------------- solution 2 ----------------------------------
HP C5180 All-In-One Printer HARD RESET:
Hold down HELP + OK button and unplug printer
Hold down HELP + OK button again as you plug the printer back in.
Then power it on, if it doesn’t power on automatically.
Be Safe: keep holding the buttons until the printer turns itself off. (It took mine less than a minute.)
Now you can release the buttons and simply power it back on.
I got an error message about “improper shut down” since I unplugged it w/out powering down. After I clicked “OK” the printer was just fine and didn’t mind anymore. And now I can print.

    It doesn't have the redeye, but photo fix works in the placement of the red eye button. Try that instead and it will work.

This type of error message is related both with the printer and the ink cartridge. You may need to change your ink cartridge that you have purchased. Or you can reset the printer. I will give you instructions on how to make a reset on the printer if changing the ink cartridge will not resolve the problem

    resetting the printer:
    1. press and hold print photos and red eye removal
    1.a. it would say enter special key combo
    2.press print photos - red eye removal - print photos
    2.a. it would give "menus"
    2.b. press the arrow key and look for reset menus and press ok
    2.c. you can select the semi-full nvram reset or anything like that and press ok
    The printer should turn off by itself.
    Turn the printer back on and try to check if its working ok or not. if it is still having the problem then call HP and ask for a replacement printer if its still a new one. But I would suggest return it to the retailer because most of the times HP will send you refurbish printers.

    It doesn't have the red eye removal button, but it does have the photo fix button. Use that in the place of the red eye removal and it should work

The permanent PRINTHEAD may be electrically damaged (unfortunately it is not replaceable; you can verify this by performing the following):
To bypass INK SYSTEM FAILURE message please see the HP Printer Diagnostics Tests file (pdf) for instructions: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1813
Verify the permanent built-in PRINTHEADs electrical performance inside this legacy printer model by running the TAP 43 diagnostic test (either one of the procedures below applies to all printers which use HP02 or HP363 ink cartridges): For additional HP02 support information, please visit our HP02 system support page which includes videos of everything mentioned below: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1372

Just FYI, HP will replace the printer with a refurbished model during the first year after purchase. The number to call HP support is 1-800-474-6836. They should send the new model with a shipping label, and you return the old printer in the same box. In my experience, if you have tried the power cycle and cleaning the copper contacts on the print cartridges, I would call HP.

How does the bulb look? Is it bright or kind of dim. The bulb warming error is designed to halt use of the machine until the scanner bulb reaches the correct output level. As these are basically a flourescent tube, they will dim over time and at a certain point they will not generate enough light to enable proper scanning. If the bulb is dim, it will require replacement.

Chances are that you didn't lock down the scanner when you moved the unit. You can attempt to open the unit and move the scanner bar manually to reset it. HPs are very difficult beasts when it comes to their power up check out. It must be fully functional...including all cartridges...to work in most cases. Good luck.
