  • HP Photosmart C7280 All in One installati​on problems with windows 8.1

    I have a HP Photosmart C7280 All in One printer which was working fine on wifi with Windows 8. A few days ago I got the prompt to upgrade to 8.1. Following this the printer would not work at all, and I got prompt/warning message to re-install the printer software. So I went to the control panel and removed all the old HP software, and tried to re-install the latest one from the HP site...to no avail.
    I have tried doing this a number of ways - manual download, downloading the HP software that determines what software is required, then downloads it for you....
    It seems to start unpacking ok, but then gets stuck on 'Checking System' and never progresses to do anything else. Help!

    Please let me know if you encounter any difficulties while doing the above. If you do, please let me know at what step things went awry and what any error messages said. Please also include how you have the printer connected (USB cable, ethernet, or wireless). Thank you.

  • Hp Photosmart C7280 all-in-one will not work with Snow leopard

    My nephew just installed Snow Leopard on my IMAC 2008. I cannot get to printer to work. I have tried uninstalling the HP software and reinstalling. I have updated the software thru Apple updates. It still won't print or scan any documents.

    I would recommend these instructions (they don't hurt anything), however, different circumstances require different solutions.:
    Try deleting the printer .plist files and see if that helps.
    Go to ~/Library/Preferences and move the following files to the Trash.
    com.apple.print.custompresets(your printer manufacture name).plist
    Restart your Mac.

  • My HP Photosmart C7280 All-in-One printer won´t print out documents, just pictures ...

    My HP Photosmart C7280 All-in-One printer won´t print out documents, just pictures. I´ve used the printer, since it was new on the marked, and it has worked perfectly until a few weeks back. There is no problem printing out pictures, but only blank pages comes out when I´m printing out documents. Regardless if it is Word, Excel etc.
    I´ve never used anything else than original cartridges, and the printer is used on Mac OS X 10.7.4. I´ve tried to reinstall the printer several times without any success.
    Can anyone help me?

  • Since I installed Mountain Lion operating system, I cannot print.  I have a HP Photosmart C7280 All-in-one printer.  I get a message when I try to update the software "Server not available  The software update service is currently not available."

    After installing Mountain Lion, my printer doesn't work.  I know it is connected as it shows up,  The message is:
    "The printer software was installed incorrectly.  Please reinstall the software for this printer or conact the anufacturer for assistance."
    I used the disk that came with the printer as when I go to the HP site, it tells me that Apple has the drivers needed.  I unistalled the printer and reistalled.  Previously, I just went to the HP website an everything worked fine for drivers, program, etc.  I never had to use the CD that came with the printer.  My printer is:  HP Photosmart C7280 All-in-one, it is wireless, but I even took the computer and plugged it into the printer to make sure that everything was connected.  Can someone please help me to get this working,
    Thank you,

  • Photosmart C7280 All-In-One Wireless Not working

    My wireless printing was working fine with my Photosmart C7280 for about at least a year or more and now recently the wireless side stopped working. My Apple devices (both iPad and Macbook) stopped recognizing my printer. Even when I tried to add via IP address, it would not take.
    My printer is working fine when hard wired thru both my PC and Macbook via USB.
    I tried resetting my printer network settings by restoring to Network Defaults and adding back in my SSID and Password. It shows it is connected. But when I run a Wireless Network Test Page from within the printer settings, it shows everything passed and signal strength is excellent. However, the last diagnosis in the summary shows "No" to "Other networks detected matching your network name (SSID)"  so I am wondering if my printer is actually connecting properly to my network? Since I have other wireless devices connected to the same SSID.
    I turned both the printer and other devices off and then on to reboot. I turned the wireless radio within the printer settings off and on again.
    Another thing I'd like to mention is that before I deleted the printers in my Apple devices, they still showed my Photosmart 7200 series, but stated they were inactive.
    Also when I was able to get into my Verizon FIOS Broadband Router Management software thru my browser, it showed all my wireless devices, but it also showed my Photosmart as being inactive wirelessly, where the other devices that were turned on at the time were showing connected.
    I am wondering if it may have been a recent Apple update that may have caused this problem? However the Verizon Fios also showed the printer as being inactive so I am guessing not?
    I have been working on this issue for days and spent a ton of time thus far, so any suggestions to resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.
    I am about mid-level in technical understanding. So please spell out answers to any resolution steps very simply in your reply.

    Honestly, ISP-issued routers are very problematic.  Restart the Westell by pulling its power cord momentarily just before trying to connect the printer.

  • My Photosmart C7280 All-in-one Printer no longer turns on properly. Msg B83FCB56 What do I do?

