HP C7280 Printer not priting wirelessly.


Solution Replace the indicated ink cartridge(s), or press OK on the control panel to continue. HP recommends the use of genuine HP ink cartridges. Genuine HP ink cartridges are designed and tested with HP printers to help produce great results, time after time.
NOTE: HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of non-HP ink. Printer service or repairs required as a result of printer failure or damage due to the use of non-HP ink will not be covered under warranty. Follow these steps to replace the depleted HP ink cartridge(s). Step one: Replace the indicated cartridge(s)
  1. Make sure the HP All-in-One is turned on.
    NOTE: The Attention light blinks when the product is turned on.
  2. Open the access door by lifting from the front center of the HP All-in-One, until the door locks into place. Figure 1: Opening the access door c01079714.jpg
  3. Squeeze the bottom of the latch below the ink cartridge to replace, and then lift the latch.
    • To replace the black ink cartridge, lift the latch on the far left.
    • To replace one of the five color ink cartridges, such as yellow, light cyan (blue), cyan, light magenta (pink), or magenta, lift the appropriate latch in the center area.
    Figure 2: Lifting the latch c01079715.jpg 1 - Ink cartridge latch for the black ink cartridge 2 - Ink cartridge latches for the color ink cartridges
  4. Pull the ink cartridge towards you out of its slot to remove it. Figure 3: Removing the ink cartridge c01079716.jpg
  5. Remove the new ink cartridge from its packaging.
  6. Holding the new ink cartridge by the handle, push the ink cartridge into the empty slot. Match the color and pattern of the ink cartridge to the color and pattern on the print carriage. Figure 4: Inserting the new cartridge c01079717.jpg
  7. Close the latch, and make sure it is secure. c01079718.jpg
  8. Close the access door. Figure 5: Closing the access door c01079719.jpg
Step two: Align the new ink cartridge(s)
  1. Make sure paper is loaded in the input tray, and then press the OK button. The HP All-in-One prints the alignment page, aligns the printhead, and initializes the ink cartridges. This takes approximately 5 minutes. CAUTION: Do not disconnect or turn off the HP All-in-One during this time. You may hear the HP All-in-One making noises.
  2. Check the display for status, and then press the OK button. Recycle or discard the alignment page.
Cause The original HP ink in the indicated ink cartridge(s) has been depleted.

Printhead problem (black/yellow) on HP L7780


When you removed the paper it's possible your damaged it and that's why the message is not going away. Did you try to put the cartridge back in to make sure it had not come out of position and just remove the power cord for a minute then plugging it back it.

Here are the steps to make sure you properly change the cartridges and the heads...

Install the ink cartridges and printheads Step one: Install the ink cartridges All four ink cartridges must be correctly installed for the HP All-in-One to work. Follow the steps below to Install cartridges:
  1. Open the ink cartridge cover.
  2. Remove each ink cartridge from its package.
  3. Align each ink cartridge with its color-coded slot and then insert the ink cartridge into the slot. To ensure proper contact, press down firmly on the cartridges until they snap into place.
  4. Close the ink cartridge cover.
Figure 1: Installing cartridges c00841893.gif 1 - Open the ink cartridge cover. 2 - Remove the ink cartridges from the packages. 3 - Install the ink cartridges. 4 - Close the ink cartridge cover. Step two: Install the printheads Follow the steps below to install the printheads.
  1. Open the top cover of the printer. Figure 2: Open the top cover c00848391.gif
  2. If the carriage does not move to the left automatically, press and hold the Resume button (c00847980.gif ) for three seconds. Wait for the carriage to stop moving.
  3. Remove the cardboard cover from the printhead carriage. Figure 3: Remove the cardboard cover c00848392.gif
  4. Lift the printhead latch. Figure 4: Lift the printhead latch c00848393.gif
  5. Before installing a printhead, shake the printhead up and down at least six times while the printhead is still in its packaging. Figure 5: Shake the printhead while it is still in its packaging c00847983.gif
  6. Remove the new printhead from its package, and then remove its orange protective caps. CAUTION: Do not shake printheads after the caps are removed. Figure 6: Remove the printhead from its packaging, then remove the orange caps from the printhead c00847984.gif
  7. Insert the printhead into its color-coded slot. The label on the printhead must match the label on the printhead latch. Press down firmly on the printhead to ensure proper contact. Figure 7: Insert the printheads in the correct color-coded slots c00847985.gif
  8. Pull the printhead latch all the way forward, and then press down to ensure that the latch is properly engaged. You might have to apply some pressure to engage the latch. Figure 8: Close the latch c00848394.gif
  9. Close the top cover. Figure 9: Close the top cover c00847987.gif

  1. Press the Setup button on the control panel Setup and the number 6 on the keypad or scroll to Tools .
  2. Press 4 on the keypad or scroll to Align Printer . The alignment process starts.

