Printer not printing anything F 4280

Hi @plozzi

Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you.


Try making a standalone copy and check if that works. By this, we can conclude if this is a hardware or a driver issue.


To assist you better, I would like to know the following: 

  • Which application are you trying to print from?
  • Have you tried printing different types of documents like PDF, Word or Webpages and check if the issue persists?
  • Do you get a blank sheet when you try to print from your MAC?

Print an extended self-test report

  1. Press and hold the power button (), and then press Cancel.

  2. Release both buttons. The extended self-test report prints.

  3. Note which cartridges printed which areas of the extended self-test report. Check for defects like Missing lines or streaked bars, Color block with missing lines.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
