Install the printer software from the CD that accompanies your Printer and then try connecting the usb cable of your printer. It should work.

I would suggest that you disconnect the usb cable from the printer. Then, if the printer was previously installed and stopped working, uninstall all programs related to the printer through Add/Remove Programs or Programs & Features in the Control Panel.
After restarting the computer with the printer still disconnected you can follow the directions below to download the latest drivers.
To download the drivers you can go here. When the page opens you will need to choose your operating system. Then, from the Drivers section I would choose the full feature driver.
To start the download, select the download link to the right of the version you selected. Then, choose Save. After that, select Desktop from the Save In field. Then click Save to start the download.
Double click the icon to start the install.
Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Connection is the problem,if the power indicator do not light up try replacing the power supply cord. If the power supply is okay then try replacing the connector from printer to your computer.

Make sure you installed the software properly..sometimes some software requires you connect the printer first then install software...other times you install software first then install printer....make sure the settings are set up the same on the printer and computer....make sure all connections are secure..check owners manual...

Did you install the CD disk that comes with the HP 1280 printer?
Have the printers USB cable unplugged from the computer. Turn the printer off. With your computer running and Windows fully loaded, install the HP 1280 CD disk into your optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)
Follow the instructions. If it asks you to restart your computer, do so. (Start>Turn Off Computer>Restart)
When Windows has fully loaded again, plug the USB cable of the printer into your computer. Turn the printer on.
You should get a "Found New Hardware", and perhaps a "Found HP 1280 printer device", out of your system tray bar at the bottom of your monitor screen.
You should now be able to click on Start, hover your mouse cursor on All Programs, and look to the right for your HP printer software programs.
In this same list, should be a -> Help <- feature at the bottom of the list.
Should you have any questions.
