The print head for magenta and cyan (might be also Yellow) is dirty. you can try to clean it with warm water, or replace a new print head.

My HP Photosmart c7280 will not print pink or magenta. How can I fix this issue?


Sounds very much like you have a clogged printer head you should run the deep clean procedure form the printer dialog. If that does not fix the issue you may need to replace the print head.

Colored photos have a parallel red green line running the full width of the picture. Can this be eliminated?


Streaks or Lines in the Printed Image

An ink cartridge could be running out of ink or your ink cartridges require cleaning. Need to check ink levels, run the clean print cartridges utility and then print a diagnostic page.

Working through the steps outlined at the link below will help you to diagnose your specific problem.

Hello. I have followed every procedure to clean the print heads but the pictures still come out in a faded yellow. We also have no red or pink in any of the test print pages. All the cartridges are nearly...


I would suggest cleaning the print head contacts with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab. You can also purchase a cleaning kit which contains basically the same thing. After you are finished, you will need to realign the heads and print test page. Align as needed.

Where to plug in phone port for the HP c5280


Hello,

I'm sorry but the C5200 series printers do not have a phone port. It is not a Fax capable printer. It scans, copies, prints and does photo prints.

The only ports you have are for the USB cable and power cord.

Here is a manual link for reference.

HP printer not printing true color all of a sudden.


Altho the cartridge is new, you may have used all of the ink of one color. Pictures take an enormous amount of ink to print and all three primary colors are used to create the hues and colors indicated on the picture. Try a new color cartridge and see if that works.

Printer not printing properly


When you changed the cartridges, the printer automatically prits a test / calibration page. This page must be placed in the scanner, then you have to press the "scan" key (the green one). It will calibrate an align the system. Then you'll be able to print.
