Open Question

HP Photosmart C6280 all in one printer with vista. Light cyan doesnt appear to be working when printing on photo paper. Colours are fine on ordinary paper but with photo paper the colours are too pink. If colour in original photo is like the Light cyan it just shows up as pink. Grey clouds have a pink hue. Have replaced cartridge three times and ink is not expired. Have uninstalled and reinstalled printer. Have alighned and cleaned printheads. Am using HP advanced photo paper as recommended for this printer - and cartridges are original HP not refilled.

SOURCE: HP photosmart c7280 printing photos with purple hue

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

SOURCE: black ink will not print. Colours ok

Get a syringe, remove the needle, remove the ink cartridge and use the syringe to blow air GENTLY through the hole the cartridge connects to. Make sure you have a cleaning cloth to remove ink dislodged from pipe connected at the print head, do this gently to remove any obstruction and there should not be too much mess and can easily be cleaned up.

HP photosmart C6280 when i printed photo on plain paper the color came out is original color., but if i using same setup and printed on photopaper , the color came out not true...pls help this...


The process is different for photos than for plain paper.
It is likely that one of your colors are not printing, probably one of your `light' colors. You can perform a `nozzle check' by using the menu on your printer. This shows you the colors that are printing, and whether they are printing correctly.
If you are using refilled ink, that could easily be the issue.
Try performing the printhead cleaning, again in the menu on your printer. If that does not work, try replacing the ink tank for the faulty color.
If none of this works, it is likely that the ink delivery system is cracked, a common problem in these models.
In this case, replace the printer.

Photosmart C5280. Instructions on photo cartridge 348 say remove both black and colour cartridges, then install photo cartridge in right hand cartridge holder. Printer screen then tells me to install...


Your printer uses the following cartridges:

HP 74 - Black ink
HP 75 - Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow ink
HP 99 - Photo Black, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta

You need Photo Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta to print photos. To accomplish this you install the HP 99 photo cartridge where your HP 74 black cartridge usually goes and you keep the HP 75 color cartridge where it's at. I don't know why your printer told you to remove both cartridges, then reinstall the HP 75 color cartridge.

I am trying to print 4*6 pictures on c6280 from my Apple PC. No matter what settings I ask for it pulls the paper from the 8.5*11. How do I set it to print 4*6 pictures?


Hi, It senses the size of paper you put in the tray, that is if you have placed A4 paper, that is what it will use. Options are, use 6*4 paper or print 2 up on A4. To use 6*4 paper raise the paper tray and then pull out the photo tray. If you can't follow this, go to http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01150745.pdf

HP Photosmart C6280 paper jam--won't print (of course), message reads 'add paper to main tray'


Please try this to clear the paper jam

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.
