I have HP Photosmart C4480 All-in-one Printer. It did use to work. The printer only prints about the first half of a page and then it looks very faded. After a few days this would happen again. I have tried to buy new inks but it still does not work. Does anyone know why this happens and how to solve it?

Hi Jimmy-bob,


I understand you're having an issue with your Photosmart C4480 not printing correctly. I'd like you to click here and follow through the steps to test a few things. At the bottom of this document there are also two additional links that you can try.


Lastly I'll include this document as well (I realize the title of it is not the issue you're experiencing) because cleaning the cartridge contacts often helps with issues such as this.


Hope this helps, have a great day!
