Question about HP DeskJet F380 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

All lights are on

My printer cannot be switched on initially. So HP gave me a new transformer. Now with the new transformer, it is permanently on with all the indicator lights on. It cannot be switched off using the power button, only by switching off the main supply.

Check it it must be faulty.if you will do such thing regularly it will damage your printer totally.as direct off will make your printer completly dead because off the short circuit failure.

    check the flexible circuit between the switch and the board.....but make sure you disassemble it properly to avoid breaking the flex-circuit. It takes an experienced technician to check the flex-circuit connector with the board. There might be some broken path or circuit line going to the connector. Use jumper wire if its possible and don't forget to use multimeter to check for continuity of the circuit. (that's the same problem with my f380...all lights are on....and that's the same solution i did..and it works).

How to reset printer setting


Turn off the HP LaserJet 2840.


Press and hold down the "Enter" and "*" keys on the printer's control panel, and turn the printer back on.


Hold the "Enter" and "*" keys until you see the "Permanent Storage Init" message on the device control panel. Release the two keys to perform the NVRAM initialization. The NVRAM initialization takes just a few seconds, and the "Permanent Storage Init" message remains on the printer's display until the initialization is complete.


Ensure that the "Ready" message on the printer's control panel is visible. You can now connect the printer to your computer and print your documents. If the "Ready" message is not displayed and your printer is still stuck in a loop, turn off the printer and contact HP customer support (see Resources).


  • To reset an HP 2840 from your computer, open the HP Toolbox program, click "Device Settings," click "Service," click "Restore" in the Resets section and then click "OK" to confirm the action and restore the printer to its factory defaults.

Hp lj2420 errcode 68.2


The printer permanent storage is
full. Some settings might have
been reset to the factory defaults.

1. Press the SELECT ( ) button
to continue.
2. For 68 errors, turn the
printer off, and then turn the
printer on again.
3. If a 68 error persists,
initialize NVRAM. See the
caution and note in To
initialize NVRAM.
4. If this error message persists,
replace the formatter (see
Formatter).

Hp printer model M1522nf displaying permanent storage init. with both green ready & orange exclamation lights flashing & unit will not function


HI,

This a formatter failure, sounds like the formatter went out while trying to do a hard reset or after updating the firmware,
Try doing a nvram:
Turn the printer off and hold the down arrow and the cancel button
Turn the printer on while holding the two buttons down
Continue holding until you see the permanent storage message and wait for the ready message to display

If this doesn't work call hp and tell them that printer is frozen and will not initialize, this is due to a formatter failure. If it has been less than 2 years since the purchase date then you will apply for a service note and will be able to have the printer serviced for free, Contact hp's tech support at 1800-334-5144.
