Question about HP Photosmart C6280 Printer

1 Answer

Will not print Error message

I have had my HP 6280 for less than a year, alot of troule. I used to have to keep reinstalling it. It would just disappear from my "printers" list. Now, that I have finally gotten that resolved, it printed for a while, Now, when I try to print, it says printing for about 10 minutes, then will eventually say error. (sometimes it will say spooling). When I try to cancel documents from the pending print list (because they start to add up after a while, since nothing is printing It says, deleting for a looong time! Printer says nothing, just stays on the welcome screen Nothing prints.

All new HP cartridges. Everything else in the network is working fine. Router has been restarted, every chord has been checked for a secure connection.

Sorry so wordy, just wanted to give enough info so that I can figure out my problem. We need to print!

    bandana_gyrl: I don't think it's a network connection because I tried to connect the computer directlty to the printer, and set it up that way. . . got the same messages. I don't know how to reset it (I'm using VIsta).



    Leroyal, thanks, I will try it

    Hmmmm - well the issue doesn't sound like it is coming from the printer. Could be a network issue but it actually sounds like something is wrong with the print system on your computer. What OS are you using and I can try to suggest a reset?

HP 6280 Printer. Not printing. Ran diagnostics form HP software. No issues. Printer an computer are communicating. Can run alignment test and Diagnostic Print Page from computer without issue. ...


Well you definitely have a pc problem and not one of the printer. the printer just prints what it is sent and as you can print the alignment page that takes care of the printer.

You have reinstalled the driver but did you remove the old one first? I bet not. You should download the hp printer removal tool. Run it and after a restart then you can install the driver. Personally i would turn off the auto update feature as hp updates really mess things up.

I reckon after the reinstall the printer will be fine.

Keep getting scanning error message


How do you have the HP6110 connected to your system? This problem can sometimes be caused by using to long a cable between the computer and the multifunction printer. I would use a short cable (6 foot or less) to make sure that it's not a communications problem. This ususally manifests itself with an error message while scanning although the printing function work ok.

New black print cartridge is getting a "low ink" error message


too generic and too lack of info to help precisely but try reinstalling the drivers, FIRST uninstall all HP stuff completely and reboot your system. After reinstalling take both cartridges out, buy a bottle or spray of isopropilic alcohol and clean the cartridges contacts carefully. If cartridges are new and genuine there is no need to do that of course.
