Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Power problem My c6180 started acting as though it was unplugged a few months ago. If we unplugged it and plugged it back in it would work, but would usually go off again before the next time we used it. Then about two weeks ago it got to where it would turn back on but before you could print anything it would shut off again, and now we can't use it at all. Is it the power cord?

While installing the HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers from the HP website, power went out for a few seconds. When power returned the printer was off and will not turn on when the power...


Theres nothing in the drivers that would cause this unless the software was doing an update to the printers internal software
you could try a hard reset
1. Remove all cables, including:
2. Unplug the printer power.
3. Hold down # and 6 on the keyboard.
4. Plug the power cord back in. .

Photosmart C6180 All in one printer will not start although live


Strange because I have the same issue, and I've had this printer for over 3 years but the problem just started about a month ago.
I reset the printer by: 1) Unplug power to the printer 2) Hold #6 on the keyboard 3) Plug power cord back in while holding #6 Eventually (10 seconds?) the printer will shut down. Once it does, release #6 and power up the printer again.
Warning: This reset all the configuration settings.
This works for me, but there is still an issue because I have to repeat this every time I turn off/on the printer.

My Hp c6180 printer has error masage " Improper shut down"


I had the same problem. Try shutting it down by holding the off button and unplugging it for a few seconds from the back of the printer. Wait a couple of minutes and them plug it back in. Make sure you are connect to a wall outlet and not a power strip or surge protector.


If this doesn't work, hold down the #6 key while cord back from the printer.

Hopefully one of these two would work.

If it doesn't you can go to the HP site and start a chat with a tech who will walk you through a solution.

I had the same problem, and got resolved.

HP C6180 won't turn on


To begin with, try resetting it by following these instructions. If you are using a usb cable, unplug it as well and wait at least a few minutes before reconnecting.
See also here and here. (different) It's possible you have too many devices plugged in and the printer is starved for power, or it's somehow grounding out.
If that doesn't solve the problem, you may find alternative solutions here. or here.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

HP C6180 all in one


Have an HP C6180 that would not turn on, no power. Unplugged and replugged the unit in the back - no fix. Unplugged the unit at the wall socket, reconnected and I thought I heard a faint click in the power supply. Hit the on button and the C6180 powered up - no issues. Without knowing for sure, possibly the power supply has some type of surge arrest safety switch.

Remove and reseat cartridges. If the all-in-one is plugged into a power strip, remove it from the power strip and plug it directly into a wall outlet.

Reset the All-in-One to the factory default settings by using these instructions:
1. Unplug the power cable from printer when the printer is powered on.
2. Press and hold OK and HELP buttons while plugging in the power cord.

Issue persists. contact HP.
