Question about HP Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

Installing a new HPC8180 printer. followed instructions through setting langauge and country etc until screen "Initialization begining". Screen notes "one time ink system initialization beginning. Do not turn printer off or disconnect power during process. Press OK to continue". I have pressed OK, and it has sat doing nothing obvious for the last 50 minutes. Is this normal? What do I do?

    The online HP guide has a different sequence for starting up the printer than those that came with the printer: the on line guide worked. Additionally, when running the software disk, it would not complete the install from the normal 'run' command, but did so successfully when the install was sarted from the 'Add Printer' command! It makes no sense to me, but hey, it now all works.

CM 1015mfp Colors are not aligned. when printing the characters looks like 3D.


If nothing else works, you may have to manually calibrate the dials inside the mirror box. This video link will show you how. http://youtu.be/R1DIko0a1MA
This may be necessary if the printer got bumped really hard.

Whenever I print my document, it doesn't exist the document I want to print but many strange symbols appear on the printed paper, how can I solve this problem?


Cold reset
A cold reset changes most system parameters in NVRAM to the factory defaults. However, unlike NVRAM inititialization, a cold reset does not reset the page count, the paper tray sizes, language, or formatter number.
Note If an HP Jetdirect card is installed, remove it before performing a cold reset. Otherwise, the procedure will also reset all the HP Jetdirect settings as well as the printer settings.
To perform a cold reset
1 Turn the printer off.
2 Press and hold down the GO button.
3 Turn the printer on, and continue to hold the GO button for at least 5 seconds, but not longer than 15 seconds. During this process, the Attention LED will turn on.
4 Release the GO button.
Note If both the Attention and the Ready LEDs turn on before you release the GO button, you must start the procedure again with step 1.
5 The printer's LEDs will begin cycling. The cold-reset process will
run until completion, and the printer will return to the ready state.

If not work, tris this

NVRAM initialization

CAUTION Only perform the following procedure if absolutely necessary.
Performing an NVRAM initialization resets some parameters that cannot be restored later.
NVRAM initialization sets all default variables stored in NVRAM back to factory default values or to a default ROM value, depending on the variable. It also performs a system reset.

NVRAM initialization resets the following:

  • all menu settings to factory default values
  • factory settings such as formatter number, page counts, and factory paper settings
To perform NVRAM initialization
1 Turn the printer off.
2 Press and hold down the GO button.
3 Turn the printer on, and continue to hold the GO button for at least 20 seconds. During this process, the GO button, Attention, and Ready LEDs will each turn on.
4 Release the GO button.
5 The printer LEDs will begin cycling. The NVRAM-unit process will run until the printer is in the ready state.

HPC8180 Did not follow intitial instructions and now have ink system failure. Hp unable to help sent me brand new ink cartridges, I tried to reset with no success. Any help?


Follow the instructions on this web page http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/hp-photosmart-ink-system-failure-1/ to prime ink through the lines and hopefully clear the error. I don't know why HP sent you new ink cartridges when it should be obvious to them that the cartridges are not the problem.
