Question about HP PhotoSmart C4180 All-in-One Color InkJet Photo Printer
One....printer will not turn off, when plugged in?
Two.....ink cartridge holder does not slide to the right?
For the first problem you need to check the control panel board connector and make sure it making proper contact. Had a similar problem with my printer and after trouble shooting
i realized that the connector ws not make full contact. after soldering it, it worked properly.

Tips for a great answer:
Error Code 5100 Error 5200: Start with printer powered off
It can have a lot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display) Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corresponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on)
1. Open cover of printer and verify that the ink cartridge carriage is not in the center of the printer. Leave cover open.
2. Unplug the electrical cord from the printer and wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug electrical cord back in, when ink cartridge carriage moves to the center of the printer quickly unplug the electrical cord again. This should leave the ink cartridge carriage in the center of the printer so you can get to it.
4. Lift up the gray arm that surrounds the ink cartridges.
5. Remove the entire ink cartridge holder (not just the ink cartridges). It will lift out easily as a unit. Lower the gray arm that you lifted to remove the cartridge holder.
6. Close printer cover. Plug electricity back in.
7. There should be a message about checking the ink cartridge on the display (I can't remember exactly what it said but it was something like that).
8. Open printer, lift the gray arm that surrounds the ink cartridge area and reinsert the ink cartridge holder (with the ink cartridges in it). Lower the gray arm.
9. Close printer cover.
10. The display should appear normal now, and you should be able to print again.

the power button. Allow the unit to power up. The power button will turn green
Turn on the Printer and Open the top cover of the Lexmark 2600 by lifting the cover
upward. you will find all cartridges down there.
Now you see how to replace them
Remove the black ink cartridge from it's packaging. Remove
the tape from the black ink cartridge first and place the cartridge into the
left ink cartridge holder. Press the cartridge down into until you hear it lock
into place. Close the ink cartridge holder lid by pressing it down firmly. This
secures the ink cartridge in place.
Remove the colored ink cartridge from the packaging and
remove the tape from the cartridge. Place the cartridge into the right
cartridge holder and press down until it clicks into place. Push down the
cartridge holder lid.
Close the lid of the Lexmark 2600 and allow the print
cartridges to align. The power light will be blinking while the cartridges are
being aligned; once the power light turns solid, the printer is ready for use.
