Question about HP DeskJet F4280 All In One Printer InkJet

HP DeskJet 1220C InkJet

Problem after cleaning ink dust off internal parts and position sensor ribbon that now the ink cartridge carriage is in far right position and making a slight clicking sound every 20 seconds or so. Won't print and the printer cartridge light is on. (it has been on for a while say 6 months,as the color cart. is empty byut I print only black so no need to refill) The sensor ribbon has some defects in the small lines. I was careful not to spill liquid in the printer or drip it as didn't want it on the board. I need the sensor ribbon part number if that's the issue (it printed fine just before I cleaned it with plain water)

You are not suppose to clean the sensor ribbon with water... it might damage the printer...
however what you can do is you can clean it with a lint free cloth which should be dry..
connect the printer directly to the wall outlet...
what you can do is unplug the printer from the back of the printer without turning the product off... then press and hold the power button for 30 sec... and then re plug it back in... check if that helps...
if it does not work please contact hp...

Probably bad, there's actually no way to check ink levels.

I had the same problem. It was solved once I bought an original color cartridge. Refilled cartridge seems not to work on this printer. Glad if it might help.

My cartridge light wont go off even when cartridges are replaced


there might be a problem with the cartridges carriage, find a new one and replace it because generally it can't be fixed. You can also buy a second hand HP DJ series 900 cartridge carriage, it's exactly the same piece ant it's 100% compatible.

Anyways, there's always a slight chance to fix it without buying another one: with a small clothe (or cotton bud) impregnated in alcohol, cleanse the cartridge carriage on its inside, specially in the copper tips that makes contact with the ink cartidge. It might solve the problem, but it isn't a flawless technique

there might be a problem with the encoder: remove it, observe it closely with a magniying glass, and you have to see a vertical lines pattern all along the enconder, without no blurs or missing or erased parts on it. Try to clean it with alcohol and a cloth but be careful no to erase the patterns i described early. If there are missing lines in the pattern you'll need to replace.

What is the encoder? a strip of semitransparent plastic that goes in the back of the cartridge carriage.

LIGHTS FLASHING, FAILS TO PRINT


Sound to me that the ink cartridge carriage is stuck if you can remove ink cartridges and then reinstall them. You may have to take machine apart. There are clips on the bottom of the machine to do this but be aware that when you turn it upside down the waste ink will leak

Hope I could help
Thanks J

HP 1220c problem


Did you try both cartridges? Sometimes a fried circuit on the color cartridge will cause a out of ink on the black even when the black is new. Double check that you are using the correct cartridge for the printer. and look at the copper/gold contacts in the printer where the cartridge goes. look for dried ink or tears. Clean with a Q-tip dipped in water. CAREFULLY. If it's torn.... enjoy your trip to walmart.

Print rarely completes


You need to clean the rail that the print head rides on and especially the carriage portion that makes contact with the rail. The bushings at that location are more than likely gummed up with ink and paper dust.

HP Deskjet 1220C cartridge recognition problem


This happens when the connections on the cartridge get old. Especially when you refill or buy non HP Cartridges, try buying brand new hp cartridges and you might be able to get a couple refill out of them before this happens again.
