Ever since I did the adobe update, when I print a PDF File on my HPc6180, some prints correctly and the rest prints with random letters and symbols like wingdings. It is just completely random. How do I...


Something is causing the printer to reset and start again. The unintelligible stuff is caused by the printer having lost its setup. The most likely problem is that the printer is losing power. Check the power cord at the printer, at the brick (if it comes apart there) and at the outlet. If you are using a power strip check it. If all seems ok, try plugging the printer into another outlet without a power strip and/or in another room. If that doesn't fix it, more expert help is required by a service person.

Green power light is flashing for no apparent reason


Solution

Close the cover.

Cause

Printer cover is open. Solution

Insert appropriate media in the In tray.

Cause

The printer is out of paper. Solution

  • Change the printer's print mode setting.
  • Change the printer's paper type selection.
  • Use a different brand of label media.


Cause

The printer has difficulty picking up label media. Solution

Follow each of these steps until the problem is resolved:

  1. Remove the paper from both paper trays.
  2. Press the power button once. Wait a moment for the paper jam to clear.
  3. If printing labels, verify that a label did not become detached while passing through the printer. If the paper jam was not resolved, continue on to the next steps.
  4. Remove the rear access door.
  5. Remove the paper jam through the opening at the back of the printer.
  6. Replace the rear access door.
  7. Reload the paper into the paper In tray.
  8. Print the document.


Cause

There is a paper jam. Solution

Follow each of these steps until the problem is resolved:

  1. Remove and then reinsert the print cartridge(s) into the printer.
  2. Clean the print cartridges automatically using the Clean Cartridges option in the Printer Assistant.
  3. Manually clean the print cartridges and print cartridge cradles:
    • Open the printer cover and wait until the carriage moves to the center.

Cause

There is a problem with a print cartridge. Solution

  1. Print a printer self-test by holding the power button down with a pencil and opening and closing the top cover four times.
  2. Check the nozzle self-test pattern in the self-test print out. If one or more of the solid rectangular areas are missing, an electrical contact problem may be present.

Printer continues to print one line of symbols on every page. will not print anything else


Hello there Druffe,

This may be caused of any unsuccessful printing that you have initiated a while ago. You need to cancel all pending print jobs in the queue by right clicking the printer's icon in your system tray (lower right corner or your monitor) and choosing cancel printing. Also, shutdown your computer and power off the printer and unplug the power cords from the socket for like 10-15 minutes. Then after that, power on the computer and printer again. The pending print jobs should be deleted and you can start printing again. Good luck!

I have an error message on my 2280+ Serial Printer that says ''Hardware Alarm'' Could you be as kind as to help me with this one please?


The 2280+ will normally display two lines of numbers when it displays a Hardware Alarm error. These numbers give a better idea of what might be causing the problem.

Some things you might want to try are;

1. Power the printer off, and remove the ribbon from the printer. Try sliding the print head from side to side. The print head should be free to move when the printer is powered off. In doing this you can check for any instructions which may be stopping the print head moving.
2. Check the ribbon cartridge, ensure the ribbon cartridge is not jammed, twisted or damaged. Perhaps try powering the printer on with no ribbon and try printing to identify if the ribbon may be causing the problem.
3. Clean the Timing Strip and Carriage shaft.
The Carriage Shaft is the metal shaft that runs the width across the printer. This is the shaft the print head slides across.
The carriage shaft should be clean and free from any type of lubricant. I would recommend cleaning this shaft and any build up of paper dust or other dirt on the carriage shaft this can cause problems with print head movement. If the carriage shaft has any lubricant I would recommend cleaning this lubricant off the carriage shaft.

The Timing strip is a thin plastic strip that runs across the printer just next to the carriage shaft. I would recommend cleaning the Timing Strip with a dry cloth to remove any dirt or dust. The printer uses the timing strip to monitor the position of the print head. If the timing strip is dirty or dusty this can prevent the printer detecting the position of the print head and will cause this type of error.

Other than that you may need to see what other errors are being seen on the pritner.

Normally it is fro corrupt data or bad cables.

49.xxxx error explain.

A critical firmware error has occurred that
caused the processor on the formatter to
abort the operation.
This type of error can be caused by invalid
print commands, corrupt data, or invalid
operations.
In some instances, electrical noise in the
cable can corrupt data during transmission
to the printer. Other causes include poorquality
parallel cables, poor connections, or
specific software programs.
Sometimes, the formatter itself is at fault,
which is usually indicated by a 79 Service error
