This is the time to get your printer serviced if you have proper technical knowledge you yourself can also do with proper tools.

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.

Simple things. OS doesnot support the driver & ask for updating. Its mean you might update your OS or you changed the OS . So use the driver which is support the driver. You can find this driver on the website of HP. Thanks.

If I only put in a black ink cart. why is it not


Yes you need colour carts in as well. Most inkjet printers ude colour to print B&W as well as the black cart otherwise it ends up looking like a photocpry.

HP DeskJet 850c will not print colour


It could well be the printer head (the area where the cartridge locks into the printer) has gummed up contacts. Take a soft, lint-free cloth and wipe down gently wipe down the face of the contacts. Keep wiping until all residue is removed. Reinstall a color cartridge and then run the printer's software alignment utility (this is part of the software that comes with the printer).

HP deskjet 3420 won't print in black.


It's probably because the colour cartridge has run out, it needs a colour cartridge aswell to print black.

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?

Printing photos


its ok I solved it! I didn't realise that all the photo cartridge does is gloss over the colour picture produced by the colour cartridge. I simply had to replace the colour cartridge which had run out, so now its all working perfectly!!
