Question about HP Photosmart C5180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer is online and says ready but won't even attempt to print

We have a HP Photosmart C5180 All-in-one printer connected by USB Cable to our computer. I have tried printing a web site, a word document, a notepad document, and a test page.

The printer window says "error printing" with no additional detail. The printer never even tries to do anything, no noises, display never even changes from the welcome screen.

Printer HP Photosmart C5180 Series cannot be contacted over the network


Check with HP for a Windows 7 driver for the printer. HP Ink Jets require proper drivers to work correctly. Once you have downloaded and installed the drivers try connecting again.
If you have installed the drivers and Windows 7 still refuses to "talk" to the printer, you may have to adjust your advanced network settings as well. Open up the Network and Sharing center, click on advanced sharing settings and make sure file and printer sharing is turned on. Also check "File Sharing Connections" and enable file sharing for devices that use 40 or 56 bit encryption.
If that fails to work you may need to speak with HP support for further assistance.

Verify that you are connected to the correct network - check the SSID of your modem or router. Then verify that the printer is connected to that SSID as well. Check to make sure you have the correct network access number - sometimes an incorrect value gets entered. Once you've established the connection, check each computer for the printer connection of the C5180. They should say "ready" or "online" in the computers for the C5180 - reboot the computers if not.

Contacted HP Chat support. After investigating a bit they had me add a new printer using the virtual USB port and designating that printer as the HP OfficeJet 6500 E709A series. I did so and made that the default printer. Immediately Word, Excel and Adobe documents were once again printing.

-disconnect the usb cable from both ends of the printer and pc if printer is connected with USB cable
-open the cartridge door and remove all the ink cartridges
-close everything without installing the cartridge
-disconnect the power cable from the back of the printer without turning off the power
-wait for 30 secs
-plug the power cable back in and install all the ink cartridges if the printer turns on

-turn off the printer by disconnecting the power cable from the back
-wait another 30 secs

HP Photosmart C5180 Cant upload pics from the memory card slots


Didn't try via USB. Via ethernet connect i can reach the card reader by entering '\\printer' in an explorer window. You can find the name of your C5180 on the network settings in the printer menu.

Hope this helps
