Question about HP PhotoSmart C4480 All-in-One Printer InkJet

Open Question

I have my c4480 with a broken part, unfortunately this piece is missing, and the problem is when I try to print a page the printer takes in the leaf slowly and then puts it back out with a "paper jam" warning, so there is no printing at all, and keeps issuing the same problem whenever I try to print, I think this is due to the missing broken piece, this piece was just behind the printer heads, that is, it is engaged somehow by the printer heads when they rest in the cartridge-changing position, I 'd like to know if there is any solution to this, perhaps what the function of that piece is, or if there is some technical manual to look into, thanks

SOURCE: Paper feed problem

The fault is the paper stop sensor is broken. Have the same problem myself. I don't think there is an easy solution to this as the sensor arm will have to be replaced and I think the m/c would have to be stripped down to do it. Nice to know if anybody has any ideas though.

SOURCE: HP 1320 duplex printing paper jam

Managed to solve this myself: I disassembled the printer and noticed there was a paper jammed in the duplex tray. Rolls were all ok, but the paper blocked the use of the duplex pathway. For disassembly help check the HP 1320 service manual, which you can find on the net as a PDF.

SOURCE: HP 4200 printer paper jam. No paper is jammed

check this out....when the printer reports the jam, open the paper tray very carefully and slowly.

Has the paper moved at all forward? Has it moved like 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch out of the tray?

If so, you probabaly need a torque limiter, no tools, $10 or so and a very very easy fix.

POBCM is very correct when he points out that the block/stop in the back of the tray moves when the tray is closed with too much force and this is the #1 cause most of the time.

You may see a "41.3" code displayed if the block is not up to the back of the paper and the paper is not all the way forward in the trays, and under the two metal clips at the front of the tray.

SOURCE: HP psc 1310 - gave paper jam and print cartridge

clean the rubber rollers of the printer and try to print. if it is still having the same problem. reset the printer by unplugging the power cord of the printer while its turn on. then plug the power cord back in. once the printer is on press and hold the power/on button and the size button. when the on button is flashing then release the buttons and try to print again

SOURCE: HP photosmart C4480 printer cartridge incompatible error

Well....I solved the problem......bought a new Canon printer!!

I tried everything...unplugging, cleaning everything that was mentioned above. I was onto HP online support several time, but they were absolutely no help at all...they basically told me that the cartridge must be damaged or ink dried up and to buy a new cartridge to see if the error persisted.....I don't think so!!!
I will never by HP again after having issues with the last two I have had. I love my new Canon printer it is EVERYTHING that HP wasnt.

Try to re-seat the cartridge into the printer. Clean with a q-tip the chip on the cartridge because that's the part of the cartridge that's not working. If still no luck, take the cartridge back to seller for replacement, chip is faulty.

Hello Friend,

First of all please check for correct drivers for printer.

Secondally : Please draw three different - different color boxes in word and print them on you printer and find out which one color is missing. Example as follows.

Printer will not print in black


I will try to help but when you installed the printer and the cartridges, did you remove meaning completely remove the tape on the printed circuit and nozzles of the cartridge? Did you remove all the tapes on the machine? It's not likely that the cartridge is defective when it is that new. Hope this helps.
