Question about HP Photosmart 3210 Printer
Unfortunately, printers seem to have a short life to them.
We had to replace ours and buy new ink cartridges because
they make it to where you have to buy a different cartridge number for the same brand of printer.
How old is the printer? Base your decision on whether to replace it or not. If it is old, the best thing would be to replace it.

SOURCE: Magenta Cartridge
I have just found a solution on the hp support forum that says:-
Common problem of scanner optics dusted over requiring removing the laser/scanner, uncovering and cleaning mirrors and lenses. See the attached procedure. Takes about an hour, no parts.
On the second message on the following link you will see an attachment that has instructions for the above.

HP, in order to sell more ink, monitors the expiration date of the cartridges installed. Solution is either to buy a new unexpired cartridge from HP or to disable the date monitoring built in to the printer. This latter is done by removing the button cell located inside the D135 printer on the left hand side or by simply slipping a thin piece of plastic between button cell and metal contact. You will no longer have date function on printer, but it won't object to expired cartridges either.

Does the c7280 use seperate Magenta and PhotoMagenta cartridges? If so make certain the right cartridge is in the correct slot.

Try this :
Take out the power cable from the back of the printer keep on tapping the power button for 30 secs ; then plug it back.
Take out the catridges clean them with a Lint free cloth (copper contacts); also clean the catridge slot of the printer; put in back the catridges ;
Unplug the power cable from the back of the printer; press and hol down the (#) and the (6) button simultaneously with one hand and with the other hand put in back the power cable; and then release the (#) and (6) button;
It will perform a reset on the printer
IF still then it doesn't work then the catridge slot's copper contacts has gone bad and need to replace
