Question about HP Photosmart C3180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Will copy, won't print

The printer was on and connected to the computer during a lightning storm. A new motherboard fixed the computer. But now the printer will make copies, but won't print from the computer. The OS (win XP) seems to find the printer, but reports a problem with the USB connection. I was hoping there was a single USB chip that could be replaced, but I don't have a schematic. I have several ink cartridges on hand for this printer, so it seems worthwhile to try to fix it.

You may have to reinstall the printer software. The computer may have lost the printer driver and the connection recognition.
if not, try a different USB port, and replace the USB cable if necessary

My office jet G85 won't print. No error messages appear,it has a new color cartridge,it copies, but won't print from my computer.


If it copies ok, then the issue is either the way it is cabled to computer or the print driver software settings on pc.... How is it connected via USB? Check port and correct driver is in windows/control panel/printers. Reinstall.

Won't print (surge?) after storm; fax off the hook


Yes it would appear your printer have been damaged due to the storm. The reason your fax is "off hook" the that the photocoupler that protects the printer from surges on the telephoone line has "blown". THe printing problem is due the the surge that damaged your computer also passed down the USB cable to the Printer and has "fried" that part of the circuitry
It maybe possible to repair it but you will need to take it to a Samsung Repair centre or Authorised Repair centre

Sorry for the bad news but hope it helped

Have you tried the speakers on any other source?

Have you replaced any power surge or power strips that you may be plugged into, Or at least tried to plug into a different source.

You issue may just be an unclean source of power.

Lightning Strike Broke Printer


I hate to say it, but you'd be much better off buying a new printer. Prices are so low these days, you'll spend much less on a brand new one then parts and labor, even at a discount shop.
You can get a new all-in-one printer for as low as $50 from tigerdirect.

Compac presario 2200


There is a high probability that your laptop has been fried, especially if it was plugged into the mains at the time of the lightning strike.
A lightning strike could damage many components and even if you could get it fixed (most likely require a motherboard replacement) there are no guarentees that some other component won't fail in the future.
If it was me, I would put my money towards a new laptop and get a surge/lightning protection power board and disconnect the laptop from the main during a lightning storm.

That cable could be the wake-on-LAN cable, it is used for the connection of the card to the motherboard's wake-on-LAN slot, this is only used if your motherboard supports wake-on-LAN and you want to open your pc remotely from another location. But if don't need remote pc connection you don't need to install this cable.
