HP C6180 ''Unable to scan, copy or send a fax''

I have a HP Photosmart C6180 All-in-One and it is displaying on the copier screen the message "Unable to scan, copy or send a fax". The operating system I'm using is Windows XP.

Looking for a trouble shooting manual or any information on this fault message.

    I have the same error. I followed the steps and was able to scan one page, then it happened again. Followed the steps again, but now the error still happens. My printer is on my network, it is not directly connected to my computer, if that makes a difference. Any ideas?

    I'm having the same problem, but I can't seem to clear it with the instructions. I'm not sure I'm following them correctly

    I tried Sagarjd's advice but I still have the same issue.
    I open the printer and see the motor functions well during the check-up and then suddendly stalls for no reason. There is no obstructive object or anything. I am wondering if there is a bug in the reading check-up or the lamp is bad? (lamp is going through all colors check)...
    Any other idea?

    Would there be a place where I could buy a spare part of the lamp+motor? if this is a hardware problem?

    thank you

    I have the same problem. After a restart, one or two copies or scans can be made before the same "Unable to scan, copy or send a fax" message appears. We're using XP and running the machine through a wireless connection. This problem started to occur about a month ago. The printer had worked great for two years. Could this be a power supply issue?

    I have the same problem but only when using flatbed to scan/copy/fax. I can still scan/copy/fax using autofeed. Suggested resolutions aren't working for me.

Hi,


Check the following steps:


Connect the printer directly to the wall outlet and


1. Verify that the unit is switched on. Unplug the all-in-one from power and disconnect the connection port.
2. Wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug in the power only.
4. Repeat steps 2-4 two more times.
5. On the third time after plugging the unit into power, reconnect the connection port from the all-in-one to your computer.



1. Unplug the power cable from printer when the printer is powered on.

2. Press and hold # and 6 while plugging in the power cord



Try to check the result.


Regards,

Sagarjd

The default password is either 12345 or 123456.
If neither of those work then, turn machine off then power on while pressing the 0 & 8 keys then enter 263, then press Start. It will then display the Admin Password.

My fax wont work in my ricoh aficio 1515 mf??


Using the 1515 as a fax machine is a pretty simple procedure if everything works right. All you have to do is hook a working phone line up to the phone jack on the back of the copier (the one labeled LINE, not TEL).

Why won't the fax work? If it is giving you an error message, what is the message?

If you are not getting a dial tone when faxing, unplug the fax from the phone line and plug a working phone in, and see if the phone gets a dial tone. If it doesn't, there is a problem with your phone line.

You can also try plugging the fax machine into another phone line. If the fax works on that line, then there may be a problem with the first line.

Are you having problems sending faxes or receiving them, or both?

Problem installing drivers for HP 4355 printer in vista 32bit OS


Vista OEM Cd usually doesnt come with drivers.

Printer should have come with its own cd which contains both the software & drivers.

If it didn't come with any
You can try using windows update
or
downloading drivers from hp site
