Check printer setting under printer properties
right click printer icon under printers in control panel then click printer properties
then look for printer preferrences and change the quality to best,fast draft or black it depends on you


if that doesnt resolve the issue check the ink levels if it is low on ink then change to new one

if it is inks that came with the printer when you first bought it,it will really not gave you good printouts since they are just sent for setting up the printer and for testing purposes

if its brand new inks then try the following

1 align the printer - using solution center or front panel
2 clean printheads/ink cartridges contacts/nozzles
3 reset the printer


if this does not fix the issue then check the link below for more help


lastly if your printer is still in warraty or not call 18004746836 for tech assistace and they can tell you options in resolving or if theres a need for you to upgrade the printer

Hp 4480 how do you unpause it


The HP F4480 likely has a malfunctioning ink cartridge which is causing the printer hang (i.e. internal micro-electronics damage inside the HP 60 color or black ink cartridge). You can verify the electrical condition of both HP 60 ink cartridges by activating the Tap 41 diagnostic test report (see video here for complete instructions):

http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=440 (HP 60 - Deskjet F2400/F4400/F4500 models)
    1.While holding the Power button, press Cancel (X) button 4 times, then press the Color Copy button once.
    2.Release the Power button.
    3.The 'Tap 41' diagnostic test print should print.

    Providing the color cartridge is partially functioning the Tap 41 diagnostic test print will be printed (this is a forced service print test which is mainly used for the evaluation of ink cartridge electrical health). A good HP 60/60XL color cartridge should display 1248 good nozzles, while a good HP 60/60XL black ink cartridge should show 336 good nozzles. If the results yield anything different then the ink cartridge is likely damaged and will need to be replaced. Refer to 2nd video on how to read the printout.
    http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=440 (HP 60 - Deskjet F2400/F4400/F4500 models)
    http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=444 (HP 60 - Deskjet F4200 model)

    If the printer attempts to print the diagnostic test pattern (1 page) then the printer is generally considered operational and functional, if nothing is printed, but the printer attempts to print the pattern, then the tri-color ink cartridge is either empty, clogged or severely electrically damaged (black ink cartridge is not used). You can remove the tri-color cartridge, reactivate the tap 41 test and the printer will print the diagnostic test print in black ink.

You may have to do another alignment of the printer.
Do a Clean the Print Cartridge cycle first.
This will allow the printer to print a good alignment page.

Printer is offline & will not print ... not even a test page.


First, make sure that the printer is properly connected to the computer and it's turned on.

Go to Control Panel > Printers > right-click the printer icon > select "Use printer Online".

Make sure the clear the pending documents on the queue before trying to print a test page.

Thank you for using FixYa!
