| p.1 #1 · Curse of the HP B9180 Printer |
I'm still using my original 2007 vintage model of the B9180. And, installation of the drivers for Windows 7 went OK. Print quality is fantastic.
But, sometimes I'm getting incomplete prints,. Also, it sometimes stops dead with an error code of 0405C8FD - which can only be cleared by pulling the power plug. This error code is unknown on the HP website, and everywhere that I can think to look.
I guess that a paper sensor problem might be causing the incomplete prints. Presumeably, the plastic flip-flop 'needle' in the rear roller assembly is the paper sensor (seen from the rear with the back cover removed) - if it is, there seems to be little chance of accessing it, let alone replacing it.
1. Does anyone know what the error code means, or where to find out, please.
2. Is the paper sensor a probable cause of incomplete prints?
The print quality is so good that it is worth trying to fix the problems.
