Question about HP DeskJet 1280 InkJet Printer

2 Answers

My hp deskjet 1280 will not print yellow

My colour cartridge is 80% full and I have just replaced the black cartridge. Suddenly when I print a grey scale illustration it prints black solid but blue half tones. When I print a full colour illustration the yellow does not print. A test gives me perfect black, magenta, pink, purple, blue and cyan but nothing with yellow in it. After I clean the print heads I get the same result.

Hello, this is Harry from www.BusinessSpread.co.uk.
We had the exact same problem when printing, we used 3 different 78 colour ink cartages and they all said 100% full but did not work. We then had a look at the dates on the box and they were all expired so when buying ink from anywhere even PC world or Curry’s always look at the expiry date.
Today I went to PC world and purchased a new 78 ink which said expires July 2011 and it works perfectly fine.

I just fix in new black and coloured cartridges and only black and red colours appear on my prints. the replaced coloured cartridge was giving similar print problems.


hi im josh in cebu phils. friend may i help you? it happen try to shake the cartridge that doesn't print.and install it again and just remember this: Problem: Your Color Printer Doesn't Print All Available Colors This problem is most likely caused by an old ink cartridge. It's not unusual for some colors to get depleted before others, throwing off your color output. If you're seeing less blue (or red or yellow or black) than normal, chances are it's time to change your cartridge. so thats all good luck

Printing problem


You have either a clogged colour print head or a non-functioning print cartridge (only one colour working). If the printer has separate cartridges for different colours (and black) you can do a partial swap, replacing the ones that have failed, but start by running the command CLEAN PRINT HEADS from the printer options or controller panel, and watch for the quality to improve. You may have to clean the heads two or three times. If no change in the quality after two flushes, replace the cartridges with new ones.

Good luck...
