Question about HP Photosmart 3310 Printer
Ink system has failed. Unable to copy, receive
faxes or print. Refer to
Turn power off, then on again.
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 . This
also fixed the ink system failures (0xc1....) the was having.
here is a picture with how they should look ..
Also on this location you will find a step by step ..slide show with pictures on how to dismantle the printer..and where to look for ..
If you want you can just change the logic board if you want ..but I dont think it will be that cheap to worth ..
If you do not find the capacitors blown ..The error may have other causes..and you should clean the ink system ...and make a reset ..
Step 1: Power Drain
STEP 2: - NVM RESET.
