HP Deskjet F380 - NOT PRINTING - only scanning

I have been using an F380 on an iMac running OSX for at least year with no problems at all.

Suddenly I can no longer print out but it still scans fine. When I send print jobs the jobs show up in print queue as 'finished' but nothing from my printer. Everything connected and re-booted too.

It's incredibly frustrating. The printer is showing as online with all the correct lights on. I am wondering about uninstalling everything and starting again, but sure if I have the disk. Any ideas gratefully received. Thank you.

Remove both cartridges, switch off printer and then on. After cartridge holder comes to the center install both the cartridges. Then it will print the Alignment page. After alignment page prints place the Alignment page on to the scanner and press SCAN button as mentioned in the Alignment page. After completing the scan try printing. It will print the usual speed.
Note: For the alignment process both cartridges should in good working state

I had this problem. My HP F380 also stopped accepting professionally filled cartridges too. The only solution was to start buying HP cartridges. Thankfully these are much cheaper on eBay than buying at the RRP in shops or elsewhere online.

Hp software for f380


The drivers and scan software can be downloaded from here or there are also links to order the CD from HP.

The full download is about 163Mb, if you have a slow connection you may want to order the CD. Typically the CD is free but there is a shipping charge of ~$10.
