Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Can you please help? I am experiencing a similar problem with the "improper shutdown..." message on my C6180. At first I could get it to print by turning it off and back on. Now, however, it just continues to cycle through showing the message and then initializing, showing the message and initializing, etc. I have tried unplugging & replugging the power cord and turning off/on using the power button. I tried "shupper's" fix - it did not work for me. I did not try "Techie Roy's" fix because II do not have a "#" key, so did not quite follow his advice??? Thanks very much

This same error started occurring on my printer and eventually it would constantly power on and off. 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 also fixed the ink system failures the printer was having. A similar fix may apply to other printers.

Power turned on to make copies, while printer is warming up, printer shuts down with error message about improper shutdown and comes back on and repeats the above sequence continiously.


My C6180 had the 0xc19a0035 Ink System Failure code, eventually the printer would power on and off every 15-20 seconds - continuously. 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).

Model c6180 printer gives improper shutdown error


The printer is not getting enough power. When you get this error message it means the printer is being turned off by unplugging the power cord. In this case it maybe that the printer is not getting enough power due to being in a surge protector or perhaps the power module is no longer holding power correctly.
First step is to disconnect printer from any power strip, surge protector, or extension cords and plug in so directly to the wall. If printer still will not stop looping cycle you may need to contact hp for a new power module.

Impropershutdown


Press 6 and # while disconnecting the power cord (wait a little bit) and connecting it again. When the display is turned on again you can release the buttons.

After this reset you need to enter language, location and any wireless settings etc.

Same problem, hp c6150 turns on and shuts down in infinite loop.


In visiting with HP Support Personnel, this issue is most likely caused by a faulty power source. I have the same issue with our C6150 and they recommended that I look at replacing power cable. I am currently trying to find a new power cable.
