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.

Led lite on power module turns on but when you plug the module into printer it goes off and printer won't tunr on hp c6180


Check the logic board for failed capacitors. My C6180 started showing ink system failure messages and eventually would power on and off every 20 seconds or so. This was caused by a few failed capacitors on the logic board. i the attached picture of my C6180 logic board you can see the bulging tops of 2 capacitors (indicating failure). I replaced 4 capacitors (cost ~ 60cents) and the pinter is working great. If you are not comfortable doing a little soldering, you will have to find some help (took my 25 minutes).

How do i reboot my hp c6180 printer


This seems to works for me and doesn't appear on the HP support site nor in the manual...

1. Power down the printer (use on/off button) and remove power cable. Wait 2 minutes.
2. Hold down Help and OK buttons together while plugging in the power cable.
3. I held the buttons for around 5 seconds and when I released them, the printer seemed to go back to a hard reset - all sorted!

Hope this helps!

HP C6180 won't turn on


To begin with, try resetting it by following these instructions. If you are using a usb cable, unplug it as well and wait at least a few minutes before reconnecting.
See also here and here. (different) It's possible you have too many devices plugged in and the printer is starved for power, or it's somehow grounding out.
If that doesn't solve the problem, you may find alternative solutions here. or here.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
