HP C6180. I think the Black color print head is clogged. How to remove the print head for cleaning?


The print heads in the C6180 are not removable.
I would suggest getting an 02 XL black cartridge and an 02 Photo Value Pack (because it includes all colors plus photo paper for much less than the cost of the color cartridges separately ... and YES the are FULL 02 cartridges!) and run several head cleaning sessions from the setup menu.
It should do a deeper cleaning each successive time you run the same cleaning, so run 3 black head cleanings in a row (3 is the deepest).
Then disconnect the power from the unit, press and hold the # and the 6.
While holding the keys, reconnect the power to the unit until you see a reset message or until the unit turns itself back off.
If the unit turns itself back off, release the keys and press the power button.
The unit will gyrate and click and whir for quite some time and eventually settle in to a ready state.
At this point, you should be out some ink, but the unit should be printing again.
If it isn't, there really isn't anything you can do.
You can call HP at 1-800-HP-Invent and ask about their trade-in/trade up options for this model.
You can get really good deals on current model printers by trading in your defective unit !
Usually you will have a choice of about 3 replacement trade in (if the C6180 can be replaced with another C6180) / trade up (equal or better models) for your specific printer.

My hp photosmart c6180 prints green photos on photo paper. it prints fine on regular paper. all my ink cartridges are hp and new. how can i fix this. i have tried several different types of photo paper as...


Check to make sure all of your contacts are clean. The part where the cartridge meets the printer. Also check to make sure you have it set in the printer properties for photo quality paper. If this still doesn't work, I would suggest trying a different brand of paper, it may be the problem with the paper manufacturer.

C6180 failed alignment test, will not print color properly


All colors need to be present to pass alignment. Usually what I see is the yellow is empty. You can blot the print cartridge on a damp paper towel to verify the inks are working and this also cleans the head.

I 450 printer sends command to print but, no print on paper, paper goes through the printer as tho' it is printing but no print


Check your ink cartridges. Even with ink inside, the heads could dry up and not allow new ink to penetrate. Take a dry cloth (rag, not something you wouldn't want stained) and gently wipe it over where the ink shoots out of the cartridge. If you barely get a streak on the cloth, try dampening up the cloth and gently wiping the ink cartridge to see if it loosens up the ink flow.

If there is already plenty of fresh ink coming out of the cartridge, you might have a problem that isn't worth fixing. Repair costs compared to buying new are very similar these days.

Hp Photosmart c6180 all in one err oxc18a0206


Hi there,
  • Unplug the printer cable from the computer.
  • Unistall the printer drivers from Device manager and also unistall the all the printer appications
  • restart the computer
  • try to download drivers from the website
  • after installing drivers and software it will ask you to connect the printer.
  • then you can connect the printer and and try to Print the test page.
To solve the printing problem..


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer. 


Hope this help. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
