F380 deskjet - error - refuses to pront

The error light is on and the help says there is a prob with the cartridge, it first stopped working in the middle of printing and hasn't worked since, i have changed the cartridge but still no joy - error message says the colour cartridge is either incompatible (it isn't) or empty (i've put a new one in).

    I've got the same problem, but my printer is fairly new. under one month old. It's the same printer. One minute the colour cartridge was almost full,. I was working on an assignment and I accidently hit the 'print' button. so i cancelled it. then i noticed the colour cartridge button was flashing and a screen popped up and said 'cartridge problems'. i've been trying EVERYTHING but nothin is working. i'm totally screwed for my essay.

I have this printer with the same problem , worked fine for 1 year, printed over 1600 pages total ( according to the built in HP program that records how many pages I printed and how many times I used the printer) then it stopped printing. The ink cartridges are new, the software is fine, and it says ink levels are good. It physically goes through the motions of printing, loads the paper, makes all the normal sounds it used to and pushes out the paper when it's done - but the page is blank. I did some surfing and read some info that some HP printers are pre-programmed to stop certain functions so you buy a new printer. I know that might sound crazy. How long have you had the printer and how many pages do you think you printed?

Cartridge failures can happen with OEM cartridges, and can happen at any time. Your best initial move is to replace them. If a fresh set still show an error, repost here.

I had this problem. My HP F380 also stopped accepting professionally filled cartridges too. The only solution was to start buying HP cartridges. Thankfully these are much cheaper on eBay than buying at the RRP in shops or elsewhere online.

Blinking lights plus E sign for cartridge error -


Look carefully to make sure there is no paper jammed inside. Sometimes there can be a small piece of paper that tore-off in the gears causing a paper jam.

I have a HP Deskjet F380 All-in-One. Error light keeps flashing.


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
