HP B9180: Is this it?
« on: August 27, 2017, 06:44:17 PM »

Hi, everyone:

Well finally one thing led to another and now my B9180 has the dreaded "service stall."  I have tried shutting off/re-powering, general cleaning up under the hood, wiping off the carriage rod and re-greasing.  All it does is make a grinding noise trying to get the motor moving the head but nothing happens.  Not sure what more I can do, not being able to find any specific reported remedy to this problem that was prevalent during the early days of this printer.

Has anyone been able to revive their B9180 from this error.  Or should I finally say goodbye and start considering for a replacement (dreading that thought.)  Any help will be appreciated. 

Thanks.

I have no remedy, but remembering this thread..
http://forum.luminous-landscape.com/index.php?topic=114989.msg949252;topicseen#top

..I assume that you probably tried the "deep reset" with removing all cartridges AND printheads, don't you?

And besides I once had a sort of headcrash, tearing this sort of flexible electric-circuit tape apart, which surrounds the nozzle row of the heads.

I don't have any idea which wasn't been discussed in other threads yet.
But one question: Is there any further message from the printer except "service stall"?

Thanks, Martin.  I had done the ink removal but not the head removal.  Tried them both together again just now.  No go.

I remember your thread.  Were you ever able to fix your problem ultimately or did you junk it?

There are no additional messages after the "Service Stall.....Press OK to continue."  When I press OK, it gives it an another try and it's back to the original error.  It will do that endlessly if I continue to hit OK.

Hi Niranjan, the B9180 I haven't fixed, though I got no "service stall" - the printer kept throwing out blank paper and calling for another sheet...
My second B8850 (almost the same) is doing fine.

Regarding the headcrash: Did you take a close look at the nozzle plates, especially at the electronic "bands", leading from the plate up to the top? (last image link)

The heads all look fine, no tears anywhere.  They were all in "fair" or "good" condition as well before this started.  From what I can tell from the various forums, this might be the kiss of death for my printer.  Looking to buy a new one now.  It was good while it lasted....oh, well.
