Question about HP Photosmart C7280 Printer
Without hearing the noise or having a description other than "horrible", I'd say probably the pickup clutch or the gears that turn it are having an issue and need to be replaced.
To my knowledge you can't order either of these parts (it's not like the good old days) but at least it's replacement is on sale at the moment for $79.99 from HP.COM (probably what you'd have to pay to get yours fixed at a shop).
the D110A is the least expensive photosmart all in one at the moment.
Keep your 7280 as a scanner though if the ADF (auto document feeder) is important to you when scanning, the D110A is flatbed only.
