Question about HP Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

My HP Photosmart C4280 works OK for copying & scanning but will not print from a web page intermittently. I've had it uninstalled & reinstalled twice by tech. support in Capetown taking several HOURS on the phone, & now uninstall & reinstall it myself ! Such a waste of time ! What am I or my computer doing wrong ??

Not quite sure what you mean when you say, "will not print froma web page intermittently". Do you mean it sometimes doesn't print a web page at all or that the print out isn't what you want? Also, there is an additional issue if you are using Microsoft Windows Vista (as opposed to another Windows operating system).

Without more information, the following links to information on HP's web site for your printer is the best I can do:

Printing Web Pages in Vista

Only Parts of Web Pages Print

Unwanted Web Page Backgrounds Print

If one of these works, please post back which one was the correct solution. If not, please post more details about the problem. Thanks.

HP Printer C4280 says "USB not connected"


Install software that is twain compliant.
Maybe the HP bundle that came with the printer.
Also Paint Shop Pro,Adobe Acrobat.Photoshop etc.
Use the usb cable after the install of the HP drivers then you may change the default location of where scans are saved.

The copy function prints a solid black page?


Do you see the light going all the way across? The printer may be having power issues. You should make sure it is plugged into the wall and not into a surge protector or a power strip.

If the light is not coming on then there is an issue with the scanner bulb and if the printer is plugged into the wall then you should call hp and see if you can have it replaced.

Can only print on the printer's copy


sir try uninstalling the whole old printer program on the add/remove icon on the control panel... then reinstall the software again... this is because in the process of installing the printer the software is scanning the installed printer... is not because you have the same unit as before they are one same unit... i mean they still differ on parts model and serial numbers so the OS still need to recognize the new printer installed...

hope this helps...
