Thanks to Anuj Bhatt who previously posted:
Reset the printer by following steps
1. Unplug the power cable from printer when the printer is powered on and wait for 20 seconds.

2. Then, press and hold # and 6 while plugging in the power cord.

Continue holding until it displays Semi Full Reset message in the front panel of the All-in-One.

    This method worked for me, and WITHOUT the replacement of capacitors. Try this first before performing invasive methods and save yourself time and money.

Please DON'T keep posting messages that say "I had the same problem..." Those are useless!

If the software resets don't work, it's possible it's an electronics problem. Here is a repair note that worked for me:

While the printer is still on, remove all the 02 cartridges, be careful not to get ink on places where you set them down at. Close the cover, remove the power cord from the printer without turning the unit off. Clean the surface carefully with a soft and clean napkin, Wait for 20 sec, Put the printer back "ON" . Install one cartridge, close the cover wait for a message, then repeat with each of the cartridges. See if that will work. You can mail me for further explanation... Obehiadoghe@yahoo.com I hope to hear from you soon.

HP PHotosmart c6150 keeps shutting on and off repeating the same meassage improper shutdown.


You need to reset the printer. I had the same exact problem with a C6150. Unplug the power cord from back "while printer power is on" (doesn't have to be fully booted just turning on). Wait 20 seconds, hold # and 6 keys together and plug power back in. Continue to hold until power goes off or semi-reset message comes up. Power up (if off) press OK for any error messages and let the printer cycle. Should be good to go. Mine sounded very noisy while it was trying to allign internally. I can only suspect that was the initial problem but this process fixed mine and it runs great now. Hope this helps.

Black ink will not print on Photosmart C6150; Ink


I'd do the reboot of the printer.Turn it off,unplug for 60 seconds,plug it back in,turn it back on and see if the black will work.After plugging back in it should clean the print head and then you can do a test page to make sure.

Same problem, hp c6150 turns on and shuts down in infinite loop.


In visiting with HP Support Personnel, this issue is most likely caused by a faulty power source. I have the same issue with our C6150 and they recommended that I look at replacing power cable. I am currently trying to find a new power cable.
