There are no signs of error but the paper comes out blank


Hi Zanda
if you haven't used your printer for that long, your printhead is more than likely dried up and clogged. Try running the "Head cleaning" utility 2-3 then print a "Nozzle check" (find both of these functions on "Maintenance" page under "Printer properties".
If the nozzle check shows any print, you're on the right track. Run few more head cleans or try printing several pages (with LOT of colour) on high (best photo) quality. Combination of printing & nozzle checks works best. Be prepared to waste lot of ink doing this!

If you get no print at all, it's probably time to get a new printer. There are other things you can try eg. buy set of cleaning cartridges, try to clean the printhead by placing some folded tissue soaked with Windex under the printhead or forcing some Windex through the printhead pickup (using a syringe & rubber tubing fitted over the pickup needle - where the cartridge usually sits) etc.

Another way yet is to remove the printhead from printer and soak it in cleaning solution (if if you're handy and prepared to pull your printer apart).

good luck!

My printer simply wont print, I just get blank pages even when printing the test page. I have tried cleaning, deep cleaning nozzle alignment, everything!


HI there,
It sounds like you've done everything right, and it still won't print. Your printer is dead - and you need a new one.

No ink on printed pages


Try to pull out the ink cartridges. Then after 1 minute put the cartridges on. Then it will initiate head cleaning. Just perform the head cleaning to clean clogged nozzles. Then try to print a test page.

Not printing at all


Check nozzle. Is the output perfect? Do head cleaning procedure. Check nozzle again. is there any differences betwen first and second nozzle check? If nozzle check output still not satisfied, better take to service center. It might need to cleaning head manually.

Lines in the print


Nozzle check perfect? No ink drop outside lines? Cyan lines is random position. Print blank pages. It is still appear cyan lines? If yes, it caused by waste ink at bottom plate. Print blank pages more, it will clean itself.

Deskjet F380 is normaly printing but it will print blank


If the printer is printing blank pages, make sure you are using the correct printer driver and make sure the paper size is correctly selected in the driver. If the printer is printing black only, the Ink option in the printer driver may be set to Black instead of Color or a setting in the software may be set to print black only. Also, the print head nozzles may be clogged. From the Utility section found in the printer driver, clean the print heads by performing a head cleaning followed by printing a nozzle check pattern. A head cleaning and nozzle check must be performed as a cycle. After printing a nozzle check, examine the printed dot pattern. Each staggered horizontal and straight vertical line should be complete, with no gaps in the dot pattern. If there are gaps in the dot pattern, continue with another cycle. Performing up to 6 cleaning cycles is not uncommon if the print heads are severly clogged.

Still getting blank pages.


You have air or dry ink in the nozzle chambers, you use the head cleaning facility but when it finishes it asks you to print a nozzle check pattern, click the finish button.

You need to do 4 head cleans and cancel the nozzle check print after each until the 4 are done then allow it to print the pattern.

This will prime your heads and clear out any air locks.

The only other thing I need to check, but it's a bit of a numpty suggestion. If you have not removed the yellow 'tear off' strips, no ink will flow and your chambers will be full of air. If this is what happened, remove the 'tear off' strips and carry out the procedure above.

I hope this helps.

You don't need the utility for this but it would be handy for you to have.

It is quite easy to find, it's on our home page and on the Epson page just below the big blue drop down menu box. It's simply a 'click here' link along side the text "If your printer needs resetting" etc etc.

Good luck!
