Eliminate the noise from the D1660, F2180 HP printers with EC0840001, C084000A errors

The C084000A and C0840001 errors in the D1660 and F2180 HP printers are really common, even more when these printers are out of warranty it means they are old, these mistakes are from factory.

We would recommend to get in contact with the HP support service, also revise if the printer is still in warranty time, with this error printers sound like if they were gun machines, although after this they print well but before printing well these printers make a fierce noise, it can almost be considered as getting broken somehow.

In the following post we will present what really makes the noise and also who it is possible to solve the problem.

Before continuing check if the printer makes a noise hitting against the wall where the cartridges are placed, in that case verify what locates the cartridges and eliminate the error. Since we can identify the error is actually the sound of machine gun before printing proceed with the solution.

How to reset the ink pad in the MP280 Canon

When we have a p07 error in Canon printers and mostly in MP280 Canon printers, it is because a significant amount of pages have been printed to even when having brand new cartridges this ink pads stay completely full.

Another case that uses to happen is that when having an MP280 Canon printer with a ink system installed, if printing too much, the printer presumes that the ink pads are full, the printer gets to identify those data because as it is known, it has a pages counter integrated to identify the amount of pages printed.

The first thing to do is to download the file that works as installer ServiceTool_V1074.rar. The printer has to be turned on and plugged to the computer; the computer has to be turned on as well.

What is the code of the cartridge that my printer is using?

It is very important to actually know what the code of the cartridge is, such as 27 HP black ink cartridge, known throughout Latin America for the number 27 actually has the C8727A code, previously, HP just put the cartridge number and also the necessary code but it was not given a great importance as it is nowadays since another case of HP cartridges with the same number has been presented.

For example the 60 HP cartridge both black and tricolor ink they both have the same number, which makes them a little bit hard to identify when asking for them at the store.
