    I have the same problem- it prints fine, but when it runs, it makes a noise like it needs oil. Is this possible?

Does it make noise when it first feeds paper or when the print module sweeps across? It's possible that there is some obstruction in the paper path or in the way of the print module. Is the noise constant or only when a certain action occurs? Let me know.

SOURCE: HP Photosmart C4380 not printing

Is the printer connected to your system with a USB cable? If so, try these steps
Go to:
Start -> Run
type in "control" without the quotes, and hit OK.
Go to Printers & Faxes icon.
Find your printer, does it say "Offline" underneath it? If so, right click on it and hit Use Printer Online

Double click on your printer, there shouldn't be anything listed in the window that pops up. If there is, go to Printer at the top of the window and select Cancel All Documents. This should clear out the queue. If it doesn't, reboot. Sometimes it needs to be reset to clear everything out.

If that doesn't work, check the port:

Select your printer by right clicking on it and going to Properties (Last item in the list). Click on the Ports tab at the top. What is it set to? Generally, it should be USB001, maybe USB002. If it is set to LPT1, change this back to USB001. This is assuming you are using a USB cable. If it is connected with a Parallel cable, you'll choose LPT1.

If this is set correctly, try changing the port on the back of your computer that the printer is hooked up to. Try a different USB cable. Also try unplugging the power from your printer and plugging it back in. Maybe it just needs a good old fashioned restarting. Try restarting the computer, even.

Failing all this, I would try another USB device plugged into the same port with the same cable as the printer. If it works, you know the USB ports on your system aren't broken. In this case, it is most likely the printer itself and would need to be replaced.

HP C4380, Wireless Printing Problem


Do you have other printer drivers installed, if so thre may be a driver conflict. wireless printing requires network connection and also printer drivers. This appears to be a driver issue since the printer shows up on the network. I would try reinstalling the drivers.
