Question about HP Color LaserJet 4550n Printer

1 Answer

Hi, I just bought new hp printer all in one a month ago and I have been printing a lot for my daughters school project, so I refilled the ink more than 3 times and it always work, but then this time it shows in my computer screen that I really need to buy the original cartridge,in short my printer is not printing although it is full with ink since I just refilled it. Ehat can I do,it seems like the hp printer is sensing that the cartridge has been refilled many times. Do you have suggestions how to reprogram my printer not to be able recognize refilled cartridges? I cant afford to buy original cartridge they're too expensive. I would appreciate very much an immediate reply. Sincerely, Vivian

Do refillable cartridges cause HP 3650 printer to not print????????


Get new ink cartridges. If they sit that long without being used the ink will dry out in the print head part of the cartridge and clog the very small holes. The clogs are inside the cartridge so wiping the outside will not clear the blockage. In the future if you have to leave the unit without it being used for over about a week you should remove the ink carts and put them in a sealed zip lock bag to prevent them from drying out.

Failure of Printer to Print Color


Try using a new HP ink cartridge. I had the same problem with a printer I purchased off of CraigsList even though the ink level was good. I installed a new color HP ink cartridge and it printed without a problem.

a refilled cartridge IN NO WAY can lead to printer failure
the ink is the last thing on printer and has no effect to mechanical failures.

Printing problems


If you don't use the printer often it is possible that the ink gets dried inside the cartridge, hence you get the print out with low quality or blurred. We suggest you to use original HP cartridges and keep using the cartridges frequently.
Thank you for using Fixya.

I had the same problem with mine but I bought a refill cartridge instead of a new one and went through three refilled cartridges when I found that it was that I needed a brand new one. For some reason, the HP printers and some other printers need to know that you are using the same brand of ink as the printer. if it is another brand it wont except it and it wont let you print anything! So make sure it is a brand new hp brand ;)

Black is full, colors are "low", refuses to print anything


If you have a look on this site you will see there are far more reported problems related to Canon than Epson however the choice is yours.

As to your cardridge problem. The Epson status monitor measures the amount of inkshots used by each cart individually. You know they have chips which indicate when the cart is empty and yet you have not bothered looking for a reset programme. Who's fault is that? The manufacture?

Give this a try, make sure to read the instructins before using.

Black ink doesn't print


I've had it with printers!
I'm on my second one and it's costing me a fortune!
It's cheaper to go to the library and make copies or take a disk to a photo printing booth.
My first printer was a Lexmark x73 it doesn't print anymore and I'm the un-proud owner of two almost new ink cartridges but I kept it because it sill scans and quite well I might add!
My second printer is a HP and very very inexpensive! I ran out of black ink after printing about 10 pages in a lot of black and haven't even thought about trying new ink cartrides yet!
I now go to the library!
The problem with some of these printers is that if you don't use them often enough the jets will clog and it will never print again unless you rebuild it while. Others just use a lot of ink and cost a lot!

You could try paying for a FixYas' Guaranteed Solution as it's guaranteed and someone might have a way to get it going for you again!

Hope this was helpful.
Good Luck!
