Question about HP Photosmart C5280 Printer

2 Answers

Unwanted prints My Photosmart C5280 keeps on printing many more copies than specified. Select 10 and it keeps on printing well over 1000 copies. Is there a Windows 8.1 64 bit driver? The one from HP is dated 2012 before Windows 8 existed.

    Thanks much for your reply. I have downloaded the latest driver from HP for Windows 8. This is the one I am having problems with. I have not used the CD for installation. I have not tried to do a factory reset of the C5280 printer yet. I tried printing a multipage pdf file (one copy) and it kept right on printing showing over 200 of 1 copy as it was printing. I will try a Windows 7 driver next. Thanks again.

Likely you have something like 100 copies set in the driver, so when you tell your program 10, that gets multiplied.
Many manufacturers don't update printer drivers, but the old one may work for you, or Microsoft may include one in the Windows install.

Never use the disc that ships with the printer. They are always outdated. There is currently a Windows 8 64bit driver listed on HP's site http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=4132&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=3204464#N185

There is something on your scanner glass. Clean the glass with glass cleaner. If this happens when using the automatic document feeder, open the top side cover where the paper feeds into. There is a narrow glass strip there. Clean that as well.

If this fails, the scanner head has a bad sector on the CCD and will need to be replaced. You will probably find that it will be cheaper to replace the printer entirely if that is the case.

My Hp C5280 photosmart printer keeps failing to properly print the alignment page, I just now change the black, is it possible that since my color is out that it will not print properly?


Yes this can happen.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Check if the correct paper size is selected according to the letter size that you are trying to print,select custom size and give the specifications of the paper manually.
Open Solution center software on your PC, click settings>Printer settings, in the feature tab you have an option named Paper type, select plain paper and then click ok and close window and Solution center and try to print.

C5280 won,t print


I had a problem with my C5280 installing another copy of itself when I restarted my computer. Check to see that you don't have multiple copies installed and are possibly trying to print to the wrong one.

HP Photosmart C5280 printer - 1 month old not printing correctly


Usually this problem is indicative of a clogged nozzle. I'm not sure about the track record of the Photosmart C5280 (a lot of Epson printers have this problem, and you just have to keep replacing the ink cartridges). I'm going to assume you tried this, but go ahead and run a few cleaning cycles on the printer, and see what happens.
