Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer no longer on my laptop but is on my desktop

How can I get the printer back on my laptop. I always unplug my desktop because of storms even though I have a surge protector on it. I had used my laptop one night late preparing lesson plans and left it to charge the next day. A storm came and I can no longer print. When I looked closer, my printer had been wiped out. I lost my cd. How can I get it back on my laptop. I am not computer literate.

Thank you,

My printer is always offline and when i click print it never prints! I have my laptop connected to the printer through a wire. Is is a Samsung CLX-3175FW. My laptop says that the print job is in the queue...

Unplug your printer from the power outlet and from your laptop for about 60 seconds. This will reset it. Plug them back in and try again after your laptop has recognized it. If this does not work uninstall and reinstall the print drivers and software. This should work for you and you will be able to print. Hope this helps!
please leave rating if this helps! thx

Lexmark T520 wont work!

To start do the following:

Unplug printer USB, unplug power from pc and also remove the battery if it is a laptop, and restart printer and PC.
With printer still unplugged go to control panel>>printers and empty the printer cue.
Test a replacement USB cable and try plugging the printer on a different USB port.

If the above did not work , then reinstall the printer software using the printer CD. Unplug the printer and start software installation with printer USB unplugged.

If you do not have the disk you must download the software from Internet, follow instructions below,

Won't power up

I fixed it! Instead of 20 minutes I unplugged it for about 4 hours and everything is working fine. It's a moody ol' girl.

Printer will not turn on

the UPS is unplugged from the power outlet but it is still connected to the modem

it is a lightning storm - and computer equipments & peripherals can only withstand very little amount of electricity

check your warranty status (warranty starts from the date of purchase) then call the vendor
