Printer stopped printing; amber teardrop is flashing; no paper jam; cartridges should not be empty. Shouldn't there be a notice of low ink before it just stops printing? Or, the printed pages be faint? All...


The top access door on the printer might be open, or there might be something wrong with the print cartridge.
  1. Check to make sure that the top access door is firmly closed.
  2. If the light continues to blink, open the top access door. When the top access door opens, the print carriage moves so the yellow arrow on top of the print carriage points to a drawing of a cartridge inside the cover. Each drawing describes a symptom.

Try this one
Take out the inks and printhead
Leave the cartridge door open, then unplug the power cord from the back of the printer while the access door is open
Close the cartridge door once the cord is unplugged
Reconnect the powercord, turn on the printer, then your printer will look for your printhead "Printhead missing or not installed correctly..."
Then put everything back. make sure it will snap in to place. Then print a calibration page, then scan it. This is just over writing the error message.

HP C7280 Printer not priting wirelessly.


Solution Replace the indicated ink cartridge(s), or press OK on the control panel to continue. HP recommends the use of genuine HP ink cartridges. Genuine HP ink cartridges are designed and tested with HP printers to help produce great results, time after time.
NOTE: HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP ink. Printer service or repairs required as a result of printer failure or damage due to the use of non-HP ink will not be covered under warranty. Follow these steps to replace the depleted HP ink cartridge(s). Step one: Replace the indicated cartridge(s)
  1. Make sure the HP All-in-One is turned on.
    NOTE: The Attention light blinks when the product is turned on.
  2. Open the access door by lifting from the front center of the HP All-in-One, until the door locks into place. Figure 1: Opening the access door c01079714.jpg
  3. Squeeze the bottom of the latch below the ink cartridge to replace, and then lift the latch.
    • To replace the black ink cartridge, lift the latch on the far left.
    • To replace one of the five color ink cartridges, such as yellow, light cyan (blue), cyan, light magenta (pink), or magenta, lift the appropriate latch in the center area.
    Figure 2: Lifting the latch c01079715.jpg 1 - Ink cartridge latch for the black ink cartridge 2 - Ink cartridge latches for the color ink cartridges
  4. Pull the ink cartridge towards you out of its slot to remove it. Figure 3: Removing the ink cartridge c01079716.jpg
  5. Remove the new ink cartridge from its packaging.
  6. Holding the new ink cartridge by the handle, push the ink cartridge into the empty slot. Match the color and pattern of the ink cartridge to the color and pattern on the print carriage. Figure 4: Inserting the new cartridge c01079717.jpg
  7. Close the latch, and make sure it is secure. c01079718.jpg
  8. Close the access door. Figure 5: Closing the access door c01079719.jpg
Step two: Align the new ink cartridge(s)
  1. Make sure paper is loaded in the input tray, and then press the OK button. The HP All-in-One prints the alignment page, aligns the printhead, and initializes the ink cartridges. This takes approximately 5 minutes. CAUTION: Do not disconnect or turn off the HP All-in-One during this time. You may hear the HP All-in-One making noises.
  2. Check the display for status, and then press the OK button. Recycle or discard the alignment page.
Cause The original HP ink in the indicated ink cartridge(s) has been depleted.

Well, here is the proper way of fixing or troubleshooting that paper jam error in your printer

Open the printer access door and remove both of the ink cartridge, then remove also the printhead, after that close the printer access door, without those parts. Then it will show a message in the printer screen, "Printhead is missing or has come loose" or "Printhead Not Detected" Install the printhead, just the printhead without the ink cartridges. After that close the printer access door. Then it will show you a message"Ink cartridges is not installed,install ink cartridges". then open again the printer access door, then install the black ink cartridge without the color ink cartridge. then close the printer access door, then message must be " Color ink cartridge is not installed, install color ink cartridge" then install the color ink cartridge." the message must be,"New printhead is detected calibration require, load paper and press start"

Thats the way of overiding the paper jam error message of your kodak all in one printer
hope this will help you guys
