Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Hi. I have an HP Photosmart C6280 All-in-One printer-scanner-copier. It jams up all the time and I have to remove the back panel to get the paper out. Ever since the last paper jam I cleared, it has been making awful, rattling noises when I print, like the gears are stripping out or something, plus there is a squeak, too. I've only tried printing a handful of times since then and the paper was moved through the printer like normal. And it printed fine at first, but then the pages became so light that they were hard to read. I did a self test that showed all colors printing fine, but the black print & ink sample had streaks throughout the page. I've tried turning the printer off and back on again. I've also tried uplugging it for a while. I've tried cleaning the printheads. I've also tried to realign the printer. But, it still makes those awful noises everytime I try to print. Is this printer done? Or is there hope for it? Please help!
This is hope, i had this problem once. what it was was a small piece of paper that was caught in the rollers. i know you said this, but check again, I am almost positive this is your problem
lastly, check the black cartridge, take it out make sure nothing is stuck to the ink dispensary for clear printing
hope this helps and good luck
