Installation problem with hp 05280 printer
There are many variations on problems with HP printer install. A crude method which worked for me on 2 occasions was simply to pull printer power cord out and reinsert after 30 secs. The installation may then complete. This is suggested by HP but you may not have tried it.
I have had many of problems with HP printer installs on different PCs and OS versions. In some cases if you just install the drivers only and ignore the bloated software that comes with them you can get a working setup. Use other applications for scanning etc..
I have had HP printers working fine only for XPSP3 to come along and render them useless.
Following HPs instructions for level 188.8.131.52 uninstall and reinstall may work also. Firewall and antivirus off is strogly advised.

HP Photosmart C5280 Mac: how to print only in black and white
Depending on your printer software there are two different methods to set grayscale and black ink only.
- Inside printer preferences, you switch to the Features tab. Here you should see grayscale in the bottom left corner. Once grayscale is selected you may switch quality to black ink only. Then press ok.
- In printer preferences, you click on the Advanced button. You should see a "Print in grayscale" option set to "Off" switch it to grayscale or black ink only and press ok.
As for with a Mac when you open the print dialog depending on the application there may be a link at the bottom left for the system print dialog. Here you should see a preset option. There is a fast draft black ink only preset. Save that preset and it should become the default option.

HP Photosmart 7525 printing blank pages
Do a hard reset of the printer . Since you can print out a status report that indicates that the hardware and cartridges are good but that the software or electronics, may be bogus.
If you go to HP they will refer you to a forum or advise you to get a new printer -an HP, of course!
