Hi,

Please follow the steps given below and check the functionality.

Bypass the surge protector
=============================

If the all-in-one is plugged into a power strip, remove it from the power strip and plug it directly into a wall outlet and see if the message still appears.

Power Cycling
=====================
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.
6. Restart your computer and check the functionality.

My C6180 had the same problem. 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 fixed the on and off problem and also fixed the ink system failures the printer was having. A similar fix may apply to other printers . acca299.jpg

Where it shows the charge of the battery it keeps running across the screen and you can't use the wheelchair. It won't move. It does this every time after taking it off the charge.


Spot does the lights scroll from left to right or right to left? If they move from right to left then shuts down completely then the chair is in lockout or sleep mode. To unlock - turn the chair on and immediately press the horn button twice ( beep beep) This should get it out of sleep mode. Now if the lights are scrolling left to right then the chair still thinks it is being charged and the inhibit function is bad. You can call your local provider to have a tech check it or you can call Repair Xpress at 1-877-581-3733 to check it they have atech in your area to check it. Hope this helps

Printer on button keeps flashing. How do I shut down to restart? Printer screen keeps flashing as well. Says to shut off to avoid damage.


Just unplug it from the wall. Then open the flap and look for what might have caused the warning - usually it's paper block - and remove it.

Photosmart C6180 All in one printer will not start although live


Strange because I have the same issue, and I've had this printer for over 3 years but the problem just started about a month ago.
I reset the printer by: 1) Unplug power to the printer 2) Hold #6 on the keyboard 3) Plug power cord back in while holding #6 Eventually (10 seconds?) the printer will shut down. Once it does, release #6 and power up the printer again.
Warning: This reset all the configuration settings.
This works for me, but there is still an issue because I have to repeat this every time I turn off/on the printer.

Insert your restore CD if errors are found and not fixed by the checkdisk function listed above. Turn your computer off and then back on. You'll beasked to hit any button to boot from your CD; press any key. You will then beasked if you want to install a fresh version of your OS or "Repair" acurrent copy. Choose the "Repair" option.

After power outage, printer displays not shut down properly and keeps rebooting.


Hold the "#" and "6" key down as it reboots. This is the equiv to a cold reset. However, I cannot setup my wireless now that I've done that done the reset. It immediately reboots and goes back into the same problem. So, has the wireless section gone bad??

My Hp c6180 printer has error masage " Improper shut down"


I had the same problem. Try shutting it down by holding the off button and unplugging it for a few seconds from the back of the printer. Wait a couple of minutes and them plug it back in. Make sure you are connect to a wall outlet and not a power strip or surge protector.


If this doesn't work, hold down the #6 key while cord back from the printer.

Hopefully one of these two would work.

If it doesn't you can go to the HP site and start a chat with a tech who will walk you through a solution.

I had the same problem, and got resolved.
