  • I don't want to buy your black ink if there's actually something wrong with my HP F4280. I bought black ink last week, have printed about 20 pages. Now no black ink whatsoever! Have cleaned the cartridge and chip contacts. Still nothing! Any tips?

    No black ink printing!

    I am very sorry to hear about the problems you have experienced with your black cartridge. Is the printer giving any error messages at all? Is the printer advising that the cartridge is empty? I would recommend trying the following troubleshooting:

    Remove the cartridge from the printer and switch the printer off. Wipe the chip with a dry cloth and blot the cartridge on some tissue paper to see if there is any ink coming out. Reinstall the cartridge and if it is still not printing, run a cleaning cycle on the printer.

    If you are still having problems it may be that the cartridge is faulty and I would recommend contacting the supplier of the cartridge for further assistance.

  • What's the difference between the black HP 300 ink cartridge and the black HP 300XL ink cartridge for the Deskjet F4280 printer?

    Black inks for Deskjet F4280

    The black HP 300 is a standard capacity cartridge whereas the black HP 300XL is a high capacity cartridge. In essence, the HP 300XL lasts longer and prints more pages than the HP 300 ink giving you better value for money in the long run.

  • Being a pensioner novice, would a HP Deskjet F4280 be compatible with my computer system which is Windows XP? Also, is it fairly easy to connect the two together with cables? Thank you for your help. Mr.D.Marley.

    Printer compatibility

    Unfortunately, as we do not stock the printers I am unable to advise the system requirements. However, according to HP's website the printer should work with Windows XP. HP do list the full computer requirements for this printer on their website, please see the link below for more information:

    It's normally straightforward connecting and installing a new printer and there should be full instructions on how to do this. However, please check with the supplier of the printer that you are getting all the cables you require to connect the printer to the computer as sometimes these are sold separately.

  • Hello, I bought from you 3 months ago, 2 black HP 300XL cartridges and 1 colour cartridge. Sorry, I no longer have the invoice. I have just come to use them and the test sheet automatically prints okay but I cannot print from the computer. Also, the indicators on the HP F4280 printer do not light up? Please can you help?

  • Will 301 ink cartridges fit the HP Deskjet F4280 printer?

    Correct ink for HP Deskjet F4280

    No, the HP Deskjet F4280 All-in-One printer can only use the HP 300 / HP 300XL range of ink cartridges. HP 301 cartridges aren't compatible with this device.

  • Can you tell me the difference between HP 300 and HP 301 ink? I've been given a HP F4280 printer but can't work out what ink to put in it. Some things say 300 and some 301. Is there a difference? Thanks.

    Ink cartridgs for Deskjet F4280

    Yes, HP 300 ink cartridges are a different cartridge range to HP 301 cartridges. For the HP Deskjet F4280 printer you need to use the HP 300 or HP 300XL ink cartridges listed on this page. The printer requires that you install one black ink cartridge and one tri-colour cartridge at any one time. You have the option to use either a standard cartridge (HP 300) or high capacity cartridge (HP 300XL) for either colour. HP 301 or 301XL cartridges are for a different range of printers and will not work in the Deskjet F4280.

HP Deskjet F4280 Printer Review

Expert review of the HP Deskjet F4280 printer 26 April 2011

Our Verdict:

The HP F4280 inkjet printer is part of the Deskjet range and is an affordable, entry-priced printer designed for students and home users. Printing is impressive; unfortunately the same can't be said for the scanner or copier. Setting up the F4280 is easy and replacing the ink cartridges is a breeze. For casual printing the F4280 is more than adequate, however, if you're looking to use the printer in a corporate setting, then think again.

Design

The HP F4280 inkjet printer is no different in design than most all-in-ones on the market. It's simple, basic design is echoed across the whole of the F4280 – instead of an LCD interface, the F4280 has rudimentary LEDs that indicate ink levels, there's also just one button for cancelling or resuming prints. The scanner at the top of the printer is sturdy, but unfortunately, isn't adjustable, which may prove a problem if you plan to scan books. At the front of the inkjet is the input and output tray which can hold 80 and 50 sheets respectively. The upside to such a simple design is that the F4280 will fit on most desks thanks to its small foot print (16x43x29cm).

Advantages

With an image resolution of 1,200 x 4,800dpi, text documents come out with laser precision – think rich, crisp text with absolutely no fuzzing. Photo printing isn't as impressive with images appearing slightly grainy; however, results were generally good for a basic inkjet. Next up is print speed, which for an entry-level printer, isn't too bad, with a normal page of text taking around 10 seconds to print.

Disadvantages

At first glance, the HP F4280 inkjet printer seems like the perfect overall package, with fairly good print speeds and decent text print quality. Unfortunately, this trend doesn't continue onto the scanner. It took over a minute to scan and upload a photograph, the end result was equally disappointing – the image lacked colour and appeared very faded in areas. If you find yourself frequently copying or scanning then it's recommended that you look elsewhere for an all-in-one that has a better quality scanner.
