Go here, and you can download a manual that has detailed instructions. Here are the instructions from the reference guide problem solver:

Running a printer operation check
If you are unable to determine the source of the problem, performing a printer operation check can help you determine whether the problem comes from the printer or the computer.
To print a printer operation check page, follow these steps.
print test page - r_1.gif Make sure both the printer and computer are turned off. r_2.gif Disconnect the cable from the printer's interface connector, then turn on the printer. r_3.gif Make sure that Letter size plain paper is loaded in the sheet feeder, the CD/DVD tray is not inserted into the printer, and the CD/DVD guide is closed. Holprint test page - font29.gif font29.gif power print test page - fontp.gif turn on the printer. Release only the fontp.gif power bprint test page - font29.gifer the printer starts the operation check, release the font29.gif paper button. 36a_11.gif
Compare the quality of the printed check page with the sample shown below. If there are no print quality problems, such as gaps or missing segments in the test lines, the printer itself is fine and the problem probably lies with the printer software settings, the application print test page - 36p_good.gife interface cable (be sure to use a shielded cable), or the computer itself.
36p_good.gif
If the check page does not print satisfactorily as shown below, there is a problem with the printer. For example, if aprint test page - 36p_ng.gif of the printed lines is missing, this could mean a clogged ink nozzle or a misaligned print head.

A test page prints with the proper ink/text showing up?Have you tried restarting the computer? Have you powered off the printer and turned it back on? You could try reinstalling the printer software and see if that helps.

Won't scan but prints and copies


turn off computer. turn on - does a test page print? You need to unplug the USB cable from the printer and put the test page on the scanner - push scan. This should scan the page. Turn off computer, hook USB back up. Try to scan whatever you are scanning.
Hope that helps!

You'll probably have to replace the exit sensor (lots of people have this problem). Go to YouTube and watch this video: 5fJHykzkfww

You can get the part on eBay for about $10 and it's a fairly simple 15 minute fix.

Test printing


If you've recently changed your cartridges, the printer will try to print a test/alignment page. Note the instructions on the test page indicate what to do to complete the testing/alignment procedure.

1) Let it print.
2) Place the test page upside down on the scan plate.
3) Hit "Scan" and let it finish.

When the machine completes the scanning procedure, you'll be able to switch the printer on and off or reboot your computer without it printing the test page. By Dubbya

HP LaserJet 3550 spits out blank paper when job sent from computer but prints fine when printing directly from printer


Try connecting the printer via the USB port on either one of the computers. Then test if the machine prints fine then likely possibility is that the Network interface card is faulty remove the network card and install in a different slot and test. If the same thing happens then reinstall the drivers and test.

Hope this helps
