Question about HP Photosmart C7280 Printer

1 Answer

No printing, just blank papers shooting out

When I print from my ibook G4, the 'printing processing' box comes up and completes, so I believe the problem lies in the printer.  The printer seems like it will print, but it just shoots out one blank piece of paper after another, until I hit the cancel button of the printer.

First verify that the printer is working by printing a configuration page from the printer itself. If it prints fine, uninstall and reinstall the printer with the latest driver from HP.

If the printer will not print an internal config page, replace the ink cartridges.

My Dell A920 prints blank paper.


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.

This is a very late response to your query, but you did have it in the C46 section. It sounds like you have blocked heads but there could be other reasons such as a faulty print head or main board. If you still require help with this problem, please post a new comment to this effect.

Will not Print


Try a hardware check of the printer first. To check the hardware of the printer, do the following:
  1. Switch off the printer.
  2. Load one sheet of paper into the paper feeder.
  3. Press the Power button and the Paper Feed button at the same time and hold them both down for three seconds. Then release the Power button only.
  4. When the printer begins to print, release the Paper Feed button. A page will be printed. The page should contain some text at the top and a series of horizontal color lines (cyan, magenta and yellow) below the text, with a thick black line below the colored lines. All the lines should be solid.
  5. When the test is complete, switch off the printer. NOTE: If you do not switch off the printer, it will continue to print.

Blank printout


If you are able to drag out your users manual, most lazer printers have a self cleaning process for the head, which takes around 3-5 minutes to complete, after that try to run a test page to ensure the colors are working fine.

Failing that, unless the printer is brand new, and or unless it has been sitting ( unused - regardless of age ) the print heads can dry out leaving a blockage ... hence, no ink, hence blank page.

The only other suggestion after running a Print head clean, would be to replace or refill the ink cartridges.

Ibook g4 - screen will not appear


Try adjusting the monitor brightness (F2). If you have an extra monitor, try connecting the mini VGA to see if it outputs a signal extenally. The videocard is onboard the logicboard....so, that is one way to process of eliminate.

Also, if you start the machine after the apple chime, hold down the OPTION key. This will prompt you as to which bootable volume to boot from. What this does though, is gives the monitor a signal before the operating system loads.....this usually eliminates the issue being software, but very seldom is no display a software issue.....

Hope this helps.

Printing only the top quarter of the page.


Believe it or not all you have to do (probably) is to clean out your temporary internet files. This quite often works.
