Question about HP Color LaserJet 8550 Printer

1 Answer

HP color laserjet 8550 output is very light (color or B&W) Help!

I was in the middle of printing a run or 350 11x17 Black and white prints on 24Lb bond when halfway through the output went from rich black to a ghost of gray. Have tried printing all different types of paper, new toner, new drum, new transfer drum, new fuser. always the same. Please help me out if any one has an idea. Thanks, Ty

Press Menu button. Then press the <Left> scroll button and <Cancel> button simultaneously. This will take you to the secondory service menu. Press the menu button and select secondary service. Scroll through the menu item and you will see <Clean belt> option. Select it and press select again. This will clean the belt for you. Do it may be two or three times. This will solve your problem.

It sounds like you downloaded the PCL Universal Driver. Try the full solution driver or the PostScript Universal Driver. Both allow color prints.

You can find the user's guide here which lists all the parts and supplies. Here's the cartridge information from the manual:
  • HP Color LaserJet black print cartridge Standard black cartridge CE260A
  • HP Color LaserJet black print cartridge High-capacity black cartridge for CLJ4525 models only CE260X
  • HP Color LaserJet cyan print cartridge Cyan cartridge CE261A
  • HP Color LaserJet yellow print cartridge Yellow cartridge CE262A
  • HP Color LaserJet magenta print cartridge Magenta cartridge CE263A
You can use the HP numbers to look for original or after-market replacements.

Hp color laserjet 2840 - prints one page in color, next in black &amp; white. Yellow ink cartridge light blinking. Says "replace supply, using black only". Yellow wasn't showing as low previously.


Follow each of these steps until the problem is resolved:

Print a printer self-test by holding the power button down with a pencil and opening and closing the top cover four times.
Check the nozzle self-test pattern in the self-test print out. If one or more of the solid rectangular areas are missing, an electrical contact problem may be present.
Remove and then reinsert the print cartridge(s) into the printer.
Print the document.
If the problem persists, follow the steps listed above for cleaning the print cartridges and print cartridge cradle.
Try printing again. If the problem continues, replace the print cartridges.

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 8550 not printing


Disconnect your network cable and printer's hard drive and then power on. Its possible there is a stuck job somewhere.

If that doesn't work, believe or not it could be the fuser.
