I have a C7280 printer with same results.
I contacted HP support in another issue (print to a page with a "border" on it and it takes the end of the border as the start of the page) and all I got was a runaround. Try this, try that, re-install, what kind of network, try this app, that app and on and on and on. Obviously HP, with their outsourcing, no longer cares about having quality products, or even hearing about problems. They just set up outsourcing people to frustrate the consumer.
I won't buy another HP product.

I have a little different twist to the same problem - Ink washing from my printed DVDs. Started to begin a new thread but a solution to the problems noted here will solve mine also.
I was amazed at the quality of printing directly onto DVDs using my 5250. So I don't want a new ink or different printer. What I want is a way to stabalize the ink once the DVD is printed. One of the DVDs that I printed began skipping and I saw fingerprints on the readable side so I took it to the sink for a good cleanup - WOAH!! That's when I learned the weakness of the water soluble ink. I Googled to try to find a solution and there actually are a couple of products (lacquers) that claim to stabalize the ink on CD/DVD's printed with ink jet printers. Unfortunately they are all in Europe and I'm fresh out of Euros.
Has anyone found a product that will stabalize the ink - either one marketed for that purpose or that is marketed for something else but works. I haven't tried hairspray yet but I figure that if it washes off in the shower (it better) then it'll probably not withstand a good soap & water cleansing in my sink.

Good luck in contacting HP. I have tried this and got nowhere. They only give you the runaround of using photo paper to replacing ink cartridges. I have even told HP support that there is a forum thread (this one) of not just me but of others having the same problem. They completely ignored that.
I've had HP's but this one using the Vivera Ink is the only one that runs. The older HP's I've had, I never had this problem no matter what paper I used.
Anyway good luck lindachopkinton in getting anywhere with them.
