    My printer will not print. I have tried unplugging everything and waiting awhile and then replugging. That used to work but alas not this time. The two lights just keep blinking and I get a message that the "printer has stopped". Can you help?

    Even after unplugging the 2 cords in the back, the computer will not reset. The lights keep on blinking.

If you have the $30 or so dollars, look online at www.newegg.com for a cheap printer. Lexmark and HP are pretty dependable printers.

I have hp deskjet 5550 printer,when i was trying to print a document there is no print out, two lights are blinking


Hi, This could be Low-Ink or paper Jam. Try turning off The printer, Unplug from The Mains Electric, for 3-5 Minutes. Turn back On, if Lights Are Still There. Check The Ink-Levels. And Replace Cartridges, if necessary.

HELP PLEASE


Remove one cartridge and close the access door. If the cartridge light goes off, the bad cartridge has been removed. If the light continues to blink, remove the other cartridge and reinstall the first one. If the light goes off, the cartridge in the printer is the good one.

Top light blinking, will not print


I believe that the top light is the low printer cartridge signal. Did you replace the cartridge or just take it out and reinstall it? Did you use a new HP cartridge or refilled cartridge?

Try a new ink cartridge from HP and double check that you have the correct cartridge for your printer. If that doesn't solve the problem, contact HP.

Both ink cartridges?


Both have to be in the printer,even if one is empty.

Read this HP document on the blinking lights code:

Blinking Light


uaually the LED blinnks when there is no ink or when it runs low on ink. But since the LED is kept there to indicate any error happens to the printer.... 1. So I suggest that you should take out the printer cartridges and check all of them....shake well before you put it back. Now open Control panel - printers and fexes - right click HP 5550 - Properties There should an option to see the ink levels. If you can see the ink levels....it means that printer can detect the cartridges. Now the printer LED should be turned off. If the above doesn't work, try this; Check the printer que .. if there are print jobs pending, the LED will blink. Delete the print jobs, and restart the machine. This should solve your problem.
