Hi! You may want to try head cleaning to resolve the blurry prints. The smudge may be caused by a full waste ink pad. Try to replace the wastepad and it may resolve the problem. Hope this helps and have a good one!

Printing with horizontal dark lines


Did the dark lines start after the change? If so, maybe the drum on one of the cartridges is damaged. (Since you mentioned dark, I'd suspect the black cartridge.) Try replacing cartridges.

If that doesn't fix it, you can send it in for repair if it's under warranty. If it's outside warranty, I'd probably just replace it, unless you want to learn a lot about the innards of a laser printer.

I just changed my ink cartridge on my F4280 hp printer, now my printing is blurry


Hello.
Try running the print head alignment feature through the computer. (Click Start - Control Panel - Printers and Faxes - RIGHT CLICK HPF4280 - select printing preferences - select maintenance - select cartridge alignment and follow the on screen instructions) This can also be caused by solid pieces of ink stuck inside the print head disrupting the flow. if it a genuine HP cartridge contact HP for a replacement. The link below shows how to clear blockages also http://www.fixya.com/support/r3986425-unblock_print_heads
I hope this helps Regards GM

Black ink cartridge does not print well, it prints with alternate horizontal black linings.


Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can also be poor ink cartridge contacts

please check this link for cleaning the head before confirming it to be changed..

How to change color printer hp f4280 to only print black because color cartridge is empty?


Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click Printers
Right-mouse click on the icon for your HP printer.
Click Properties.
Change from "print in colour" to "print only in black".
Click OK.

Now, your printer *might* print, or it still may demand that the "empty" ink-cartridge be replaced.

Hi, I have an HP F4280 printer and the orange light of the color ink level is always lighting so i can't print anything (I am sure that my color cartridge is not already empty). What can I do? Oh yeah,...


There is only enough ink in the HP 60 cartridge to print approximately 200 pages. Also, the ink stored in the cartridge can dry quickly even it it's not used so you may be out of ink or the ink in the cartridge has dried up. Refill your cartridge with a kit or replace it with a new one. The ink level indicator is only an estimate any way. See pg 72 of the user manual which you can obtain here: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01374711.pdf

Horizontal white lines through the text


Your ink cartridge (s) is dried up, even some new ones are dried up, even tho' they're sealed.

Some self-tests don't use black.
