Question about HP DeskJet F4280 All In One Printer InkJet
To allow for full use of the cartridges, some printers continue to print even after the cartridges are completely out of ink. First, check the ink levels. If the ink level indicators show that a cartridge is low or empty, replace the cartridge.
If not, try to restart the printer. Restarting the printer might clear the issues and allow the printer to function correctly again.Press the power button to turn-off the printer then unplug the power cord from the back of the printer, and the USB cable(if connected). Leave unplug for 30 seconds then reconnect the USB cable and the power cord.
If issue persists, try to reboot your computer. Restarting your computer might resolve the issue. If the printer prints all pages correctly, but it adds blank pages to the printout, check for blank pages in the print preview.
If the preview contains no blank pages, check the printer cables. If the printer connects with a USB cable or an Ethernet cable, a faulty connection might cause the issue.
If the issue persists, check the printer settings on the computer. Issues with the printer settings on the computer might cause the issue. Follow these steps to check the computer: Step one: Check the default paper settings. Make sure that the default paper size matches the width and length of the paper loaded in the tray. If the paper loaded in the tray is different from the paper size setting, the printer might print blank pages. For instance, the issue might occur if legal size paper (215 x 355 mm (8.5 x 14 in)) is in the tray, and the paper size setting is letter (215 x 279 mm (8.5 x 11 in)).Follow these steps to check the default paper settings.Click Start then go to Printers and Faxes .Right-click the icon for your printer ( ), and then click Printing Preferences . Under Printing Preferences window click the Features tab. Compare the settings in the Size drop-down menu with the paper in the tray. If the size of the paper in the tray is not the same as the setting in the Size drop-down menu, change the setting:Click the Size drop-down list, and then select More . The Size is window opens.Select the size of the paper that is in the tray, and then click OK .Click OK in the Printing Preferences window, and then click OK in the Properties window. Step two: Print a test page A test page might help determine if the printer installation caused the problem.Click Start , and then click Control Panel .Right-click the Printers and Faxes folder ( ), and then click Open.Right-click the printeprinting but page comes out blank - c01532298.gifsrc="http://i.fixya.net/uploads/images/c01532298.gif" alt="c01532298.gif" class="h_mi" /> ).Click Properties .In the General tab, click Print Test Page . The printer prints the Windows XP Printer Test Page.If the Windows XP Printer Test Page prints successfully, you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
If the page is blank, print from an alternate program to determine if the current program is causing the issue.Browse to the location of your saved document, right-click the file, and then click Open With .Select a program other than the program you are currently using to print the document.Open the file in the program, and then check the contents.(Most files open in plain text applications, such as Notepad or WordPad, even if the contents include unusual symbols or text that does not make sense). Try to print the file. If successful, the printer prints exactly what displays in the program window. If the document prints successfully in the alternate program, you do not need to continue troubleshooting. The issue is likely specific to the program you are trying to print from. Consult the program manufacturer for assistance. If the document still prints blank pages in the alternate program, disconnect other devices. Other connected devices, such as scanners, MP3 devices, or other printers might cause conflicts in the communication between the printer and the computer.

I just had tech from Canon and replace a part that took hime 5 minutes. He said that the part replaced allows the image to appear on paper and it was a common issue.

I believe this will solve your problem. It did for me.
delete your printing device and reinstall,
when it asks for your driver, let it search for it.
When your options come up, find "HP" then look for "HP Officejet 7200"
DO NOT install "HP Photoprinter 7200".
This should take care of it.

If it can print from the internet, it is working properly. I would disconnect the printer from the computer, uninstall the drivers and reboot twice. Reinstall the drivers and hook up the printer when instructed. Make sure that you select this as the default printer. (unless, of course, you have another as default)
