Question about HP Photosmart C5280 Printer

2 Answers

My printer is flashing a green light and won't print anything. I have returned the printer to the store and had it replaced with a new one thinking the printer was faulty but still no change. It is a new printer HP Deskjet D1560 with a new USB cable. It worked when I first installed it and then stopped working after about 20 days. Please Help!

    I have tried all of that and still it is not working! Loosing the will to live here!

    Could this be a problem with the USB cable?

The printer is waiting for you to load paper from aspecific feed, alternately the print job you are sending to the unit is too much for the printer to handle. Open up the printer (check your start up bar in the lower right corner of your screen) There you will find a small printer icon. double click on it and open it. you will see a print job in the listing. remove them all by highlighting them and pressing the delete key on the key board. It will take a few minutes to remove all of them. Once they are all gone, reboot your pc and start to print again. Don't forget to turn off the printer when you do this and turn it back on after the q is clear.

    Check to make sure your printer is set to print "on line". If you have removed the printer from the system in mid print than it will have been put off line. open the printer up on your screen and check the top of the tab. if it says "Off line" than open the file tab and change the status.

I have a Canon MP600R. It has stopped printing and shows error code 6000 and started off flashing orange, now it's flashing alternate orange and green and the print cartridges have no lights.


I had this same problem. I called cannon and they advised me that the machine was not fixable and offered me a new one for a cheaper price than most stores. Hope this helps.

My Cannon i860 is blinking an amber light five times and then returns to green then blinks amber five times and so on. What is this error telling me?


I too went through all the cleaning processes on my i860 with its amber light blinking five times to one of green. After all that time and effort, I ordered a new head, replaced it, put the old ink carts back in, and presto, worked like a charm. Don't waste time and money doing anything else.

My canon ip1880 printer orange light flashing 7 times even after I have installed both my cartridges correctly.


1. Press power button while plug in the power cord – green lamp.
2. While hold the power button press resume button twice – orange blink and return to green.
3. Release the power button, Then the PC will recognize new printer install.
4. You need the software for permanent reset.
5. Run the software and select printer port.
6. Then select Set Destination
7. Click MAIN and PLATEN button to reset waste ink counter to zero.
8. Finally test print by click TEST PATTERN button.

I70 wont print & Printer Head won't return to the centre


The first error was waste ink near full which you can bypass with resume button, now the absorber is full which means it won't print until you have the drain pack replaced and the counter reset by a shop.
