Question about HP Photosmart C7280 Printer

1 Answer

Response by Ezrahite did not fit the printer but, rather, describe earlier HP printers with ink cartridges fitted on a carriage and movable. the HP C7280 has six fixed ink cartridges - immovable and not on a carriage. So his solution did not fit the problem Do I get another response that is designed specifically for this partcular printer with an intermittent error message of ink system failure??

I am looking for a color access door for a print carriage on an hp psc2210 all in one printer. (C8654A)


  1. If you are putting in a new cartridge, make sure to remove the tape.
  2. Turn on the unit, then open the print carriage access door. The print carriage moves to the center of the unit.
  3. Fit the cartridge into the proper carriage.
    • The carriage with the gray latch is for the black ink cartridge (HP 56), or the optional photo cartridge (HP 58).
    • The carriage with the blue latch is for the tri-color cartridge (HP 57).
    Slide the cartridge into the carriage at a slight angle, as shown in the illustration above. When the cartridge is fully inserted into the carriage, rock it upright.
  4. Hold the hinged flap of the latch out while lowering the latch.
  5. When the latch is fully lowered, release the hinged flap. It should catch under the tabs on the carriage, as shown in the illustration.
  6. Close the cartridge access door.
  7. The LCD display may indicate that the cartridges need to be aligned. Press Enter on the front panel. You may discard the alignment page that prints.
Remove cartridges
  1. Turn on the unit, then open the print carriage access door. The print carriage moves to the center of the unit.
  2. Press down lightly on the top of each ink cartridge latch and pull the lower section of the latch out to release the cartridge.
  3. Pull the cartridge out of the print carriage and relatch the empty print carriage. The print carriage may move to the right automatically, and if the latch is up, it could be damaged.

How to change ink in HP Deskjet F480 printer???


  • Check the ink levels by opening the HP Solution Center. Click on "Settings." Click on "Toolbox." Click on "Services." Click on "Service this device." Click on "Estimated Ink Levels." A graphic will appear showing the estimated ink level in each cartridge.
  • 2 Verify that the unit is on. Open the print cartridge door allowing the print carriage to move to the far right side of the unit. Once the print carriage has stopped, lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot. To replace the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left. To replace the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right. Place the cartridge in a plastic bag as it may still contain some residual ink and may leak.
  • 3 Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging. Remove the plastic tape by using the pull tab, being careful to not touch the copper-colored contacts or the ink nozzles under tape.
  • 4 Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Gently push the upper part of the print cartridge until it clicks into place. The tri-color print cartridge fits into the left slot. The black or photo print cartridge fits into the right slot.
  • 5 Close the print cartridge door. If the print cartridge alignment sheet prints, load it on the left front corner of the scanner glass with the top of the page to the left. Verify that there is plain paper loaded in the input tray, and then press the "Scan" button to align the printer.

    Having trouble fitting new ink cartridge


    Hi, when an ink cartridge runs low in your HP Officejet 5610 All-in-One printer, you will see a message on the printer's display screen. Faded-looking text or pictures also indicate low ink. Ensure print quality by replacing ink cartridges when they run low.

    Instructions

    Things You'll Need:

    * HP #27 or #56 black, #22 color or #58 color photo print cartridge, or compatible equivalent



    Turn printer on if it is off. Never attempt to change the ink cartridge if the printer is off. If it is off, it will not properly position or release ink cartridges, and attempting to change the ink cartridges may damage the printer.


    Open the print-carriage door, located on the right side of the printer. The print carriage will automatically move into the access area.

    Push down on the top edge of the cartridge you are replacing to pop it out of its slot. Remove the print cartridge and discard or recycle.


    Pull off the protective tape on the new print cartridge using the pink tab. Do not touch any part of the cartridge except the black plastic. Touching the contacts or ink nozzles under the protective tape can damage the cartridge and result in poor print quality.


    Hold the cartridge upright and push gently forward into the empty ink cartridge slot until it clicks.


    Close the print-carriage door.

    Hp c7820 printer 02 black catridge


    Open the printer and remove the ink. Clean around the ink carriage and the under the ink with alcohol and a cotton swab. Pay special attention to areas with copper contacts. Keep in mind too that some printers will not print, even with full ink, if the exact type of ink it expected you to have installed is not right. Double check that the ink is correct against the manual or written instructions inside the printer using the number not the shape or color of the cartridge. Not every cartridge that fits the printer necessarily works.

    Black will not prtint. All the colors print fine on my Brother MFC 465CN. Have already: 1. Changed black ink cartridge 2. Reloaded printer driver Almost seems like some deeper issues where it...


    GENERAL PRINTER TROUBLESHOOTING ADVISE:
    Open the printer and remove the ink. Clean around the ink carriage and the under the ink with alcohol and a cotton swab. Pay special attention to areas with copper contacts. If the printer has a cleaning option either on the printer itself through the menu system or on the computer through the print driver, you can use that afterwards. Some printers will let you re-run the cleaning utility several times. Keep in mind too that some printers will not print, even with full ink, if the exact type of ink it expects you to have is not installed. Double check that the ink is correct against the manual or written instructions inside the printer. Not every cartridge that fits the printer necessarily works.

    Cartridge jam...cartridge will not move to the left...stays right


    turn off the printer and manually move the ink cartridges to the position that you can remove the ink cartridge.
    turn on the printer without the ink cartridge. The printer will tell you, you need a ink cartridge, open the printer and insert the ink cartridge as described in the manual.

    Printer cartridge stalled


    Have you put in new ink cartridges?

    Get the printer to move the carriage away from the side where it normally rests. Look inside there, and beneath the rest area, sometimes there is a little rubber stamp that presses up against the cartridges. It usually is filled with dry ink. Take a wet paper tower (probably several of them) and try to get as much ink as you can up. Also, there is sometimes a little rubber wiper that cleans the printhead as it passes by. Make sure this is clean also.

    Now take the cartridges out. Get another clean paper towel, sopping with water. Press the nozzels down against it, but don't wipe. Just dab them, until you're getting some solid lines of ink on the towel.

    Then look for the pattern of copper colored dots on the cartridge. Clean this with alcohol, and then look inside the printer where these dots (contacts) would line up inside the carriage. There will be a smilar pattern of dimples. Clean these with alcohol, and let it dry. 

    If possible, you might want to try to fit a towel damp with water beneath the print carriage (where the paper runs through).  This collects a lot of ink sometimes.  Be careful not to force anything.
    Finally, put it all back together and try your print.

    Thankyou,
