Question about HP Photosmart C7280 Printer

Open Question

I have a HP C7280 All in One printer. Until recently printer has been working fine. Then when it was turned on, the panel all lit up and started flashing with the following codes appearing (it's happening every time we switch-on) on the screen - 'B800015C' and 'B3B78D68'. When flashing is happening we can not do anything with the printer, not even to turn it off. We have to unplug the power. Next time we switch on, we get message about not being shut down properly and then the flashing panel starts again. We appear to be going round in circles, getting nowhere. Has anyone got an answer, please. Steve.

HP C7280 ink system failure error: 0xc18a0101


just had this exact issue with my C7280. I called HP Tech support, got a body in Bangalore or someplace, and was pleasantly surprised that they were prompt and knowledgeable, and solved the issue very quickly after transferring my call one time to a hardware support expert.

Here are the details. Got the Ink System Failure message. The error code shows was '0xc18a0005'. The tech had me press and hold the '*' key on the key pad, then press the '#' key and release them both. Then he had me enter '123' to enter maintenance mode. He then had me press the right arrow (beside the OK button) until System Config. menu appeared on panel. Then pressed OK two times to clear the error condition, then cancel two or three times to return to the top menu. Then powered off and back on, printed a test page just fine, copied a document fine.

I hope this help those who have similar issues

The "window" on my C7280 photosmart HP printer has died. Is this an easy fix? I'm talking about the lit up window on the left that guides me through scanning, faxing etc - for entering the fax number, how...


Are you referring to the Options that Printer would provide from its Screen ? Like Scan to Email, Scan to Document ?

If so, it is likely that the drivers are corrupted or there is no 2 way communication between the printer and PC

Open Solution Center on PC
click on Setting
Click on Scan to Buttons
Click on Destination list
Check if the Right panel is empty or full.
IF Empty, Select the options you want from Left panel and set it on Right panel

IF the Panel is Not Empty, You would need to uninstall and reinstall the software as some updates have failed or some updates were not correctly installed

To uninstall the Software, you can run the software disk and click uninstall ( later restart the PC )

To download the latest Software drivers for your printer, click on this link and choose the operating system and download the full feature software and start the installation

HP Photosmart C7280 All-in-one has stopped printing. Window just keep saying Shutting Down What next?


Just unplug it, wait a few seconds, then plug it in again. That should fix the problem.
I had the same problem - my Photosmart C7280 AIO displayed "Shutting Down" message all night, and would not respond to any buttons on the control panel, even holding down the Power On/Off button got no response. I was worried about a couple of ink cartridges that it had warned were low before I tried to shut down, so I replaced those.
After looking in the manual and online for troubleshooting help from HP and others, and finding nothing but a suggestion to unplug it (not on an HP site), I finally did unplug it, after first disconnecting the USB cable to prevent any trouble due to interaction with my Mac. Then I aited about 30 seconds, plugged it back in, turned it on, and it started up fine, with no apparent problem.

Unable to add a functioning (second) printer, for greyscale.


Clicked on Start/Control Panel/PrinterI. Clicked Add a printer. Obtained (Copy 1) of my HP Photosmart C7280 all-in-one printer. Right clicked on (Copy 1)/properties. Opened Ports tab. Saw comment "Print to the following Ports. Documents will print to the first free checked port." A listed USB Virtual printer port, showed three printers -- my first printer, my copy 1 (& my fax printer) -- was unchecked. I placed a checkmark in this Port box. Both the original printer, and my copy 1 printer are printing just fine. *I have not checked to verify that my fax is functional.
I did rename the original "color". I renamed Copy 1 as "grayscale", and --under printer preferences, checked, under "color options", to print in greyscale.
