Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies
I had this same problem with my c6280.
I got fed up (HP only added frustration) and decided to trash it and buy something new.
So I figured I would take it apart and see if it was something obvious, worst thing that could happen was that the printer would not work - allready there.
Here is what I found.
Taking the covers off of this printer is not easy, but after removing all accessable screws I was able to get the covers off.
I found the pump motor on the left side of the printer (it is labled).
The pump motor has a large (approx 2 in) gear on it that is drivin by a belt with teeth.
The other end of the belt is drivin by a small (approx 3/8 in) gear.
There are two belt tensioners on each side of the belt.
PROBLEM; The belt was not riding on one of the tensioners.
This causes the belt to intermitenly engage the gears (stalled pump motor).
I put the belt back on the tensioner, put the covers back on (a real pain).
Printer now works fine.
I think that this may have been a problem out of the box because the lound clicking noise that came with the printer has also gone away.
