Setting your 5500 to 42" - this is done through the application ( eg PDF VIEWER) when selecting print choose print options or advanced in the next window that appeaers( driver panel) select the tab marked paper, in the next window you are able to set the size of the image and the size of the paper also whether youwould like the printer to transpose the print 90degrees to make more use of the media
alteratively you could open your printers folder select the DJ5500 and right click -select properties and as above choose the Paper tab to set as default the paper roll to the size required
hope this helps - if not please give more details that I might better understand your issue

check on hp.com. click support and driver/ enter the product number in the bar/select the operating system as win 7. i think u must have tried that before.
hey wait let me check ....
ok the win 7 support driver is still not updated on the site so dear you will have to wait for few more days till hp updates the software for your 450c printer.
sorry dude there is no other way out.
Because the 5500 does not print to the edge of the paper it will auto shrink the image to fit the paper ( a 36 inch wide image will shrink to 35.45" when 36" paper is used). Your image will need to be at least 0.55" narrower than the width of your paper to avoid this. so: Crop the image if you can, or use wider stock.
you are correct, this is usually caused by the contacts going bad on the carriage assembly. try cleaning the contacts, if this does not help, than you need to replace the carriage assembly. hope this helped.
