SOURCE: HP Photosmart C6180 turns off and on repeatedly

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 fix stopped my printer from power cycling and also fixed the ink system failures the Printer was having.74b7f9c.jpg
I ordered parts from mouser.com, but DigiKey.com may have better prices. I ordered 3 of these and 1 of these

How can i fix my C6180 HP photosmart computer with msg of improper shutdown from wall switch


Try what they call a hard boot. In other words completely power down ththe printer by either removing the power cord or shutting down via the power button. If this does not work try to enter the menu and clear the arror code manually. Hope this helps.

Just unplug it from the wall. Then open the flap and look for what might have caused the warning - usually it's paper block - and remove it.

HP C6180 boot - init loop / power on-off loop


The Formatter board (main logic board) is faulty. You need to take the printer in for repairs to HP, in my experience though it usually works out better to replace the printer.

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.
