Prints blank pages and gibberish


You may have to shut down the printer completely, including disconnection of power. When you reapply power, the printer should be indicating it is offline so you will have to put it online again.

The Print Diagnostic Utility diagnoses and resolves common printing problems and communication problems, including:

If you prefer, you can skip this information and go directly to downloading the tool .

  • Connectivity :
    • USB: Ensures that the USB connection from your computer to the HP product is working correctly.
    • Network: Ensures that the network connection between your computer and your network is working correctly. If the tool detects a network connectivity problem, you will be prompted to run the HP Network Diagnostic Utility for better results.
  • Spooler : Automatically restarts the print spooler, which sends print jobs from the computer to the product, if it has been stopped.
  • Online status : Checks if the product has been paused or set to offline, and then sets the status back to online if necessary.
  • Device manager : Checks for problems in Device Manager that would prevent printing.
  • Print queue : Checks for and clears pending print jobs in the print queue (a log of print jobs waiting to print).
  • Port : Checks the port settings for the HP product.
  • Driver : Checks for alternate-driver settings.
  • Conflicts : Checks for conflicts with other drivers, such as other printer brands.
  • Default printer : Checks the default printer setting and prompts to select the HP product as default (optional).

My mom's hp officejet T45 printer now prints gibberish. It started after my sister installed a new ink cartridge for her. Because her documents were printing nothing but a solid black line then, my...


Gibberish sounds to me that ether one of two things is going on.

1. the printer was never allighned when the new cartridges where put in.

2. Depending on the gibberish its printing it could be a communication error with the driver on the computer.

Do not pitch the printer but get help for it like you are doing now! But I would have taken a chat from us to see what the gibberish is!

Prints Gibberish, not the Text - Epson Stylus 460


This is usually due to a corrupted driver. To fix this uninstall the printer using the Windows uninstall software facility on the Control Panel (I am presuming it's a Windows system, if not use the uninstall facility of your OS). Reboot the computer then re-install the printer. If you need more help with the uninstall/re-install processes, report back.

Printing gibberish


gibberish printing is normally a sign of outdated print drivers. Try going to HP's support site and download the latest PCL driver.

Hp deskjet F 380 all-in-one prints gibberish


Ok so the fact that it is printing gibberish means that either A you have not installed the hp software or B the software is not being recognized or is corrupt.

If you have not installed the software that came with it you have to do that so the proper drivers are installed.

If you have the software installed then go to your start menu and then the control panel. Go to printers and faxes and delete the F380 from the list. If there is more than one then delete them all. Then click on the add a printer button on the left. Go through the prompts to add the printer to the list and then close out and try to print again.

If that still does not solve the issue go into the hp folder in the start menu or hard drive and do the hp uninstaller and download the most recent drivers from www.hp.com - on the left side you will see a grey menu that says software and driver downloads click on it and type your product. Then click your OS and download and install the applicable file.

If your printer is printing gibberish or symbols it means that there is something wrong with cable or your computers port. Try to change cable and try to update port driver.
