Hp photosmart c3180 just hooked up, new, comunicates with computer on all levels. print or copy will not put anything on paper, goes through all motions but does not put anything on paper, new supplied ink...


There is no reason for it not to print ink onto the paper unless it's defective or both carts are dried up. I would return it for an exchange.

Hope that helps...

Paper jam


open all door in your printer , front and back. , look for paper stuck inside and remove it. Sometimes small pieces of paper are difficult to be found.
If it is a Laser printer, you will also need to remove the toner and paper try and look for jammed papert underneat.
Once you done, restart the machine.
If you still have paper jam error try unplugging printer from power outlet for 5 minutes then restart.
If you still get error, then either there is paper inside or your printer may be faulty.

I have an HP Photosmart 8050 printer that gives me a paper jam message after each print job


Hi,
i,d suggest that the paper sensor is faulty.
try unplugging your printer, and setting it back up.
alternatively, hold down the paper-jam button if it,s flashing.

Printer out of paper error on HP694c


  1. Turn the printer off and open the cover.
  2. Lift the right black rectangular paper sensor (located in the middle of the printer just below cartridge slides) clean it up, try with vacum cleaner first if it does not help use coton swabs and clean it.
Good luck

Printer-squeel


The squeeling I think has to do with a small build up of ink on the carriage.

What I do is I open up the printer top so you can see the carriage as if you were putting in a printhead and then you unplug the power to the printer when teh carriage is in the unlocked position. Now you can freely move the carriage back and forth. If you notice there is a clearish long strip going from one side of the printer to the other that is placed flat ontop of the entire metal inside casing of the printer. Clean that entire strip with a cloth or something. Now take a piece of paper and fold it a few times so that it ends up looking like a ruler you can say. Put the paper flat on that clear strip and then take the carriage and move it over the paper. Basically your cleaning the underpart of the carriage that touches that clear strip that is attached to the metal body of the printer. Move it back and forth and you will see ink being put onto the paper thus cleaning it.

Just close the case up, plug in your printer and the squeaking should be solved till next time. As for that light problem, don't know what those lights mean. If there is a problem with teh printhead or ink though it will always tell you on the digital read out, or at least should.
