pump motor stalled error message on Photosmart C5180 and C6280

When I turn on my printers, one is a Photosmart C5180, the second is a Photosmart C6280, I receive an error message saying "Pump motor stalled". If I switch off and on again, this sometimes clears. Anyone else experienceed this on two printers. Both only use HP Original Ink Cartridges.

Re: pump motor stalled error message on Photosmart C5180 and C6280

Is there any way to fix my HP C5100 printer when I have an error that the Pump Motor has stalled?  I've tried turning off, Utilities, etc.  Help please.

Re: pump motor stalled error message on Photosmart C5180 and C6280

I´ve had same problem and tried all solutions recomended. But it never worked.

Frustrated and about to throw the C6280 out the window, i´d tought ill go all in on cheking gear and pullies.

I noticed that two of the gears, located left on the printhead, could move! They are conected to a black plastic lever and where stuck in wrong position, which i got confirmed it was, since the printer worked flawlessly after i corrected them.

Try it, it´s easy to find just open the lid and gently pull the gears, it´s more or less selfexplanetory how they should sit.

Hi. I am having the same problem. I would like a more detailed explanation of how to fix the gears on the printhead or any other suggestions on how to get my printer to print again. (I have a c6280 and I've tried to power it off, unplug it, etc.) Thanks.
