The HP Photosmart c3180 prints a color test sheet every time I turn it on even if only to scan a document. How do I prevent it from doing this?


1. Turn on the HP all-in-one.
2. Disconnect the USB cable from the all-in-one.
3. Press the sequence of front panel buttons below to initiate the print cartridge alignment process. The button-press sequence must be completed within ten seconds. It might take several tries to complete the sequence within ten seconds.

a. Press and hold Cancel.
b. While holding Cancel, press On.
c. When the Check Paper and Check Print Cartridge lights begin to blink simultaneously, release both buttons.
d. Press Cancel again.
e. Press Copies.
f. Press Paper Type.
g. Press Color Start Copy.
h. The alignment page will begin printing. If the alignment page does not print, repeat the button-press sequence in this step.

4. Once the alignment page is printed, place the page face down on the scanner glass and press Scan. The alignment is complete when the On light stops blinking. 5. Reconnect the USB cable.

Region codes for France for a photosmart c3180 all in one


Well I had the exact same problem with a C3180 bought in the USA and I moved to France. I called the HP tech support and after I bought 5 brand new cartridges upon their recommendation we haven't been able to print the 10 tap test page

I recommend that you try doing that before you call them otherwise you will be wasting your time

To print the 10 tap test page you need to press simultaneously CANCEL and START COLOR COPY. I couldn't print the 10 tap test page because the printer will not recognize the cartridges bought in France (START COLOR COPY and START BLACK COPY blinking + E in front of COPIES)

If somebody knows an alternate method to print the 10 tap test page, please share it as this is the blocking point with HP support

Thanks

All lights keep blinking!tried unplugging and reinstalling.Dead?


If the Resume c00121686.jpg light continues to blink and the print cartridge cradle does not move to the right side of the printer, try these solutions:
  • Remove and reinstall the print cartridges. Verify that the print cartridges are in the print cartridge cradle before pushing them forward into position.
  • Verify that no obstruction prevents the print cartridge cradle from moving freely on the rod.
  • Verify that the vinyl tape has been removed from each of the print cartridges.
If the problem persists, contact HP Customer Care.

If both the Check paper, and the Check Cartridge Lights are blinking, this indicates a Carriage Jam. Follow the instructions here to clear this error.

HP 1210 all in one printer does not have a maintenance button to allow me to align cartridges. Prints landscape pages out of alignment; I have tried taking the cartridge out and putting it back but it...


On the printer hold down the CANCEL button then press and hold the ON/RESUME button until the CHECK PAPER and CHECK PRINT CARTRIDGE LIGHT both blink simultaneously.
When both lights are blinking press CANCEL, COPIES, PAPER TYPE, and COLOR START COPY one after the other. All this must be done in under 10 seconds for it to work. Once this sequence of buttons is completed correctly in under ten seconds an alignment page will print.

Priner problems


Issue After you install a print cartridge, or during normal operation, the print cartridge light and one or both of the Start Copy lights begin to blink. Solution NOTE: The procedures below refer to a 'problem' cartridge. The 'problem' cartridgeis identified either by a computer message or by the Start Copy lights. If a computer message indicates a specific cartridge, that is the problem cartridge. If there is no computer message, look at the Start Copy lights - if the Black Start Copy light is blinking, the cartridge on the right is the problem cartridge. If the Color Start Copy light is blinking, the cartridge on the left is the problem cartridge. If both Start Copy lights are blinking and there is no computer message, perform the procedures below on both cartridges. Work through the sections below in order. When the print cartridge light stops blinking, you have solved the problem. Step One: Remove, inspect, and reseat the problem cartridge The print cartridge may not have full electrical contact with the printer. Removing and reinstalling the cartridge may help. NOTE: HP cannot guarantee the quality of remanufactured or refilled cartridges. Make sure the printer is on. Press the Power button if it is not lit. Open the printer cover, then wait until the print cartridge carriage is idle and silent. Press down lightly on the end of the problem cartridge to release it. Slide the cartridge out and inspect it: CAUTION: Do not touch the copper electrical contacts or the ink nozzles. Check the electrical contacts for debris. Make sure all the clear nozzle protective tape has been removed. CAUTION: Do not attempt to remove the copper electrical strip! Look at the number on the print cartridge label and make sure it is compatible with your printer. Compatible print cartridges are listed in the Printer Reference Guide supplied with your printer. If the cartridge is compatible, reinstall it in the printer: Cartridges marked with a triangle go into the left carriage slot. Cartridges marked with a square or pentagon go into the right carriage slot. Step Two: Clean the problem cartridge contacts If the steps have not solved the problem, clean the electrical contacts on the print cartridge and in the carriage in the printer. Gather the following items to clean the cartridge and print carriage: Clean distilled water. Use bottled or filtered water if distilled water is not available. Tap-water can contain contaminants that damage the cartridge. Clean cotton swabs or any soft, lint-free material that will not stick to the cartridges (coffee filters work well) Sheets of paper or a paper towel to rest the cartridges on during cleaning Open the printer cover and wait until the print carriage stops moving. Remove the cartridge and place it on a piece of paper with the nozzle plate facing up. NOTE: Clean the contacts quickly so that the cartridge is not outside of the printer for more than 30 minutes. If the cartridge is outside of the printer for too long, the ink can dry and clog the nozzles. Unplug the printer. Dip a swab in the clean water, and then squeeze it to remove most of the moisture. The swab should be only slightly damp. Clean the print-cartridge contacts. Do not touch the nozzles. Clean the contacts in the print carriage, inside the printer. Either let the cartridge sit for ten minutes to allow the cleaned area to dry, or use a new swab to dry it. Reinstall the cartridge, plug the printer back in, and close the printer cover. Try to print again. If the issue still appears, proceed to the next step. Step Three: Repeat reseating and cleaning steps If the problem is not solved, repeat the reseating and cleaning procedures above. Step Four: Contact HP If the problem has not been solved by the steps above, either the printer or the problem cartridge is defective
