Question about HP Photosmart C6280 Printer

1 Answer

Buttons don't work on my 6280

Is there a full or partial reset for the 6280? I have tried a different control panel, but the power switch won't turn it off, and errors that tell you to press "OK" button won't work. Pretty much all panel buttons are inoperative, yet display is fine.

    c6280 is a copier/printer, there are no # or number keys. That is why I asked on this forum. Is there a combo to reset one without these keys?

Unplug the power cord

press and hold # and 3 and while pressing the buttons,replug the cable.

you can also try # and 6 for advanced reset


# and 9 will bring computer to factory defaults and all the data like your fax numbers and other settings will be washed
so i will suggest that you try either a combo of # and 3 or # and 6


Good Luck

My printer wont turn on at all


Some HP machines have 3 reset levels.

I do not know if the 5610 had them but it's worth a try.

Power off printer, then press and hold buttons while powering on, if it doesnn't reset, then unplug it and press and hold buttons while plugging it in, please tell us if the machine even tries to reset.

# and 3 Partial Reset

# and 6 Semi-Full Reset

# and 9 Full Reset

A Full Reset will clear any stored information in the printer, speed dials, etc, so always start with a partial reset and work your way up.

Soft/hard reset combination keys doesnt work for nokia 6280


try this for soft reset

12345 is a standard code and 00000, but if you change it and you have forgotten your unlock code, you'll just have to reformat it

key combination which is used to hard reset the phone (similar to #*7370). It is useful in some cases, for example when the phone cannot reboot.

The trick is
Switch off the phone.
Hold down the following three buttons: Green (call answer) button, * button, and ‘3′ button
While holding these buttons, press the power button and switch on the phone
When the message ‘Formatting’ appears on the screen, release all of the buttons...

reformatting your phone will delete all your data and also will restore all the defaults of your phone, and any corrupted application will be reinstalled, but if the formating doesn't work, you'll just have to re flash it, the safe way is to go to a near repair shop of your phone and have then to re flash your phone,
