Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Keeps cycling through a power-up/power-down sequence.
HP website said that the problem is low power in an office.
NOT the problem; I unplugged the device and moved it to other areas of my house (where I KNOW I have adaquate power) and it STILL continues to do this.
I checked the power cord and re-connected the various parts, but this didn't help either...
Any ideas or solutions? The printer is only 2 years old. I had hoped it would last much longer as it's only used sporatically (a few times a month).
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 also fixed the ink system failures the printer was having. A similar fix may apply to other printers produced by HP around this time.
