Question about HP DeskJet F380 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

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

When I try to print I get the following error message:

"Incorrect Print Cartridge(s)
The following print cartridge is not intended for use in this printer
Black
Refer to printer documentation"

The Black Ink Cartridge I'm using is specifically made by HP for this printer (No. 21)

I tried re-inserting the cartridge, cleaning it, re-starting the computer but nothing works. Hope you can help. Thanks.

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

Can it (HP deskjet F380 all in one) still print with only color cartridge or only black cartridge ? Or Should two cartridges remain together to print even one is empty ? Thanks


the answer to your question is yes,it can still print with only one cartridge installed.
If you do not have a replacement cartridge, and the quality of your printouts is not a concern, you can still print in ink-backup mode. Consider the following guidelines before printing in ink-backup mode:

  • If you remove the tri-color cartridge, printouts will be in grayscale.
  • If you remove the black or photo cartridge, the product will print more slowly and the colors in the printouts will vary.
    press OK button to clear the error message like cartridge missing after removing one cartridge.

Error occur after cleaning printer


Make sure the cartridges are properly returned to their carriage. Try to take them out and then turn off the printer. After a minute, turn them on again. If the printer ask for a print cartridge, then open the cover and put back the cartridges again.
