Apparently some defective components were used in the construction of the logic board (see photo). On my C6180 there were 3 failed capacitors (the green cylinders - the puffed top indicates failure) and a 4th from the same manufacturer (TEAPO - many unfavorable web references to this manufacturer). I purchased 3x 330uF 16V and 1x 680uF 10v rated to 105 degrees Celsius (total about 60cents). On the logic board, the capacitors I replaced are labeled C613, C614, C660 and C662. If you are not comfortable replacing the parts yourself (or don't have a soldering tool), you will have to find someone who will. The time to repair should be less than 30 min - I did it in 25 min with only a solder pen. This fixed the on and off problem and also fixed the ink system failures the printer was having. A similar fix may apply to other printers . My HP Photosmart C6180 repeatly keeps turning on - acca299.jpg

    This info has been so helpful along with this group of pictures:http://picasaweb.google.com/109215435720... The pictures show how to get to the logic board. Thank you for helping me fix my printer instead of turning it into a boat anchor!

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 C6150 Printer that turns off then back on repeatedly


Please DON'T keep posting messages that say "I had the same problem..." Those are useless!

If the software resets don't work, it's possible it's an electronics problem. Here is a repair note that worked for me:
