Question about HP Photosmart C7280 Laser Printer

1 Answer

My HP Photosmart C7280 does not recognise refilled cartridge.

After the original cartridge ran out I replaced it with a refilled one. When I try to print a message comes up saying that the ink level is depleted and to replace the cartridge. Is there any way round this or do I have to buy the expensive HP cartridges?

p.s. In the product section it does not give me the correct option for my printer. It is a HP Photosmart C7280 All in One.

Yes that is because when you get a cartridge refilled then what may have happened is when you gave a print command some of the ink may have splattered onto the ink spraying sensors(usually happens with refilled cartridges on any printer).Its because of the heat generated with which the ink nozzles cannot handle as the ink that is sprayed from refilled cartridges is a little more than regular original ink cartridges.Dip a cotton swab in water wipe the copper contacts on the cartridge.Then wipe around the place where the cartridges sit and also wipe the carriage rod which is inside the printer (metal rod)along which ur spraying mechanism(carriage) moves. If this does not resolve your issue call in to hp at 1800-474-6836 and you can purchase original cartridges that are just for 11 dollars each.........or you can purchase a combination pack which will be cheaper

I want to use non HP Ink ! but this happened !!!


Send a test print to it from the printer properties. If you did not have any issues before you re-charged the printer cartridge, try another cartridge.

Run out ink error warning message


are using a refilled cartridge?
if yes, install an actual brand new one.

are you using an official cartridge that you've had laying around for a while?
the cartridges expire so check if your cartridge has expired and replaced accordingly.

I have a HP C7280. When printing the text is very light. Like it has a clog or something. Ran alignment and it says alignment failure. I run the head clean. and it still prints super light.


I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

HP Photosmart C7280 still prints in color


Why don't you try changing the Setup for your printing to Black & White or Grayscale in your computer's software: File/Print/go to the printer's settings and disable anything color. As for the cartridge, it's probably the cartridge. If you have an extra, why not swap it out? I believe the brains in the cartridge contacts might not be working properly OR your heads need to be cleaned OR you better stick with HP original cartridge to make sure it's not the printer. I used to use "odd" ink and even refilled ones and shortly thereafter my old printers would die. Not taking a chance on this HP. I love how it prints when it isn't jamming the paper! Need help on that problem pronto.

Ink Refill for HP Photosmart c7280 not working


Hi Lisa,

If it responds ok with the old cartridge then the problem is with the cartridges' chip not the printer. Probably the manufactor has a problem with certain cartridge chip (contact them!). I would suggest to use the original at the problematic spot if it works without a problem.
