Question about HP DeskJet 5550 InkJet Printer
Although you got the paper out of the printer, there may still be some small pieces jammed under the print head. You may have to manually move the print head to get at the small pieces. You need to make sure the printer is unplugged before you try this. Once the carriage seems to move freely plug the printer back in, it should move to the right where it will come to rest. You should go through the change ink process, but just take out the one that's already in there and then put it back in again. Also run the head cleaning, alignment, and print test utility before attempting to print. If you still are having problems there may still be pieces of paper stuck in the print head. In that case repeat the process again. I hope this helps you.
Have a great day!
