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.
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.

HP Deskjet F4280 Printer Review
Expert review of the HP Deskjet F4280 printer
26 April 2011
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.
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).
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.
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.