    My C7280 no longer turns on properly.  It only displays a message - B83FCB56 - on the message screen and the light below the camera icon in the lower right corner flashes rapidly.  No combination of key pressing bring forth any response.  Holding down the power=on button does not turn the machine off.
    Is there anything  can do to get the scanner/printer working?
    before this behavior the machine would, on occasion, go into a mode where all the lights on the displays would flash simultaniously.  Pushing the power button would cure this, but often the printer would only print a partial page before failing in the fleahing-light mode
    Any ideas?

  • HP Photosmart c7280 All-in-One Mac 10.7.1 (Lion) the "Two-Sided​" option is grayed and cannot use?

    I have a HP Photosmart c7280 All-in-One printer and a Macbook Air that runs the Lion operating system (10.7.1). 
    I am trying and needing to print via the "Two-sided" option that appears under the "Layout" pull down tab option, however, the "Two-Sided" option appears to be greyed out as if you are not allowed to use it.  I am sure that that is not the case I just do not know how to unlock it yet I guess?
    I just made sure that all of my software was up to date and it is currently.
    Everything else is perfect about the printer and I have been using it for years, so thank you!  I would just like to know what on earth I am doing wrong or need to do to unlock that "Two-sided" setting, so I do not waste a ton of paper!  Thanks again!

    Hi DAP413,
    In order to actiate the Two-Sided duplex accessory, you have to enable it from the printer settings:
    -Enter System Preferences > Print & Scan
    -Double click the Photosmart printer name to open the Print Queue.
    -Click the Printer Setup button
    -Click the Driver tab and make sure the Two-Sided Printing Accessory option is checked.

  • Photosmart C7280 All-In-One & feed other than plain paper

    I have a HP Photosmart C7280 All-In-One printer. This printer is supposed to be a photo printer however the paper feeder does not accept any paper other than plain paper. i have purchased some a4 heat transfer paper but the paper feeder does not pick it up. there ae options in the print settings to change the type and thickness of the paper being used but it seems useless. and there is no manual paper feeder so it renders this printer a basic plain paper printer which is to what it is advertised to be. it is part of my business that i am able to print on paper that is the thickess of glossy photo paper and cards for invitations which is certainly why i purchased this model. Any assistanve ou can provide would be greatly apprecited. thanks.

    Sorry you are having this problem. I have  a C7280 and have printed from main paper tray on thick card-stock paper, photo pape, heavy greeting card stock and iron on transfer paper without any problem . I did not have to change any settings except the printing type (I normally use fast economical printing) and paper type (if appropriate) on the printer document properties page and printing shortcuts tab.I think you need to get on the live chat with a technician because you should not be having this problem. I have had good experiences with live chat.
    The smaller photo paper tray works fine for me too with the special sized photo paper.
    This may not help much but it shows the paper handling specs...

  • The fax function on my c7280 all-in-one printer ceased working since installing windows 8....?

    Product: hp photosmart c7280 all-in-one printer,fax, copier,scanner. I recently bought a new desktop (lenovo) with windows 8 pre installed. My printer prints, scans and copies but now refuses to fax. The compatibility centre for windows 8.1 tells me that my printer is compatible with the new os and na action is required...Any suggestions??? Tks

    Hello there! Welcome to the forums @francojuve ,
    I read about how you can no longer fax after upgrading to Windows 8. I have a couple of my own suggestion that might help!
    1. Uninstall the Printer Software
    2. Restart the PC
    3. Reinstall the driver for Windows 8 here: HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers
    Also, try the troubleshooting steps from this guide: Cannot Send or Receive Faxes
    If the troubleshooting does not help resolve your issue, I would then suggest calling HP's Technical Support to see about further options for you, such as a replacement or trade in. If you are calling within North America, the number is 1-800-474-6836 and if you are calling outside of the US/Canada region,: click here.

  • HP Photosmart C7280 All-in-one problem printing. Ink System Failure has failed unable to copy--

    I'm having a problem printing on my HP Photosmart C7280 All-In-One. The following message is what came up on the printer screen: Ink System Failure has failed unable to copy, receive faxes or print. Refer to printer documentation Error O.cl9a0007.
    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    View Solution.

    Hey Spider! First off welcome to the forum.
    I would recommend removing all the ink cartridges, unplugging the USB cable from the computer that connects to the printer, and then shutting the printer off completely by removing the power cord. Then restart your computer. Turn the printer back on but leave it disconnected from the computer. After it has finished its power on cycle go ahead and insert the ink cartridges back into the printer and be sure to seat them properly.
    After you have all the cartridges back in the printer properly then connect it to the computer. See if this resolves the issue. If not post back with any findings.
