Question about HP DeskJet F380 All-In-One Printer
I have installed a new colour ink cartridge for my printer but now when I print some lines/characters are printing properly and other lines/characters are printing very lightly. I have taken the cartridges out and checked them and put them back in the printer but the problem remains
This happens when your print head gets dirty. Just claening the print head should solve your problem. To do this: Click start button > click Printers and faxes. > Right the printer icon > click properties > Here you should find something like "Head cleaning" or "Clean the print head". This option can be used to clean the priter head automatically. If it does not work, you can manualy take out the cartridge and dip it in to IPA (Isopropyle alcohol) solution would clean the head[dip the head only not the complete cartridge]. After a few minutes (10-20) you can fit the dry cartridge the printer. If nothing works try changing the cartridges. Note: When the ink is running out this may occur. The only thing we can do is to replace the cartridge.
