Question about HP OfficeJet Pro k550 Printer

2 Answers

Yellow Light on HP K550 indicating open panel will not turn off.

I have tried to unplugging the printer from the power for several minutes and have resecured every panel but the yellow light will not turn off. In fact, the printer makes no sound at all and of course it will not print.

    My solution was to buy an HP K5400 printer for $75 which
    replaced the K550. It works MUCH better than the K550
    and I could even use my old ink carts and print heads.

Cartridge out of ink wont print K550. I reinserted the cartridge unplugged the power, it ran through cycles then it ran 1 paper blank then ran OK. Worked for me. Out of ink worked OK still but still shows out off ink but works mult. prints too fine. I refill my cartridges.

If the printer is connected to your computer - check to see if there is a blinking Red exclamation point / printer icon in the system tray. Sometimes mousing over this icon to see the tooltip is the only way to figure out what error message the printer is trying to tell you.

For us - when this happens, the printer is complaining about an "incompatible" ink cartridge - even though 99% of the time it will print from that cartridge without problems. So try removing and re-inserting all of your ink cartridges too.

How do I fix a television that has no audio nor picture when turned on without having to purchase another?


The only thing you can do is look for television repairers in Yellow Pages and take it in for service, or take to the shop where you purchased it.

You can try pressing the button on the Remote for 'Source', just to make sure you aren't on a black screen with no signal input?

try unplugging your t.v for 10-20 seconds. plug it back in. if your power light continues to flash your t.v is the issue. you should be able to google your issue or check your owners manual about the problem. unplugging the t.v is the last ditch effort. Good Luck!

Xerox 8200 will not boot


If it takes a long time to cycle, then shuts down. I suspect the drum heaters are defective.
Best way to find that out is, turn off yout room lights, then turn the machine on.
There is a fan exaust on the right side of the printer where there are sloted openings.
When you turn the machine, look in that fan slot and see if you see lights inside the printer. There should be a candesent type of glow you see about 20 seconds to a minute after you turn on the machine. Leave it on for a couple of minutes, but if you see no lights the heater or heaters are bad. They are standard 120 volt 150 watt halogen lamps. Tricky to change. But it can be done.
