Hi I've got an HP Deskjet F380 which is now permanently showing an 'E' light and low ink light. It was working fine with occasional glitches with print queues but is now permanently 'in error'...

Clean the electrical contacts on the carriage as well as the cartidge using a soft lint free cloth wetted with iso-propyal alcohol. Clean also the "steel rod" on which the carriage moves.

Wipe clean the encoder strip (a flexible coded PVC strip running through the PCB behind the carriage and hooked at the ends) with a DRY soft cloth (DO NOT USE ANY LIQUID TO CLEAN THE ENCODER STRIP TO PREVENT ERASING OF THE CODE). If still dirty Replace.

Your printer should hopefully start working.

How do I replace the ink cartridge

Open the front panel door while the printer is On. The cartridge carriage will come to the middle, now hold the cartridge and press down and it'll eject with a "crack" sound. Now remove the protective plastic cover from the new cartridge and pushing on to the carriage compartment. You can refer this tutorial from Hp Official Website with well illustrated step by step instructions:

If there is power to the machine then there is most likely something broken in your printer. If there is no power then the carriage is locked. Turn the machine on, when the carriage moves pull the power. The carriage will now be unlocked while the the power is off.

HP Deskjet 5550 cartridge carriage stuck

I have had this same problem a few times, not due to changing the cartiges, but following one of my kids yanking on a peice of paper as it was printing. After I tried all the unplugging and clearing and re-starting, the arm was still stuck on the left. I read on some forum (can't remember where) while the printer is off, to gently push/pull on the cartiges until they un-jam or start to move. I flet like I was going to break it, but it has worked every time.

Hope this helps osmeone else!
