    I get a "load paper" error, even with a full load of paper.  I have tried to clean the paper loading area to no avail.

    I even got a spanking brand new printer, but it still has the same problems as the one I got before the RMA. Very annoying... And I hardly ever print to this printer because I also have a laser!

I experienced the same problem on a HP Photosmart C7280 All-in-one printer. The problem was that the light-blue plastic piece, which covers half of the printing paper tray, had gotten out of alignment with the gray piece which covers the other half of the paper stack. Pull the blue plastic tray out and align it properly.

Not printing black


To align the printer from the control panel

1. Load letter, A4, or legal unused plain white paper into the input tray.
2. Press Setup.
The Setup menu appears.
3. Press to highlight Tools, and press OK.
The Tools menu appears.
4. Press to highlight Align Printer, and press OK.
5. The HP All-in-One prints a test page, aligns the print head, and calibrates the printer.

Recycle or discard the page.

A success or failure message appears.

Note If you have colored paper loaded in the input tray when you align the printer, the alignment will fail. Load unused plain white paper into the input tray, and then try the alignment again.If the alignment fails again, you might have a defective sensor or ink
cartridge.

6. Press OK to continue.
7. Recycle or discard the page.

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!
