Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
My son is trying to print from his mac in his room to my C4280 printer in my room, but it is not found on the bluetooth. I am trying to figure out how to make the printer discoverable, but cannot figure it out. Can you help with this?
SOURCE: I have a HP Photosmart
Unfortuneatley, the C7280 does not have bult in bluetooth. It has normal built in Wireless 802.11g technology. In order to make the printer bluetooth, you can use an external bluetooth device to make it that way. The C8180 is the next model up that includes 802.11g wireless technology as well as bluetooth wireless technology.
This is the bluetooth adapter: http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF06b/18972-18972-236253-34210-396578-459962-465649-459963.html
If you already have the adapter, you might want to try reset the bluetooh settings on the printer. Be default, the printer is setup so that any bluetooth device can print to it. So, if you've played around with the settings then you should just have to reset them.
To reset the bluetooth settings, scroll through the main menu until you get to "Setup" and select it. Scroll through the setup menu and select, "Bluetooth" (This option will only appear if you have the adapter installed). Scroll down until you see "Reset Bluetooth" and that will reset it.
Here is the link to the manual: http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF06b/18972-18972-236253-34210-396578-459962-465649-459963.html (Bottom of page 35 for bluetooth reset.)
I hope this helps,

Have you checked to make sure that you have the correct replacement cartridge?
In general if it simply will not go into position and you know you have the correct cartridge, then you need to take it back to where you bought it and request a replacement - because it is defective.

Try moving the rod that holds the rollers and see if that is loose.
If it is then you need to call up hp and either get a replacement or an upgrade printer with a 50% dicount on an upgrade and if your in warranty then yuor printer will be replaced free of cost.
If it is not loose then try cleaning the rollers with a cloth dipped in water and then try to put the paper in while holding it and see if it goes in this will help detect whether there is something loose with the pick mechanism or not.
Then disconnect the power cable from the printer press and hold the cancel and colour copy buttons and reconnect the power cable and then try to print and see what happens.
If all this does not resolve the problem then call hp at 1-800-474-6836 and ask either for a replacement if your printer is in one years warranty if its not I suggest you go in for the upgrade with atleast a 50% discount
