It will not trurn on does the ac adapter need replacement it is over 10 yrs old

Look at adapter, see what output is supposed to be- maybe 12 volts DC? Find a multimeter that will measure DC voltage, and see if the output plug has that across the connector. If you have an ordinary power cord without an adapter, it will have 120 volts AC like any other cord, which you can also measure on AC scale, but be careful as you can get a dangerous shock, just like you can from an ordinary household outlet.
Note: AC voltage may vary by country.

I have a Smart Label Printer 100 that I haven't used in 8 months. I tried using it again and I cannot get the power to come on. I tried to plug in to several different outlets with no luck. Not sure why it...

Sounds like there's a problem with your AC adapter. If you have another Identical AC Adapter (same connector, output voltage and amperage), try it with your Smart Label Printer. If it works its your AC Adapter. You can confirm the fault by checking its output voltage and amperage with a multimeter

C4180 Won't Power On

Make sure the plug is all the way into the AC adapter. Then, you will need someone to verify the output of the AC adapter. You should have a 16VDC and a 32VDC output from the adapter. If that is good, you have an internal problem with the printer. If the output voltage(s) are missing you will need to replace the AC adapter.

Here are the specs:
  • Input voltage: AC 100 to 240 V ~ 1 A 50–60 Hz, grounded
  • Output voltage: DC 32 Vdc===940 mA, 16 V===625 mA
  • HP part# 0957-2146 Call 1-800-227-8164 for availability.

    It doesnt turn on!!

    You might want to check if it's just a bad power connection first, because a new adapter isn't cheap. They cost about 60 bucks plus shipping from the HP parts department:

    Before you shell out that kind of dough, I recommend you first eliminate the obvious like a bad surge suppressor or power strip. Sometimes, one of the outlets in a multi-outlet power strip can go bad and cause just one of the devices plugged in to lose power. It actually happened to me once with a brand spanking new surge suppressor I purchased and I had to go back to the store and get it replaced under the warranty. So, be sure to check by plugging your printer into a different outlet.

    If nothing's wrong with your power strip and AC power cord, the next thing to check is the power connector that plugs into the back of your printer. It has three contacts on it, which means there are three points of failure. Unplug it and plug it back in. Wiggle the connector a little, mumble "I hate this stupid printer", and then observe the printer's power light.

    Still nothing? Well, if you're feeling a little adventurous and have a basic understanding of how electronic circuits work, you can check the AC adapter to see if it's really dead. You do this by testing the DC outputs of the adapter with a multimeter. Don't have a multimeter? You can either borrow one from a geek friend, or buy your own for about twenty bucks at Radio Shack (get a cheapie model - nothing fancy). IMHO, everyone should own a multimeter. They come in handy for checking batteries and bad connections in low voltage wiring. After you learn to use one, you'll wonder how you ever got along without it.

    Anyway, getting back to the printer, the AC adapter has a dual DC voltage output with three pins. The center pin is ground and the two on either side are positive voltages (+36 volts and +16 volts). If the AC adapter is good, your multimeter will indicate at or slightly less than these voltages when tested, around +35v and +15v. A good voltage reading tells you that the AC adapter is probably okay. In that case, the problem is inside the printer itself and buying a new adapter would be a waste of money. At this point, it's pretty safe to conclude that the old mule has finally kicked the bucket.

    Hope this helps.

    AC Adapter is no good

    you may be able to get a generic power adapter from a place like radio shack, take it with you and they will match and find the correct voltage, current rating and plug. I've done this many times for hard to find AC packs.

    but if you want an original you can get it here

    hope this helps
    thanks for your rating
