Question about HP DeskJet 5550 InkJet Printer
I replaced my black ink cartridge; printed out a couple of documents and now a few days later nothing will print. There are no error messages or anything unusual. The printer acts like it's printing, but the pages come out blank. I do have 2 pre-school aged kids which occasionally get into things....could they have done something to cause this or is the printer just dead? It's 4 years old.
Hurray! Alleluya! I read the book! HP5550 supports USB connection, went and bought a USB 2.0 cable for $15.27+tax at local Wal-Mart, reinstalled printer software as directed, and voila! It prints fine again. I had forgotten that only reason I was using serial port was because I bought this printer when I still had my trsty IBM Aptiva, which of course did not speak USB.

Try to re-insert the cartridge on the carriage cause maybe it doesnt mesh proper with the printhead anymore.
