The Ink System Failure messages on my C6180 were early symptoms that progressed continuous power cycling. 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 fix stopped my printer from power cycling and also fixed the ink system failures the Printer was having.Hi, My HP Photosmart C6180 All-in-One series - 74b7f9c.jpg

How can i fix my C6180 HP photosmart computer with msg of improper shutdown from wall switch


Try what they call a hard boot. In other words completely power down ththe printer by either removing the power cord or shutting down via the power button. If this does not work try to enter the menu and clear the arror code manually. Hope this helps.

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.

I get a line through my scan with my hp photosmart C6180, What can I do?


If it is a vertical line, you could review the HP support documentation for your Photosmart C6180 here:

HP Vertical Lines Bands Streaks

For horizontal lines, try using the HP "toolbox" to clean the print heads. You may need to repeat this process until you achieve a satisfactory result.

HP C6180 ''Unable to scan, copy or send a fax''


Hi,


Check the following steps:


Connect the printer directly to the wall outlet and


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.



1. Unplug the power cable from printer when the printer is powered on.

2. Press and hold # and 6 while plugging in the power cord



Try to check the result.
