Apparently some defective components were used in the construction of the logic board (see photo). On my C6180 there were 3 failed capacitors (the green cylinders - the puffed top indicates failure) and a 4th from the same manufacturer (TEAPO - many unfavorable web references to this manufacturer). I purchased 3x 330uF 16V and 1x 680uF 10v rated to 105 degrees Celsius (total about 60cents). On the logic board, the capacitors I replaced are labeled C613, C614, C660 and C662. If you are not comfortable replacing the parts yourself (or don't have a soldering tool), you will have to find someone who will. The time to repair should be less than 30 min - I did it in 25 min with only a solder pen. This fix stopped my printer from power cycling and also fixed the ink system failures the Printer was having.HP C6180 loop - turns off and on - 74b7f9c.jpg
I ordered parts from mouser.com, but DigiKey.com may have better prices. I ordered 3 of these and 1 of these.

    This info has been so helpful along with this group of pictures:http://picasaweb.google.com/109215435720... The pictures show how to get to the logic board. Thank you for helping me fix my printer instead of turning it into a boat anchor!

Green light flashes , but the printer will not startup disply only shows hp logo


Issue seems to be with the hardware of printer.

You can try following steps to reset it to "factory default settings"

1- Unplug the power cord from back of printer when printer is turned on
2- Wait for 30 seconds.
3- Press and hold # and 6 on printer while plugging the power cord
4- Printer may shut off itself
5- Press power button to turn it on
6- Select country and language
7- It will clean and align itself. May take 7-9 minutes
8- It will print an alignment page, place the alignment page on scanner glass and press ok

Wish for all success..

HP C6180 boot - init loop / power on-off loop


The Formatter board (main logic board) is faulty. You need to take the printer in for repairs to HP, in my experience though it usually works out better to replace the printer.

HP C6150 Printer that turns off then back on repeatedly


Please DON'T keep posting messages that say "I had the same problem..." Those are useless!

If the software resets don't work, it's possible it's an electronics problem. Here is a repair note that worked for me:
