Hi, Louise, I fear you may have a faulty main board or similar?

above is your user manual below is your service and repair manual to download.

When this type of thing happens, one should try a factory reset, however if this doesn't work, and troubleshooting doesn't produce any answers, then most likely the problem is the circuit board.
So, it is nearly always my professional opinion that one should always get a "Quote" from the manufacturers recommended service center, HP in your case, please contact a local or head office and ask for a referral to an Authorised service center. I cannot stress how important that last point is. It is even worth the cost of shipping. You see an authorised service agent, will have trained staff, trained on their brand, also they have first hand access to parts, original parts. This will actually save you money and ensure you can actually get it back fixed. Of course asking for a "Quote" also gives on the option of repair or replace. Often my clients,do not go through with repair, unless it is moderate, but in some of the more costly jobs they see it, as do i, that a replacement, with a warranty, is a better option. As an aside here, one could then tear the printer down, and sell the Known Good bits. You'd be surprised who needs parts, i myself often must by from third party sources to effect a repair. So money could be recouped, somewhat,and help out someone else.

4. Scroll down using the arrow keys and go to fax log
5. Press Ok on fax log

What is printhead failure on my HP Photosmart C6100 series printer? and how can I fix it permanently?


The print-head is the "heart" of an ink-jet printer -- it pulls the ink from the ink-cartridges, and sprays the ink onto the paper.

If the "manufacturer-warranty" has expired, it is time to buy a new unit, and to responsibly recycle the old unit.

I called HP for troubleshooting assistance. My printer HP All- in-One is only 2 years old. They were very nice to run through a series of steps with me...only to tell me that "It is broken" and I will need to buy a new one. So that's my solution for today....Which leads me to the next question...Do I get another HP or something else??

HP C6100 Wireless printer has stopped working


The HP C6100 series has had some ip setting issues. One day my printer didn't print. I checked the ip settings on the printer and got some 648.154.1.654 address. I had no clue where this ip number came from, because my router's ip is 192.168.0.1. I went into the settings of my printer and set my ip settings manual. Then I went into the router settings and reserved the ip setting I previously setting on the printer to the printers MAC address. I also set static ip address for each computer on my network. This network response issue started about one year after I purchased the printer. I still lose connection every once in a while, but rebooting the router reconnects the printer and everything sitting in the que to print starts to print. To stablize the issue: upgrade router firmware, set static ip address on your network devices, reserve those ip address in your router, , if all else fails reboot router.

Please clean the print heads :

1. Unplug the power cable from printer when the printer is powered on.

2. Press and hold OK and HELP buttons while plugging in the power cord.

If issue stil persists. Contact HP.
