Question about HP Photosmart C7280 Printer

1 Answer

One more try. My C7280 printer makes terrible noises when it pulls the paper through for printing. I have tried reinserting the back part where I clear paper jams, but it does not help. Also this printer has a paper jamming problem that other HP printers I've owned never had. It jams about every 20th page or so.

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.

Pump motor stalls in my HP printer


When an inkjet printer is making "awful noises" it means that there is either a paper jam or the carriage can't move properly. Remove all paper and check for a paper jam - if this is not the problem, turn off the printer and see if you can move the print cartridge carrier by hand. If it is hard to move, clean the shiny carriage rod with a cloth and put just a drop of light oil on it. Move the carriage back and forth and clean it again - repeat until it moves easily and add a final drop of oil to the rod.

When i am printing it make a wierd clicking noise, i have replaced the ink in it, and it still won't print properly, it only prints 1/2 lines. I have cleaned the cartridge. Please help


Sounds like something is rubbing somewhere that shouldn't be, so if it continues there is certainly some damage being done.The vacuum suction can sometimes make terrible noise, esp. on rc-papers like Premium Luster et al.
Try to lower "Paper Suction" in the print driver.

Paper feed jams


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

I have installed the HP Photosmart C7280 All-in-One and tried to print an article off the computer. I have paper loaded in the tray-I get a message Out of Paper. Load paper face down in Main Tray. What's...


I experienced the same problem on a HP Photosmart C7280 All-in-one printer. The problem was that the light-blue plastic piece, which covers half of the printing paper tray, had gotten out of alignment with the gray piece which covers the other half of the paper stack. Pull the blue plastic tray out and align it properly.
