Question about HP Photosmart C7280 Laser Printer

I have an HP C7280 All-in-one printer. I was

I have an HP C7280 All-in-one printer. I was printing business cards when the printer picked up 4 cards at once and created a paper jam. I pulled the sheets out...fron the front...and attempted to print again, but this time on plain paper. The printer will not print. I went to the control panel and clicked on printers and the icon for my printer says 'door open'. Does this have something to do with the previous paper jam, and if so, what can I do to fix it?

Well, I took the printer apart(as much as I could w/o removing any screws)and copied something onto card stock. I was looking for any extra business cards that I'd missed. The copying worked. I then unplugged everything and took the printer off of it's stand. I then noticed a piece of plastic from the feed in the back lying on the stand. I somehow managed to get it back on the printer where it belonged and voila! the printer worked! Don't know if the plastic piece was the culprit, but at least the printer works now.

My C7280 HP Photosmart printer isn't printing the right colors. Anything that is red comes out yellow. Don't know what to do?


It's possible that your print cartridge needs cleaning.
1. Turn on your computer, wait for it to boot up, then turn on your printer and load with paper.
2. Double click the "HP Imaging Director" icon on your desktop.
3. On the screen that appears, click the "Settings" subheading, scroll down to "Print Settings and
over to "Printer Toolbox" and click on it.
4. After clicking on "Printer Toolbox", click on "Clean the Print Cartridges" button and wait for
the printer to complete it's operation, afterwards, print a test page to check the results.
If this operation does not solve your problem, I suggest changing the print cartridge and see
if this helps.

Printing a custom size card with a C7280,


There is a workaround for this problem by tricking the printer.
The paper sensor, on my printer model hp4500 seems to only sense the paper at the beggining of the print job.
What I did to trick the printer to print on odd size paper is slide the paper adjuster to 8.5 and put a regular white sheet in. Then put your odd size paper under it. When you print your document set the number of copies to 2 and print. The printer is going to sense that the paper is correct, and start the job.
Here is the tricky part... once the first 8.5x11 sheet is almost all the way through quickly slide the paper adjuster over to match the size of your odd width paper. The printer should pick up the odd paper and print the second copy. Fool you printa! You should be able to do batches of odd paper size under the first 8.5X11. I hope this helps.

I cant print business cards on my hp c5280


Verify no pieces of the card paper are missing and try printing on plain paper to make sure. Then try new card paper and make sure none of the perforations are separated.
