All the pages I print are blank. There is sufficient ink the print preview shows the image but the actual print out is blank


Sounds like your print heads are clogged. This is quite common. Go into your printer's menu and find the maintenance menu and follow the steps to clean your print heads. Run the process everal times until the prints are 100%. Then run a printhead alignment. Regardless of whether your not your ink is full, if cleaning the heads several times does not solve the issue, put new ink cartridges in because you may have bad cartridges. If that doesn't work, you've got bigger issues, contact the manufacturer.

Does it Print Self Test Page or Does it print Alignment Sheet ?

Remove the Cartridges
Clean the Contacts on Cartridges with lint free cloth ( golden contacts )
Disconnect the USB Cable from Printer
Insert the Cartridges
It should go thru Alignment process - complete the alignment process
Connect the Cable to Printer

Turn off/on the printer it should not print the page.

The red prints just under the blue, everytime you print blue, creating a shadow. if you print red only, the letters look as if they are out of alignment.


Just align your printerhead by clicking the maintenance on the printer then click the printerhead alignment and follow the steps of how to complet the process.

Every time I change a cartridge in my HPC4280 printer, a window pops up on my monitor and says I need to do an alignment. Fine, but even though I tell it I already have an alignment sheet, it prints...


I believe that you are not completing the alignment process.

Let me explain the alignment process..

1- Remove the usb cable from printer and computer if connected through usb cable.

2- Turn off the printer, wait for 30 seconds, turn on the printer

3- It will print an alignment page

4- Place this page on scanner glass of printer from right hand corner

5- Press OK or SCAN button on printer

6- This will complete the alignment process.

It will not print an alignment page again and again.

Always starts up and does an alignment page.


  1. After installing a new print cartridge, wait at least 20 seconds for the print cartridge alignment process to start.
  2. Wait for the print cartridge alignment process to fully complete.
  3. Make sure that the alignment page has printed on plain, white paper that has no other printing on it. If you need to create a new alignment page, load the tray with letter or A4 unused plain white paper and turn the product off and on again to create the page.
    after the alignment page prints then place the alignment sheet on the scanner glass and press the ok button
