    Screen blank. Power button steady red. No response by other buttons. Unplugged unit and removed ink cartridges (manually, as ink cartrideges do not slide over automatically when power is on. Powered up. Light on, no changes. Have disconnected from tower.

My c4180 printer wont print the pages properley. It comes out as a lot of gobbledegook!

Switch off the printer, detach USB cable, cancel all pending jobs in system, once its cleared, check for the proper drivers installed? if not install it, connect printer, try for print..

Question: I have an HP C4180 all-in-one printer. Are the black ink HP cartridges 92 and 98 interchangeable? Can I use both of them in this printer?

According to this site:, the hp site for buying printer accessories, it appears that the 92 is not compatible with the C4180. Type the part number into the search box, and you will see a list of various cartridges you can buy for this particular machine. 92 is not in that list.

My printer shows error C4EB8401 when switched on and wont print?

Verify that the unit is switched on. Disconnect the USB/Ethernet cable from the All-in-One and also disconnect power cable from All-in-One and also from wall outlet.
Wait 30 seconds.
Plug in the power cable to All-in-One and also to wall outlet.
[Now turn On the printer and check the functionality

if the above does not rectify it

Reset the All-in-One to the factory default settings by using these instructions:

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.
3. Now turn On the printer.

is this is still not working then it is due to the print cartridge cradle packing up.
and you might have to face buying a new one, but I hope the above will help

My C4180 All-in-one was working but now it will not switch on. The red attention light came on and then it went complrtely dead

Hi Flemingjudy -
Sorry to hear about your defective printer. I am afraid that your printer will need to be serviced or replaced to get it working again. I am hoping that your printer is still under warranty so that it won't cost you anything to get it fixed (a lot of times they have a 1 year warranty)

Here is the web address with information on various ways to contact HP to get the ball rolling

Hope that helps,

Take care,
