Printer shuts down during middle of printing

I have an HP Deskjet F4180 and it shuts off during print jobs. Sometimes it turns off even without having a print job in the queue. I spent an hour with an HP help desk person checking outlets and finally they sent me a new power cord. Still shuts off. This happened after I installed new ink cartridges, but I have checked them and put them in again in case something was mis-aligned. What next?

The power supply within the printer is shutting down probably due to detecting an overheat issue (make sure the vents at the side of the machine are clear of files and folders etc) If still shutting down the a new power supply will be needed. Have a look at HP.parsurfer site with your CB number at hand (on a label somewhere on the printer). I just tried the site but was locking up (surprise). You may be able to get a part number but as with most deskjets you can't get much and usually ends up with throwing away the printer. Good luck.

SOURCE: i have got a hp

what you need to do is go the the control panel, performance and maintenance, administrative tools, then double click on "services".

scroll down the list to " print spooler. single click on it to highlight, then on the left click "stop"

once it is stopped, again on the left, click start.

This should clear out any print documents that became "stuck" in the print queue.

SOURCE: printer will not cancel print job

Sounds like the printer spool is frozen.

Assuming you're using WinXP and logged in as an administrator (or with admin permissions)

START
Control Panel
Administrative Tools
Services

Locate the "Print Spooler"
Right click on this and choose "restart"

This will restart the print queue and will probably try to print the job again or delete it properly. If it tries to restart, just right click on the printer job and choose cancel again..

You may need to repeat but that should at least get you back up and running with other print jobs again.

My HP PRINTER,DESKJET F4180 is printing faintly even though there is a lot of ink


I presume that you have tried with different cartridges to rule out the possibility of cartridge fault and you are not printing in draft mode.

Clean the electrical contacts on the cartirdges and carriage.

The steel rod, on which the carriage moves, is set too far away from the paper. Open the printer's top cover and loosen the lock screw of the brackets holding the rod by its ends. Rotate these brackets a few degrees to lower the print carriage towards the paper to obtain desired printing. The screws to tightened.

It says E in the small display screen it has and


Turn the printer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Reconnect the AC power.
Turn the printer on.
Start the HP Support Tool software on your computer, and check the ink-levels on the printer -- no ink means no printing.

Do the lights blink in a specific, repeating, pattern?

Have you looked at http://support.hp.com and entered your model-number, and looked at the "common trouble-shooting" suggestions?

Printer connected to computer and all is well but when i click on print it tells me that the document needed to be printed is pending and it just never gets printed


You probably have a print job stuck in the queue. Open Control Panel, then Printers and Faxes. Right click on your printer and click OPEN. Highlight the top entry and open Document menu and choose Cancel. You may need to turn off printer and then unplug it for 15 seconds to clear any faults in printer memory. Plug back in, turn on, then try.

I have a HP Deskjet F4180 AIO. It is printing


If you just replaced the ink cartridges, make sure you've removed the plastic tabs that cover where the ink shoots out. If they are old cartridges, make sure that the nozles haven't dried up. Remove the cartridges and dab a cloth (one you don't mind staining) where the ink shoots out, if all the colours show up, it's clear. If you notice very little colour, or none at all, try dampening the cloth and wiping down the cartridges to promote inkflow through the nozles. Hope this helps.
