    The problem was solved by a very simple procedure. The printer was turned on and the error message appeared in the screen. Without turning the printer off, the power cable was removed from the printer, and after 30 seconds was connected again. That is the procedure to reset the printer to its default settings. From that point on, the printer has been working very well. Thanks to all the gurus involved in the effort to help me solve the problem.

    I keep getting the message that the printer is out of paper when there is paper in it. I've tried the unplug/replug but no joy. I did not see anything obviously wrong/broken on a thorough visual check. This is the second HP C7280 printer I've had in three months. The first was returned for a different problem. Any other ideas?

  • charmed4blue Feb 01, 2009

    After printing a document my printer started giving the no paper error.
    The rollers spin but it doesn't pick up the paper. I've done the reset. I've cleaned the rollers, I've change the paper. Please help.

    I too have the same problem, getting the out of paper message when there is plenty of paper loaded. Unplug/replug doesn't work. I don't know how to remove and clean the rubber roller(s). Not exactly going to be able to return it to Circuit City either. Help!

    My printer will print only a few pages before showing the "out of paper, please replace" message too. It's so bad I've had to return three printers: two 6280s, and now a 7280, all for the exact same reason. There must be a fix, but they techs at HP sure don't seem to know it. A little help, please!!!

    I have the same problem...The printer won't pick up paper from the tray...we went from it picking 2 sheets at once to no sheets at all. Any help would be appreciated. I tried the reset process to no avail. How do I get to the rollers to clean them?

You can try to remove the rubber roller that pulls the paper into the printer. Once removed clean it with some rubber renew. If it is very smooth and does not have any texture left in the rubber, the rollers will have to be replaced.

I have an HP C7280 AIO printer. Everytime I print, it always form feeds a blank page bewteen each printed page (print page 1, form feed a blank page, print page 2, form feed a blank page, and so on).

Generally, there are printer set up programs that will let you chose to put a blank sheet or to not do that. If you have a disk or manual, look for the set up utility and go thru the tabs to find paper handling or something similar to that. There should be a check box you can clear to stop the blank page.

I hope that this information was helpful. Have a great day.

I have an HP C7280 All-in-one printer. I was

Well, I took the printer apart(as much as I could w/o removing any screws)and copied something onto card stock. I was looking for any extra business cards that I'd missed. The copying worked. I then unplugged everything and took the printer off of it's stand. I then noticed a piece of plastic from the feed in the back lying on the stand. I somehow managed to get it back on the printer where it belonged and voila! the printer worked! Don't know if the plastic piece was the culprit, but at least the printer works now.

Top feeder not feeding paper through

I have had this problem before and found that certain types of papers cause this. Can you try some different paper you may have lying around and try that? Post back with the results.

Paper feed jams

Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Paper feed

You can try a reset on the printer using the # and the number 6,holding them down while plugging in the power cord at the back of the printer.if it still does not work then you can try the same with the # and the number 9.If it still does not work,get your printer serviced.
