Question about HP Printers & Copiers

3 Answers

I have an HP Photosmart C4280 All-in-One PRINTER. When I send anything to the printer, the printer activates and prints out the message: AOL.com Make AOL Your Homepage Get the Moviefone Toolbar We do not have AOL as a cable provider, but did have AOL several years ago. We use another cable provider.

Try printing a test page and see if it does the same thing by going to control panel, clicking on printers and faxes, finding your printer on the list, right click on it, go to properties, and at the bottom of that window, you should see the option print test page. If that does not work, then try un-installing and re-installing the printer software (only if you know where your printer software is) by going to control panel, going to add or remove programs, finding your printer software on the list and click remove beside it. Then unplug the printer and restart your computer and put your software cd in and follow the instructions. Then try printing another test page to check that software was installed correctly and try printing a regular document. It should work correctly then.

    Also make sure that before re-installing the printer software, go to add or remove programs and remove all aol components and other browsers that you do not need.

It looks like you are printing from the Internet using a browser.
Uninstall all AOL programs.

HPPhotosmart C4250 mgs "Printer Cartridge missing or not detected


There may be debris that is blocking the communication between the cartridge and the printer, especially if you are using a remanufactured cartridge. Remove the cartridge and unplug the printer from the power supply. Take a little bit of rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab and wipe off the contacts on the cartridge as well as the contacts inside of the printer. Allow both to dry for a few minutes before plugging the printer back in and re-installing the cartridge. This should clear up any miscommunication between the two.

HP Photosmart c4280 Unwanted Output


I know that it sounds simple. But have you turned the printer off and back on. I have had a LOT of HPs start printing jibberish, and turning them off and back on is the only thing to fix.
I know it sounds like an obvious thing to try, and I don't mean to insult anyone's intelligence. But you'd be surprised how many people don't try that. They reinstall their driver, and reboot their computer, but never turn the printer off and back on.

Won't print to printer - sends to a screen to save


Hi, I don't know if you've had an answer to this one yet, but when you ask your 'puter to print. The printing window that comes up, where you can choose number of copies etc, has a little tick box in the bottom (I think left hand) corner, that says print to file. If you uncheck the box, hopefully this will sort out your problem.
