HP C5180 Inkjet Printer

I'm just getting the same blue screen that says: C2FF8575. With a white symbol for a clock/timer on top. I turned the machine off all night and plugged it back in as suggested by one of your Wiz guys. But, it's still coming up with strange message. Time? Time for what? A new printer?

    Thanks. I tried that. Didn't work. I'll be taking it in for a service and see what the friendly unlocal tech has to say. I think it may be toast though.
    Thanks for your solution, I really appreciate the help!

    Thanks for all the comments. The printer was still under warranty and it is toast, officially. They are sending me out a new one. No idea what went wrong as I was dealing with a trainee.

Maybe..can you remove the software from the control panel(uninstall) ??

if so, do that, and then go here for fresh set of drivers.

re install

see how that goes.

C5180 display turned white

Have you tried taking the cover off again and seeing if it prints again and if the display is back to normal. That would indicate to me that the problem could be either a wire being loose at the side cover or possibly a sensor, either way you probably need to take it back to the shop to get it repaired.

My hp c5180 printer will not start up. It turns on but will not completly start up.

We were having a problem with a c7250 not starting. We were getting a blue screen on the display. After unplugging it from the wall (not to mention som gentle thumps on the desk), we finally managed to get it to boot. What fixed it for us was to get into the configuration menu using the * and # keys and then entering 123. We then choose user from the boot options. So far, so good.

I have a printer HP c5180 all in one, only have black ink , not color, i dont want print in color . can I use the printer black and white (not color) only?

You can go into the print properties and set it to print black only, however if any of the color cartridges are empty the printer may not print until you replace whichever cartridge is empty.

How to reset the ink level on a HP C5180

You have to purchase new inks. If you have refills, it will not detect the ink levels due to the chip on the ink cartridge. When inks have been refilled, There is no way to reset the chip.

C5180 All-in-One

HP doesn't list that specific error code, however www. had a crash dump analysis listing that or a similar code. That means your printer has an internal error state. Check with the HP articles for error codes. You should try shutting it off for two minutes then rebooting to see if you can get it back online. 0xC2FF, & 0x0000C2FF are UTF 16 & 32 bit Hex codes indicating a memory overflow error (from what I could judge). If you are fortunate it will not be a permenant condition from hardware failure, otherwise your printer may need servicing.
