Question about HP Photosmart C4280 Aio Printer

1 Answer

I am trying to print a 4x6 on my HP C4280 all in one printer. I have changed the settings, I keep getting an inky mess. Do I need to use a certain type of photo paper? I have tried changing the settings/paper types, but still turns out terrible.

I use HP Premium Photo paper, 4x6 with tab. Also, there is Photo ink cartridges available for this printer.

Also, use the HP Photosmart Essentials program to print the photos.

When I print pictures on the 3210 HP all-in-one, they come out very small even though I choose the 4X6 in paper size for the photo tray. I've tried everything I can, but the pictures keep printing wallet...


First thing that comes to mind is that a 4x6" print could print four wallet sized photos; be shure your are not printing more than one copy.

If you are trying to print more than one,it will print the actual picure you have and leave space for the number of other nonexistent prints selected.

See page 75 of the Manual. for directions on how to set up photo printing.

If you have photoshop, you can resize your documents using the menu item, Image / Image size, (Alt + i then i again)

Set the resolution to 300, then the document size width to 6 or 10 inches.

This will guarantee that your document is full size, (though the printer should be able to resize it to fit on the page no matter what).

Give these a try. It's really a shot in the dark, but it's my best guess.

Cheers.
Richard.

Printer keeps saying usb not conected


Can you print from it? It sounds like you just need to install the software that came with it, it has all the drivers you need or go to hp website and download the newest drivers. Update your drivers and then it will recognize it.

Can't print black/white photos


Actually there is no solution to this "problem" nearly for all Inkjet machines.
The reason is that Printers are Dummy Receivers, meaning that they can not process the print file, sent to them by any source. They are programed to just print the file without "asking questions".
The Manufactures now, of Inkjet machines, in order to avoid the possibility of printing something with a certain colour missing, they have just programmed their machines NOT TO PRINT ANYTHING whenever ANY colour is empty.
So, dont bother trying to print making all kind of adjustments and change settings and get a new cartidge :)

Hp c4280 printer/print cartridges


Have you checked to make sure that you have the correct replacement cartridge?

In general if it simply will not go into position and you know you have the correct cartridge, then you need to take it back to where you bought it and request a replacement - because it is defective.
