My C7280 is practically new and was a shelf display model . Since I have started using it any printing coming from the desktop PC is slightly inclined however when a calibration is done with the colours being printed off by the printer the alignment is perfect. What can I do???

Did the PC recognised the printer? If YES, then click on "Start" followed by clicking "Printers and Faxes" if your PC's OS is WIN XP or WIN 7 but if your PC's OS is WIN VISTA, you will go like this "Start" - "Control Panel" - "Hardware and Sounds" - "Printers". When you get to where all the printers installed on your PC are displayed, go to the printer you want to use, right click on the very printer and select the option that say "Set as Default Printer". Close everything and enjoy your printing!!!
This means there's a failure in your printer's pump motor.
If you are still under warranty, contact HP's Customer Service here : http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/wwcontact_us.html
If not, you can try your local computer store for a check-up but they'll probably suggest a new printer.
Hope this helped.

It's possible that your print cartridge needs cleaning.
1. Turn on your computer, wait for it to boot up, then turn on your printer and load with paper.
2. Double click the "HP Imaging Director" icon on your desktop.
3. On the screen that appears, click the "Settings" subheading, scroll down to "Print Settings and
over to "Printer Toolbox" and click on it.
4. After clicking on "Printer Toolbox", click on "Clean the Print Cartridges" button and wait for
the printer to complete it's operation, afterwards, print a test page to check the results.
If this operation does not solve your problem, I suggest changing the print cartridge and see
if this helps.
The ink system failure message has a chance to be fixed or it may be a permanent issue. It can be pointing toward a firmware failure in the printer and if that is the case the following steps should fix it. Press and hold the ?*? key. Press the ?#? key and release both keys. Display should say ?Enter Special Key Combo? Press and release in sequence the "1?, ?2? and ?3? buttons. Display should say ?Support? and display the FW rev (something like R0631R) Mine reads R0631M . Press and release the right arrow button until the display says ?System Configuration Menu?. Press and release the ?OK? button. Display should say ?Hardware failure status?. If not there already, Arrow Key over to ?Hardware failure status?, Press and release the ?OK? button. Display should say ?Hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear?. Press and release the ?OK? Button. Message changes to ?Hardware failure status Cleared. Press Cancel to continue?. Press and release the ?CANCEL? button as many times as necessary, so that, either the ?Welcome to Photosmart Express? screen appears, or, the ?Ink System Failure? screen appears. PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO PRINT AT THIS STAGE. Using the Power Button, turn the unit OFF and unplug the power cable from back of the printer and wall outlet. Wait 30 seconds for the power to get discharged and then plug the power cable into the wall outlet first and then into the back of the printer. Turn the unit on. The printer may display message ?USE POWER BUTTON TO SHUTDOWN THE PRINTER? followed by ?PRESS OK TO CONTINUE?. Press OK. The Printer will start the ?ONE TIME INK INITIALIZATION PROCESS?. Allow this process to complete and do not interrupt. Once the initialization process is complete, the printer will print out a Diagnostic Page. Good Luck!
run the wireless setup wizard on the printer from the front panel menus of the printer...this would assign an IP address to the printer from the router...then use the s/w cd that came along with the printer and get the drivers and s/w installed on your computer....if you want a wireless connection it would give you approprite options
Something is wrong with your Blach carrier or connections. Use a bit of alcohol and clean the array of gold contacts where the Ink cartridge plugs in. Most of the pins are shutter and piezo control (get the ink on paper) but a few do other stuff like check ink level, # of hours runtime, etc. This is very common problem with inkjet printers. Hope this helps. Also... rub the contacts on the printhead with a pencil eraser to make them shiny and bright.
You can try a reset on the printer using the # and the number 6,holding them down while plugging in the power cord at the back of the printer.if the problem again comes up try thesame with # and the number 9 buttons see if it works,else get your printer serviced
