I took a printout of a doc from my HP Deskjet F380 to Staples and asked if I needed a new printer. The tech said "no" just go to the printer maintenance and activate the clean printer heads function. When I go to "services" and then click "Service this device" I get an error dialog box blue title line reads Help with Printer lights and the message in the box: "Cannot perform function"
Somehow, I may have uninstalled printer services, so I reinstalled the drivers, rebooted, and no luck. I really don't want to pay someone to fix this problem. Any ideas or suggestions?
