SOURCE: Carriage error Hp F2280

Same thing happened to me and I took it back to the store, where I bought it from. They replaced it with a new one and told me that it didn't have any software installed, like if you have a motherboard without bios ..

How do I print in colour with HP F2280 printer. I need the know how on how to make coloured printing. I have lost the manual of my printer.

You can find the manuals on line for the HP F2280 here:

1) do you have all of the cartridges installed? When only the black or photo cartridge is in, the printer prints in greyscale. If you only have the tri-color cartridge installed, you get color with black as grey.

2) What program is sending the file to the printer? When you click print, you should get a prompt for the printer that will have a Properties button. (This may be called Printer Setup, Preferences, Options, Printer or Properties) Check the settings at the Color tab. Alternatively, you may be able to access this from the Printer icon in the Control Panel. (For recent Windows OS versions, Start > Devices and Printers. Then either right click or double click on the appropriate printer. (The right click option will let you select Printer Properties directly.) Also check that the program isn't doing a quick print in a greyscale option.

I hope this helps.

Printer disc is f2200 but printer is deskjet f2280

Don't Worry you have the right disc.
The printer you have is of Deskjet F2200 Series and F2280 Is on of them.
Although the printers are segrigated but the Printer driver and software are the same for the F2200 Series.

So you can install the same.

Good Luck
