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.

Can I print from my iPad using iP6000D?

Below I have provided you some quick info on the most common app to print with using your iPad. There are more so I will post the address which lists more.

PrinterShare is an awkward app to set up; besides installing it on your Mac, you also have to register an account. After that, on your Mac, you have to specify which printer (or printers) you want to share, whether you want to hide your printer from search results (more on this in a moment), find the remote printer as registered online, select the printer (which is now displayed in two panes of the main Mac application window, and then configure the printer (paper size, "notify me on job completion," encrypt or not, and so on). In addition, a third window appears when you click on the Mac application's "incoming" button, and that provides you with a variety of options, including setting default permissions (automatically download and print from approved users, wait for approval, remove, and so forth).
This all makes sense, in a way, because PrinterShare is designed to enable you to print remotely, over the Web, and to allow multiple users to print to the same machine remotely. (For example, employees can all remotely print to a shared printer.) However, there's no apparent option for simply printing over a local network. And although you can choose to hide your printer from search results (when you are searching for a printer from the iPhone app), it seems that the only way for users to find their own printer is to make it public and find it; then, once that's done, they can hide it from search results. It's a confusing process, in part because developer Dynamix Software attempts to protect users from having their printers hijacked by unknown users. It seems, however, that the first option should simply enable you to link your iPhone to your printer by using your user ID, and that "searching" for printers should be a secondary option (because it would probably be unnecessary for most users).

Hello HP 47000dn when you print a ppt of 8 pages appears the error 49.4c02 Service error

Most 49 errors can be fixed by updating the firmware on the printer. Your issue is very common, especially if you just updated Adobe Acrobat. Go to and search for drivers and software. As you list 2 different printers I do not know which one you have or I would link it. Once you get to the drivers page look in the cross operating system (bios firmware) section and you will find the firmware updates here. Download the appropriate one and follow the instructions in the read me file to install. Post back with proper model number if you have issues and I will provide a direct link.

You need to completely delete and reinstall your drivers and Smart Panel software. Delete the printer from the [Printers & Faxes] menu in [Control Panel]. After that, go again into [Control Panel], then into [Add Remove Programs] and search (in alphabetical order) for the Samsung Status Monitor. Thenclick on [Remove].

After you are finished, reinstall from the original CD keeping in mind not to connect the unit untill the installation procedure tells you to do so.

Be blessed.
