Page misalignment (tilt)

After replacing the black ink cartridge, page copies from the C4280 Photosmart printer are slightly askew. The cartridge alignment procedure did not rectify the problem. Any ideas ?

    Prints askew. From the alignment page it does that.

    Check the grey retainer in the back of printer is correctly positioned. At the rear of printer is a large recess. There is a grey plastic retainer about 6 inches long x 2 inches deep, used when you need to clear paper jams. It has two plastic points that fit into the holes on rhs. Pullout retainer and replace so that it is firmly in position

Printer will not recognize new blk ink cartridge.

I think either the printer's scanner(or film as some call it) and/or the carriage is faulty. The signal cable that connects the carriage to the logic board could also be a suspect. Try replacing these items one after another and the culprit will be isolated. Good luck.

The cartridge is not seated properly and/or the contacts are dirty. Use a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol and gently clean both the copper contacts on the cartridge and inside the cartridge socket. Allow several minutes to dry and then try again.

C4280 printer photo cartridge instalation help

The extra cartridge you bought was probably the number 99 cartridge, if I'm not mistaken.

The cartridge actually replaces your black cartridge. Inside of the cartridge has black ink as well as the special photo ink.

I hope this helps
