Hi there,

For a long period of time the printer has not been used, the printer ink has dried out even you did not using it.

You need to replace the ink of your printer, the blinking codes means that there was no more ink on the tank and need replacement.

After replacing the ink, do a deep cleaning on the printer to wiped out some dirt that in the printer head.

Hope this initial info/idea helps.

Let me know for any clarification.

Thank you.

I have a hp1280 deskjet printer it is print so much slowly


At its fastest, the Deskjet 1280 only prints at 14 pages per minute, and this number decreases if you print in color, use a higher resolution, or use larger than 8.5" x 11" paper.

To increase print speed, try dropping the print resolution from 600x600 (Best) to 300x600 (Fast), and if you are printing something that doesn't have any color, make sure you select black and white in the print properties, rather than color.

My hp1280 prints only one color at a time. some days it prints only blue and black; another day, only red and black etc. I haven't a clue what the problem might be.


Try doing a cleaning cycle on the heads. If that does not work try updating the firmware of your printer. I am not sure if the firmware of your model is upradeable though

Machine has an error code & won't print. We have no manual.


If the lamp is on solid that is a cancel job or reset printer indicator
If the lamp is blinking (flashing) that is the secondary Jam error meaning somewhere in the paper path is a jam. The lamp shoul dbe blinking in a sequense - that sequence indicates what are of the printer the jam is. So the lamp should blink a number of times, pause then blink the same number again.

1 blink - jam in feeder sensor
2 blink - jam in manual feed
3 blink - jam under toner
4 blink - jam in output are
5 blink - jam in tray 1
6 blink - jam in tray 2 (if present/option)

Light is blinking, doesnt print, it prints before but now it doesnt. appears online and ready on the computer.


If the port had been changed to LPT1 the printer will not work.

LPT1 is the large parallel port, while you are using USB on this printer.

the red light came on probably because of a jam , or because of one of the documents in the printer cue.

The easiest thing to do is

Unplug printer usb.
Go to control panel>installed printer.
Delete all the instances of this printer from there and chose to delete drivers if asked.
Reistall the printer using the printer disk, plug in printer data cable only when asked by setup wizard.

If you have a different USB cable, also use it, just in case.

If that does not fix the problem , then there is an internal fault in the printer.

Regards.

The yellow light blinks and it won't print


I also started having problems with my HP 870Cse when I began using refilled cartridges and had ink leakage (cartridge contacts corrupted). Check for this problem. If so, remove cartridges and gently clean the spillage. Then try using HP brand cartridges and see if this doesn't remedy the problem.
