Question about HP DeskJet F380 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Alignment problem My F380 is printing black text just fine, but when I try to print a color image, it looks like the alignment is off. When I try to click the Service button under my printer's properties, it says this is not available. How can I fix the alignment problem without installing a new ink cartridge? PS- When it printed off the sheet that always prints after you install a new ink cartridge, I accidentally put in a piece of paper that was already printed on. So when I scanned the page like you are supposed to, I'm guessing it threw off the alignment. But knowing the cause is not really helping me solve my problem.

Black ink will not print


Have you tried setting the color to black cartridge only. You may be printing the black with a combination of colored inks. I occasionally have a similar problem. Sometimes I can get the black to work by taking a paper towel dampened with distilled water and holding it against the cartridge print head until I see black ink coming out. Replace the cartridge and try printing again. If this doesn't work try a new cartridge and run through your Printer Settings, making sure they are all set properly.

My Canon Pixma ip6000d isn't printing any images or text. There is plenty of black ink, I ran the tests for alignment and nozzle check. The paper feeds through fine and it sounds and acts as tho


Did you try a test print. Most printers have a option to set the ink color, this is done when your computer asks you if you want to print. Look for an options tab and search for ink color options pick black only and try a test print. The test print is done on printer set up. If all else fails try the manual it usually has a troubleshoot section. Oh yes make sure you have the correct usb port some are configured at a lower level ( mine has 2 different ones a 2.0 and a 3.0 the 3.0 is blue when you look inside of it) my 2.0 port wouldn't set up my printer I had to use the 3.0 port. Hope it helps you some!

Hi

You can bypass the alignment on 5610 by pressing ok to start alignment

after that check by printing a document if your cartridges work fine if not

OKI C5100 alignment issues, I think


FROM YOUR USEWR MANUAL>>>>>>>

In colour menu

AJUST REGISTRATION, press EXECUTE
Performs automatic colour registration
adjustment. Normally this is done on power
on and when the top cover is opened and
then closed. This process accurately aligns
the cyan, magenta and yellow images to the
black image.

Use oki drums and toners, clean led heads

Stripes on Images only - Text OK


Perhaps the CMY color heads need alignment. If you have not already done so, run a head alignment from the driver maintenance section. It will print out a page containing several lines and text, and request you select the closest-aligned images. After this is done, do another image print to check for improvements.
Normally, the printer uses the black cartridge for text and the CMY inks for images (even for black on photo and specialty paper). So when you are printing normal text pages on plain paper, only the black ink is used. A good check for this would be to print a normal text page, but select photo paper in the driver to trick the printer into using the CMY inks to make a substitute black text page. If this looks ok, then you are having issues other than cartridge alignment.
