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 HP 1280 printer does print black and white text


Could it just be that the black cartridge has run out? If not, try and clean the print heads. You should be able to do this in the printer options in Windows. It is more than likle that the black nozzle is blocked.

Ho to print in color in 1280 deskjet the both cartridges are full of color


This may be a setting on the computer you're trying to print from. In the printer properties menu (accessible from the print dialog box or from the printers list in control panel/settings), and Printing Preferences, you may have options selected which cause the printer to print only in black and white. Try exploring these settings thoroughly.
