Take alook at the Scan lamp ( the light that goes across the document you are making a copy of, does it hesitate or make a sound? if you can open it and apply some WD40 on a tissue and rub the tissue on the silver bar, if it doesn't have a bar but a black belt with teeth, it may be the motor or something preventing it from running smoothly.

F2180 orange printer light keeps flashing. New ink cartridges installed. Have tried troubleshooting several times, no errors detected ?

sometime the contacts on the cartridge and the pins in the cartridge holder get a bit of dirt on them and this can cause it to fail.
is it coming up with any errors?

My HP F280 printer stops in the middle of printing... I looked at the message, sometime it is "ink cartridge empty" and sometimes "paper Jam". I changed my printer with another F2180,...

first are you using genuine cartridges. also check that you are installing correctly eg removing the pull tab that some need to have removed. not saying you haven't but have worked in a office for number of years and it can be something that simple. also refer to the help people at HP printing they are a good source to trouble shoot their products. they have case files and can quickly work out whats happening a advise how to fix.

Issue: Print Cartridge light is blinking

NOTE: In addition to the blinking light, an "E" might appear in the Copies area.


Close the print cartridge door.


The print cartridge door is open.

Printer output has shadows, blurring, streaks, lines, poor color

Seem like blocked hole(s) on the color print head...
Most likely if there is a deep clean option then do it (may need a few times to unblock a hole or never).
Also get the printer physically cleaned up if you can see dusts inside (vrtical lines on color bars).
