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

1 Answer

Can't print I have been printing on my wireless network for many months. Today it won't print and when I do a "Wireless Setup Wizard" it requires a WPA Passphrase". When I get the data from Linksys router, it tells me that the Passphrase is N/A. How do get past this?

Hi, 

WPA keys is security key for ur network and when u run the wireless setuo wizard, use the key pad on the printer to punch in the WPA or WEP key.......
or 

if u were using ur printer before wirelessly, then u should still have the ip address stored on   ur printer, 
1) print network configuration by setup menu of the printer (setup>>network>>veiw network settings>>print network configuration page)
2)it will print out, in that u will have ip address.
3) go to priner and faxes, right click on the printer icon and go to properties and under ports tab, click on configure port and change the ip addres for the ip address wat u have if that doesnt work, click on add a port and select standard tcp ip port and new port at the bottom of the window and entry the ip address and proceed with that,,,,,,,,,,,it should resolve ur issue....

HP photosmart c309 printer continues to not print or will only print the header and stops printing. How do I fix it?


Network troubleshooting
If you are encountering issues using your HP Photosmart over a network, try the following steps in the order listed:

  1. Turn off the router, product, and computer, and then turn them back on in this order: router first, then the product, and finally the computer. Sometimes, cycling the power will recover a network
    communication issue.
  2. For wireless networking issues, run the Wireless Network Test from the product control panel.
    1. Press Setup.
    2. Press the down arrow button until Network is highlighted, and then press OK.
    3. Press the down arrow button until Wireless Network Test is highlighted, and then press OK.
      The Wireless Network Test prints.
    If a problem is detected, the printed test report will include recommendations that might help solve the problem. If you need to change the network settings on your product or have never run the Wireless Setup Wizard, do so now.
    Double-click the HP Solution Center icon, click Settings, click Other Settings, select Network Toolbox, and then select the Wireless Setup Wizard link.
  3. If the previous steps do not solve the problem and you have successfully installed the HP Photosmart Software on your computer, run the Network Diagnostic tool.
NOTE: The diagnostic test might prompt you to connect a USB cable between the product and your computer. Position the product and computer near each other and have a USB cable readily accessible.
To run the Network Diagnostic tool. In the Solution Center, click Settings, click Other Settings, and then click Network
Toolbox. On the Utilities tab, click Run Network Diagnostics.If you are unable to run the Network Diagnostic tool or it does not help solve the problem, check the following sections for additional information:

  1. Make sure that the computer is connected to your network
  2. Make sure that the product is connected to your network
  3. Check to see if the firewall software is blocking communication
  4. Make sure the product is online and ready
  5. Make sure the HP Device Discovery software is running

Cannot get the wireless connection to work on the printer. The USB cable is connected to the back of the PCU. I've installed and uninstalled twice and nothing. It did work when I first got it and...


Here are some guidelines to identify and fix your wireless communication issue:
  • What is the status of the Wi-Fi light on the printer? Green light means that it's connected to a wireless network while Orange light means it's not connected to a network.
  • Try to print the printer's wireless network settings to determine if it's connected to your own wireless network. On the printer operator panel, touch the Setup button > Network Setup > Print Setup Page. Your printer will then print the its wireless network information page. Ensure that the printer is connected to your network by checking the Network Card Status, Wireless SSID, Quality or Trouble Code.
  • If printer is not connected to your network, you may need to reset your printer's wireless network settings. On the printer operator panel, press Setup button > Network Setup > Reset Network Settings. The Wi-Fi light on the printer will momentarily turn off then back on to solid orange. You can then run the Wireless Setup Utility application on your computer to reconfigure the printer to connect to your wireless network. On your computer, launch the Lexmark Printer Home application > go to Settings tab > Wireless Setup Utility. Please follow the instructions on your computer screen.
If you still need assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

If they installed a Modem/Access point that the computer talks to via wireless than this has become the new "hub"You may need to tell the printer the new settings so it knows to go through this "hub" 1. Press Setup 2. Scroll Down to network, press OK 3 Scroll to wireless network setup (could also be named Automatic Wireless Setup or Wireless Setup Wizard). Press OK 4. Highlight the Wireless Modems name, it will ask you for a password that the TWC man advised you, or you have set up. 5. It should connect to this and hopefully resolve your printing issue.
I hope this helps, if so please rate this response below Thank You for supporting the FixYa Community Regards GM

HP C4380, Wireless Printing Problem


Do you have other printer drivers installed, if so thre may be a driver conflict. wireless printing requires network connection and also printer drivers. This appears to be a driver issue since the printer shows up on the network. I would try reinstalling the drivers.
