I know that it sounds simple. But have you turned the printer off and back on. I have had a LOT of HPs start printing jibberish, and turning them off and back on is the only thing to fix.
I know it sounds like an obvious thing to try, and I don't mean to insult anyone's intelligence. But you'd be surprised how many people don't try that. They reinstall their driver, and reboot their computer, but never turn the printer off and back on.

My hp photosmart c4280 doesn't print. it won't **** the paper in. does anybody know how to solve this?


Try moving the rod that holds the rollers and see if that is loose.
If it is then you need to call up hp and either get a replacement or an upgrade printer with a 50% dicount on an upgrade and if your in warranty then yuor printer will be replaced free of cost.
If it is not loose then try cleaning the rollers with a cloth dipped in water and then try to put the paper in while holding it and see if it goes in this will help detect whether there is something loose with the pick mechanism or not.
Then disconnect the power cable from the printer press and hold the cancel and colour copy buttons and reconnect the power cable and then try to print and see what happens.
If all this does not resolve the problem then call hp at 1-800-474-6836 and ask either for a replacement if your printer is in one years warranty if its not I suggest you go in for the upgrade with atleast a 50% discount
