I cannot scan


If you on windows xp, go to My Computer and in the list of drives and devices you will see your scanner icon. Double click to open the scanner dialogue box. From there simply follow the instructions to complete your scan.

If you are on windows Vista, go to start/all programs/windows photo gallery. When it opens click on file/import from scanner or camera. The dialogue opens for you to select your scanner. The scanner dialogue box opens and simply follow the instructions to complete your scan.

Good luck & God bless!

Can't print from computer


Reinstall the printer drivers. (completely remove the old ones first)
Try new drivers from HPs website if need be.

Check the print queue in control panel>printers to make sure nothing is lying in the print queue and blocking your printing.

Make sure that you are printing to the correct printer in the "print" dialogue box that pops up when you go file>print. Sometimes this can revert to "microsoft document printing" or somesuchand just save a file on your hard drive instead of printing (in techie speak, printing does not necessarily mean print out on a bit of paper). Or may the "Print" dialogue box wrongly is pointed at another/old printer that still has drivers installed on your pc when it pops up, check before clicking the "ok" button..

If not, try a new cable, if not, call HP.

HP Photosmart C7280 All in One Printer. I am trying to print on new check paper, but it just keeps running it through and then prints on the regular white paper. Any quick fixes?


Check the preferences setting in your Printer Dialogue box (the pop-up that comes up when you attempt to print... the paper settings may be set to standard, which you can modify...

A quick-fix is also to simply print to plain paper, place the newly-printed form in the scanner, and press "copy" on the printer itself (the physical button, not from Windows), with the check paper loaded (place in just one sheet, as not to waste ink)

Hope this helps!

I am out of ink for blue and yellow and just want to print in black (i have plenty of black) can i keep printing. It keeps prompting me before i can resume to replace empty ink cartiages. I really need to...


Perhaps... when you click "print", and the Print Dialogue box appears, try checking the box "Print in Grayscale". It may work, it may not (it's your printer itself that is stopping the process, not windows).

If it's not the standard Word/Excel type program, you can also trying "printing to file" through something like "PDF-Adobe PostScript Printer", which will "print" to a PDF... transfer to disk/flash drive, and head off to kinkos!

Hope it helps!

Have Microsoft Windows XP.....purchased HP Officejet J5780 all in


Before you print, look at the print preview. If it shows your document, then the problem is with the printer. If the page is shown blank, the problem is different. Check your Print dialogue screen (File menu, then Print to see the dialogue screen) . have a look what you have selected under the item Page Range. I believe you have clicked SELECTION without actually selecting anything on the document.If that is the case, undo it by clicking on another option
Best of luck

Does not print. Asks for output file instead.


Hi,

The default printer is set to be "file". Here's what you must do:

- Go to printers dialogue box and right click on your printer name and selectd "Set s default printer"
 - Right click on printers name and chose Properties. then look for a check box saing something like "print to file" and unchek it.

This sould resolve the problem.
Best regards

Try a complete uninstall:

Unplug the USB cable from your PC.
Go to Start> Control panel> Add or Remove programs. and delete all the entries you see for HP.( If it promts a restart do not restart now)
Then open my computer> C:drive> Program files> and delete the HP Folder only (not Hewlett Packard)
Then Open C:drive> Program files> Common Files and then delete HP and Hewlett Packard folder.
Then Go to C:Drive> Windows> Temp and empty the temp folder as much as you can.
Then go to Recycle bin and empty recycle bin.
Then Insert the All-In-One CD and cancel the installation process.
Open the content of the CD> and open Util folder> Then CCC> Then click on Uninstall_L4 and follow the on screen process.

After all restart the computer.

And if possible download the software from HP website:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=mp-19447-3&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=228&product=79477

Click on Download Only and then foloow the on screen setps to install the printer>

If possible try changing USB cable might be a issue with the USB cable as well, as you are able to make copy and fax, Hope it works with the new cord.

Good Luck
