The transport on this printer C5280 is blocked.  It seems to be very close to its place natural resing, but not altogether and do not manually move in both directions.  The machine also will turn off.  I unplugged the power to judge so that he can reset and nothing changes.  Any ideas?


Hi jimdykstra,

  • I have a HP Photosmart C8180 printer on the printer screen it displays C2FF8575.

    I have a HP Photosmart C8180 printer.  On the printer screen, it displays C2FF8575.  It won't turn off, unless I unplug islet that my Undo button keeps flashing. What does all this mean?

    The code of C2FF8575 refers to a fatal mistake in the firmware of the printer. The only thing you can do when this error is a hard reset. I will include the instructions below. If this does not work, you will need to replace the printer. If you are still in warranty, HP can replace the printer without cost to you. I'll link the information to get in touch with them below. The link takes you to a form to fill out. Once you fill it and she is treated, it will give you the printers warranty information, a file number and the phone number to call.

    HP Technical Support call case form:

    To do a hard reset:
    1. make sure that the printer is turned on.
    2. pull on the power cord from the printer.
    3. pull out the power cord from the wall.
    4. wait for 30 seconds.
    5. plug in the printer and turn it on.

  • Rollers which collects the paper in my Photosmart C5280 printer make any movement.

    I have cleaned the rollers, checked the settings, changed the paper, dusted off the printer, but rolls that are supposed for the paper do not move, and the printer gives me a message 'Out of Paper' and do not print.  Any suggestions?  He is an all-in one Photosmart C5280, running on Windows XP, directly connected to the computer.

    If the entry of paper rolls do not move, then it is possible there is something stuck in it or the sensors that control are having a problem.

    * I start by remove all paper from the paper tray and check at the front and the back of the printer to make sure nothing is caught in the rollers

    * Hard Reset the printer by unplugging the unit while it is turned on, wait 30 seconds and plug it back to.

    Thus, there is a document provided by HP with the steps to resolve when a printer does not have paper in the unit.  The document can be accessed here.

    I hope this helps.

  • I have a Dell (Dell V305) printer that is only a year. He has been guaranteed. What was happenning, is that the printer does not print up what I uninstall/reinstall.

    I'm having a problem with my printer does not print.  What I do I uninstall the printer and reinstall then it works very well for a week or two and then the problem starts again until I have reinstall the printer again.  The printer has ink, so it's not the problem. That's how I know it does not print: when I try to print a cartridge level page show empty and I can't print.  Yet once, when I uninstall/reinstall the printer, then the catridge levels show complete and then I can print.  I thought that maybe it could be that some issue that when I uninstall the printer that not all components are removed.  I uninstall not uninstall printer functionality and not the Add/Remove Control Panel.  Uninstall from the control panel would solve this problem?  Please notify.  Thank you, John

  • Photosmart C5280 print black vertical lines on documents.

    Any program you print from, lines appear. They also appear on the Windows Test Page. However, they do not appear when a test page is printed to the printer.

    I tried to install the printer on another computer, but the same thing happens. Head cleaning and alignment do not help. I scanned a wonky page to give a bit of an idea of what's going on. Then I tried different print settings, fast/project, general, of the word and the printer prints correctly again. Windows Page of Test prints correctly also. This is the second time this problem occurred. The Chuck and buy a new one?

    Operating system is Windows 7 Enterprise 32-bit.

  • I have a HP Officejet K550dtn printer that won't print black

    They gave me this printer.  Everything seems to work OK except the black does not print!

    I checked the print HP 88XL cartridge and it seems to be fairly complete and I pierced the small seal on the cartridge to make sure it doesn't have ink and mass and the black liquid on the needle, the ink supply seems functional.  I don't know how this is supposed to weigh when complete... so that the info would be useful.

    I can't the printhead to move to the position of LHS, following the directions in the Self-Help, I found on the web.  I was able to do it once but it won't now work for some reason any.

    I tried the printhead cleaning online to see if it works and it spits out about 20 + pages with NO black on them.

    I tried 10 tap without help and tried 6 tap and this is where it goes through 20 + pages without stopping and no black.

    Want to try manual cleaning the print heads, but cannot get them to move to the LHS.

    I know that the tube containing the set of 3 colors and black cartridge print head are very thin and long (design?), but could not see anything that is crimped or any other problem with the tube.

    I noticed that when the printer is turned on color cartridge lights are "on" while the HP 88XL is not... What is that saying?

    I don't want to spend a lot on getting that BIG BOY working so any help is appreciated...

    Thank you


    When the printhead moves to halfway to the left unplug power supply and remove the printhead and the printer, then turn on.

    I'm the horizontal through all my photos that I feel.  How can I solve this problem?  The color is very good in the photos, but I need to stop the horizontal lines through the print job how.


    Glad to know that the first problem has been resolved.

    For the second question since his impression that you tried increasing the font on the computer, because the impression is dependent on the computer and the application used for printing.
