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. My printer doesn't connect with my computer

Hi, Diane it is possible the power is bad, but if you wish to remove the inks you open the ink door cover and then gradually pull the carriage. please note that it would try resisting the pull.

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.

Hi - my x4550 lexmark printer wont print, can you help?


If your printer won't print when you're making a copy using the Copy button on the operator panel, it could be due to your ink cartridges. Try to re-seat your ink cartridges into the printer and make sure they are properly seated.
If you're not able to print from your computer, it could be a communication problem. A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if usb-connected), reboot your computer and unplug/replug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Try to print again.

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

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.

the UPS is unplugged from the power outlet but it is still connected to the modem
