    When I try to print an Excel document from my iMac, the print dialogue runs and then the printer shows as stopped in the print utility. When I click start jobs it begins spooling for a while then stops. I replaced an empty ink cartridge which I think triggered the problem initially. I then deleted the printer and preferences, restarted and the printed worked with text edit but not my Excel document.

My HP Photosmart C4280 all in one printer will not print...can you help?


Do/did you get any error messages?
Check that the printer is online and check the printer queue (Devices and Printers in Win7). Try a new USB cable and plugging the printer into a different port. If you have a print server or USB hub, try connecting directly to the computer.

Reset the printer by unplugging it and the USB cable. (If files are built up in the queue and the printer is online, try deleting them. If they don't delete, you need to stop and restart the printer spooler. In any version of Windows from a command prompt window, type "net stop spooler" without the quotes and hit <enter>. On the next line type "net start spooler" again without the quotes and <enter>. Restart the computer.)

Other issues are possible if there are any error messages that you don't mention.

I hope this helps.
