Question about HP Color LaserJet 4550n Printer

2 Answers

Hp 4550n color laserjet printer prints blank pages nonstop.

I have to turn off my printer to get it to stop printing blank pages. I tried troubleshooting and resetting but it didn't work. I cleaned my transfer belt with an air compressor but it didn't work. I have 59% life left on my transfer belt so this is not the solution. Is there anything else i can do to get my printer to work properly?

    I unplugged the printer for 5 hours but it didn't work. Any more suggestions, i'll try anything.

    I checked the silver contact but it didn't help. I'm open to more solutions

    Did you try unplugging the printer and letting it sit for 4 hours and then try plugging it back in?

Hi, I notice you have ruled out the transfer belt as asolution because it has 59% life left. Not to be rude but this does not exclude the transfer belt as the problem. I am 98%-100% sure that if you change the trasnsfer belt you will solve your problem.

I was doing work for a large corp. that sent a guy from Ohio to Colorado twice for this problem before he asked my opinion I told him tranfer belt. He was a Hero.
Hope this helps.

Ok...On the top of the drum on the right hand side there is a sliver contact. This connects to a sprung brass contact inside the printer. Check to make sure that it is moving freely.

My HP color laserjet 4500 is printing only blank pages


This is usually the Transfer kit, but if the image drum or one of the power supplies goes bad, that can also give blank pages. The Drum problem for no print is usually a grounding/connection problem. Power Supplies are a complicated repair, but these printers aren't too bad to work on. You can buy good used one's fairly cheap on ebay, though. Should consider going to a later model CLJ if you replace with a used, though.

Printer prints blank pages.


 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.

Color laserjet 4550n - printer will not print. It indicates that it is ready, however, it does not seem to accept print jobs that are sent to it.


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.

HP Laserjet 1500 Color, Print out Blank


Hi devi960:
Pages print, but all
colors do not print or
the pages are
completely blank.
One of the print cartridges might be
low or empty.
Run an engine test and see if all four colors print. If
not all colors print, replace one or more of the print cartridges. If the
engine test is successful, replace the formatter.
If the printed pages are completely
blank, the file might have blank
pages.
Check the file to make sure that it does not contain blank pages.
A print cartridge might be low or
empty.
Check the printer control panel for a Supplies Status message,
print a Supplies Status page, or use the embedded Web server
(HP color LaserJet 2500 series printers only) to see the levels
remaining in the print cartridges. Replace any print cartridges that
are low or empty. Messages are not created for non-HP print
cartridges.
If you are using non-HP print
cartridges, one or more print
cartridges are low or empty. The
control panel lights do not indicate
low or empty for non-HP print
cartridges.
Replace one or more of the print cartridges.
Font DIMM might be selected but the
font DIMM is not physically installed in
the printer. (This issue applies only to
HP color LaserJet 2500 series
printers using an Asian-language font
DIMM.)
In the settings for this printer, clear the Font DIMM check box on
the Configure tab if no font DIMM is installed in the printer. Select
the Font DIMM check box only if the font DIMM is physically
installed in the printer. If you think that the font DIMM is installed,
make sure that it is installed correctly.
The paper curls when
exiting the top output
bin.
The paper needs to print to the
straight-through paper path.
Open the rear output door to print to the straight-through paper
path. Remove each sheet as it exits the printer.
The stack was slightly curled when it
was placed in the tray.
Turn the stack over in the tray.
The paper does not meet
specifications.
See the user guide for information about print-media specifications.
If you are printing on light media, the
Type setting might not be correct.
Select Light in the Type is field in the printer driver.

HP LaserJet 3550 spits out blank paper when job sent from computer but prints fine when printing directly from printer


Try connecting the printer via the USB port on either one of the computers. Then test if the machine prints fine then likely possibility is that the Network interface card is faulty remove the network card and install in a different slot and test. If the same thing happens then reinstall the drivers and test.

Hope this helps
Thanks J
