    Yeah, that could be it...we tried to scan last night and it wouldn't work. I did attempt to go through HP's tech support and tried everything they told me to do to no avail. They said if none of the steps they told me would work I needed to replace the unit. ...which I did tonight. Thank you for your reply!

Your scanner unit has failed. It will cost the same as a new printer to have it replaced.

Never used HP c6100 keeps cycling. Starts as soon as it is plugged in without touching the power button.


Hi,
Try unplugging all the cables from the printer(power and data cables).
Press and hold the power button for 10sec(it will do nothing since its not plugged in. We are trying to remove the static electricity from the machince, if there is any).
Repeat the same process once more.

Now plug back all the needed cables and check.

My HP C6100 All in one says it was improperly shut down. No it only cycles through a shut off and won't do anything.


To do a reset

1. Remove all the inks
2. Press and hold both the OK and CANCEL buttons
3. Whilst holding them remove the power cable from the back of the printer
4. Whilst still holding them - push the power cable back in.
5. Continue to hold the buttons for 10 seconds then let go.
6. Wait - it may reboot several times.
7. Go through the setup again and put the inks back

Photosmart c6100 all-in-one printer no power to the printer / powerswitch doesn't work - powercord is connected, outlet is operating.


Your power supply is likely at fault here.

You can try to 'reset' the supply by unplugging it from the printer, and then unplug the AC line cord. Plug line cord back in, then plug back into the printer.

If you are still having issues, then use a multimeter to measure the DC voltage at the connector's outside contacts (middle contact is not used). You should have approx. 32 volts. If not, then replace your power supply. There are many sources on the internet. Otherwise, your printer may be at fault, consult your user manual for instructions on a master reset.

HP C6100 printer won't go on -- or off. Plug it in and the blue screen with the HP logo appears on the console (without pressing the "on" button) and that is as far as it gets. The "on" button light goes...


Try This
First unplug the computer from the printer
Connect the printer directly to the wall outlet (there should be no surge protactor in between)
Unplug the power cable from the back of the printer and keep on tapping the power button for next 30 sec and then plug in back the power cable and
check if the same thing happens
Unplug the power cable from the back of the computer
(with one hand) press and hold down the (#) and the (6) button at the same time and plug in back the power cable
Release the (#) and (6) button (the printer may shut down) on the screen it will display SEMI NVM reset
If none of them happens try it once more
if still the issue remains
Do the same by press (#) and (9) button
If still it doesn't work you may change the wall outlet and check if still the issue remains in that case the printer has gone bad and cannot be repaired
Can call HP to return the printer and get an upgrade at low price for replacing the damage printer.
