LaserJet 3550: override chip on toner cartridge to continue print

I would like to override the cyan cartridge inside my HP LaserJet 3550 color printer. It's not even close to empty but the microchip is refusing to let me print (in any color). I've read that, using the printer's menu, I just need to go through "Menu">"Diagnostics">"Disable Cartridge Check". Unfortunately, although I can see this option, I can't select it. (When I click the green check button, the menu system just reverts back to the main menu which tells me to "Replace Supplies".) Can someone tell me how to overcome this problem?

Disable Carts is for service tech troubleshooting.

You will have to replace. All prints use all cartriges every time.

HP color laserjet cp2025 will not print. Help.


No.

Very few printers will print if they're out of toner, even if the colour toner is exhausted and the print job is only black. Replace the empty toner and if this is the only problem, the printer will continue printing.

Whenever I print color, entire page comes out blue. I have replaced the cyan cartridge (twice) and the Laser Transfer Kit. Sometimes there are thick blue streaks in addition to the overall blue color. What...


Run the "disable cartridge check"
It will be in the Diagnostics.
Once you start the test, you can remove all the cartridges. Put the cyan in the black cartridge slot.
print a config page. If it is all blue, you have another bad cartridge. If it prints correctly(minus the other colors)...continue
Now put the magenta in the cyan cartridge slot. Print the config page again. If you have red all over the page, you have a problem with the slot itself.
Press the STOP button and then select EXIT diagnostics. Put the cartridges back where they all go and run CALIBRATION more than once.
Select/menus/down arrow/configure devce/select configure device
Down arrow/print quality/seect print quality
Down arrow/ calibrate now. Select it and wait.

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 clj 5550 not printing cyan


Check the black cover on the pick up assembly under the cyan cartridge. If it is only a fraction too high cyan will not print. Make sure it is clipped in place correctly.

Yellow Toner leak inside printer


I generally use small soft-bristle brushes to move the toner to locations where I can easily get to it with a small hand-held vacuum unit and just **** it right out.

Do you use original genuine cartridges or refilled ones. It sounds like you have had a leak and need to completely clean out your printer heads, rollers and perhaps do a deep claean as well. You can buy faulty cartridges and toners that have one leak, then the ink continually leaves traces as it prints. When you say callibrated, do you mean you ran print tests and setting tests. Running a print test can often help to diagnose ink issues an d narrow the results down a bit. After a thorough clean, you could try uninstalling and reinstalling unit.
