Question about HP DeskJet F4280 All In One Printer InkJet

2 Answers

My HP F4280 says it's printing but the pages come out blank. How do I get them to really print??

No matter what I try to print, the printer spits out the page with no printed text or graphics. The paper is blank. I've tried troubleshooting it and turned it off/on. I also rebooted my computer. The printer says "Ready," and paper feeds through but comes out with nothing printed on it.

    Thanks everyone for trying hard to help. What I ended up doing was uninstalling the printer and then reinstalling. Whatever hiccups it had disappeared. Really appreciate the boost here!

SOURCE: Print page comes out blank

If the cartridges are old too this may be a problem. When ink gets old it can clog the cartridges. If they are old replace them with new ones. If they are new ones did you peel the protective covering off before you inserted the cartridges? Hopes this helps

SOURCE: HP LaserJet 3550 spits out blank paper when job sent from computer but prints fine when printing directly from printer

Try connecting the printer via the USB port on either one of the computers. Then test if the machine prints fine then likely possibility is that the Network interface card is faulty remove the network card and install in a different slot and test. If the same thing happens then reinstall the drivers and test.

Hope this helps
Thanks J

SOURCE: prints extra blank page for every one page of printed material

Ok, I too have HP Photosmart 7280 and it was spit'g out a blank page after each print page.
I went into the Control Panel/Printers - Right click on the HP Photosmart 7200 series icon and choose delete. Don't worry...just delete it.
Right above (Vista) click on Add a Printer - it's going to ask you if you want to add a local printer which is connected via USB connection or if you are set up wireless then choose Network
It will find your printer click on the printer hit next - then this is the most important step
It will ask you to find the manufacturer it shows Hewlett-Packard and underneath it shows HP - Do not click on HP - you'll have the same problem with that driver - choose Hewlett-Packard and find this driver HP Photosmart C7200 series Version 61.71.244.0 [3/23/07]
Hopefully they are all digitally signed with this information.
Click on that driver and click next - then click on replace the current driver and click next.
Print a test page and problem should be solved. Hope it helped!

SOURCE: my HP printer spits out a blank page before printing document

I had same problem with hp psc 2410 all-in-one. Finally ran "HP all-in-one Series Web Release Uninstaller version: 4.1.1.00.1332 (3/20/2007) that I had downloaded several years ago. Then plug and play took over and installed the correct driver that Vista kept insisting I already had.

Generally, there are printer set up programs that will let you chose to put a blank sheet or to not do that. If you have a disk or manual, look for the set up utility and go thru the tabs to find paper handling or something similar to that. There should be a check box you can clear to stop the blank page.

I hope that this information was helpful. Have a great day.

Inconsistent printing


In the printer's dialogue find the print pages number. Print page from/to and select 20 pages chunks. In effect print only part of the document at a time. Add all chunks together in one pile. Work around I know, but it works.

Hi

Nice to know that you have enough knowledge to do the basic techniques required.

Anyways Did you try to align the cartridges? first time when the cartridges are installed the printer prints the alignment page which needs to be scanned by the printer, did you perform this set? if not then try to goto tools menu in your printer and try to use the option align cartridges. Only then the cartridges will be aligned and calibrated to print.
