Deskjet F4280 prints Black blurry.

Deskjet F4280
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My Deskjet F4280 is printing blurry. New ink cartridges (changed twice). I've done cartridge alignments and troubleshooting, but nothing works. Is it a Windows 10 issue? I just updated recently.  It's only the black print that's blurry. I printed in red and it's fine. This printer has been a workhorse and I love it so I hope it's a simple fix.

Welcome to HP support community.

 

Did you make a copy and check if that prints fine?

If that copies fine, follow the below steps:

 

Perform root level uninstallation to remove all the printer related software's.

  • In Windows, search for and open Programs and Features.
  • Select your HP printer.
  • Select Uninstall.
  • In Windows, search for and open Devices and Printers.
  • In the Devices and Printers window look for your HP Printer. If you see it listed, right-click on it and choose "Delete" or "Remove Device.”
  • Open up the run command with the "Windows Key + R" key combo.
  • Type printui.exe /s and click OK.
  • Click on Drivers tab.
  • Look for HP Printer driver. If you see it click on it and click Remove at the bottom.
  • Select OK.
  • Remove all instances of the same.
  • Select Apply and OK on the Print Server Properties windows.
  • Close Devices and Printers. 
  • Restart the PC again.

Download and install printer full feature driver
