Did you already searched the user manual for troubleshooting on your problem? If yes and the problem remains, you should contact your reseller and ask for help or changing the printer for a new one (if possible test the new printer at the reseller to check if it has the same problem).

F380 deskjet - error - refuses to pront


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?

Ink cartridge (not) installed properly


For the Canon iP1800 printer are you sure you're using the 30 for black and 31 for color?

And make sure they "click" when installed. That should confirm that they're nice and tight in their ink compartments.

Besides that, maybe reinstalling the printer drivers could do something?

Refuses to print in XP - no error messages


Try going to 'add & remove hardware'. Remove the COM ports. Reboot your computer. Windows should find your hardware and install the COM ports. If not, add the COM ports manually. Leave the printer COM port settings on COM port 1 or COM port 2, whichever you prefer.

unplug machine from power outlet. take all carts out. wait 5 min. plug machine to power. wait until machine demands carts. reinsert carts and make sure they are secured. answer display when asked if you have changed.

Refuses to print


Disconnect and switch off printer from pc's usb port. Go to add/remove programmes and uninstall printer software and drivers. Go to printer and faxes folder or go through control panel and ensure the pixma printer is deleted, if not right click and delete. Re-start pc and install drivers from your printers cd rom and re connect printer when prompted and not before (if no prompt when software finishes connect printer). Your pc should then idenitify your printer and auto install drivers. If the same error occurs, it's more than likely a hardware failure, and requires replacing.
