Question about HP DeskJet F380 All-In-One Printer

4 Answers

Label Printing I use an HP F380 printer and I am having problems printing labels. I am using DECadry labels with 21 labels per sheet. If I print onto a shhet of A4 paper the address blocks print fine and in the correct positions, but when I insert the label sheet, and print the same page, the address block is outside of the margins. I am using Office word 2007 and running Vista. I have uninstalled the printer driver and then installed again with no change in the problem. Can you please help me?

    Got exactly the same problem. Doesn't make any sense. Printing on reverse of the label paper (Apli 3054) and the alignment is spot on. Print on the labels themselves and the alignment is out. Have installed the latest drivers and still no joy.

    Yes, I to am having the same problem, prints great on paper right where the margins are but when labels are put in it prints to high no matter what the alignment was set to. Will also print in margins on the back side of the labels. What is the deal that it can print on the back but not on the label it self?

I had the same issue when using Avery labels, here's what resolved it for me.

Go to Control Panel, Printers, go to the active default, right mouse click, click Printing Prefrences..., change the drop down "Type is:" to 'Other Photo Paper" and apply.

You should then be good to go!

Try taping a piece of regular paper to the back of your label sheet, then run it through the printer. This worked for me. The back of the label sheet is too slippery for the printer to grab, but with regular paper, it works fine.

I work from home and use to do all my own label printing. I would have to admit that I was not really quite the big fan of these printers as my printer was so temperamental and my labels never came out the printer looking professional enough. Becoming fed up of the endless battles with the printer finally decided to look for another solution into getting my labels printed. I found a company called <a rel='nofollow' href="http://www.selfadhesivelabels.com/">Mercian Labels</a> who specialises in <a rel='nofollow' href="http://www.selfadhesivelabels.com/label-printing.html">label printing</a>, they now print all my labels for me at such a slow cost and are so efficient I would never go back to printing my own labels.

    Hi Ernie, its a shame about your printer I hope you manage to get it working. Incase it is of any interest to you I thought I would let you know that a year ago I found a british labels company who were selling of loads of plain labels at really low prices. Not sure whether they are still around but there is no harm in taking a look.

Hello, have you changed the printer settings to accept the type of print job you are choosing and the paper thickness and type. This can affect how a job will print. Also try running an allignment check. Uninstalling drivers is one of the last resorts, but as this did not work, your problem is narrowed to a comuniaction or seting error. Good luck lilacgerry xxx

I want to print a label onto a DVD I am burning using my HP6180 All-in-one printer. Does anyone know how i can do it?


Your printer is not printing straight to a DVD, so you will have to buy self adhesive labels, print on them and then stick the label on the disc. Now, it all depends on what software you have available. Your might have software included with the Photosmart printer for CD/DVD label printing, check your installer CD that came with the printer. If you don't, and use Nero for burning DVDs, you may notice it has a label printing software that comes with it. You will need this type of software in order to print a label. If you don't have Nero, or any other label printing software you can try using some of the free ones that are out there, like Disketch 2.11. There's also a lot of free to try label printing software, like Acoustica CD DVD Label Maker which you can use for 15 days for free. If you have Photoshop and you're good using it, then this is another option to consider (you can download templates online).

Using a label printing software is pretty easy, most of them will have templates that you can open and just edit, or you can start with a blank design and add text and pictures to it. When you are finnished put the special label paper in the printer and click print. If you have special DVD labels make sure you specify that in the printing preferences before you print.

I WANT TO PRINT LABELS ON A HP PHOTOSHOP D5360


You may want to check the ensuite software that came with the printer, and see if it offers label printing. More likely, you can access label printing templates in Microsoft Office or Works, perhaps even Openoffice.org's freeware.

C6180 will not print labels as set out in the avery template. will bunch up as they go down sheet


Step 1 : Change the print settings
The print settings of the HP All-in-One can be customized to handle nearly any print task.
Before changing the print settings, decide whether to change the settings for the current print job only, or to make the settings the default for all future print jobs. How print settings are displayed depends on whether to apply the change to all future print jobs or just to the current print job
Change the print settings for all future jobs:
In the HP Solution Center, click Settings , point to Print Settings , and then click Printer Settings .
Make changes to the print settings and click OK . Change the print settings for the current job:
On the File menu in the software program, click Print . Make sure that the HP All-in-One is the selected printer.
Click the button that opens the Properties dialog box. Depending on the software program, this button might be called Properties , Options , PrinterSetup , or Printer .
Select the appropriate options for the print job by using the features available on the Paper/Quality , Finishing , Effects , Basics , and Color tabs.
Click OK to close the Properties dialog box. Click Print or OK to begin printing.
Step 2 : Print with 210 x 297 mm (8.5 x 11 inch) labels
The HP All-in-One can be used with any software program designed for printing.
This document contains basic information about using the HP All-in-One to print on labels using a software program. For additional information, such as printing a poster, printing multiple pages on a single sheet, and more, see the onscreen Help that came with the HP software.
Follow these steps to print on labels:
· Make sure to load labels in the input tray. Always use letter or A4 label sheets designed for use with HP inkjet devices (such as HP inkjet labels).
· Make sure the labels are no more than two years old. Labels on older sheets might peel off when the paper is pulled through the HP All-in-One, causing paper jams.
  • Fan the stack of labels to make sure no pages are sticking together. Place a stack of label sheets on top of full-size sheet of plain paper in the paper tray, label side down. Do not insert labels one sheet at a time.
    1. On the File menu in the software program, click Print . Select the HP All-in-One as the printer. To change settings, click the button that opens the Properties dialog box.
    2. Select the appropriate options for the print job by using the features available on the Paper/Quality , Finishing , Effects , Basics , and Color tabs.
    3. Click OK to close the Properties dialog box. Click Print or OK to begin printing.

Does it still print on plain paper? Check to see if you are missing one or more labels as they may have come off and onto a roller or other part. I've found that label sheets with any labels removed prior to printing are always prone to loosing labels in the process of traveling through the printer.

Paper feed


The feed rollers are slipping on the surface of the label, causing the page to load incorrectly. There is no permanent solution at this time. Try one of the following workarounds to correct this issue. Workarounds Workaround 1 Adjust the top margin using Page Setup.
  1. Click File , then Page Setup in the program being used, (accessing Page Setup may vary from program to program. Refer to the Help file for that program).
  2. Adjust the top margin until printing is correct on the label.
Workaround 2 Manually print one sheet at a time. Place one sheet of labels in the input tray at a time, printing only that page. Repeat for all pages of labels needed.
