Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
When I press the on/off switch the printer will not turn on. all connections from printer to pc are firmly in place.
First make sure that all cables are plugged in securely (wall to cube, cube to printer). Also make sure that the outlet you are using is good (plug a light into it). If all of these things have been checked and the power light still doesn't function, you may have either a bad transformer (cube) or there may be a problem with the printer. If you have a multimeter, you may be able to check to see if the transformer is providing the correct power (I know it has a funny end).
Note: The power should come on even if the USB plug is not in the computer. You may wish to unplug the USB cable first to see if it will turn on.
Hope this helps - Flub

Check power source. Also, if you have a voltmeter, check the power going into the printer. If all is good there, unplug the printer from the computer and try to power it on. If it powers up while not connected to the computer, this could indicate a problem with the USB cable or the port on the computer. Try another cable or available port (if you have one). If the printer is connected via an external USB hub, try connecting it directly to the computer instead. If none of these work, post back here & I'll assist you further.
