Question about HP C6280 All-in-One Printer

1 Answer

HP C6280 will not print self test diagnostic

What is the usual diagnosis or outcome when an HP won't print a correct Self Test Diagnostic, containing diagnostic data, from the control panel? It printed it one (won't print another because of multiple errors), but was missing ALL data from boxes & sections of 2 pg. report - except color sample boxes (looked fine).........Gone through usual printer reset steps: power reset; clearing hardware error codes. That clears 1 (or more) errors, but they re appear........The errors just rotate - clear 1, another pops..... Carriage or paper jam (neither true);... ink system failure (printed perfect text, lines & color boxes on self test);... pump motor stalled.... DON'T think ink motor is stalled or not working. Printed perfect lines, headings & color boxes on self test.... With top cover off, can see all pump gears, belt turning normally in warm up. Pump sounds normal during printer prep. Is it just fried? Had a power outage - but it was on surge protector, ALONG w/ modem, router, VOIP ATA, PC. None were damaged....Plugged printer into wall outlet - no change.

Do you have an Anti-Virus program installed on your PC? If so, can you try and disable it before you print.

Hello.

Give this a try (from HP Support):

Solution 1:

1. Press and hold "left arrow" key
2. Press the "setup" key and release both keys
3. Press and release the "OK" button
4. Press and release the right arrow button until the display says "System Configuration Menu". 2. Press and release the "OK" button.
5. Display should say "Hardware failure status". If not there already, Arrow Key over to "Hardware failure status",
6. Press and release the "OK" button.
7. Display should say "Hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear".
8. Press and release the "OK" Button. Message changes to "Hardware failure status Cleared. Press Cancel to continue".
9. 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.
10. Using the Power Button, turn the unit OFF and unplug the power cable from back of the printer and wall outlet.
11. 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
12. Turn the unit on. The printer may display message "USE POWER BUTTON TO SHUTDOWN THE PRINTER" followed by "PRESS OK TO CONTINUE". Press OK.
13. If the printer has already initialized, then go to the next step. If not, 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.
14. To verify printer functionality print a SELF TEST PAGE. If SELF TEST prints, then printer is ready for use or Software Installation.

Why does my HP Deskjet F4280 Show an E in the Start/Copy screen??


Regarding your recent inquiry about the HP 60 cartridge error message ("E in display window") and inability to print with your HP Deskjet F4280 printer, this type of error is normally associated to an electrical connection issue between the printer and the cartridge, or more likely, an internal micro-electronic failure inside the cartridge itself (please note that it is very rare for both ink cartridges to electrically fail at the same time). An electronic failure of the cartridge would be unrelated to the ink cartridge refill process; these same failures can (and frequently do) occur with brand new ink cartridges.* To help identify the root cause, please run the 'Tap 41' cartridge's electrical / diagnostic tests below (refer to B. and C), this will identify which ink cartridge is causing the issue:

NOTE: Unfortunately, alignment pages and internal self test prints will usually print Ok even if the cartridge is internally electrically damaged. Do not use these test pages as a proxy for determining whether a cartridge is good or bad, only the 'Tap 41/43' diagnostic test report can yield this information.

As a temporary workaround, or if you are unable to determine which cartridge is causing the issue, remove one of the ink cartridges from the printer....this might place the printer into the 'single cartridge printer mode'....print jobs may then be executed from the computer (only):

An internal electrical failure of a cartridge can be confirmed by performing the following corrective/diagnostic steps:

A.Ensure BOTH carriage/flex cables and BOTH ink cartridge contacts are thoroughly clean before proceeding: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519

B.Validate the cartridge's electrical health by running the 'Tap 41' diagnostics test. Refer to DIAGNOSTIC TAP 41 video procedure at the following link on how to activate and read the service test:

http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=440 (HP 60 - Deskjet F2400/F4400/F4500 models)
    1.While holding the Power button, press Cancel (X) button 4 times, then press the Color Copy button once.
    2.Release the Power button.
    3.The 'Tap 41' diagnostic test print should print.

    http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=444 (HP 60 - Deskjet F4200 model)
      1.While holding the Power button, press Cancel (X) button 4 times, then press the 'Resume' button once.
      2.Release the Power button.
      3.The 'Tap 41' diagnostic test print should print.

