If there is power to the machine then there is most likely something broken in your printer. If there is no power then the carriage is locked. Turn the machine on, when the carriage moves pull the power. The carriage will now be unlocked while the the power is off.

HP deskjet 5550 - Recommended troubleshooting not working


That's an oldie but a goodie. I bought a 5550 in 2002 and it still works!

1. Try disconnecting it from the computer and bring to a clear area with good lighting (kitchen table or garage work bench). See if you can see anything impeding the movement of the cartridges (you are correct...they should come to the center)

2. Power it up againd with nothing connected to it...see if the cartridges move.

I'll check my 5550 tonight when I go home, because I thought the cartridges came out from the Right Side...not the left. I wonder if they are jammed on the wrong side.

I know it's not much help, but I will check some more. Good Luck!

Can't find ink levels on my printer


I just had this same problem on my Deskjet 5550 printer. The orange light (ink indicator) was staying on. I found out that all you need to do is just open the front cover to the printer. If your printer is running out of ink, the print cradle will move to either the far left or far right side. If it moves to the far left side, the BLACK cartridge is low or empty and should be replaced. If the print cradle stays on the far right side, the COLOR cartridge should be replaced. Normally, when you open the front cover, the print cradle should move to the center. Hope this helps!

Will not print / cartridges will not move back and forth


I had this happen to me the other night and I had to restart the printer to get the print job out of the que. You could try that.

While it's restarting, unplug the power cord and the usb cable. That should reset it.

The cartridges are "stuck" in place - won't move left or right - yellow lights is flashing


With the power off. Push the carriage to the left about 4". Power up the printer. It should go through its normal reset. When it's done making noise look in & see if it went back to the center?
Open Printer & Faxes. Your default printer should have a check nex to it. make sure it is the 5550. Click the 5550 once so it's highlighted. Click file & open. Clear anything that is waiting to be printed. Close all the opened windows. Re-start the Pc.
I should list HP's suggestions too:

Try a test page even is so. Post back...
