If you cannot test print page, that it is because the printer is not working.

  • Try uplugging power cord and printer USB cord,
  • Go to Control panel>> Installed printers
  • Remove the printer from control panel, if there is more than one printer that you do not need , remove them all.
  • Restart computer
  • Reinstall drivers, either from printer CD or download from HP website. Keep printer USB unplugged while you reinstall drivers.
  • Plug in printer when asked by driver installation.
If it still does not work test the usb cable, if cable is OK, printer may be faulty, or there is a problem on Windows.

My HP 3550 deskjet will simply not print. It goes through the motions and seems to be printing --but the page is blank or very faint. I have already cleaned and re-calibrated the printer


Check ink-levels -- no ink means no printing.
Run a few more "print-head-cleaning" cycles -- clogged ink-jets cannot spray ink onto the paper.

HP Colour Laserjet 3550 printing problems


I can tell you that it is NOT the Fuser unit. I would change the drum unit first. This would be the most likely cause.

Printer does not function


Friend,

In most cases this is caused by a faulty driver or a broken printer cable. Please try to print an internal test page to ensure the printer itself is working properly, then replace the cable and ensure the driver is pointing to the right port if the internal test page prints properly. Also you could try to print the driver's test page (driver properties > Print test page > answer "Yes" anyway, since answering "No" only produces a bunch of suggestions that won't help you solve the problem!). If this works, the problem resides somewhere between the driver and the application(s) you're trying to print from.

Printer is not loading paper


The blinking lights are probably error codes. By the sequence, you can tell where the problem is. Also, you should be able to hold down certain buttons, when you power on the printer, to get tests.

Check the HP Support Website for more info...

HP LaserJet 3550 spits out blank paper when job sent from computer but prints fine when printing directly from printer


Try connecting the printer via the USB port on either one of the computers. Then test if the machine prints fine then likely possibility is that the Network interface card is faulty remove the network card and install in a different slot and test. If the same thing happens then reinstall the drivers and test.

Hope this helps
Thanks J
