My HP 5550 Deskjet won't print mirror image

I changed computers a while back, but kept the HP 5550 Deskjet.
I don't know if it's because I went from windows 98 to Vista, but now my printer won't print mirror images.
Any ideas?

You'll need to go to the manufacturer's site and find Vista drivers for your HP. Going from Win 98 to Vista is a major jump. I had to convert from XP to Vista and I still had to go get Vista drivers.

Also, make sure you get 32 or 64 bit drivers for the system.

Does my HP Deskjet D2660 mirror image print


HI,
I had this same issue until i went to Control Panel>Printers> right click on printer in question>Properties>under General tab click Printing Preferences>under Advanced Tab click Mirror Image off>just in case that wasn't going to cure my mirror image turning right back on I went to the Printing Shortcut Tab and re-saved my shortcuts, checking back to Advanced Tab to make sure that the Mirror Image still showed off. I've had no re-occurrence of that issue since.

Thanks,

My Printer HP Deskjet D2300 is printing in mirror image format. how to release the problem to normal method


Issue After downloading and installing Windows XP Service Pack 3 on the computer, the HP product prints text and images backwards or as a mirror image of what appears on-screen when printing from any program. Solution To resolve the issue, turn off mirror imaging in Printer Preferences . To do this, use the following steps:
  1. From the Windows taskbar, click Start and then click Control Panel .
  2. If your computer is in category view, click Printers and Other Hardware , and then click Printers and Faxes . If your computer is in classic view, click Printers and Faxes .
  3. Right-click the HP product from the list of printers, and then select Properties . The Properties dialog box displays.
  4. From the General tab, click Printing Preferences . The Printing Preferences dialog box displays.
  5. Click the Advanced tab.
  6. Under Printer Features , click Mirror Image , click the down arrow to the right of the field, and then click Off .

Deskjet 5550; Windows 7; Microsoft Office 2007; not printing


That is strange
Try changing the default to a different printer (Microsoft XPS Document Writer) see if it prints to it...

Then (If that works) try switching the 5550 back to default.

If that don't do it, uninstall thee printer, reboot and reinstall the printer.

Is there a way to print 'mirror image' for an iron-on for a Deskjet 5550? I need to flip the entire document (one page) so it prints backwards.


You simply need to create the image in MS Paint program etc, all you have to do is "Invert" the color. get the black & white image into paint and invert the colors.

Only printing top lefthand quarter of the image on screen


Try switching the computer and printer off, then detach all the leads between computer and printer. Plug the leads back in very carefully and firmly. Also check that your internet connection (ethernet) leads are firmly seated in the back of the PC, and your router. Then switch back on. Any improvement? Does replacing the leads help?

I had a very similar problem on my 5550 model (it wouldn't print from internet) - and found this solution by accident. Perhaps it will help you. If not, hope someone else can help.

If you have the $30 or so dollars, look online at www.newegg.com for a cheap printer. Lexmark and HP are pretty dependable printers.
