Hi cat, even thought the unit my be new and have a "new" install disc, the information on the disc still may be corrupted, this is not uncommon, quite the contrary, I would suggest you update your printer drivers, try this, it should help:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop(watch for the light yellow bar at the top of window viewing pane, click on this and choose – download file - . Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done.

It's one or two things. First make sure there is nothing stuck in the printer. Such as, a paper clip, coins, or even a staple. Make sure you take all the ink cartridges out of the printer. Shake the printer and see if anything falls out. Good luck!

I have a HP Photosmart C6380 printer locks up & gives error

it is likely that you have had a jam which damaged the sensor when you removed it (itr if you print lables gunked it up). If it is likely to be gunked up you could strip and clean but to be honest it is probably not worth the time. If this has iccurred following a jam - unless you have another identical machine for spares bin it and get a new one as the parts are difficult to come by and labour will be steep unless you can do it yourself of course

Paper jam on HP C4580 - freed jam but the printer makes a strange clicking noise on pressing the reset button and will not clear!

There seem to be a physical obstruction like a foreig object in the paper pathway.
Try to turn the printer upside down ad shake it.
That is after removing all the paper and securing any movable parts. Don't worry about the ink. they won't fall out.
If you give it a shake you may hear the object rattling.
If you are lucky it will also fall out.
After it fall out keep shaking to see if ther are other objects.
If not you may need to use a small flashlight to examine it.
the common objects are paper clips,
coins buttons and children's krayons. But just about any-ting that is stored above the printer is likely to fall in the paper way.
Goog luck.

I can't get the ink to fit into the slots.

If you have purchased the printer with the ink cartridge then insert the ink cartridges with the GOLD(contacts) facing towards the printer. If you are replacing the ink cartridges, then you must make sure that cartridge numbers are the same as the empty ones.
