SOURCE: i need help installingmy hp c5180 onto my new computer but i dont have the cd

If you go to the HP website, near the top of the main page you'll see a link to support & drivers. Once there, select the box for drivers and downloads, then in the next step put the model number for your printer (c5180). From there it will ask you whjich operating system, select the one on the laptop you want to install the printer on (xp, vista, etc). It will then direct you to the software & driver options available for your printer.

HP PHOTOSMART C5180 ; 2 years old - around 10 seconds after turning the power on, the small screen changes to vertical bands of the rainbow colours. The printer freezes at this point and cannot be used. Is...

I have a C6180 (about same age) that had a logic board problem - several capacitors had failed. The result was that after 10-15 seconds the printer would power off then on again. You might have a look at the logic board to see if there are any capacitors where the top is puffed up even the slightest amount - if yes then this is likely your problem, see image below. The parts are usually really inexpensive (less than $1.00!) - to replace them you need to do some soldering (or find someone who will). my repair took 25 minutes and it working great (no more ink system failure messages or power on-off constantly).bcae16b.jpg

What to do when my HP printer keeps rebooting itself. It turns on and off, on and off, on and off, etc...

(I have posted this on other similar questions) Some of the electrical components used to build the logic board in the Cxxxx all in one printers about 2-3 years ago is failing. In my C6180 (with the same problem), there were 4 capacitors (see green cylinder shaped component in the attached - the bulge in the top indicates failure, and that this is the likely the cause) that I replaced (cost was about 60 cents!). If you are not comfortable doing some soldering yourself, you will have to find some help - it took me about 25 min to do the repair myself. Printer works great now. Probably not what you wanted to hear, but I hope it is useful.aba0195.jpg

The hp Photosmart C5180 Printer I use at work keeps restarting itself over and over in a continuous cycle. How do I get it out of this ? I have tried unplugging it ?

I read over the FAQ's and Troubleshooting on's website and couldn't find a reference to a 'restsart' condition over and over in a continuous cycle.

I was going to suggest unplugging it, but that you already tried.

I think there's something wrong with the board, but to replace would exceed the cost of buying a new printer. And I'm not sure if would even service it.

Contact and find your local partner using the following:

My HP printer C5188 does not turn on. There is no display and shows orange exclamation sign only permanently. Power buttom also does not light up.

Unplug and disconnect the printer from the computer. Wait about 30 seconds, then plug power into the printer. See if you can turn on the printer and run the self-test. If no go, try pluging printer directly into an outlet (Bypass and Power supply or power strip) see if any change.
If the printer will not run the self-test stand alone, then it likely has an internal failure, clear any paper paths, check to make sure printer is properly closed and AC adapter properly connected. If no change, and under warranty, I'd see about getting the printer serviced.
If printer will self-test stand alone, then try these HP steps:

Black ink not working on HP C5180 Photosmart

Try a hard restart, which simply means unplugging the power cord of the printer, and replugging it after one minute has passed. If that does not work, then rerun the CD used to install the printer. Both techniques reprogram the electronics, to a certain extent.
You can also visit the HP website, to see what solutions are being offered for various printer problems. They probably have a number to call, in case you need to talk to a technician.
Hope these suggestions help you out.
