HP Deskjet 380 - wont print

My deskjet wont print - each time i press print i get an out of paper message - and there is plenty of paper. i have checked for paer jams and that the back is securely on. there appears to be no obstruction to paper feeding in. when the printer tries to print, it makes a screeching sort of noise. Previous HP inkjet printer used to do this but it was fairly easily cured by cleaning the guide tape where the cartridges ran but not easy to get to without diassembling - is this straightforward or once having got the top off will it go back together easily?

ANy help gratefully recieved

Re: HP Deskjet 380 - wont print

I ran one copy of an email of one page and forgot to load paper so now the printer runs ok but the black and white and color are hardly readable they are so light.

HP deskjet F380 - 'status: paper jam'. There is no paper jam!

Unplug the power cord and while doing that make sure printer is powered on i mean do not turn off the printer using the power button. When you unplug the power cord than press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Than release the power button and connect the power cord and then try to print.

Out of paper error

Hi, the HP printers tell you what's wrong by using the lights on the front. Depending on which lights are on/flashing/off will give a different fix.
If you can let me know the sequence of lights (i.e. resume light blinking plus cartridge light on etc).

Well, one way is to just take the paper out when it tries, and when it gives you an error message tell it to abort the print. Another way is that the second it starts printing press the power button, or cancel button if it has it, that will tell the printer to stop printing.
