Question about HP PhotoSmart C4280 Laser Printer

1 Answer

HP C4280 incorrect paper feed

I created business cards in WordPerfect and they print out fine on regular paper. As soon as I try to use card stock (standard Avery, InkJet, not overly heavy), the alignment screws up completely and the cards print at the very top of the page. I've tried feeding the stock one page at a time; card stock on top of plain paper, card stock on top of card stock.

    I'm trying to print notecards, two on a page in landscape orientation.  I'm using  Pages to set up the cards.  They print perfectly on plain paper but when I put in the card stock the left margin becomes smaller than the right and the size of the images actually changes slightly.  Any advice?

    My business cards will not print on any card stock... Avery, Staples, or any other. alignment is always off. The lower rows are all off to the top of the card. Same problem with labels. HP assistance was no help at all.

    FYI the HP C4280 is not a laser printer it is an inkjet.

Check your printer's capability.

Buy the card stock they recommend.

If all else fails, print on plain and take card stock to a copy shop and have them do it for you.

Walking there beats going nuts over stupid software or hardware problems

SOURCE: HP Photosmart C4795. Can't get business cards to align correctly.

In printing properties and printing preferences be sure and tell the printer you're printing labels, it allows more time for the card stock to reach the starting point.

if the boot process takes longer that normal, regularly goes back to reboot or you have other problems it could be a failing hard drive (Save all the files and folders to external hard drive and install a solid state hard drive --no spinning disc to fail)
if it is not that check the cooling fan operation for the power supply or chip-- about the only other things that have movement

My MX922 printer worked well this morning. All cartridges have ink but ALL lights under the cartridges are on and print comes out blank. There are no error codes or anything abnormal displayed


This problem is mainly happens to all inkjet printers. If your printer print blank pages then please at least once go to official site of Canon and check whether there is any printer/scanner drivers update is available or not. If yes then download it. Also check your ink cartridges. Because if there is no print on paper that means your ink might be dry.Sometimes it clog the print head. If your ink cartridges get dry change it. Or you should clean your printer's print nozzle by using printer's control panel. I hope all these suggestions helps you. If doesn't then watch Canon MX922 Manual English

My Epson WF-3640 is printing with gaps in the text. How do I fix this issue?


Make sure you should remove shipping tape from the ink cartridge. These taps are used to protect printer during shipping but you have to remove it before starting printing. Beacuse these taps prevent the ink to entering in print head. If you will not found shipping tape in your printer then there is terr off strip, remove it. The tear off strip seals the the vent holes on the top of the cartridge to prevent it from drying out on the shelf or during shipping.
After ensuring that the shipping tape has been removed, run the printer's "Head Cleaning" utility to prime the cartridge, then print a test page.

Paper jams consistely and then continues to feed, even if only printing one page


check your paper size setting on your print menu. i had this problem when i set the paper size smaller than the printer is able to handle (3x5 card) ... i just switched to 4x6 and don't have any problems.

Samsung kicked out hp 3in 1 printer already installed


Don't have your HP designated as the default printer (if possible)when you hook up the Samsung. When the Samsung is hooked up it sees the HP is the default printer. Well it can't have that, they discard the HP drivers. What does Samsung care about HP drivers theres only one printer port setup and thats the USB port you have them sharing. So yes you need to get a second cable. Tim
