It does sound like it could be a cartridge issue. And, that would be the place to start. Replace the cartridge with another and see if you get the same results. If so, it is highly unlikely you have 2 defective cartridges. The other components to suspect are the carriage unit itself and more particularly the sensor on the right side of the carriage unit. Dirty encoder strips (thin mylar strip running behind the carriage) also can cause these problems as well as dirty encoder wheels. (Round mylar wheel on the left side of the machine attached to the pick up roller assembly.

I have serviced several of these types of machines and it is rare to have much go wrong with them. Often a good and thorough cleaning of the entire machine will bring it back to life.

If you find you are in need of parts for this machine check out the following website: PrinterFixer.net

Since how long the cartridge not used. As the ink is not coming out may be it get dried up.

Have you another cartridge to use in printer? Otherwise refill the cartridge again so that it can be used.

Sorry we cannot provide you much support in this, as it seems directly the case of non-use for a long time.

Hp 1280 cartridge is not moving at all


A common issue with HP ink jet printers is the encoder strip gets dirt or ink on it. It is a plastic strip that has vertical lines all across it. The strip goes from one side to the other. You can clean it with an alcohol swab.

Cartridge empty light


A few basic causes.

1. The cartridges you bought iwere not proper HP ones and many "clone" cartridges are known to have problems with the ink level chips

Take them back and get them replaced with a different brand

2. They are original cartridges but may still be faulty (rare but possible)

Take them back and get them replaced

3. Your print head is clogged or faulty

Run your printerthrough the head cleaning process a few times and see if it clears up.

4 your cartridges are out of alignment

Run your printers alignment test

I would suspect number 1.

My hp deskjet 1280 will not print yellow


Hello, this is Harry from www.BusinessSpread.co.uk.
We had the exact same problem when printing, we used 3 different 78 colour ink cartages and they all said 100% full but did not work. We then had a look at the dates on the box and they were all expired so when buying ink from anywhere even PC world or Curry’s always look at the expiry date.
Today I went to PC world and purchased a new 78 ink which said expires July 2011 and it works perfectly fine.

Red will only print on test page.


So what you need to do is clean the cartridge from the printer toolbox..do all the three steps cleaning..(clean cartridge,prime cleaning,intermediate cleaning)..
once the cleaning is done..try to make a copy..if its still the same..change both the ink cartridge and then try to make a copy..if it resolves the issue then cartridge is defective..if it does not resolve the issue then printer is defective..

Printing problem


You have either a clogged colour print head or a non-functioning print cartridge (only one colour working). If the printer has separate cartridges for different colours (and black) you can do a partial swap, replacing the ones that have failed, but start by running the command CLEAN PRINT HEADS from the printer options or controller panel, and watch for the quality to improve. You may have to clean the heads two or three times. If no change in the quality after two flushes, replace the cartridges with new ones.

Good luck...
