Did you replace these that they are telling you? If yes make sure you took off the tab that closes the hole that the ink flows from. if you did that make sure the cartridge is all they way in til the end. Close the printer & restart it. Then do a cleaining then a test page.It should be fine.If this did not help post to me and I will help you further.
Good Luck!!

SOURCE: HP Photosmart C7280 still prints in color

Why don't you try changing the Setup for your printing to Black & White or Grayscale in your computer's software: File/Print/go to the printer's settings and disable anything color. As for the cartridge, it's probably the cartridge. If you have an extra, why not swap it out? I believe the brains in the cartridge contacts might not be working properly OR your heads need to be cleaned OR you better stick with HP original cartridge to make sure it's not the printer. I used to use "odd" ink and even refilled ones and shortly thereafter my old printers would die. Not taking a chance on this HP. I love how it prints when it isn't jamming the paper! Need help on that problem pronto.

I want to disable messages about the inkcartridges.


Sadly not. The HP Photosmart C7280 insists on having a full set of cartridges installed in order to print. It does this because the printheads are actually part of the printer itself and can sustain damage if they pull air into the printhead.

The out of date message is also non-negotiable I am sad to say.

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.
