My printer is saying refer to documentation, there's a fault with the righ cartridge, help?


You mean its saying you have a "faulty" right cartridge?

what that means is that the cartridge on your right has a problem and needs to be replaced or repositioned. You can try two things to fix this problem.

You can try removing it and replacing it to see if its just not snapped into the printer correctly. then try cleaning the print nozzle or alligning the cartridges to see if that stops it. To clean the print nozzle or align the cartridges, click on "menu" on the printers keyboard and then use the arrows to scroll until you find "maintenance" and then press "enter" or "ok". Continue scrolling until you find the "clean print nozzle" feature and then press "ok" or "enter". Follow the prompts and try cleaning a couple of times in a row.

If this does not correct the error. Replace the cartridge.

Hp photosmart c5280 all-in-one printer........the color ink cartridge will not allign


I had a similar issue, I called HP Support and they had me change out the ink, re-run the alignment, restart, change out the paper, run the alignment again. They had me try everything you could imagine. But, in the end; there was absolutely nothing that would fix it. They said that pulling paper jams from the printer among other things (if not done properly) can permanently damage the print head to where the alignment can no longer correct it. Luckily, while it took forever, the printer was under warranty...I had to do a warranty repair, but the new printer had no issues.

HP C5280 all in one prints but does not scan


2 ways to scan from HP printers

First* try from "my computer" ... near the bottom of the page you should see "scanners" in there, try clicking that and follow prompts

Second* go to start/ programs/ HP/ HP Solution Center
all scanning choices should be on the left

Please don' forget to rate me : )
