A quien corresponda, tenemos el equipo HP Photosmart C5180 All-in-One, que presenta el siguiente problema: cuando se enciende, no termina nunca de iniciar el menu en el Display, se reinicia continuamente,...

Hola este problema, también lo estoy sufriendo... encontre la solución aquí, son los foros oficiales del servicio HP, al parecer no se hacen responsables, es un fallo que ocurre a bastantes usuarios. Según comentan otros usuarios se ha de realizar la sustitución de unos condensadores, leer las 4 páginas del post. He dejado la impresora unas 3 horas aproximadamente en el bucle dichoso y finalmente ha arrancado. Igualmente en ese mismo post viene como hacer un reset a la memoria de la impresora.
Un saludo y espero haber servido de ayuda.
