Question about HP LaserJet 5550 Printer

1 Answer

Dark Green Instead of Black on Cardstock setting

Hp made me go though a month of paper samples untill they finally said "I have run tests on a 5550dn printer and have the same result as the samples you sent to our print lab." They will not fix or replace.. Come on guys its only 2 months old... and my case number is over a month old.... don't tell me I'm out $3000.00... They said.... "This issue follows the printer model and replacing it will not resolve your issue. I apologize for the amount of time it has taken to come to this conclusion." Any suggestion how to get the "Accurate Color" that they sold me on, come out of the printer? Are there any fixes out there... Just looking for The 4 color version of BLACK to print on cardstock...

If it's only 2 months old (3 now) and your case number is still unresolved, call HP directly and wade through their auto-answer system to the company directory. You're looking for a gentleman named Barry Tutt, he's the Great Lakes Regional Manager and VERY dedicated to customer satisfaction. Sound irate. DO *NOT* TELL HIM WHO GAVE YOU HIS NAME! Just say you got it from a former technician. If he can't get to the bottom of it, no one can. Let me know how it turns out!

I have an HP color jet 5550dn with an error code of 49.0502. What does that mean?


49 error simply means that the print job that was sent contained information that the formatter on the printer was unable to understand. This is most commonly caused by out of date firmware.

If you are using windows go here and download the easy firmware update utility and then run it. This should fix your problem.

Ink does not stick to page on m2727 when printing cardstock. We have tried using different paper settings.


Are you using original HP toners or 3rd party (refills)? We have had issues with some 3rd party toners not bonding properly on heavier media. How heavy a cardstock are you trying to print on? If it is heavier than the highest rated paper for this printer then it may not bond at all, regardless of toner used. The heaviest paper that HP rates for this printer is 43 lb/bond. A lot of cardstock starts at around 65 lb/bond.

My HP C4480 printer is printing red instead of black


My documents were printing red instead of black so I installed a new black cartridge. No it did not solve the problem. Yes I did run the utility to clean the heads. I finally went into the Printer Properties, advanced settings and set Print in Grayscale to Black Ink Only and it worked. You may need to turn off other settings related to photo printing.

Cannot use die cuts


No I don't think your machine is defective. Here are some "sandwich" ideas to help you. I know you asked just for Cuttlebug dies; I included other "sandwiches" that you can do with your Cuttlebug. If you need further assistance feel free to contact me.


Cardstock
Chipboard
Magnetic/ Metal Sheets & Thin cork (Media)

Cuttlebug Dies
Plate “A”, Plate “B”, Die (cutting side up), Cardstock, Plate “B”
Plate “A”, Plate “B”, Die (cutting side up), Chipboard, Plate “B”
Plate “A”, Plate “B”, die (cutting side up), Media, Plate “B”

Cuttlebug Embossing Folders
Plate “A”, Plate “B”, Folder (with cardstock inside), Plate “B”
Plate “A”, Plate “B”, Folder (with chipboard inside), Plate “B”
Plate “A”, Plate “B”, Folder (with metal sheet inside), Plate “B”
Nestabilities
You will need Spellbinders Tan Embossing Mat to emboss in
Cuttlebug™ machine (or a plumbers gasket cut to size, or some use a mouse pad)
Cutting Sandwich - (Stack from bottom up)
1. A plate
2. C plate
3. Spellbinders Die (cutting side up) that means the side with the
ridges
4. paper or cardstock
5. B plate
6. Run through Cuttlebug™ machine.

Embossing Sandwich- (Stack from bottom up)
*Remove C Plate for embossing sandwich
1. Place A plate on bottom
2. Leave die face up on A plate with die cut still in the die.
3. Place one Spellbinders Tan Embossing Mat on top of the die.
4. Use 2 or 3 pieces of cardstock to shim.
*Cautionary Note: Using more than 3 pieces of cardstock to
shim Cuttlebug Embossing sandwich will result in B Plate
breakage. When using Spellbinders Edgeabilities card making
dies, shim with only 2 pieces of card stock.
5. Place two acrylic B plates on top of sandwich and run thru
Cuttlebug machine to emboss Spellbinders die cuts.
6. Turn die over and use like a stencil with inks and chalks for
added detail.

Sizzlit Dies

Not a Problem but a Question


Use a good photo-grade paper! That's it!

I've some old vintage pictures that I have scanned and re-printed ... they turn out beautifully!

Purchase a good quality paper for better results. I have some HP Paper as a sample, and it looks good. I had a friend who had some no-name paper and I borrowed a few sheets and they look cruddy. :)

Paper jams in manual feed tray when using 5371 cardstock however, printer works fine when 8315 cardstock is used (except for a black smudge spot in center of print-out). Printer is a HP 3505.


The Reason in roller of the seizure of the paper, or in brake platform under roller, wipe the roller by facility for rubber or for cleaning the surfaces, or change the roller and brake platform. The Roller seizure papers has a resource of the wear-out and brake platform under roller too. Good luck
