There may be nothing you can do about it. A lot of the HP printers make a lot of noise as they start up or prepare to print. Has your printer always made this noise or did it just start?

Can't get word to print from c4280 but will print from the web


When you select 'Print' from MS Word, what printer is listed? Make sure it is the HP C4280 and make sure 'Print to File' is NOT checked.

HP Photosmart c4280 Unwanted Output


I know that it sounds simple. But have you turned the printer off and back on. I have had a LOT of HPs start printing jibberish, and turning them off and back on is the only thing to fix.
I know it sounds like an obvious thing to try, and I don't mean to insult anyone's intelligence. But you'd be surprised how many people don't try that. They reinstall their driver, and reboot their computer, but never turn the printer off and back on.

How do I install ink cartridge for hp photosmart C4280


To replace the print cartridges
1. Make sure the HP All-in-One is on.
CAUTION: If the HP All-in-One is off when you open the print cartridge door to
access the print cartridges, the HP All-in-One will not release the cartridges for
changing. You might damage the HP All-in-One if the print cartridges are not
docked safely when you try to remove them.

2. Make sure you have letter or A4 unused plain white paper loaded in the input tray.

3. Open the print cartridge door.
The print carriage moves to the far right side of the HP All-in-One.

4. Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then lightly press down on a print
cartridge to release it.
If you are replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the
slot on the left.
If you are replacing the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from
the slot on the right.
1 Print cartridge slot for the tri-color print cartridge
2 Print cartridge slot for the black and photo print cartridges
5. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot.
6. If you are removing the black print cartridge in order to install the photo print cartridge,store the black print cartridge in the print cartridge protector or an airtight plastic container.

7. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch only
the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab.
1 Copper-colored contacts
2 Plastic tape with pink pull tab (must be removed before installing)
3 Ink nozzles under tape

CAUTION: Do not touch the copper-colored contacts or ink nozzles. Touching
these parts can result in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections.

8. Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Then gently push the upper
part of the print cartridge forward until it clicks into the socket.
If you are installing the tri-color print cartridge, slide it into the left slot.
If you are installing a black or photo print cartridge, slide it into the right slot.
Work with print cartridges 69
Maintain the HP All-in-One

9. Close the print cartridge door.
If you installed a new print cartridge, the HP All-in-One prints a print cartridge
alignment page.
10. When prompted, ensure plain white paper is loaded in the input tray, then press the

button next to OK.
NOTE: If you have colored paper loaded in the input tray when you align the print
cartridges, the alignment will fail. Load unused plain white paper into the input
tray, and then try the alignment again.

11. Place the page print side down on the scanner glass and then press the button next
to OK to scan the page.

Doedn't print all pages


We need to refresh the print spooler service for this type of issues.

Perform the below steps if you are using XP.

Click on start >> run >> services.msc >> in the services window locate the printer spooler and right click on it and select refresh or select stop and again start the service.

Now open the printers and faxes folder in control panel and right click on C4200 printer icon >> properties >> advanced tab >> click on print directly to printer >> click OK.

Now try to print and check for the result.
