Are there any error messages or any kind of message displayed at all when you try to boot either of these printers?

Do you have spare ink cartridges handy around for the printers?
This could just be a result of the printers trying to align/calibrate cartridges that have expired and now have clogged nozzles.

    In order to narrow down the problem your printer is having let's assess them one at a time. First, for the HP Photosmart 8250, plug it directly into a computer of your choice. Run diagnostics on the printer following the instructions from HP, here (scroll down to the "Solution" section):
    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/docum...
    Next switch over to the C6180 and run the diagnostics again - the same diagnostics software is compatible for both of the printers.

    You will be able to follow HP's published fixes (on the same site where you downloaded the diagnostics) from here to get your printers up and running in no time. Post a comment here if you need further help.

    yes, the 6180 pops up "improper shut down", but I cannot get it to shut down using the power button.

When I try to print with HP Photosmart, I get


Hey Cathy,

One of my clients had this problem as well. It is due to your sensors not working correctly. In the tray there are two clips that hold the paper tight, keep trying to adjust those clips and this should solve your issue. However, if this does not solve your issue - you most likely have a hardware issue and parts will need to be replaced.
