The blue collar is when you are printing on the smaller CD/DVD's and you snap it into place. Most people just use the regular size cds so you won't need the collar.

You are not the first to be less than impressed with hp's directions on this function. That have recently released a video clip that can be very helpful.

I have set up disk for my PIXMA MP160. How do I install this into my gomputer at home. Do i just put the disk in and go from their?


Yes and if the disk does not auto start then open the disk by clicking on the CD drive and double click on the Setup fiel to install the print driver.
The instruction manual will also give instruction on how to setup/install the printer.

Installed new cartridges per instructions but the printer will not print, i get no error lights. i`m at a loss


can you try to make a copy standalone? put a document on scanner and press copy button on the printer.if it is successful,then printer hardware is working fine. you need to insert cd installer that came with the printer in your computer and install it before you can be able to print from the computer.

Just got my new printer loaded my ink as per instructions but nothing will print nothing when I calibritaion


Have you installed its drivers? If not then do so now. To do that, disconnect the printer, insert the CD in the drive and follow the instructions. Reboot after installation. And then connect the printer and let windows detect it and load its drivers. Now you are ready to print.

HI

FIRST YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE PURCHASED THE CORRECT WHIT PRINTABLE DISKS.
YOUR PRINTER WOULD HAVE CAME WITH THE NECESSARY SFTWARE CALLED CD PRINT.
OPEN THE PROGRAM AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS TO CREATE THE IMMAGE ON THE CD/DVD.
YOU WILL BE WORKING WITH AN IMAGE OF A BLANK WHITE DISK, AND WHAT EVER YOU DO THERE WILL BE PRINTED ON YOUR REAL DISK.
YOUR CANNON PRINTER WILL HAVE AN OPENING IN FRONT WHERE YOU WILL HAVE TO INSERT THE DISK WITH THE PROVIDED TRAY ( A BLACK RECTANGLE WHICH THE CD/DVD WILL FIT ON).
FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE PC AND YOU CANNOT GO WRONG

Hp 5280 all-in-one does not print directly on cd


We had the same problem. We had to use HP's printing software. It was called HP Photosmart Essentials. We are using version 3.5. When we went to HP's website to download Photosmart Essentials, it only had version 2.5 for our printer. Our printer, the 5280, is now discontinued so we had to enter another all-in-one printer model that was similar to ours that allowed us to download the 3.5 version. Anyway, best of luck. P.S. - HP isn't what it used to be. I'm considering switching to maybe canon or something. Anyway, peace out.
