Question about HP Printers & Copiers

2 Answers

HP Photosmart C7280 All-in-One Machine will print from most of my prog. files, does all scanning and free-standing printing BUT it will not print any file from my SERIF PagePlus X3 It declares that the page size is wrong and when I correct that it will only "print to Fax"- which I do not need anyway. Is there any way of gently disabling Fax as I am not connected for it and persuade it to print from Serif files. W.M.Owen

The wrong size is because the fax prinbter is set as default printer, or because the printer software is not properly installed and set.

To fix the problem unplug printer USB and try uninstalling from Control Panel>>Add remove programs.

Then do re-installing using HP disk, or downloading software from HP website.

Ensure you start software setup with printer USB unplugged, and also that you set your HP as default printer during installation.

The printer setup wizard will tell you when to connect USB cable to printer.

Copying and scanning don't work but produce all-black image


Hi,

please clean the scanning glass and also the feeder.
Open the machine check if any paper has struck anywhere inside.
In most of issues it will work, if this does not works call your technician to troubleshoot the problem

Can not scan to my computer


Hello,

Scanning thru a wireless connection is not supported on these printers. Printing does not require that much data to be sent back to the computer, scanning of course does. Printers require a bi-directional signal path to allow scanning such as USB and parallel ports. Sorry to be the barer of bad news.

Can't scan to computer


I am not an expert, only a c7280 user. I use my printer wirelessly and was having problem scanning when using the controls directly on the printer (scan menu). By trial and error, I tried scanning by going to HP solution center on my computer and just followed the directions from the scan menu. That worked. If you can print wirelessly, you can scan wirelessly. I agree the HP support is a huge waste of time. I only get mad talking to them.

Unable to add a functioning (second) printer, for greyscale.


Clicked on Start/Control Panel/PrinterI. Clicked Add a printer. Obtained (Copy 1) of my HP Photosmart C7280 all-in-one printer. Right clicked on (Copy 1)/properties. Opened Ports tab. Saw comment "Print to the following Ports. Documents will print to the first free checked port." A listed USB Virtual printer port, showed three printers -- my first printer, my copy 1 (& my fax printer) -- was unchecked. I placed a checkmark in this Port box. Both the original printer, and my copy 1 printer are printing just fine. *I have not checked to verify that my fax is functional.
I did rename the original "color". I renamed Copy 1 as "grayscale", and --under printer preferences, checked, under "color options", to print in greyscale.

My C7280 HP photosmart will not scan to my computer.  I get the message "no scan options"


I have had a similar problem that appeared soon after an automatic HP software update over the internet. I solved the problem by uninstalling and reinstalling the HP software that came with the CD. I inserted the CD and ran the de-install for only the program that controlled print and scan and then re-installed the software for print and scan. Straight afterwards, the scanning started to work again
