I recently got a Vaio Laptop and I have been attempting to print from my HP Color LaserJet 4550N printer. I have downloaded all HP drivers for vista, and have yet to make any progress. Unfortunately, I do not have wireless at my office, so this has to be connected manually. I can not be sure what I might be doing wrong, since I never had this problem with XP. Any help offered would be most appreciated.

I found some info regarding this at the HP site. Go to this link and you will find the error code descriptions: Good Luck! http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=bpl08400#A10
it a transfer belt issue....there is a test you can perform to confirm. When the first page comes out of the printer blank, open and close the back cover. If the next page comes out with print on it, then the transfer belt is the issue. One thing you can try is take the old belt down to a service station with a good air compressor and then use the air compressor to blow the heck out of the belt until no more toner comes out.
try doing a self test print, if that works then you most likely have a communication problem between your computer and the printer. Try unplugging the usb cable and plug it back in see if you get any response.
Go to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Printers and add a printer.
Select it as a network printer, and stop it searching (unless it finds it of course - which sounds unlikely!)
Then click on "The printer that I want isn't listed"
Choose to add a printer using the IP or hostname, and click next.
Type in the IP address of the printer. This can be found by printing out the network configuration page from the printer.
The port will be filled in for you.
The printer should now be added.
This is a common error code meaning that the printer does not understand a command. Redearch suggests that you try the following:
Be sure the printer does not go thru a power strip, but is plugged directly into the wall.
Check the printer cable, maybe swap it with another one.
Reseat the memory and formatter board.
Lengthen the power saver time to the maximum
Try printing from a different application
There have been cases where replacing the intermediate transfer belt has solved the problem.
