    both the articles you recommended were about Laser printers, the HP Deskjet is an INKJET!

  • alexanderosb May 13, 2009

    All your solutions have been focussed on the printer.
    The printer works perfectly with Windows.
    I need a Linux expert not a printer expert!

I have a HP F380 All in One Deskjet Printer Mac OS 10.5.8 Printing for over 2 years using Airport Scanning I need to connect by usb Issue: I reset the settings and can't find the driver I used to...


Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya.
First, Uninstall your HP F380 and then again reinstall it.

If your printer is connected via usb to airport extreme you will have to download and install the following.
1. espgs-7.07.1.ppc.dmg

2. hpijs-foomatic-2.0.2.ppc.dmg


Do this by going to The Linux Foundation (http://www.linux-foundation.org/en/OpenPrinting/MacOSX/hpijs)


Install in the order listed above, they both must be installed for this to work.


Then do the following:


1. Go to > system preferences > print & fax

2. Click "+" to add a printer

3. The HP F380 will be listed with the connection type "Bonjour"

4. Highlight this printer

5. At the bottom of the window you will see the option for "Print Using" and than you can choose something from the drop down menu.

6. Scroll down to "HP" and choose that

7. This now propagates a window full of HP printers including the HP F380 drivers that you installed above.

8. Scroll down until you see "HP F380 FOOTMATIC" and highlight this.

9. Click "add".

That's it, your done and it should work.
Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Hp deskjet 9650 not compatible with Vista 64-bit


Hp Deskjet 9650 printer owner, sorry to inform that there is no Microsoft Windows Vista operating system printer driver solution available for your printer. But there is an alternative way to workaround it so that you can do basic printing with your printer.

As a workaround, an alternate printer driver solution included in Microsoft Windows Vista operating system can be used to perform basic printing to the printer. However you might find that some of the product features are no longer available when using this alternate printer driver, but that is your best option right now.

The alternative HP printer driver that will work with your printer is HP Deskjet 9800.

The Next thing you do is: Install the driver for HP deskjet 9800

5. Select the Use an existing port check box.
6. In the Use an existing port drop-down list, select LPT1: (Printer Port) and then click Next .
7. Under Manufacturer on the Install the printer driver dialog box, select HP .
8. Under Printers , select the appropriate alternate driver for the printer (deskjet 9800) and then click Next .
9. In the Printer name text box, type the printer name and then click Next . The printer driver starts to install.

NOTE: The name of the alternate driver displays as the default name. Change this name to the name of the printer, if desired.

10. After the screen stating that the printer was successfully added displays, connect the USB cable / Parallel cable to the printer and to the computer.
11. On the Found New Hardware screen, click Cancel .
12. For USB connected printer, please proceed to step three . For Parallel port connected printer, please proceed to step four .
NOTE: If multiple pop-up windows display, click Cancel on each window.

Next is: Configure the printer

1. In the printer folder, right-click on the name of the printer and then click Properties .
2. Click the Ports tab.
3. Change the port from LPT1 to the newly created USB port, click Apply .

Last step: Print a test page

1. Click the General tab.
2. Click Print Test Page .

Good luck Cheers!!!

Windows comes with drivers for many HP printers.

You can try to install your HP deskjet 5440 by going to (depending on operating system) "Start", "Printers and Faxes", "Add Printer". Select a local port. Select "HP" and Model "HP Deskjet 5440".

If 5440 is not in your list, or if you want the latest driver, you can download the driver for your specific operating system here:

Never use alcohol, instead use distilled water or just water...
Seems like your cartridge need to be changed, maybe is very old in production date and ink is no more so fluid.