        --- Providing the color cartridge is partially functioning the Tap 41 diagnostic test print will be printed (this is a forced service print test which is mainly used for the evaluation of ink cartridge electrical health). A good HP 60/60XL color cartridge should display 1248 good nozzles, while a good HP 60/60XL black ink cartridge should show 336 good nozzles. If the results yield anything different then the ink cartridge is likely damaged and will need to be replaced. Refer to 2nd video on how to read the printout.
        http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=440 (HP 60 - Deskjet F2400/F4400/F4500 models)
        http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=444 (HP 60 - Deskjet F4200 model)

        ---- If the printer attempts to print the diagnostic test pattern (1 page) then the printer is generally considered operational and functional, if nothing is printed, but the printer attempts to print the pattern, then the tri-color ink cartridge is either empty, clogged or severely electrically damaged (black ink cartridge is not used). You can remove the tri-color cartridge, reactivate the tap 41 test and the printer will print the diagnostic test print in black ink.

Printer Photosmart 8450. Using HP black cartridge. Received message saying the printer did not recognize the cartridge because it was not HP. Removed it and tried several times to print. Gave up and...


Regarding your HP94 black ink cartridge error problem and inability to print to your HP PS 8450 printer, this type of problem is probably an internal micro-electronic failure inside the HP94 ink cartridge.

To determine which cartridge is causing the issue and/or to confirm an electrical problem with one of the ink cartridges (or possibly both), perform both the Internal Self-Test page along with the Pen Electrical tests (diagnostics) to evaluate the electrical condition of both ink cartridges....

Please first verify the age of the ink cartridge(s)....look at imprinted date on front (or back) of ink cartridge. If this 'warranty expiration date' has expired, then potential cartridge failures can occur due to internal corrosion, etc.

A. Ensure BOTH carriage/flex cables and BOTH ink cartridge contacts are thoroughly clean before proceeding: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1519

B. Print Self-Test Page:
1. Press CANCEL and SAVE simultaneously (SAVE is the left-most button before POWER on/off.)
2. Using left/right arrow keys, navigate to 'pen electrical test'.
3. Select Enter to print test - evaluate nozzle test pattern.

-- If the printer prints the self test page then this demonstrates the printer is generally functional and that the problem is likely with one of the ink cartridges. Please note this is a 'forced' service test...the printer will attempt to print the test page whether the cartridges are good or bad. If the Self-Test page can be successfully printed but regular/normal printing cannot, then one of the ink cartridges is likely internally damaged. Remove and replace suspect cartridge to confirm.

C. Perform Cartridge Diagnostics tests using either C.1 or C.2 procedure below (varies by printer model):

C.1. Tap 41/43 Diagnostics Test:
1. To enter the Manufacturing Tests menu, press the 3 small, round buttons on the front panel simultaneously for >5secs: 'OK', 'CANCEL', & 'SELECT PHOTOS' (or 'Print Photos')
2. Using left/right arrow keys, navigate to Special Reports (or System Menu). Select Enter.
3. Navigate to 'print-mech button tap' menu.
4. Select Ok ('code = 0' will be displayed); click and hold Right Arrow until 'code = 41' (or attempt 'code = 43' if nothing prints using '41') is displayed.
5. Select Ok. Within one minute the Tap 41 (or 43) diagnostic test pattern should be initiated and print. Refer to video to help evaluate test pattern. Refer to 2nd video for guidance on how to read the diagnostic test pattern: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1741


NOTE 1: A good HP 93/95/97/99 color cartridge should display 600 good nozzles, while a good HP 92/94/96/98 black ink cartridge should show 672 good nozzles. If the results yield anything different then the ink cartridge is likely damaged and will need to be replaced. For reference only, refer to the following HP Deskjet video which shows how to read the HP 93-97 ink cartridge diagnostic test print: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1741 (see 2nd video)

C.2. Pen Electrical / Error Bypass Procedure:
1. To enter the Manufacturing Tests menu, press the 3 small, round buttons on the front panel simultaneously for >5secs: 'OK', 'CANCEL', & 'SELECT PHOTOS' (or 'Print Photos')
2. Using left/right arrow keys, navigate to Reports Menu (or System Menu). Select 'pen electrical test'.
3. Select Level 1, 2, or 3. Enter to print test - evaluate nozzle electrical test print.


NOTE 2: Pen recovery level 1, 2 or 3 clears cartridge errors, unblocking the printer to permit you to print the TEST PAGE with the normal MENU / TOOLS /PRINT TEST PAGE choice to aid in printer evaluation.


NOTE 3: Cartridge Error Bypass Message (Emergency Printing only): The Pen Recovery Level 1 clears cartridge errors and permits you to print the TEST PAGE with the normal MENU / TOOLS / PRINT TEST PAGE choice.
