HP2550N PRINT QUEUE WON'T PRINT UNLESS TURNED OFF THEN ON

My HP 2550N has been installed for about 8 months working fine and I have it installed as a networkable printer along with other printers in my office. It is not attached to any computer only the network . In the last week, Whenever I print something, that print job stays in the print queue and shows as an error however if I turn the printer off then on, everything prints fine. I have loaded new print driver but same problem exhists. Also it does not matter who prints (I have multiple users) same problem. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks, Majickstar (Rich)

This definitely sounds like a driver problem so you will need to delete the old driver and then install the most current driver and patches from HP Support.

Also Go to C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS on your PC and you will see two files listed fior each of the outstanding print jobs. These will have the file extensions .SHD and .SPL

You need to delete both of these files then power off and power on your printer to be able to continue printing.

Check your print driver settings. And if you are printing from any of the microsoft office applications look at the page setup to see if something was changed. Click file, then right near print is the page setup.

Document not printing! The document seem as though it goes to the printer and get lost in neverland. It clears the print queue.


I would update the drivers. Full instructions are on the HP website..Just list you model and search for Drivers.
The latest drivers sometimes help these problems.

HP 2550n will not print


From the HP User's Guide:

Black, Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow Supplies Status lights
These lights indicate when a print cartridge is low (the light is on), or empty or missing (the
light blinks). The lights also indicate when a non-HP print cartridge is installed (the light
blinks and the Attention light is on).

Printer won't print


hmmm...that's a bit odd...you can disconnect from computer, and do a test page, to see if it's a core printer function, or something else(like blown drivers)

HP Color LaserJet 2550n printer - Paper feeding fine. No print!


Have you checked that you are sending the print job using the correct paper tray on the printer? Check the properties of the printer to ensure you are. Check also that the printer is OK by running a test print from the printer and not through the PC. If I remember it's hold the green button for around 7-10 seconds, whilst powering on.
