Question about HP Photosmart C5180 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Posted by Anonymous on
It turns out, this is a design error. A capacitor on the control board was under rated for it's intended use. Open the side of the printer that has the power port etc. and access the board. Purchase a new capacitor 330 uF 16V or 25V and replace on the control board. It will be one of the two green capacitors on the board, check the markings on the side of the component. Verify which direction the positive and negative leads go and replace the parts. Power up to verify and then unplug and re-assemble. Hope this helps. PartWorst case $1.50. 45 mins. It takes longer to get the part and open the case than to fix.

I read over the FAQ's and Troubleshooting on hp.com's website and couldn't find a reference to a 'restsart' condition over and over in a continuous cycle.
I was going to suggest unplugging it, but that you already tried.
I think there's something wrong with the board, but to replace would exceed the cost of buying a new printer. And I'm not sure if hp.com would even service it.
