HP 2550L Printing Problem

My 2550L printer is no longer printing. It said I needed to replace the magneta toner which I do and did and now when it calibrates it makes a thumping sound and it will not print and if it does print is prints on the left side with a fading effect occuring not even 1/4 into the page.

Magneta Color (Toner) and when I print, the Magneta color does not print. Even on supplies status page, the yellow color section at the bottom is blank where the yellow color should be printed. How c

The Magenta or RED toner cartridge should be removed and double check that you have indeed removed the pull tab located on the side of the cartridge which will remove the sealing tape off the new toner cartridge.
The YELLOW toner cartridge on the other hand if it is not new then it is perhaps empty and needs to be replaced. Another option is to remove the YELLOW toner cartridge from the machine, Tap it and shake it side to side to loosen the toner that is in it, and replace it back into the machine, this will usually make it start to work again!
Good Luck!

Is my 2550L toast????.

The HP 2550 does take a while to print. It calibrates through all the cartridges & then you'll see your print soon after. You probably need your printer professionally cleaned out with a toner vacuum, the squeaking could be coming from the drum or a pick up roller.

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.

Still using color toner when printing in black

Check the black toner cartridge. Most printers that use multiple cartridges will use the black cartridge as long as it has toner in it but will then start using the color toner to do the black/grayscale when the black cartridge is empty.
