First of all you need to install the software..these are the steps to install the software please follow the steps below

Two installation options are available when installing the software and drivers from the product CD. The recommended install installs everything your device requires to work, including a suite of software recommended for your installation. The custom install allows you to choose what software to install. The recommended install is designed to work for most users. Use the custom install only if you have one of the following reasons:

  • Low hard disk space on the computer.
  • You do not want the additional software.
  • Errors occur during the recommended installation. NOTE: If errors occur during the recommended install, fix them before doing a custom install.
Recommended install Complete the following instructions to install the software: CAUTION: Do not connect the USB cable until prompted to do so during software installation. HP recommends using a USB cable that is less than 10 feet (3 meters) long. NOTE: Choose unblock or accept on all firewall messages or the install will fail.

My HP Deskjet F380 all in one printer will copy but won't print


Switch off the printer,un install existing drivers(not to delete), restart the computer, switch on the printer, check whether system is recognized the printer?.. if not,try with another usb cable, no luck? problem with Logic card if available replace it or else go for new printer..
If system is recognized the printer, switch off the printer, run the driver CD.. connect USB cable when dialog box appears, do rest of the installation process. Shoot test page....Best off luck..

DOES ANYONE KNOWS HOW TO SOLVE MY PROBLEM?HERE IT IS..IT ALWAYS OFFLINE MY PRINTER EVERYTIME i print it,he goes offline and the print is unabale to print can anyone help me?to fix..thank you. im using HP...


when you hook up your printer to your pc via USB...can the computer detect your printer? does it prompt out any msg such as new device is installed and ready to use or did it ask you to install the printer driver?
if your pc can't detect your printer, replace the USB cable and try again.. and try to plug into a different USB port on your pc.. and if all fails, then most probably your printer main board is faulty...

Try downloading the drivers and software from HP.

Uninstall your printer from 'Printers & Faxes'.

Remove your printer from ' add & remove programs'.

Remove your printer from 'Add & remove hardware'.

Disconnect your printer from your computer.

Reboot your computer.

Install the downloaded software from the HP site.

Hook up your printer to your computer.

Your computer should find the new hardware and install your new software.

If not, re-install downloaded software from HP site manually.
