Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

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

Printer turns on then says improper shutdown. Please press ok. Pressing ok does nothing. Printer then turns off and starts the loop over again. Pulling the plug does not fix it. Holding down the on button or Ok button does nothing as well. I need help soon please.

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.

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.

Print cartridge
When the print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer cannot detect/communicate with print cartridge.
Clean the contact points on the cartridges with a dry, lint-free cloth.
1. Open the top cover of the printer.
2. Remove the print cartridges.
3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth. Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove moisture from the contacts.
5. Insert the cartridges back into the printer.
6. Close the top cover.
7. Try printing again.
If you still cant communicate try with new cartridge .

Impropershutdown


Press 6 and # while disconnecting the power cord (wait a little bit) and connecting it again. When the display is turned on again you can release the buttons.

After this reset you need to enter language, location and any wireless settings etc.

HP C6150 Printer that turns off then back on repeatedly


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:

When I turn on my printer I get the message Error Press OK


You have to refit the micropump gear, this is happening because this gear should be out of its place. It's on the left side of your printer. I.ve just solved the same problem.
