Question about HP LaserJet 2550L Printer

1 Answer

My 2550L stopped printing.

I thought it was because I was low on black toner, and replaced it. The the yellow toner light came on. I was skeptical, but replaced it too. Now the printer is telling me to replace the magenta toner. I know that's OK because I just replaced it a little while ago. Any suggestions?

My company has an HP laserjet 5500 printer. We ran out of yellow toner and did not order a spare. The machine keeps flashing 'out of/replace yellow toner'. We do not have the manual readily...

I do not believe you can get around the yellow toner, in the startup self diagnostic it checks all of the toners, and will not proceed if it has an error. Go to a big box store and either get your toner or a low end grayscale laser printer, sorry I could not be more helpful.

Konika Minolta 2430 DL won't let me print

Look through the menus on the printer for a setting for "Low Toner" -- the choices of what to do are usually either "continue" or "stop" or something similar (my 2430DL has this option setting) -- set this option to "Continue".
My 15 year old HPs also have a similar setting. However, this will keep it printing when the black runs out, so you will need to check your print production run visually as you go along to make sure the quality is what you need

  1. Reinsert or replace the print cartridge.

HP 2550L says toner is low when it isn't

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

HP color laser 2550L prints only in yellow

Hi Mmgrafde,

Press the Go and Rotate Carousel buttons simultaneously. This will calibrate the printer. See if this works.

Otherwise....Remove all cartridges and drum. Switch off printer. Close the lid. Switch on printer and wait until any churning stops. Insert the drum and close the lid. Wait until any churning stops. Put in one cartridge at a time, closing the lid and wait till it stops churning each time. With the last cartridge put in, it will churning longer (calibrating). Try to print from your computer.

It could also be that the toner could actually have run out for the other colors.

HP Laser Jet 2550l

When moving/storing Laser printers, its suggested that you remove all Toner Carts prior to the unit being moved. The Toner "Dust" (If you will) will settle in the bottom of each cartridge, and become compact. (When LJ's are used on a normal basis, the toner is tumbled around like clothes in a dryer).

Sometimes just turning (Shaking?) your toner carts will help the toner flow better in the drum.

I hope this helps you a little.
