Question about HP DeskJet 5550 InkJet Printer
I had a paper jam. Removed the paper and torn pieces. Have removed and replaced the back cover piece, the paper, the paper tray and the lights will not stop flashing. Have unplugged and replugged, have cancelled all jobs. Frustrated! Also the ink cartridges will not slide to the middle when I open the top cover.
Please check to make sure you have followed these instructions to clear the paper jam and check the carriage movement. Also check the mechanical parts described here and here to see that they are correctly positioned and moving freely. For stuck cartridge position, see here.
You may have to reset the printer, as follows:
Here's a key to the lights blinking errors.
