Deskjet F4280 not printing

Software for F4280 installed and recognized by the computer. Computer says device working properly. But when I print a document nothing happens. It says printing but never does. Can not even print a test page from my computer. I can from the printer itself, but it doesn't look like the test page shown in manual.
I tried a new usb cord, a different usb port and restarting my computer. Please help.

    I have the same problem, though I downloaded all the drivers from hp.com , when I try to print, the program shuts down. It seems like there's a problem with hp digital imaging toolbox when I try to print the test page... Somebody help me please!

    My printer says it's printing and it makes all the noises but when it comes time to sucking up the paper, the printer starts saying empty and the RESUME button starts flashing. I click RESUME and it's the same thing...Makes all the noise but won't accept my paper. I've restarted my comp and restarted the printer but nothing.

SOURCE: USB port problems with hp printer

There are few things to remember using USB.

  • If your System is in hybernation mode, don't remove any attached USB device, because it will damage your USB driver. This is one of the known problem from microsoft.
  • If you have to remove any USB device use 'Safely Remove Hardware'.

To remove currepted USB drivers its not enough to remove your printer drivers.
  1. You should un-install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' from Device Manager.
  2. Then re-boot to clean registry.
  3. Install the 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' using XP Setup CD.
  4. Then check the Mass storage, PDA etc, it should recognized by XP.
  5. Then install printer driver (don't attach printer to system untill setup finish or setup says to connect).

I think it will fix.
Please let me know your feed-back.

Thanks
Iqbal

check the ports first.. make sure that the printer is set as default ( make sure it has the green tick and the status "ready" or "online" on the printer icon in the printers&faxes. and if u want to connect it wirelessly, you have to install it as usb first before changing to wireless........

Hi,
when you refill the cardtridge, you can not reset the ink level... because refilling doesn't show the ink levels.. you no need to worry. if ink is there in the carttridge it will print...
Shouldn't worry about it. They are only a rough guide. The only time to worry about it is when the printer stops working and it has told you it's run out of ink! Thank you.......

Sounds like their is not communications between your printer and computer. Could be a bad USB cable - swap out and see if that fixes it. If not it could be a faulty USB port on the computer or printer. You can check the computer USB port by connecting another device, but there is no way to check the HP's USB port. I would also check printer USB port for dust bunnies! If you're not able to resolve, I think it is time for another printer.

My printer wont print anything all it says is that the printer is offline however its turned on and attatched to the computer i dont know what to do. It may have been becasue i installed someone elses...


Your best bet is to:
Remove the software
Unplug the printer
Reinstall the software
After the software is installed, plug in the printer. Computer should then recognize the printer and complete the install.

Best of luck, Jim

My hp deskjet allinone doesnt print but is connected itsays error


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Attempts to print on HP Deskjet F4280 shut down my programs


Sounds like the drivers are not installing properly. Are you installing through the CD or downloading the drivers from the HP website. Since a lot of the new drivers are no longer supporting XP you will need to download a scrubber utility and delete all of the pre installed drivers and attempt to reinstall through a manual installation of the drivers.
