Re: My LaserJet 8550dn won't print

Did you download the print drvers for the printer. the printer is not a plug & print . you have to download drivers. if you do not have the disc you can go to to get them. make sure that you download the postscript drivers it will alow you to print any font plus extras. hope this helps.

When i give a print command this error apears on the paper : pcl xl error subsystem:kernel error:illegaltag operator:0xfe

1st: turn off your printer, wait 5 minutes, turn on again. Try to print again and see if the problem is solved. If this doesn't work:
2nd: de-install your printer from your computer, download the latest driver for your operating system, install your printer again. And if this doesn't work, download the latest HP Laserjet generic driver and install it again.
You can find the drivers on the support page from HP, searching for the model printer that you have and select the driver for your operating system (windows xp, vista, 7..)

8550dn printer showing out of memory message? Is there a way to clear this without having to do all the resets? Or just how to clear the message?

If the error is '20.00 Insufficient Memory'
No action required. It is simply out of memory because the file you printed was too big.
If you keep getting the message, simpify the print job and/or add more memory to the device.

You could also..
Change the setting in the <Configuration Menu>, <Clearable Warnings>, from 'On', to "Job'.
This will get rid of the message a bit quicker.

Labels only jam when printing from file

I cannnnoooooottt believe what I am reading! If you are going to use labels on a laserjet, you need to get thermal labels! The other cheap labels are made for inkjets, matric, or daisywheel printers. The laserjets have heat rollers that will melt plastic. It will melt the gum on the non thermal labels and get them everywhere!!
