Can not (re)install HP Solution Center in windows 7 (photosmart c6280)

check leads and connection points
once connected windows 7 should automatically detect your printer search for and install the drivers
click start control panel devices and printers if you see your printer right click on it
you might have to set it as your default printer
click start right click on computer device manager scrollto ports com & lpt
if you see a yellow question/exclamation mark ? ! or a red X a new driver will need to be installed
hope this helps

My HP Photosmart C6280 All in One will not scan or comes back as unable to scan or copy. I have reinstalled the full feature software

Its not software issue,for copying you need not required any software just plug in power & take copy, if copy is not happening, its definitely printer faulty only..
Open flat bed, check scan head,mechanism & cable,if found any breakage in mechanism,scan head or cable, replace it & check..If its difficulty for you submit unit in service center..

I have aHP Photosmart C6280 All-in-One Printer. Scanner.Copier. and my Computer fails to recognise the C6280. Iwould like to download the driver for thismodel of printer.


I understand your printer problem, if you are using XP, then please check to see if there are other printers on your computer that you may longer have. Go to your control panel and then click on printers. Delete any printers you no longer have.

Then go to add and remove programs and uninstall any programs associated with your HP printer.

Turn off your printer and unplug your printer from the computer.
Please go to the HP website by copying and pasting the below link into your web browser.
Select XP or other operating system, Vista or Windows 7 and download the driver / programs for your model printer, save to your desktop. Install program and about half way through the program will ask for you to plug in your printer and turn the power on. Follow the prompts.

If the installation advises that it cannot detect your printer, try another USB cable or port.

Go to HP's website (, click on Support & Drivers, do a search for "Photosmart C6280", click on "Photosmart C6280", download the drivers and software for Windows 7 (you'll need to know whether you've got the 32 or 64 bit version), then follow the install instructions.

HP Photosmart C6280 not visible as printeroption though installed

this will usually happen if you're disconnecting the USB cable from the computer and putting it back on a different USB ports. try to connect it to where it was working before. this is also true for other USB devices such as scanners and webcams

Our HP Photosmart C6280 All in One printer is giving me the Ink System Failure message, I have unplugged everything & taken out the ink cartridges & put them back in, same message...HELP!


Check out our web site at: Click on the printer repair link, we have a section under HP that gives a step by step guide to fix your printer. The problem is caused by air in the ink feed tubes and the guide shows you how to purge the lines. You should be back printing in less than 10 minutes.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.
