Updated February 21, 2017

The HP Deskjet F380 All-in-One is a printer, copier and scanner released in 2007. The compact machine can print up to 20 pages per minute in black and up to 14 pages per minute in colour. The scanner creates images with 1200 x 2400 dots per inch resolution. The major functions of the F380 are easy to set up and use out of the box.


Before trying to print a document from your computer, make sure the printer is connected to the computer and there is paper in the tray. Printer errors occur frequently due to a disconnected printer or lack of paper.

Open the document you want to print on your computer and select the "Print" command. For most programs, the "Print" command is located under "File" in the menu selection. A print dialogue window will appear. Check that the selected printer is the F380 and press the "Properties" button if you want to adjust any of the printer's settings, such as paper type and print quality. Press "OK" to close the "Properties" window when you have finished adjusting the settings and "OK" or "Print" to print the document.

If you want to cancel a print job after it has started, press the "Cancel" button on the control panel of the printer. If the printing continues, press the "Cancel" button again. The cancellation may take some time to be processed by the computer and the printer.


You can make multiple copies of a document with the F380. To make a copy, lift the lid of the machine and place the document on the front, left corner of the glass. Choose the type of paper you are using by pressing the "Plain Paper Type" or "Photo Paper Type," and press the "Copies" button to increase the number of copies. Close the lid and press the "Start Copy Black" or "Start Copy Color" buttons. If you want to cancel the copy job after it has started, press the "Cancel" button.


Check that the F380 is connected to your computer and that your computer is on. Lift the lid of the machine and place the document you want to scan on the left, front corner of the glass. Close the lid and press the "Scan" button on the F380. You will see a preview image of the scanned document on your computer screen. Click on the image if you want to make any edits, and when you are ready click "Accept."
