Copier not working on hp C4180 all in one

My printer seems to be working ok when I print from my computer. However, when I try to use the copy feature it just prints a black sheet of paper. When I change it to color to see if that makes a diffrence it still prints a black background and some text but too dark to see! I think the bulb is blown or something. I have already un-installed and re-installed the printer it self and it did not help any. Does this happen? can I replace the bulb to fix? Please help I love my copier and now it does not work!!!!

Hello,
You are quite correct that the bulb is blown! Replacing it is a chore even with the correct specialized tools. This is not a user replaceable part -you will need to bring it to an HP authorized service center.

Good Luck!

I have a C4180 printer but today when i turned it on the display screen is blank. Can anyone help me?


Sometimes my screen goes blank also and I just hit the OK button, i6t might just be resting. Also, Unplug the printer and plug it back in. Seems to work for me when I have to stop a print job. It resets itself, I think.

Copy feature doesn't make copies


  1. Turn on the HP All-in-One.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the unit.
  3. Press and hold the # and 3 buttons simultaneously.
  4. While still holding down the # and 3 buttons, connect the power cord to the back of the unit.
  5. Continue holding the buttons until the Power button blinks.
  6. Follow the instructions that display on the unit to select the language settings.
Then when that's done, try printing, or copying items. If its still not working, check the ink and change those out and this should fix it.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01518768&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=1141647.

If not open solution center> Setting> Printer Settings> Print settings and you will find a custom option there and then create a new size and give it a name and when you print from any application you will see the new size reflection in the application( i.e Microsoft word or excel) you are trying to print from.

Good Luck

Please perform the below steps to clear the queue and print from the computer.

Before performing the below steps try to make a copy from the all-in-one to check the hardware functionality.

Remove the USB cable from the computer.

Now click on start --> control panel --> printers and faxes --> right click on the HP C4100 printer icon and delete all the pending documents.

Now again click on start --> run --> type services.msc and press enter --> locate print spooler in services window and right click on the print spooler and click on refresh or stop the spooler service and then restart the spooler.

Now open the printers and faxes folder, right click on the printer icon --> properties --> advanced tab --> enable print directly to printer and click OK.

Now connect the USB cable back to the computer and then try to print from the notepad and check for the result.
