Question about HP PhotoSmart C4180 All-in-One Color InkJet Photo Printer
Hp Photosmart C4180 have a paepr jam message, no paper anywhere in the printer, so I hit OK and nothing happens. Printer is stuck.
1)remove the cartridges from the printer.
2)unplug the wire at the back of the printer.there will be two wires one is power wire and other is usb wire.remove both from the back of printer.
3)then remove the other end of usb wire from the back of pc.
4)then wait for few minutes.say 5 minute.
6)then connect the power wire to the printer at its back.
7)then clean the brown colout dotted circuit of both printer and cartridge.with the help of dry tissue paper.
8)clean all the ink in the lower side of the cartridge circuit with a dry tissue.
9)then insert the cartridge and check out.
10)now without connecting the usb wire to the back of printer.check out that does any error light blinking on the printer or not.if not
11)then connect the usb wire to the printer and check out by printing a page.
12)but if any error light is bliking on the printer before connecting usb wire.then
13)in the back of the printer there is access door.to remove any paper jam if there is a jam.just check out by removing the access door.
this will help.
if still the same problem then its the sensor problem in the printer.there is sensor in the printer which detects the paper in the printer.if the sensor is broken then it will not detect paper and so it shows this error as paper jam.in this case the printer has to be taken to repair center to get the sensor replaced.
the cost of new sensor is $5 and local printer repair technician will get it done.
please do rate the solution.thanks you for using fixya.keep updated.thanks.
