Not printing


Check that there still isn't a piece of paper jammed in the mechanism. Also check that the paper out sensor isn't stuck. Delete the item from the print queue and reboot both the printer and computer.

Printer has been idle for several weeks.When I came to use it the printing is broken and faded looking.How do I clean the cartridges?


HP Deskjet 5550 Printer.

The deskjet printers should not be kept idle.

At least once in two or three days, you can take one page print out.

This has to be done, otherwise, the inks both Black and colour will get frozened and sometimes it will become dry at the catridge mouth.

Black Ink is 56 and Colour is 57.

Solution :

01. Manually remove both catridges from the printer carefully.

02. Shake the catridges with full force pointing towards ground. You can find out now, that ink is coming out from the catridges which was frozen or dried up.

03. Clean the cartridge drive with a nice cloth and cleaning liquid.

04. Re install both catridges and take a test print out.

05. Recommended to have a service contract with local HP Authroized printer vendor to have a regular maintenance at least once in a month.

Lights flashing, printer won't print as a result of a paper jam


Hi Girlemom. Just had the same problem here. Lift up the lid and slide the ink cartridges to the left. If they are stuck in the middle, this will prevent the printer from starting properly. Then, unplug it, plug back in, and turn on. It should restart normally.

The cartridges are "stuck" in place - won't move left or right - yellow lights is flashing


With the power off. Push the carriage to the left about 4". Power up the printer. It should go through its normal reset. When it's done making noise look in & see if it went back to the center?
Open Printer & Faxes. Your default printer should have a check nex to it. make sure it is the 5550. Click the 5550 once so it's highlighted. Click file & open. Clear anything that is waiting to be printed. Close all the opened windows. Re-start the Pc.
I should list HP's suggestions too:
