Turn the printer off, press the FEED key and hold while turning the printer on. When the status LED flashes once, let go of FEED. The printer will to a calibration, print out a config label and then should be ready to go.

Hope that helps !

How to fix when printer print letters cut at the bottom


Go online to HP and download the latest driver updates. Install them. Try printing again. If that takes care of the problem fine.

If that doesn't work your toner cartridge may be low. Try putting in a new one and see if that takes care of the problem

If neither of those work, and If you know somebody who will lend you a printer and the necessary drivers, install the drivers, and try printing with that printer. If the problem persists then the is your computer. However I don't think that's what's going to happen. HP used to make high quality printers - now they don't. I had to junk one after a year.

Drivers first - they're free! Toner cartridge second.

Good luck!

Lexmark x3470 message "printer cartridge missing"


Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

F380 deskjet - error - refuses to pront


I have this printer with the same problem , worked fine for 1 year, printed over 1600 pages total ( according to the built in HP program that records how many pages I printed and how many times I used the printer) then it stopped printing. The ink cartridges are new, the software is fine, and it says ink levels are good. It physically goes through the motions of printing, loads the paper, makes all the normal sounds it used to and pushes out the paper when it's done - but the page is blank. I did some surfing and read some info that some HP printers are pre-programmed to stop certain functions so you buy a new printer. I know that might sound crazy. How long have you had the printer and how many pages do you think you printed?

Not printing


This is the information I received from another person when i ask for help. I did exactly as it said and my printer works fine now. Try it and see if it works for you. Good Luck!

First download and run "CleanupUtility.exe" from: ftp://ftp.lexmark.com/driver/inkjet_drivers/Cleanup/

Then unplug the printer's USB cable and restart your PC.

Then download and run the printer's drivers/install program for Vista, from: http://downloads.lexmark.com:/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:548:0:0&emeaframe=&fileID=10374&searchLang=en&searchLang=en&os_group=Windows%20Vista

Only plug the USB cable back in when the drivers/install program tells you to.

After install, I think it asks for another reboot.
Then all should work fine.

Printer prints backwards/upsidedown


This sounds like an advanced setting on your printer setup. When you get to the print dialog, hit Properties for your printer, then look around there for a "mirror" or "reverse" setting. Different printers use different drivers, so your configuration options are difficult to predict.
