    Since purchasing and installing a new C5280 All-in-One printer I have been unable to print selected pages out of a multipage document. I go through the normal FGile, Print, Pages procedure and it totally ignores the request. Has it messed up my Operating software of Microsoft Office or Windows XP and if so what can I do?

    I have the same problem. I took my computer and printer into the shop where they uninstalled and reinstalled all the software. That made it work for a week, but now I'm back where I started.

I had a problem with my C5280 installing another copy of itself when I restarted my computer. Check to see that you don't have multiple copies installed and are possibly trying to print to the wrong one.

HP C5280 all in one prints but does not scan

2 ways to scan from HP printers

First* try from "my computer" ... near the bottom of the page you should see "scanners" in there, try clicking that and follow prompts

Second* go to start/ programs/ HP/ HP Solution Center
all scanning choices should be on the left

Just check the rollers for debris or any tiny piece of paper. Sometimes using refilled cartridges also can cause this error. Should that not work, you could try a hard reset: unplug printer from pc and mains. wait about 10-15 minutes and while holding down the power button, connect to mains and tho pc. Hopefully that should work.
