MY HP C5180 All-in-One printer won't print

When I turned my printer on a couple of days ago it started printing on its without any action from me. It printed about thirty paged of material that I had previously printed. Some dated as far back as 2007. After it finally stopped printing I let it set for a couple of days before I needed to print something but now it won't at all. When I click "print" on my computer nothing happens. The printer is silent. Can you help?

My printer tells me that I have no ink in it. I have the six different inks required, and they are all originals or HP compatible. the printer is HP Photosmart C5180 All-in-one

Good day.
There are a few possible cause why you are encountering this issue. One of them is that the ink cartridge orange cap on the nozzle of the ink cartridge are not yet removed. Here are a few troubleshooting you could do.
Try to print a print status report, press Setup Menu softhardware_0.jpg >Tools > Print Test Page or Print Printer Status report and check the print outs. If it still the same message try aligning the print head.
Align Printhead: Setup Menu>Tools>Align Printhead You should get a message on the front panel Aligning Printhead After this step, turn off the printer and power it on after 30 seconds.
If it's still the same issue, you have to manually reseat the ink cartridge and check if the orange caps on the ink cartridges are removed. Make sure that they are securely in place, you should be able to hear a snapping sound once they are seated properly.
Try to align the print head again from the Tools Menu on the printer's front panel.
Tip: If the print out is fine and you are able to print without any issues, the front panel message you are getting is a false front panel error.

I was printing a downloaded document on my HP C5180 printer that contained 144 pages. The printer started at page 144 and stopped at page 44. How do I get it to print the remaining pages without reprinting...

You don't specify from which application are you printing, or even what operating system are we talking about.
If it's Windows, then you need to open your document, hit Ctrl+P or choose File->Print from the menu, and in the Print dialog that appears specify "1 - 44" in the Pages field. Finally confirm by clicking OK.

My HP C5180 All-In-One printer says full ink cartridge is empty


There are two ways to make your cartridge work again.

The first one will be basic....turn on the printer...remove the black cartridge from the printer.. using a moisten cloth, clean gently the contact terminal of the cartridge..after letting it air dry for a couple of seconds return the cartridge.. then try printing again..

The second one is to reset the ink cartridge.. how?

1. While your printer is on.. disconnect the usb cable from the back of your printer.
2. Remove the cartridges.
3. Wait until the message "Insert Cartridge" display on the control panel.
4. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer.
5. Wait for 60 seconds.
6. Plug the power cord at the back of the printer...If printer does not automatically the "Power" button.
7. Reinsert the cartridge and close any open doors of the printer.
8. If prompted to Calibrate, do so..
9. Reconnect the usb at back of the printer...and try printing again..

After that you can print easily.

Printer says to re-insert paper face down.

You must have the default printer settings changed to "double-sided" printingor "print on Both sides".
Check in your printer properties: 'Right click' the printer icon. Select "properties", "Printing preferences", "finishing", un-check "print on both sides" (these options vary slightly by printer model, so just check around on the different buttons).
That's my best guess. :)
