Never used HP c6100 keeps cycling. Starts as soon as it is plugged in without touching the power button.


Hi,
Try unplugging all the cables from the printer(power and data cables).
Press and hold the power button for 10sec(it will do nothing since its not plugged in. We are trying to remove the static electricity from the machince, if there is any).
Repeat the same process once more.

Now plug back all the needed cables and check.

"Improper Shutdown" - Printer keeps turning on and off.


Got the same problem following a message "Printer ink failure" code 0xc19a0035. Instructions say to shut down using button on/off. But printer refused to shutdown. After 30 minutes, I disconnected power cable. Removed cartridges. Reloaded cartridges. Reconnected power cable and got "Improper shutdown" message with continuous cycle. Solution: 1. While the printer is still turned on, unplug all cables and cords at the back of the printer.
2. Unplug the power cord also from the wall outlet...
3. Wait for two minutes.
4. Reconnect power cord to the wall outlet first.
5. Press and hold the pound (#) and six (6) buttons.
6. While holding down the two buttons, reconnect the power cord to the back of the printer and after two seconds, release pound and six buttons.
7. Turn on the printer if it turns off... and it's fixed.
8. Be patient to let printer run its tests.
