SOURCE: HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One Is printing All Documnets Faded Colors

Try to clean your printheads or check the level of your inks, maybe you are low on inks. Operating system does not affect any printing outputs as I know. Check your inks also coz HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP ink. If ink cartridges have been refilled, try replacing them with genuine HP ink cartridges.
If the print defect is minor, it might be caused by reserve mode operation. When the printer runs out of some colors, it can continue printing using remaining inks, but print quality may be affected. If cyan, magenta, or yellow is out, the printer can print only in grayscale.
Replace any empty print cartridges. To check ink levels, follow the steps below.

  1. Press the Setup button.
  2. Press the down arrow button until Tools is highlighted.
  3. Press OK .
  4. The Display Ink Gauge selection should be highlighted. Press OK and the ink gauge will display.
OR try calibrate the color:
  1. Open the printer Toolbox :
  • Open HP Solution Center (click Start , then All Programs , then HP , then HP Solution Center ).
  • If you have more than one printer installed, make sure to select the correct printer tab in HP Solution Center .
  • Click Settings .
  • Click Print Settings .
  • Click Printer Toolbox .
2. On the Device Services tab, click Calibrate Color , then follow the onscreen instructions. The procedure takes about two minutes and requires two sheets of paper.
If the steps above did not help, clean the print head.
  1. Open the All-in-One Toolbox :
    1. Open HP Solution Center (click Start , click All Programs , click HP , and then click HP Solution Center ).
    2. If you have more than one All-in-One installed, make sure to select the correct All-in-One tab in HP Solution Center .
    3. Click Settings .
    4. Click Print Settings .
    5. Click Printer Toolbox .
  2. On the Device Services tab, click Clean the Print Cartridges , and then follow the onscreen instructions. Three levels of cleaning are available.
Please let me know if these steps helped you or not. Thanks

SOURCE: HP Photosmart C6180 won't print

Ok, so it seems that there are a few different people with the same result but different issues.

If you are connecting over wireless network then first check the IP address on the printer. Push the setup button and then go down to network and then view network settings and then display wireless summary. There will be a host name and an IP address. Write down the IP address on a piece of paper and press cancel on the printer to go back to main menu. Now if IP was 169 or no link then the printer is not seeing the network and you need to go to setup - network - wireless setup wizard and follow prompts and check IP again - if still 169 or no link you have a router issue, otherwise you can continue.

Now go to your computer and check the IP address for it. The first three numbers should be the same - 192.168.1.4 for instance on printer should have an IP on computer of 192.168.1.7 or any number for the last one. If IP's are not the same for the first 3 then your printer and computer are not on the same network. If IP on printer is not on the same network then you will have to make sure that your computer is on your network and not on someone elses - if it is then run wireless setup wizard on the printer (see steps above) and then the IP's will match.

Now for all of you USB connectors the issue can be caused by 2 things and being able to copy is the key here. The printer is capable of printing but it is not receiving the print job which can be caused by connection or by software. Generally if software related you see some sort of error message in regards to an hp application or the print job itself. I will be honest that I am more mac technical so I will describe how to see it here - I have tried to search on a pc to no evail - you may have to try to print to see if you are connecting. On the mac click on the apple in the top left and go down to about this mac and then click on the more info button. On the left you will see a long list - click on USB and then to the right it will show you all items connecting with a USB - if printer is listed then you have a software issue - if not then it is the connection.

Scenario 1 - connection issue. This is caused by 1 of three things. Bad USB port on your computer, bad USB cable, bad port on the printer. First swap the USB cable into a spot that already has a working item in it if you can - if the printer is now connecting then you have a bad port on your computer. Still not working? Then lets replace the USB cable - preferrably from another working printer but you may have to purchase. Are you up yet? No? Well then it seems the port on the printer is bad and you will have to replace it - sorry.

Scenario 2 - software issue. If the issue is caused by software then you first must uninstall the hp software and then download the drivers by clicking on your operating system in the link and then going to the most recent version under the software heading.

SOURCE: HP 7550 PhotoSmart Printer prints photos with an unpleasant green hue.

If it's a B&W or sepia photo, and you wanted to print B&W or grayscale anyway, pull the color cartridge (assuming a 2 cartridge system). I did that with my HP DJ 5440 and it works perfectly.

SOURCE: HP photosmart c6180 all in one printer error

Hello,

The "Ink System Failure" error is caused by air in the ink fed tubes. We have a step by step guide to perform a ink purge on the printer posted on our web site at: http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/category/printer-repair/hp-printer-repair/ Following this procedure should get your printer back running in about 10 minutes.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

SOURCE: printer keep restarting. c6180 hp photosmart

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 also fixed the ink system failures the printer was having. A similar fix may apply to other printers produced by HP around this time. acca299.jpg

It sounds like one of the colors is not printing correctly. I would suggest , opening your hp solutions center programs and under tools you will find an option to clean the print heads. Follow the procedure to cleans the print heads, after cleaning open control panel on the computer and depending on the operating system click on "printers" (XP) or "devices and printers"(vista win7) right click on your printer( hit your right mouse button) select " printer properties" click on print test page. This page will print out showing each of the colors separately. You should see black, blue, pink and yellow. If one of these colors is missing or muted you will now which color is cratinging the issue. And at that time I would try changing the corresponding ink cartridge. Hopefully the print head cleaning will resolve your issue

Hp c6180 won't print from 4x6 photo paper tray


If you put regular paper in the tray as it is asking does the printer use the regular paper to print the picture? If so, be sure the 4x6 photo paper tray (with photo paper) is pushed all the way in, and when you select print there should be an option (probably hidden in a submenu) to select the photo tray as the paper source. If you are printing from Adobe Acrobat, I have not found a reliable way to get the c6180 to use the photo paper tray. I hope this helps.

Check to make sure all of your contacts are clean. The part where the cartridge meets the printer. Also check to make sure you have it set in the printer properties for photo quality paper. If this still doesn't work, I would suggest trying a different brand of paper, it may be the problem with the paper manufacturer.

Green Tint Over Entire Printed Picture


I had a very similar problem and found out that the problem was the quality of paper I was using. Remember, a photo printer is expecting high quality results. Cheap, low quality paper will not accept the ink as well as higher quality paper. I can't guarantee this will solve your problem but I have not had any green tints since switching to a higher quality photo paper.
