use the napkin little pieces of it could get stuck between the terminals. Add a little moisture and it spells disaster. For the solution what I would do first is unhook your printer. Shut the power off and unplug it. Then go into your add remove programs and remove all the software and drivers for your printer. You will also want to double check its gone by going into my computer and seeing if under printers your printer is listed.Then what i would do is get a registry cleaner there are many of them on the net to download. This will fix any registry problems that could be causing a error. After running the cleaner then reinstall your printer. Make sure you install it like the manufacture has listed,each printer is diffrent on how it is installed. Once you load the software and plug it in use the utilites software that comes with your printer and test a print page.
