Hi Judi,
I'm not sure but if I remember correctly the Hp F380 is a 3 in 1. I have used similar models. But did you install something like this

try a letter with brown letters to see if it is the black ink cartridge Refilled cartridges do that from time to time

SOURCE: i just refilled my deskjet 5740 hp printer

Check that you removed the protective tape. some cartridges have two of these pieces of tape one over the head and possibly on on the contacts to the printer.

If you recently re-filled or had the cartridge refilled or even bought one of the many cheaper replacement cartridges you should read on

Most modern cartridges have an ink level chip built on to them.
Should the level drop below 25% then most of these chips lock up and will not reset.

Re-filling them will have no effect

If you are lucky you should be able to find either a
chip resetter
around on the INTERNET or maybe even local

OR

Even better empty cartridges that
never need to be reset.
The second option is my preference

I realise these are not for your specific printer but there are others listed on both those sites as well.

cheaper cartridge problems have been on the rise recently and that is for ALL makes of printer.
If you try to clean the contacts be VERY careful cleaning contacts and ONLY use isopropynol on a lint free bud or cloth.
Also be very gentle.

I have seen the contacts cleaned and cartridges ruined with other methods of cleaning.
Rubbing too hard can also cause a badly set chip to move making it inoprable.

I dont like full prices replacements either which is why I always provide the links
I usually reccomend that people take back any cartridge that does not work right from the get-go.

I dont know of anyone who has had a problem doing that be it a shop refill or otherwise.

No matter if I paid $1 or $100 for a cartridge I would still expect it to work

5740 hp officejet printer streaks on scan or copy


The glass is smudged or dirty or the scanner bar may have dirt on it. Cheaper to just replace the machine.

My hp 5740 won't print for my new hp laptop, but prints for an older Toshiba laptop. I tried downloading driver softwear, but nothing is helping. Please help


What OS does your new laptop have? If Windows 7 or Vista, the driver is in the OS. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=uk&product=357202& has more information.

For Windows 7, the install is easiest if you have Windows Update set to automatically download and install updates for hardware. Click on the Windows key, in the Search Programs and Files box, type "change device installation" without the quotes. Click Change device installation settings, and the appropriate window will open. Select Yes, do this automatically (recommended) if it isn't the current option. Then Click Save Changes. Restart your computer if needed.

Then plug in the printer's USB cord to the printer and turn it on. Then connect the cable to the computer and watch for a Your devices are ready message.

If you have already connected the printer to the computer, but did not have Windows Update on automatic. Click the Windows key or the Start button, click on Windows Update. Look for any HP updates in the list and install. Try checking for new updates if you do not see the update.

Please note that you will lose some of the features of the printer. (the button for PhotoSmart Essentials will not work for example.) You will also need to set Printing Properties from File> Print > Properties instead of HP Toolbox.

I hope this helps.

HP Deskjet 5740 printer both orange lights are blinking and wont print


  • I replaced both carts with HP brand, no joy.
  • I cleaned the cart/printer connections, no joy.
An interesting aside is that if one or the other cart is removed, the appropriate LED goes out and the other blinks. At least some of the sensing circuitry sees the cart.

Anyone have a schematic of the cart/printer electronics?

HP DeskJet 5740


i think ur talking about the black ink cartridge...ideally it should not get stuck but plz check if there is any plastic piece which is blocking it or there is any latch.If it gets stuck frequently its time for u to get a new printer.
