Inside silly. ;)
(sorry couldn't resist)
Remove the right hand plastic side panel.
Ground yourself to discharge possible static electricity,
Remove the 5 screws holding the cct board.
Battery is on the cct board.
Be careful of damaging wires when reassembling.

If the alignment failed on HP Photosmart C6280, Try to check if any of the cartridges are low on ink. if so replace them and try to re-align

If that is not the issue, Remove the Cartridges from the printer and clean the contacts with lint free cloth and put them back in. The printer should go thru auto - alignment..

If this fails too, Press Cancel button on printer and Press the Menu button ( setup button ) and scroll to Tools menu - Press OK - Under tools option you will find Clean Cartridges - Press OK.

If this process too does not fix the issue, mostly likely your printer has gone bad. It needs replacement.

The best i can suggest you will be to Call HP support - 1-800-474-6836 and check best deal they can offer you on upgrade printer.

My hp photosmart C6280 prints but no ink comes out on the page at all. It thinks it is printing fine.

This is due to either dry or clogged printer cartridges. You can try removing the cartridges from the printer and cleaning the metal contacts with alcohol and a Q-tip, but more than likely they will need to be replaced. This can happen if the printer has not been used in a while.

HP C6280 All-In-One: Problem with "Set As New Defaults" feature

What is happening, is the memory battery has failed.
When you remove the power, the settigs are stored in memory, and that memory is maintained by a lithium battery, either in the memory chip itself or mounted to the board.
If the battery is not good, the machine will reset back to the original factory settings.
