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

My HP PhotoSmart C6150 printer keeps restarting.

I finally had to unplug the printer because it constantly cycles through the startup process and then restarts and does it all over again. I never received any error message. I just see the progress bar and this is shuts off and restarts.

I had this same problem with my C6180. Printer was well out of warranty so I removed the three black torx screws holding cover over mother board. I then removed screws holding mother board to chassis and found a 330 uf 10V capicator that was swelling. I replaced the capicator at a cost of $1.70 and everything works fine now. Better than buying a new printer.

Error message Oxc18a0301 on my hp photosmart c6150 printer


Hi,

The "Oxc18" series errors can be removed by resetting the printer. Unplug the USB cable from the printer, remove the ink cartridges. When the "Insert ink cartridges" message appears unplug the power cord from the printer. Wait 1 minute (at least), then reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer if it didn't come on by itself. Reinsert the ink, close the unit and print a calibration page if prompted to do so. Finally reconnect the USB cable to the printer. If this doesn't work, the unit needs service (or replacement if the service call will cost more than a new printer).

Thank you!!

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.

Black ink will not print on Photosmart C6150; Ink


I'd do the reboot of the printer.Turn it off,unplug for 60 seconds,plug it back in,turn it back on and see if the black will work.After plugging back in it should clean the print head and then you can do a test page to make sure.

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:
