SOURCE: HP Photosmart C6180 printer doesn't

Hi,
The problem is with the print head and the , thin plastic signal cable that is attaches the print ahead to the printer. This part is not user replaceable and requires a technician to service the same.
As you have mentioned having run the HP diags. The test page , did it display yellow stripes or not.
Secondaly, if you have another computer at your place, or can check the printer on another system , it would help isolate the problem with the printer.

Thanks

HP Calibration Error


    For HP Officejet 6600 / 6700 printer models which suffer a calibration error, more than likely either the PRINTHEAD has connectivity issues (i.e. remove, clean all contact points, and reinstall), compatible/clone ink cartridge chips are causing the issue, the PRINTHEAD is approaching end of life, or not all ink nozzles are firing and therefore the printer is unable to calibration. Perform the following diagnostic checks to help make a determination:

    Tap 41 PRINTHEAD Health Diagnostics (NOTE: applies to touchscreen 6600/6700/8600/8700 printer models only):

      1.Press 'Return' button (lower left side) four (4) times until 'Support' menu is displayed.
      2.At 'Support' Menu, using the arrow key, navigate to the 'Service Menu', press Ok.
      3.Use arrow keys to advance to the 'Special Reports' Menu. Select OK.
      4.Use arrow keys to advance to the 'print mech button tap' menu. Select Ok.
      5.'code = 0' will be displayed. Use arrows keys to change value to '41' (i.e. press and hold right arrow key).
      6.When 'Code = 41', select 'OK'. The diagnostic test pattern will print.
      7.Check the 4th line at the top of the printed report; an electrically good/stable PRINTHEAD will state "Pen Status: Pen OK".........if any other message is displayed then the PRINTHEAD may have failed and may need to be replaced. Re-seat PRINTHEAD and/or clean rear electrical contacts and repeat 'Tap 41' test to verify connectivity is not the issue.

      Nozzle test (use to determine if all ink cartridge nozzles/printhead is firing all colors properly)
      Press return arrow 4 times
      2.Press support menu
      3.Press right arrow 5 times to print diagnostic menu and press ok
      4.At nozzle test press ok


      Self test/printer status (use to print internal printer settings)
      Press return arrow 4 times
      2.Press support menu
      3.Press right hand arrow 7 times to reports menu and press ok
      4.At self test report press ok


      Extended self test (use to evaluate color performance and obtain total page count)
      Press return arrow 4 times
      2.Press support menu
      3.Press right hand arrow 7 times to reports menu and press ok
      4.Press right hand arrow 1 time to extended self-test and press ok


      Print Quality Diagnostic Page (use to determine if printing alignment is correct)
      Press return arrow 4 times
      2.Press support menu
      3.Press right hand arrow 7 times to reports menu and press ok
      4.Press right hand arrow 2 times to Print Quality diagnostic report and press ok
      Print head recovery (runs 'intensive' printhead service cleaning routines, i.e. for a clogged printhead)
        1.Press home key twice
        2.Then return key
        3.Then home key twice
        4.Then return key
        5.Then home key twice...............this will gain access to the Engineering Menu
        6.Press the 'service menu'
        7.Press right arrow 4 times to 'service test' and press ok
        8.Press right arrow:
        a.16 times to 'print head rec level 1' (basic recovery)
        b.17 times to 'print head rec level 2' (medium recovery)
        c.18 times to 'print head rec level 3' (thorough recovery)....suggested for severe streaking
        9.Press 'ok' to activate either of the 3 selections above.


        Semi full reset (can be used to help address intermittent or incorrect printer behavior issues)
          1.Press return arrow 4 times
          2.Press support menu
          3.Press right hand arrow 2 times to Resets menu and press ok
          4.Press right hand arrow 2 times to semi full reset and press ok (Note: this will return printer to factory default condition; regional setup will be required following this action)

False ink empty


Are you sure its exclamation mark?..
This warning message related to print head. (warn out). When you are replacing ink tube assembly use dummy print heads to do the priming (new ink tubes are empty & they have to fill with ink)..
Action: Remove all cartridges and print heads, switch on the printer follow the screen message.(Insert cartridges first next dummy print heads).once its recognizes cartridges then it switch over to print heads,insert dummy print heads. Once printer recognized the dummy print heads, printer will perform priming, during priming dummy print heads will filled with respective inks.(follow the display message)Remove dummy print heads & insert normal print heads. Wait till printer recognizes print heads, load the paper & wait till performs the calibration, once calibration is successfully done issue closed.
If calibration not successfully done, check align print out for which print head is not printed properly, replace it..
Pl ensure that minimum 50% ink levels required in cartridges before performing the priming. Best of luck..

My HP 3550 deskjet will simply not print. It goes through the motions and seems to be printing --but the page is blank or very faint. I have already cleaned and re-calibrated the printer


Check ink-levels -- no ink means no printing.
Run a few more "print-head-cleaning" cycles -- clogged ink-jets cannot spray ink onto the paper.
