Hi, I have a HP Photosmart C5180 printer, and a few weeks ago it started having issues. It wouldn't print at first, so we would turn it off and then back on, and then it would print. Then after a few days, that quick fix didn't work and it wouldn't print at all.

I tried the suggestions from the troubleshooting manual - disconnect from pc, power, etc., then reconnect again, and that didn't work. I removed it from the pc and just plugged it in separately to a different outlet to see if it would work on it's own, and it doesn't.

I have to remove the power cord entirely to turn it off. When I leave it plugged in, the printer just continuously tries to restart itself without success, then shuts down for a couple seconds, then tries to turn on again. I would try a different power adapter/cord, but it's not a traditional cord that I can just use a spare one to connect to the printer.

It would cost more to service this printer than it's worth, so I just wanted to check here and see if anyone had similar issues or know of a fix. Thanks for any feedback!

Mary
