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?

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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 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!

  • Photosmart c7280 All-in-one Network Issues

    Hi, i was given this printer (Photosmart c7280 All-in-one) by my dad about a year ago it worked flawlessly for quite some time. However a few months ago we had a really bad storm and lost power and ever since then I have been getting error messages and my network radio has not been working at all. I am afraid that it might be fried but if i could have any help troubleshooting it at all that would be greatly appreciated! Also, i was reading some other help forum posts and tried to reset it (# and 6 while powering on) and it printed out a connectivity status report by itself. It says "The wireless network interface (Wifi0) is not functioning properly. This may be a problem with the printing device hardware." Again im afraid it might never work again but any help is appreciated! Thanks

    Since you have tried performing reset and printer status shows as WIFI ICU not working, you can try connecting printer with an ethernet cable and use as a network printer.

  • 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...

  • HP Photosmart C7280 All-in-One , Mac 0SX 10.6.8 Error message:' pump motor stalled

    HP Photosmart C7280 All-in-One , Mac 0SX 10.6.8 Error message:' pump motor stalled' press (I don't recognise the icon!)
    What is the button & what is the solution?

    Hello, I don't have a floor model of that printer available and the manual for this printer does not mention the pump motor. But I would first try removing and reseating all the cartridges in the printer and power cycle the machine. If you are still getting that error message I would do a hard reset that involves removing the cartridges. No user settings are lost with a hard reset and it is a very common tool used to try to resolve a hardware issue with a printer.  To do a hard reset with removing the cartridges: 
    While the machine is powered on take all the cartridges out of the machine. Close cartridge access.
    Then pull the power cord out of the rear of the Product, and then unplug the cord from the wall outlet.
    Wait at least 20 seconds.
    Plug power cord back into wall outlet and then back in the rear of the printer. It should power on by itself but after 10 seconds or so use the power button to turn machine on
    Wait for printer to go through start up process and as it recognizes the cartridges are missing (the display panel will inform of missing cartridges) put them back in their slots.

  • I have a hp photosmart c7280 all in one and i get a message that says "pump motor stalled.

    I have an HP photosmart C7280 All in One and I get a message that says pump motor stalled.  I have done everything from resetting and turning it off.  I have checked to make sure that there is not any paper jam.  It makes a clicking sound after it has been reset and then the message "pump motor stalled" pops up.  Any suggestions or should I just toss and buy new???  It is only three years old but it is out of warranty.

    You might try the suggestions in this post.  There is also a post here that reports success.

  • HP Photosmart Premium All-in-one c310a - How to print in black and white

    I want to print a color pdf file in b&w on my HP Photosmart Premium All-in-one c310a printer. When I go to "features" -> color options -> grayscale -> in the drop down box, there is only one choice - "high quality". There's no "black ink only" choice as I have seen in forums on similar printers.

    If you have the full feature drivers installed for this printer and there isn't a Black Ink Only option under Print in Grayscale, then this printer lacks the feature.  Typically the Black Ink Only options follows the drivers for some deskjets and most officejets, because of the office environments they are intended for.  Where as Photosmart printers are more aimed at printing photos.

  • HP Photosmart 2610 All-in-One, Manual Two-Sided Printing, HP e-mail support Ticket no: 8028153835

    HP e-mail support, Ticket no: 8028153835 
    I purchased my HP Photosmart 2610 all-in-one printer in 2005. It was previously installed on a HP Laptop, Windows XP, and all the features worked.
    It is now on a PC running Windows Vista Ultimate 32. When I tried installing the printer software CD, it wouldn't load because of the Vista OS. I then loaded the HP Photosmart 2600 series full feature printer driver (Vista OS compatible) from the following HP website link:
    Now I cannot get the Printing Preferences to allow Manually Duplexing (two-sided) printing. This option was available on the original printer software.
    I've tried the solutions on: HP Image Zone Help / Two-Sided Prints which indicate:  Click the Finishing tab / In the Document options area / select the Print on both sides check box (this box is not available).
    When I run the printer from the Control Panel as Administrator, the printer Properties / Device Settings show Manual Duplexing: Enabled.  When I go to the printer Properties / Advanced / Printing Defaults, neither the Finishing / Print On Both Sides check box is available nor will the Printing Shortcuts tabs allow the Print On Both Sides option to appear (only shows Print On Both Sides: Off).
    HP e-mail support told me to install this patch to correct the problem:
    When I try installing the patch, it won't load because it wants the original CD software. So I'm back to my initial problem of trying to load the original printer software that won't load because the CD is for Windows XP OS. I am at an impasse between the Software CD that I have, and what is available on the HP website.

    Also, if it were, do you download the driver?
    The driver is supplied through Windows Update.  Go to the Devices and Printers folder, Add a Printer, then select Windows Update.  It will take a few minutes to update the list, then the Deskjet 6500 series will be a choice under HP (not Hewlett-Packard).
