Question about HP Photosmart C7180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

HP photosmart C7180 all in one not printing properly.

When I try to print info from my computer to the printer all I get is broken black bands of ink. When printing directly form the printer, making a copy or scaning it works fine it is just when I try to print a bank statement or directions from mapquest or other items then I get the black bands.
Thanks Diana

Hi,

As explained by you it seems to be an issue with the printer drivers.you can follow the following steps .

steps ...

1. Open a Command Prompt window

key the commands
net stop spooler

2. In the run (Start Search for Vista) type : c:/windows/system32/spool/drivers…look for w32x86 folder.

3. Inside w32x86, there will be folders with the names 2 and 3 .
delete all of the files and sub-folders in each of the 2 and 3 folders, but not the folders themselves.

4 Start > run > type > regedit .
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers
There might be two entries names Version-2 and Version-3 under drivers: click the plus sign against them and remove everything under them.

4. In the run (Start Search for Vista) type : c:/windows/system32/spool/printers: delete any files there.

5. Open a Command Prompt window
key the commands
1. sc config spooler depend= RPCSS
2. net start spooler

Then follow these >>>>

> browse the disc n go to folder util > ccc > there you wud find some uninstall files > run uninstall _L1.bat.

make sure the printer should be unplugged while you perform the steps .

> then insert the disc and click on add a device .
follow the instructions and connect the us cable when prompted .
Hope this helps .
Take care

HP Photosmart C7180 printer with clogged print head.


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent blocked print head nozzles. You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required. Also try - Removing the print head, run it under hot water for 2 mins, then let soak for 10 min. then used a can of compressed air to dry thoroughly. It may fix the blocked nozzles.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

HP C7180 has message INK Thresholds Exceeded Do Not ship in its current condition


Sad to say I know how to fix this.
1. Power up the printer
2. set printer's date to the current day.
3. On the keypad press the * and # keys together
Now press one at a time 1,2,3 for the code
"screen stould display a white backround with 2 lines of info"
4. remove all the print cartridges
5. Press the >> arrow button twice until "reset menu" is found
6. Press OK
7. Select Partially full reset Press ok
( the printer will take almost to minutes before it powers down)
8. Power up the printer and follow the steps.
reinstall ink ect......

I don't know why this happens but I sure a lot of printers are in the trash because of this. If you print out a SELF TEST REPORT the
dates on the age of the ink Cartridges are likely out of life range.
Planned obsolescence by HP can be found all over the web. This could be one of those.

How do I manually clean my HP C7180 printer print head. The black ink prints with horizontal lines through it and is also very faint in colour. I have carried out print head cleans and alignments through...


By manual you mean that it needs windows to clean it right? (you cannot physically clean it yourself) Go to your printers, right click and in properties somewhere you should find "clean heads" somewhere. Try print test after. Should be good.

Photo,s from printer come out greenish,it,s a HP c7180 photosmart !! self test diagnostic shows white stripes in Magenta ?heads have been cleaned


Don't have a solution, but a similar problem and maybe a work around. My prints on glossy paper come out with a strong red tinge if glossy paper is specified. Seems to work all right if plain paper is specified with glossy paper in tray. Was on chat and email and phone support with HP for about two days. Went through all tests and resets with them. No solution from them except an offer of a refurbished Model 309 for $200. It was on sale at Costco for $169 that same day. I didn't buy it as it is missing features on the C7180.

Note the extended self test shows the light magenta ink is not printing - but it does use ink and the ink drop counter shows it is using ink.

Try specifying plain paper when you print on glossy. Maybe our problems are related?

Black ink not working


Print out a test print to see what comes out. If the printer is printing the black and colour blocks then the printer should be OK. If not then check the black and colour inks to make sure they are OK and remove each of the cartridges and reinstall them. Then run a full cleaning cycle and reprint the test sheet. Keep doing this until all the inks are printing OK. Then run an alignment test making sure that there is plain white paper in the paper tray and adjust the printer as necessary.
