  • Disconnect the USB and power cable from the back of the printer.
  • Remove the power cable from the wall outlet.
  • Press and hold the ON/OFF button for 30 seconds. (Discharges the static current off the capacitors).
  • Connect the Power cable to wall outlet and to the printer.
  • Turn the printer ON.
If this didn't resolved, try below step 2.

My printer keeps turning itself on and off, code OXL19a0022, is ther a reset procedure? C6180


My C6180 had the same turning on and off problem. 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 fixed the on and off problem and also fixed the ink system failures the printer was having. A similar fix may apply to other printers .acca299.jpg

HP C6180 boot - init loop / power on-off loop


The Formatter board (main logic board) is faulty. You need to take the printer in for repairs to HP, in my experience though it usually works out better to replace the printer.

HP c6280 Won't load ink cartridges


Per HP:
Hold “print photos” button and “red-eye removal” buttons together, release
ø Then press the “red-eye removal” button, release
ø Then press the “print photos” button, release
ø Then press “red-eye removal, release

ø Scroll to “resets menu”, click ok to select
ø Scroll to “Options” semi-full reset, ok

The printer then powers off and wait a couple of minutes. I believe the printer turns back on (or maybe the user needs to power back on after a few minutes). The refills then work.
