Question about HP Photosmart 3180 All-In-One Printer

Open Question

HP Photosmart C3180 Printer's cart doesn't move.

My HP Photosmart C3180 Printer struggles.
When I try to print a document, I get messages that 1) the cart is stuck, 2) there is paper stuck, 3) I should check the cartriges.

However, the cart moves when I turn the printer on and off, the paper that was stuck is taken out long ago, the cartriges are new.

Can you give me a hand in getting it printing again?

Okay, just chatted online with an HP tech, and she helped me solve the problem!

She said: the printer prints an alignment page everytime you turn on due to incomplete initialization process.

Turn off the printer and Turn on.
Please unplug the usbcable.

  1. Lift the scanner lid of the product.
  2. Place the top of alignment page face down in the left front corner of the glass.
  3. Place the alignment page face down
  4. Close the scanner lid of the printer.
  5. Press the Scan button.
  6. The On/Resume light will blink during the alignment process.
  7. After the On/Resume light stops blinking, alignment is complete.
  8. Turn off printer and Turn on.
It shouldn't print the alignment page any more! :)
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Custom Paper Sizes for HP Photosmart C3180

I have a 3100 series HP. On it you select "Properties", then the "Features" tab. On that tab, there is a "Resizing Options" menu item. It has a drop down menu with "Letter", "More...", and "Custom" choices. There you can define the size.

SOURCE: The print cartridge cradle cannot move.

"The print cartridge cradle cannot move."
I fixed this problem by disconnecting the power cord from the power-strip and connecting it directly into the wall. My printer was not getting enough voltage from the power-strip. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: HP Business Inkjet 1200 printer always prints the Alignment Page

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

SOURCE: my hp photosmart c3180 is very slow printing photos

It is just normal, printing photos required more detail/refine and for best result it should be print slower than normal printing.

The HP Photosmart c3180 prints a color test sheet every time I turn it on even if only to scan a document. How do I prevent it from doing this?


1. Turn on the HP all-in-one.
2. Disconnect the USB cable from the all-in-one.
3. Press the sequence of front panel buttons below to initiate the print cartridge alignment process. The button-press sequence must be completed within ten seconds. It might take several tries to complete the sequence within ten seconds.

a. Press and hold Cancel.
b. While holding Cancel, press On.
c. When the Check Paper and Check Print Cartridge lights begin to blink simultaneously, release both buttons.
d. Press Cancel again.
e. Press Copies.
f. Press Paper Type.
g. Press Color Start Copy.
h. The alignment page will begin printing. If the alignment page does not print, repeat the button-press sequence in this step.

4. Once the alignment page is printed, place the page face down on the scanner glass and press Scan. The alignment is complete when the On light stops blinking. 5. Reconnect the USB cable.
