HP f4280 won't feed paper

I'm so frustrated with HP. This is the second HP all-in-one printer I have purchased and neither one feeds the paper automatically. The F4280 I just purchased for my business office I got at Circuit City so I can't return it since they are going out of business. There was no CD in the box so I had to download the drivers. They 'absolutely promised' that the USB cable they recommended would work with the printer and my desktop PC, but it's the wrong end for the printer (I was holding the sealed printer box at the time) and will have to purchase another USB cable. Now I am trying to test it by printing a copy and the paper won't feed. I have called HP support, but they are 'testing' their f4280 (I think to replicate the problem) and will call me back later. Is paper feeding problems being encountered by others? Any solutions? I have checked for packing materials and they are all gone. It won't print with the top door open so I can watch the 'pulling' process.

    I had similar problem of not printing and paper was not feed through smoothly. The "E" light was always on beside the Start Copy button.

After waiting 4 hours for the promised return phone call from HP support I called HP tech support back and this time I connected with someone who was familiar with the problem. This is what he had me do: 1) disconnect the power cable from the back of the printer, 2) push the On/Off button 10 times, 3) wait 30 seconds, and 4) reconnect the power cable. It worked great and the paper started feeding with no problem! He said that static can build inside. I am going to try this with my HP PSC 1510 All-In-One which requires me to hand-feed the paper. My fingers are crossed.

HP emailed me to push on/off 10 times.. OR unplug the printer, then unplug the power cable behind the printer, then hold the on/off for 60 secs. they say that this will discharge all the capacitors.. and if not service the product..

I have an HP Deskjet F4280 All-in-One printer. It will not grab the paper to print. I have tried some solutions that I read on a site to shut the power off, turn the printer on/off button 10 times, wait...


The feed rollers are probably dirty. look inside where the leading edge of the paper sets, the feed roller are right above..might only be 1 roller. Put some rubbing alcohol on a rag (not a tissue or paper towel) and clean the roller. It will only roll one way.
Hope this helps

Hp deskjet F4280 paper jams when printing a job - feeds faster on right side of paper


This clearly indicates the paper feeder roller is having the problem. Need to replace the same will resolve your problem.

My HP F4280 all in one printer cannot print. the three lights keep blinking. I have paper in the feed tray, and ink that came with the printer correctly installed.


Have you used the disc and installed it on your computer as per instructions? If not or if you used a usb cable and plugged it in too soon, or the installation failed to install all programs for the printer and needs to be reinstalled amd set up again properly.

Hewlett packerd 3310 won't paper feed. You can feed one paper at a time and use the end of a number a small pish stick to help feed it thru the paper tray!


Most likely either the pickup roller or the feed roller is worn, damaged, or excessively dirty.

You need to purchase a "paper feed cleaning kit" either from your regular HP store or from an HP online retailer. Then go here to get the step-by-step procedure. Instructions vary according to your operating system.

If this does not correct your feed problem, you need an HP certified technician to disassemble the printer and physically examine the parts. They may require replacement.
