Make sure the covers are closed completly. It will not print unless its closed. If its not that, then check to make sure you didn't knock one of the cables loose inside the printer, and make sure the belt that moves the cartridges is still intact and is not jammed.

The yellow light and the green light underneath it are blinking and we cannot get them to stop blinking. The printer won't print!


Flashing yellow is a universal sign for your out of paper and flashing green means you have a page pending make sure you have the right printer selected if you have more then one in your network and if you done have the verison Patch of your printer saved on your computer you can go to the manufactures website and they will have it

I have an HP deskjet 5550. I had a paper jam earlier but cleared it. After reseting, warning light still comes on. Printer makes clicking noise when I first turn it back on.


First off how long have you owned the printer? There are several possibilities at this point. Possible paper still jammed or damage done to a part while clearing the jam. Once I have more information I can assist you further.
Thank you,
Lee

Lights flashing, printer won't print as a result of a paper jam


Hi Girlemom. Just had the same problem here. Lift up the lid and slide the ink cartridges to the left. If they are stuck in the middle, this will prevent the printer from starting properly. Then, unplug it, plug back in, and turn on. It should restart normally.

HP 5550 stopped


With the power off I manually pulled the print cartridge trolly to the left and then turning the power back on. This fixed the same problem for me.
