Question about HP Photosmart C5280 InkJet Printer

Out of Paper

Printer was working fine. Five minutes later, I ran out of paper and got an error message to that affect. I inserted paper in the tray and attempted a print job, but the machine won't print and keeps indicating that there is no paper in the machine. I'm at a loss as to what happened, but it seems to have occurred between print jobs when I reloaded the paper tray. ???

    Thanks, Smithbrother. I checked the HP web site and they listed a several possible fixes, one of which was to clean the rollers. I tried all of them except the roller cleansing, which I didn't think could be the problem. When nothing else worked, I broke down and gave it a try--washing all the rollers I could find with distilled water. When I plugged the printer back in, and attempted a print job -- IT WORKED! No problems since.

Keeps saying paper cassette no set correctly or objects blocking path


I was also stuck with this error message for a while. It turned out to be a 4x6 photo paper got stuck in back in a place that was not easily visible. I had to detach the double-sided paper module from the back, tilt the printer on its side and reach in with fingers and pliers to pull it out. The error message was correct, that something was blocking the cassette tray even though you could push the tray all the way in!

Paper jam


You are receiving this error message because there is a paper jam or the top (photo) tray is not securely in position and the printer cannot initialize. This error message can appear for an ESP 7, ESP 9, ESP 7250, or ESP 9250 all-in-one printer.
To resolve a paper jam, we have an easy Step-by-Step Solutions and Repair tool. Within the tool, select All-in-one printer, then Paper jam.

When you clear the paper jam:
  1. Make sure you open the paper output tray and inspect the top tray for photo paper that could be jammed inside or that remains in the nip at the entrance.
  2. Pull out the bottom paper tray and clear any paper jams.
  3. Remove the duplexer from the back of the printer and clear any paper jam.
NOTE: Curled photo paper could induce a paper jam. To prevent curling:
  • Store un-printed paper in a tightly closed plastic bag or in its original packaging.
  • Store sealed packages of paper flat, and not on
  • When you are ready to print, take only the paper intend to use immediately.
To remove curl in photo paper:
  1. Place the paper in a plastic bag or in its original packaging.
  2. Gently bend the paper in the opposite direction of the curl, then insert it into a tube-a paper towel tube works well.

    NOTE: The tube should be larger than 1.5 in. (4 cm) in diameter.
  3. After a few minutes, remove the paper from the tube.
  4. Remove the paper from the plastic bag or packaging.
  5. Verify that the curl has been removed from the paper. Repeat the steps above if necessary.
If the top paper tray is not securely in position and the printer cannot initialize (you may hear a grinding noise, and the top paper tray will not open), contact Kodak.

Printer will not print properly, say photo tray not engaged.


take out the photo tray if you can and put it back into its place /
turn off the printer and turn it back on . if it works fine if it does not ,the sensor is bad .
it gives you this message only if the paper try is not inserted properly or it is a false error message .

Error response: out of paper


Did you press "ok" or "start" after you reloaded the paper? If so, turn off the printer, unplug it from the power source for a few minutes and then plug back in and turn it on again. That should help.

913 service motor error


If this is the first time you have seen this error, do the following:
  1. Power off the printer.
  2. Remove all installed paper trays.
  3. Make sure the paper is loaded correctly in each tray. If it is not, reload the paper into that tray.
  4. Look up into the printer where the paper tray slides in and out. Check the feed (autocompensator) assembly for any damage.
  5. If everything is fine, reinstall the tray and power on the printer.
  6. Try printing a few print jobs.
  7. If the error does not return, continue using the printer as before. Keep an eye on it for the next few days. If the error does not return, it may have been an isolated incident.
  8. If the error returns just as soon as you power on the printer or when you try to print again, you will need to find out which paper tray/paper source is causing the problem.
  • If the printer has only the one integrated paper tray, the problem will be with either the tray 1 pick arm/autocompensator assembly or the printer's engine/system board.
  • If the printer has more than one paper tray installed, try printing from each paper tray one at a time. The best way to do this is to have all of the paper trays empty and then proceed as follows:
    1. Put paper in tray 1 only.
    2. Print from tray 1.
    3. If tray 1 works fine, empty tray 1 and put paper in tray 2 and so on until you encounter the error message.
    4. If you receive the error when printing from one particular tray, power off the printer to clear the error.
    5. Power the printer back on.
    6. Skip the faulty paper feed slot and move on to the next one (if another one is present). If you can print from all but one of the paper trays, this is the source of the problem.

      If you have extra paper trays/drawer units installed and the error occurs from only one particular source, there are some things you can do as a temporary fix.
      • If the error is occurring from an OPTIONAL paper drawer/source, power off the printer and remove the defective drawer from the printer. You will then need to set up the printer to print from a different tray. For information on removing an optional drawer, click here.
      • If the error is occurring from the integrated paper tray (tray 1) AND you have optional paper trays installed, take all of the paper out of tray 1 but leave tray 1 installed. Set up the printer to print from one of the other paper tray sources (tray 2, tray 3, multi-purpose feeder, etc.).
    7. And if your getting the same error then you need to get it serviced...

Toner not set insert toner message


The problem is with the paper tray not the toner, believe it or not. Take all of the paper out of the tray and then reinsert the paper into the tray. It should then work fine.

No paper error


There's a little plastice lever type thing that hangs down above where the paper tray is inserted. When the paper tray pops up after being inserted, the paper moves this lever up. This is how the printer knows if there is paper or not. With the tray out, push the little white lever up and see if the "No Paper" message goes away. If it does go away, the lever/sensor is working OK, if not the lever sensor is bad. If that was not the problem, check that the paper tray is popping up after being inserted (look from the back of the device while you insert the tray). If it does not pop up, there is a little white plastic button type thingy on the side of the tray that releases the paper tray to pop up after you insert it into the printer. Make sure that is working correctly. If you flip the pritner upside down, you can see this little white plastic button type thing that should release the paper tray to pop up during the insertion process.
