Re: My HP photosmart C4180 is printing numbers
Hello, You should turn off and unplug all cables going to the printer and then also uninstall the printer from the computer as the printer software driver may be corrupt. 1.Then re-install the software again, then re-attach the printer. The problem should now be resolved!

Go to Control Panel, printer services or preferences. There is a quality tab there. I set it to Best. Then, I take a 1/4 inch stack of paper ad feather it to get some air in between the pages and it works fine. If the paper sits there for a while I have to take it out and feather a stack of it again, but that's all.
Try resetting the printer: Reset the printer
-Disconnect the Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable from the back of the printer, but leave the printer turned on.
-Open the cover of the printer and remove the print cartridges.
-Close the cover and wait for the Insert Ink Cartridges message.
-Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer and wait for one minute.
-Reconnect the power cord. If the printer does not automatically turn on, press the Power button.
-Open the cover and reinsert the print cartridges.
-Close the cover. If prompted, print a calibration page.
-Reconnect the USB cable, and try to print a print job from the computer. Hope that helps!
HP PhotoSmart C4180 All-in-One is a not a network supported printer. This is just a USB printer.Hence you will not be able to assign or locate the IP address of this unit.
This unit supports: USB 2.0 Hi-speed in Microsoft Windows 98 SE, 2000 Professional, Me, XP Home, and XP Professional; Mac OS X 10.3 and later

Printer keeps trying to perform an alignment after installing a new black ink cartridge fix:
1.Unplug USB 2.Turn printer off 3.Wait 10 seconds 4.Remove paper from paper tray so printer has no paper to print on 5.Turn printer on 6.Printer messages to insert paper in paper tray 7.Press and hold “Setup” and “ Cancel” buttons and press “OK” 8.Should be good until next black ink cartridge change.
