Question about HP DeskJet F380 All-In-One Printer

2 Answers

I have a all in one F388 that I bought in China. However after searching many post it appears I have a very common problem but no one seems to have a solution. Every time there is any type of paper jam it sends a message to my computer that say it is out of paper. After I fix the jam, restart everything, etc I cannot restart the printer. When I select the printer with the job from my XP it says the printer is ''out of paper'' even though the printer itself shows no errors and there is paper.

    I also meant to add that the only way I have found to fix this is to erase the .prn file and then it will work again for a print job or two.

    Thanks for your help. Unfortunately this is China and unless you can make the problem happen every time and particularly when you bring it in they just tell you it works fine. I tried to return it within two days of buying it but it always worked fine when I brought it in. This seems to be a very common problem no one seems to be able to fix. Oh well

Hi there. If the printer that you have is new try to call HP technical support for the replacement of the printer. Usually the warranty of the printer will last for a year. Here are the steps in resolving the problem. Clean the rollers of the printer with lint free cloth that is moist with water. Then try to print. If it would still reoccur try uninstalling and reinstalling the software but if it will not resolve the problem ask for a replacement.I would consider that a junk because that error message is a hardware problem.

CY: Y = Yako (Taiwan) C = China. CY is followed by 2-digit year. CY appears on most models produced in China, and is by far the most common form. These forms are apparently associated with the change to Crafted in China, so post-1996 models only would have this form of serial number.
Some Chinese Gretsch's use a CY serial number.

Operating manual calpump trt-150

There is not a manual posted for that low-voltage power pack.
Re-post question and Describe the buttons clearly, and describe what you know about the timer for possible instructions since timers that have similar buttons also have similar programming, and other known timers may be identical.
The toggle switch on far right appears to be manual override.
The timer is 12 volts, with output for 75-150 watts, implying 14 gauge wire with maximum length 50 foot.
The timer appears to be a knock-off product from Red China with questionable warranty coverage, that is probably sold wholesale under different product number for considerably cheaper price requiring 1000 unit purchase.
You might search low voltage timers from china for a different product number, and possible pdf manual posted under that different product number.
Copy following links to identify possible same-similar timer:
