Re: Photosmart C7200 PUMP MOTOR STALLED!

Hi larry1935,

Try performing a hard reset. Unplug the power cord from back of printer while it is ON. Then unplug it also from the power source. Reconnect to wall outlet then printer after a minute.

You can also try to remove the cartridges out of the printer, close the door and press OK. If there's a cartridge error on it, reinstall the cartridges on the printer and press OK. That should clear it!

Let me know how it goes...
Cheers! Smiley Happy

Re: Photosmart C7200 PUMP MOTOR STALLED!

I am having this same problem - the reset doesn't work.  


It is making a sound like 'sprockets' are resetting and then getting caught.  I cannot find any paper in the machine after following a tutorial on this printer.

Re: Photosmart C7200 PUMP MOTOR STALLED!


I'm still getting a error on my C7200 printer, pump motot stalled.

I tryed unplugging power cord from back of the printer and then from the wall. I waited acouple minutes and repluged wall first, as the instructions advised and tryed again to print with no change.


i tryed the second fix by plulling all the printer cartridges while printer on, saited a few minutes put them back in and didn't get a error, but did come up saying cartridges missing. Then I press OK.


There was no change, pump motor salled still comes on the screen??  Please help with a different fix!

Can you send me a print out of the inter parts of the of the printer showing and labeling. Where is the pump motor??

Could it need replacing??


Please help!!!!

Hello Jwhopkins2001,

I understand you are seeing an error message stating "Pump Motor Stalled" on your Photosmart C7200 series printer.

This error code is usually a fatal error on the printer, however, I suggest trying the troubleshooting document below to attempt to help with the error.

If the error persists, I would then suggest calling HP's Technical Support to see if they have any other options for you.
