Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Why is my HP Photosmart C6180 printing gibberish?

Hi, I have the HP Photosmart C6180 and a MacBook. When I try to print, the printer starts printing, but instead of sending out my job, it shoots out page after page of gibberish. Have you heard of this problem?  Any ideas on how to fix? Thanks,
Bridget

Yeah you need to buy a software for your HP that is apple compatible. The CD you installed is specifically defaulted for windows. It will install the software for you but because its coded differently, neither one of them will understand one another. Its like giving a blind person a book with no brile in it. He can pick it up and change the pages ok but he wont be able to read it. I think you can download the software for HP's website or google it.

HP Photosmart C6180....I have a print job stuck in the print queue that I can't delete despite trying multiple times


Try using the HP Print Diagnostic Utility in Windows - HP Customer Care (United States - English).

After that if nothing fixed click on help.Usually the prompt is to uninstall it,do so.Get the update driver from HP and do a clean installation.

Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!

HP C6180 responds to print but puts out blank pages


All I had to do was clean the print head. Try these steps: Press setup, scroll down to tools. Select clean printer head. The printer will run a clean cycle and then print out a diagnostic test page.

Well it s a issues with the ip address on the printer and the computer.Both of them are not the same.You need to delete the printer icon and inser the cd that came with the printer and then try add a device .The printer drivers would be reinstalled and it should be ready to print and scan.

HP C6180 will only print a partial document


Hi Rbluhm,

I need somre more information regarding this issue. Like are you able to print fine from other applications without any issue, connectivity and foremost thing operating system you are using...

However, as a work around, I would suggest to select the "Print directly to the printer" option in the properties of Hp Photosmart C6100 series icon.

That is:
1. Go to printer folder.
2. Right click on the printer icon.
3. Click on the Advance tab
4. Select "Print directly to the printer" option.
5. Click apply and click ok.

Then just close all the windows opened on your computer and then re-open the Microsoft Word document and try printing....


I am sure this will resolve the issue. However, if the issue persist, do reply me soonnnnnnnnnnn.......

With Regards.
Mike.....
