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

1 Answer

My HP Photosmart C6180 will not communicate with my computer

I have been on line for hours with tech support. First they are difficult to understand and second they changed many of my setting. Now, I can't get many of my programs to work. Has anyone else had this kind of problem?

1. Unplug the printer and wait 30 seconds for power to discharge.
2. Plug in the printer.
3. Hold the CANCEL and OK buttons simultaneously, and keep them depressed while you hit the ON button. This resets the printer.
4. When the printer turns on, if you still get the error message, it's OK. Then perform the steps listed above, starting with pressing the * and # key.
5. After you perform the steps listed above, when you are at the step at the end where you are pressing the cancel button until you get to the WELCOME screen, if at some point you see a message, “Inproper shutdown, hit OK”, go ahead and hit OK and the Welcome screen should appear.

HP Photosmart C6180. I can't check ink level on my computer


Not all printers have this option, but i think this one should. you may need to download and install the software, you can do that from here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=id〈=en&product=1153494
Try the HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers and the HP Printing Diagnostic Utility
give that a go. Hope this helps

I get a line through my scan with my hp photosmart C6180, What can I do?


If it is a vertical line, you could review the HP support documentation for your Photosmart C6180 here:

HP Vertical Lines Bands Streaks

For horizontal lines, try using the HP "toolbox" to clean the print heads. You may need to repeat this process until you achieve a satisfactory result.

Well its the issue with the printer drivers taking a dynamic ip address.all you need to do is uninstall the printer network drivers,insert the s/w cd that came with the printer and then click on add a device ,it would install the printer drivers all over again.

In case it doesnt you can always contact a free online technical
