Question about HP DeskJet 5550 InkJet Printer
I've seen other requests to fix this problem on the internet, but most people seem to remain unsatisfied. The problem happened after re-filling my own cartridge to save $. Only the top half of most lines print. Cleaning the cartridge and connections doesn't seem to help.
If you print very much, especially with color, the best solution may be to sell the HP, and get a Canon MP520, it's super fast for an inkjet, the brand name Canon ink cartridges are much larger in (ml) ink, it comes with FULL ink cartridges, not starters with little ink. The color in is in individual cartridges C, Y M (they don't all get used at the same rate) so you will potentiall save lots of money. A Canon brand Black cartridge for $13 prints about twice as many pages as the HP $30 cartridge ... you do the math.
Oh yeah, it's a scanner and fast color&bw copier too.
$129 at walmart (the cost of about 4 HP cartridges) I am confident that you will never buy another HP printer.
Current owner of 3 HP printers, 1 HP laptop and 1 Compaq(HP) laptop, previously 3 other HP printers.
