Make sure you removed the protective tape over the print cartridge head.

Here is the support website for that printer...

Hi. I cannot find where to check the ink level in my deskjet 3500. Can you help me? - thanks.


When you installed the printer from the HP-supplied CD-ROM, you installed the HP Printing Assistant. Use its "maintenance" tab to check ink-cartridge levels.

Or, open Control Panel, and open Printers, and right-mouse-click the printer, and choose Properties, and you should be able to use a utility program to check the levels.

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.

My hp Color Laserjet 3550 Printer wont print black when it is out of color ink


The 3550 won't print in any color if any of the colors are out. You'll have to replace the color ink that's empty to get it to print.

In the future, if you're just printing black and white, you can select "Print in Grayscale" from the print properties to just use the black ink cartridge, which will help the color cartridges to last longer.

Hp 3550 printer color cartridge printing but black not printing


Perform print head cleaning and also try to take a test page and ensure that ink is properly injected out of nozzle.
If this doesnot work take out the cartridge and clean the contact and reinsert the cartridge .
