Open Question

HP C4280 prints blank pages even though it claims to have enough ink. This happened just after a move, so I suspect something has broken loose?

SOURCE: HP IIIp prints extra blank pages

HI there make sure that the paper tray guides are fully against the paper also try sending the job through the manual feed to see if you get the same problem. If you do not then it maybe that the paper cassette separation pad is worn and will need replacing. If your model has no rubber pad at the front of the cassette then you will have a metal hold over one corner of the paper make sure that when the paper lifts that the paper sits under the silver (Dog Ear) as this acts as a separator.

Hope this helps
Thanks J

SOURCE: Prints a blank page only

First try to clean the cart with following procedures if this did not work then heat walls of the cart with hair dryer for 3 to 5 min then insert the cartridges and try to print :
# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Try reinstalling all of the printer software. If that does not do it then something is wrong with the printhead itself, specifically the area that controls the flow and metering of the black ink.

Printer will not recognize new blk ink cartridge.


I think either the printer's scanner(or film as some call it) and/or the carriage is faulty. The signal cable that connects the carriage to the logic board could also be a suspect. Try replacing these items one after another and the culprit will be isolated. Good luck.

My hp photosmart c4280 doesn't print. it won't **** the paper in. does anybody know how to solve this?


Try moving the rod that holds the rollers and see if that is loose.
If it is then you need to call up hp and either get a replacement or an upgrade printer with a 50% dicount on an upgrade and if your in warranty then yuor printer will be replaced free of cost.
If it is not loose then try cleaning the rollers with a cloth dipped in water and then try to put the paper in while holding it and see if it goes in this will help detect whether there is something loose with the pick mechanism or not.
Then disconnect the power cable from the printer press and hold the cancel and colour copy buttons and reconnect the power cable and then try to print and see what happens.
If all this does not resolve the problem then call hp at 1-800-474-6836 and ask either for a replacement if your printer is in one years warranty if its not I suggest you go in for the upgrade with atleast a 50% discount
