    I was printing and realized I was printing the wrong thing. Naturally I hit "cancel" on the printer and it just froze. I hit the power button to rebooot it and now it's stuck in shutting down mode.

Hi,


Check the following steps:


Connect the printer directly to the wall outlet and


1. Verify that the unit is switched on. Unplug the all-in-one from power and disconnect the connection port.
2. Wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug in the power only.
4. Repeat steps 2-4 two more times.
5. On the third time after plugging the unit into power, reconnect the connection port from the all-in-one to your computer.



1. Unplug the power cable from printer when the printer is powered on.

2. Press and hold # and 6 while plugging in the power cord



Try to check the result.


Regards,

Sagarjd

Go to control panel

look to left and find scanners and cameras
click scanner
a pop up should direct you to scanning options and will lead your scanner to scan the item

SOURCE: HP Photosmart C6180 turns off and on repeatedly

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.74b7f9c.jpg
I ordered parts from mouser.com, but DigiKey.com may have better prices. I ordered 3 of these and 1 of these

A similar fix may apply to other printers produced by HP around this time. acca299.jpg

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.

Wireless HP 6180 PhotoSmart All in ONe will not scan document to my computer


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
