Question about HP Photosmart C4480 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

How can you clean print heads for the HP C4480 All-In-One? "Best quality photos" prints well, but text has lines and smudge marks. Cleaned spongy material below cartridges but can't clean roller. Test page is very messy. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Just take out the ink cartridge and clean off the bottom of it, that is the print head. you may need to clean under the plastic piece that it sits in. That may have hair or fuzz on it that is dragging across print.

Is there a way to change the print quality from "normal" to "high"?


usually, if not all almost all printers allow you to set printing preferences before you print.
1. In windows, when you are about to print a document or photo, click preferences then you should be able to change printing quality. Usually, printers have radio buttons(option

buttons to select best "text","best quality", "photo quality" and "best photo quality". Just selct your preferences then click ok, then print.
2. If printing photos, there will be a warning to use photo paper instead of the usual paper.
3. Did this answer your question?

Smudged printing. Ink cartridge just replaced.


This is a laser printer and does not have a print head to be cleaned. Fortunately it does have a laser cartridge that can easily be replaced and solve all of your problems : ) The replacement cartridge is a HP Q2613A or the high capacity HP Q2613X. Your local Cartridge World should have a high quality refilled cartridge that will treat you very well and save you money.

Poor photo printing quality with new color cartridge


Shaking these cartridges does nothing except give you a little exercise. If this is a brand new HP cartridge you are having problems with I would return it to the store you purchased it from. HP brand cartridges should not give you these problems right out of the box. The print defects you are seeing are due to a dried up or clogged print head. If you like you can try hydrating the print head on a water soaked paper towel until the ink starts flowing, but there's a risk you will cross contaminate the colors.
