Is it tasty? never had that type of jam!

If the ink carrier jambs then wipe the rails with a damp cloth to remove built up ink. Make sure power is off when you do this. Return power to the unit and ensure all cartridges are seated correctly. As you turn on the power the cartridge carrier unlocks and begins to move. quickly turn the power off at wall switch, and manually move the carriage to the left so you can clean the rails where the carriage rests. Then gently return the carriage to its resting spot and turn the power back on. This should now work correctly. Keep the rails clean and it shouldn't happen again. If this did not fix it it will need to be sent back to a repair shop

Hello !

Your print driver may be corrupted. So, give this a try:

Delete your AIO icon from Printers and Faxes

Download the latest driver for your operating system from here:


Disconnect your USB printer cable

Restart your computer

Reconnect your USB printer cable

Your computer should see your AIO and install the new driver.

If your computer does not see your AIO, your USB printer cable is faulty or try another USB port on your computer.

Hope this helps.

You need to uninstall your printer, then reinstall the newer version of software (can be gotten at the HP site). I just did it and now my scanner works.


I hope this gets you scanning again....

I can no longer print from my Mac to my HP Photosmart C4280. This happened after changing the ink. My HP icons are no longer in menu bar either. When I try to print the HP makes a loud noise and shoots the paper through at rocket speed with terrible print quatlity.

It is true, the ink of the previous print CAN damage the printer's ink heads.

Follow these instructions to troubleshoot the connection. It may help to download and install the latest hp drivers if this problem recently appeared for no reason...
If this is a new installation, you have to follow the HP procedures to make sure you only hook up the USB cable when prompted by the software, or the installation will fail. See this article for xp, this one for vista installation instructions.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
