If this machined now dead or worth/possible to repair? ANy thought's are appreciated. Txs.

    After a thunderstorm and power surge, my HP Photosmart 2710 has blue screen and the lights are flashing. I've tried to remove the printer cartridges in hopes of getting a different error message, but it didn't work. Can this be fixed? It was plugged into a surge protector and everything else plugged into it is fine... Thanks for any help!

    The printer will not complete the booting process. An error message is displays: Ox886a6b72. Also, "copy", "fax", "scan", "photo", and "on" lights are flashing along with an orange exclamation point. Cannot power down without removing power source. There were storms and power surges prior to discovering this issue. It is powered through a surge protector, but not one of high quality. I suspect a circuit board has been damaged.

    Any ideas for a repair solution?

Cannot receive faxes


The storm has likely damaged the phone line, or the ADSL microfilter (if you have one). Which is why it thinks a phone on the fax line is off the hook. Check your line for breaks and your ADSL filters for a blown filter.

Hp photosmart 2710 all-in-one printer will not turn


Some of these power issues are caused by having too many devices plugged into a single circuit, or using a surge protector that isn't delivering sufficient amperage to the printer. See here and here.
If that doesn't seem to correct the situation, try a partial reset by following the instructions for that in this article.
If you are getting error messages or have other questions about your model, see you home support page 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.

Most surge protectors only protect up to a certain limit. If you had a large surge, then i would say the power board in your printer has been zapped. I would suggest you purchase a new or second hand printer to replace yours, unless your willing to pay more than the printer is worth to fix it.
Another thought is that the problem could be the actual power point it was plugged into. Try plugging it in to another power outlet that you know is working.

Hp photosmart c4580 won't print


Your problem indicates that your printer is not getting the power supply .

  • Check the power cord for any physical damage. If the power cord is damaged, replace the power cord.

  • If the power cord is not damaged, plug the power cord into a different electrical outlet without using a surge protector. The product power light should turn on.

  • If the product power light does not turn on, the power cord should be replaced.

C4180 Won't Power On


Make sure the plug is all the way into the AC adapter. Then, you will need someone to verify the output of the AC adapter. You should have a 16VDC and a 32VDC output from the adapter. If that is good, you have an internal problem with the printer. If the output voltage(s) are missing you will need to replace the AC adapter.

Here are the specs:
  • Input voltage: AC 100 to 240 V ~ 1 A 50–60 Hz, grounded
  • Output voltage: DC 32 Vdc===940 mA, 16 V===625 mA
  • HP part# 0957-2146 Call 1-800-227-8164 for availability.

    Assuming that your fax worked before the storm and stopped working afterwards, I don't think there's much you can do if the storm fried the circuit board. You could try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer to see if the storm did something to the configuration settings, but I suspect a power surge damaged the fax modem in the machine.

    If it's still under warranty, you could call the place where you bought the printer and see what it would take to fix it. I suspect having it repaired out of warranty would be more expensive than it's worth.
