Wont detect hp deskjet 4280 - Apple MacBook Pro Laptop Computer with Intel Duo Core 15.4 Inch PC Notebook

    I have already installed the driver--but that does not seem to be working. Every time I plugged in the USB cord for the printer--my mac would say that the Printer is Offline. I was able to print from it once--but not sine then. After speaking to Apple Support, they asked me to delete the printer from my system preferences. Now my computer wont even recognize that it is there. I ordered the driver from HP, and i am going to try to install it once more. The problem with installing it seems to come at the end when it asks me to set it up, and the printer does not appear in the list of choices I have to set up the printer. Any suggetions?

    I deleted the driver, and then reinstalled it--but im facing the same issue. The mac does not even recognize that the printer is plugged in. When i try to add the printer under system preferences, it does not give me the option to do so after i hit the + button. I cannot do a printer reset because the mac doesnt recognize the printer at all.

It's not clear to me whether you're just installing this for the first time, or had it working and lost the connection, so I'll attempt to cover both scenarios...
For installation support, see articles here and here and drivers here., initial setup instructions here. If you have trouble or get an error message, you might also wish to look through the list of installation issues here for helpful advice, even if they apply to windows os.
For lost connection, see here., here, here.
Finally, if it's not already apparant, you will find more support info for mac by searching from your model home support page here.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

    I think your printer has been installed correctly, you just need to enable it. Go to system preferences and access the print and fax applet. Press the + button to add a printer and you should be presented with a list of printers available. Select the 4280 and test printing.

    If that doesn't do it, go back into system prefs, right click the printer's icon and select "Reset printing system."

    Hope that does it!

    you may also be able to bring it online by going to system preferences>print & fax>Open Print Queue>Resume printing...

    Do you have the cd or only the downloaded driver?

    Reboot your computer. Then plug the printer into the computer , turn printer on, and run apple software updates. Perhaps that will find the necessary drivers needed for installation.

    See also this article and this search result. for some options that have worked for other mac users.

My hp 4280 all in one wont print. it shows an


Hi,
Rather than to analyze your problem and fixing, just uninstall all the softwares related to your printer from the control panel and reinstall them back using the driver cd came along with your printer and this should fix your problem. If still the problem persists, then try connecting and printing from any other PC/laptop to find out where exactly the problem is.
I hope this is helpful to you.
Thanks