How to change black color inkonHp2175all in one


Supported HP ink cartridge part numbers The HP PSC 2100, 2170, and 2200 all-in-one series products use the ink cartridges listed in the table below. The HP 58 tri-color photo ink cartridge replaces the black ink cartridge for six-ink photo printing. Ink cartridges Part number HP 56 black ink cartridge (19 ml) C6656A HP 57 tri-color ink cartridge (17 ml) C6657A HP 58 tri-color photo cartridge* (17 ml) C6658A HP 27 low capacity black ink cartridge (10 ml) C8727A HP 28 low capacity tri-color ink cartridge (8 ml) C8728A * Replaces the black ink cartridge for six ink photo printing and includes cartridge holder. Replacing the ink cartridges The power must be turned ON to the all-in-one or the print carriage will not come to the center.
  1. Locate and raise the print cartridge access door on the front of the unit, just above the output tray. The print cartridge carriage will move into the middle of the access area. Figure 1: Raising the front access door and the ink cartridge latches c00224418.jpg
  2. Press down lightly on the top of the ink cartridge latch of the ink cartridge to be replaced and then pull the lower section of the latch toward you to unlatch the ink cartridge.
  3. Grasping the sides of the ink cartridge, pull the cartridge toward you to remove it as shown in Figure 2. Figure 2: Removing the cartridge after raising the latch c00224419.jpg
  4. Remove the replacement cartridge from its packaging, and touching only the black plastic, gently remove any tape covering the nozzles. Do not touch the gold-colored contacts. Figure 3: Removing the protective tape c00224420.jpg
  5. Holding the ink cartridge with the printed label up, slide the cartridges one at a time into the print carriage as shown in Figure 4. The black ink cartridge (HP 56 or HP 27) goes on the right side (with the gray latch) and the tri-color cartridge (HP 57 or HP 28) goes on the left side (with the blue latch). If the optional photo cartridge (HP 58) is installed for six-ink photo printing, it is installed in place of the black ink cartridge. Figure 4: Inserting the cartridge c00224421.jpg
  6. Place your hand on the latch as shown in Figure 5, with the thumb pulling the end of the latch toward you. While holding the end of the latch out, press down on the top of the latch until it stops and then release the lower portion of the latch with your thumb so that it catches under the tabs. Do not force the latches into place or damage to the unit might occur. Close the all-in-one after latching the ink cartridges in place. Figure 5: Latching the ink cartridges in place c00224422.jpg
  7. Close the print cartridge access door.
  8. A message will appear in the front panel display requesting that the ink cartridges be aligned. Press ENTER on the front panel to start the cartridge alignment. Two pages will print. Following the instructions printed on the second page, place the first page on the scanner glass in the lower-right corner and then press ENTER to finish aligning the cartridges. Remove the page from the scanner glass when complete.
Storing the option photo printing cartridge while not in use The optional photo print cartridge (HP 58) that may be purchased separately for six-ink photo printing includes an ink cartridge protector. The protector is designed to keep the photo cartridge from drying out when it is not in use and for holding and protecting the black cartridge when the photo cartridge is in use.
  • To insert a cartridge into the protector, slide it into the protector at a slight angle until it snaps in place.
  • To remove a cartridge from the protector, push down and back on the top of the protector to release the cartridge and then slide the cartridge out of the protector.
Figure 6: Inserting and removing ink cartridges from the ink cartridge protector c00224423.jpg Fixing error messages that appear after changing a cartridge After inserting the cartridge, one of the following messages appears:
  • Check the black (or color) cartridge
  • Replace the black (or color) cartridge
  • The wrong black (or color) cartridge is installed
These messages indicate that the ink cartridge is not making good electrical contact, is bad, or is the wrong cartridge. Complete the following steps to diagnose and correct the condition:
  1. Open the front of the unit to access the print cartridges (as shown in Figure 1).
  2. Remove the ink cartridge indicated in the message and inspect it.
  3. Verify that it is the correct part number and if it is, reinsert it.
  4. Close the lid to see if the problem is corrected.
  5. If the message is still displayed after a few seconds, remove the ink cartridge again.
  6. Unplug the power cord from the back of the unit.
  7. Clean the electrical contacts on the ink cartridge with a soft clean cloth, slightly dampened (not wet) with clean water. Each contact is very small and shaped like a rounded square. Figure 7: Cleaning the cartridge contacts c00224424.jpg
  8. Inside the HP all-in-one product, clean the contacts in the print carriage (the cartridge holder) with a clean cotton swab slightly dampened with clean water. Allow them to dry for five minutes before reinserting the cartridge(s) and turning on the printer. Figure 8: Contacts to be cleaned c00224425.jpg
  9. If the problem remains, replace the ink cartridge.
  10. If the problem still exists after trying all of the steps above, contact HP for assistance.
