Question about HP Photosmart C5180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Hi, I have a HP C6180 photosmart all in one printer and am having a problem with it. The problem appears to be with the Magenta where it will not print red. Any red images or text is printed yellow with magenta lines through it. I have tried the usual suggestions of cleaning, resetting, realigning etc. does anyone have any suggestions. I have tried a couple different magenta catridges, cleaned the contacts and still the same. cheers Drew

HP C6180 wont print magenta


I entered the terms C6180 HP magenta into Google and got over 300,000 search results. This would appear to be a common problem with this and similar HP printers.


One source of problems is HP's tactics to prevent you from using other manufacturers ink cartridges. If the printer is still under warranty, send it back to HP quick. If you can get your money back, that is probably a good idea. If your cartridges are non-HP your warranty may be void.


The entire industry is based on dirt cheap printers with expensive print cartridges. This has been the industry norm for twenty years or so. The printer cartridges include the little nozzles that spray the ink on the paper. They can't be repaired and if they are defective you should ask for a refund.


You might exchange the printer for another one and you may never have another problem but note that caveat emptor applies and your mileage may vary.


Personally, I'd check consumer reports or other online review sites before buying another printer ... but I have at least six crapped out printers I can't bear to throw out!


Good luck!

Hp c6180 states cartridges missing or damaged


OK now this might seem bizarre, but did you go ahead and click the "Black Only" print option?

I have a C6180. Just installed all new cartridges. Tried to print and got the message that Cyan is empty. Tried all sorts of things. Then out of frustration clicked the Black Onl option. Document came out printed in color! Double checked with a picture that has lots of cyan colors. It all printed too! Go figure.

HP Photosmart C6180 Magenta Inks Not Printing


If you have lots of flashing error lights or electrical problems then it is likely to be electrical.

However, if like most... and yourprinter has just been left unused for some time? You probably have an ink clog on magenta.

Provided it worked OK before a period of non-use? Then you just need to use a PRINT HEAD CLEANING KIT to unclog the tiny jets.
Magic Inkjet Flush usually works a treat on those!

Magic is ideal for unclogging the tiny jets on any Canon,Epson HP and removing those horrible white lines which usually appear in prints whendried ink clogs several jets...

So if yours appears to be a clog? all you should need to do is to use the MagicInkjet Flush kit to soak the print head and you should be printing again like new.
