SOURCE: i have a hp c6280

I had this same problem with my c6280.
I got fed up (HP only added frustration) and decided to trash it and buy something new.
So I figured I would take it apart and see if it was something obvious, worst thing that could happen was that the printer would not work - allready there.
Here is what I found.
Taking the covers off of this printer is not easy, but after removing all accessable screws I was able to get the covers off.
I found the pump motor on the left side of the printer (it is labled).
The pump motor has a large (approx 2 in) gear on it that is drivin by a belt with teeth.
The other end of the belt is drivin by a small (approx 3/8 in) gear.
There are two belt tensioners on each side of the belt.
PROBLEM; The belt was not riding on one of the tensioners.
This causes the belt to intermitenly engage the gears (stalled pump motor).
I put the belt back on the tensioner, put the covers back on (a real pain).
Printer now works fine.
I think that this may have been a problem out of the box because the lound clicking noise that came with the printer has also gone away.

This is likely a cartridge problem except if the carriage is not moving at all. If you still have some of the used cartridges you can used them to trouble shoot by elimination ok. Or contact a nearby technician who has the cartriges to use them for trouble shooting. I strongly believe the one of the print carts is the culprit. Good luck

SOURCE: hp photosmart 3200 all in one ink system failure

I know this sounds crazy but I did this and others have too, it worked. Hold down four buttons at the same time ( OK, Cancel, Black , Color ) and turn the power off. Note: I figured out how to hold the 4 keys down with one hand and push the on/off switch at the same time. Once you power the printer back up is will take a few minutes to go through maintenance. Then it will “hopefully” go back to normal. I did this 2x’s. HP gives you a procedure that doesn't work! They just want to make money off fixing it every 6 months. They are in the service, repair and “ink business” not printer manufacturing.
