After installing printersoftware for the HP Photosmart c 5280 from the CD and from the internet and connecting correctly the USB cable Windows doesn't recognise the C5280 and the printer is listed as unknown hardware.
Several trials and renewed installation by the book do not solve the problem.

If you ahve teh software installed, right click the icon and select the properties option then locate the tab that has the option to run in compatibility mode. Set the software to run in Windows XP or Vista compatibility. If it is stopping the installation, right click the installation file and tell it to run in compatibility mode with a previous version of windows to install.

Won't print anything on line


hi , this problem usually occurs when a user is having internet explorer 8 and hp smart web printing is not installed or if you are using windows xp then the service pack is not updated
so the best solution would be to use internet explorer 7 and install hp smart web printing from cd
or to down load firefox and print through it
if you have windows xp then you can update the service pack 3

5280 install


Hey Follow the link below: its an FAQ on installing the printer and downloading software and drivers. It should be very useful because it will show you it all and link you to the appropriate files.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00965337&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3204464


If the link does not work Please go to www.HP.com Look for "Support and Troubleshooting" Click that link, and enter "Photosmart C5280 Printer". For Installations instructions click on "Setup and Install" Then click on "Obtaining and Installing the Software and Drivers in Microsoft Windows"

This should get you to the manufacturers support site where you can troubleshoot and find all the correct drivers for your specific printer.

I hope this helps. Please Rate :) Porfavor

How to install my printer without the CD installer


Go to HP.com, click on Drivers Download, enter Deskjet F830 in the model box and click search. You will then be asked to pick your Operating System, most likely Windows XP or Vista. You will then be shown all the available downloads for that printer. Download and install the driver and the printer should work.

Hp photosmart 7850 doesn t make conection whit my hp pc


Do you have windows xp for os ???? If so deinstall your printer on your computer and disconnect your usb connection.

First install the driver by putting your cd in your computer...Some product will tell you when to connect your usb cable to your computer...if not, make sure your driver is correctly install. After, reboot your PC and plug-in your usb cable and power up your printer....
