    Look in paper feeder slot with a small light and check the rollers and if you can see any white materials, use a small air can if you can...use a cotton swab dry and see if any dirts come out especially next to the rollers and the shaft that hold them.

    OPen the printer using the manual (seehttp://www.fixya.com/Search.aspx?ctgid=0... and again start cleaning the parts without using any thing that may hurt the rollers...Hope that help and fix the issue...

I have hp deskjet 5550 printer,when i was trying to print a document there is no print out, two lights are blinking


Hi, This could be Low-Ink or paper Jam. Try turning off The printer, Unplug from The Mains Electric, for 3-5 Minutes. Turn back On, if Lights Are Still There. Check The Ink-Levels. And Replace Cartridges, if necessary.

Tip

I followed the steps outlined by nanicool to remove jammed paper from an...


Please perform the below steps.

1. Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge inside the all-in-one printer to dissipate before putting your hands or any metal tools inside the chassis.

2.
Pin down the exact location of the jam. The 3 hot spots for a jam are before a sheet completely leaves the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray and print carriage or between the print carriage and output tray.

3.
Take off the front paper tray if the sheet jammed while still in the front area of the printer. If here, you should be able to see most of the paper.

4.
Pull the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a piece deeper inside the machine.

5.
Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed-tray area and print carriage. Carefully remove the jammed paper.

6.
Use the carriage access door to get at a jam further inside the printer. You may need to remove the print carriage to get to the jam.

7.
Replace all parts and return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.

I have an HP deskjet 5550. I had a paper jam earlier but cleared it. After reseting, warning light still comes on. Printer makes clicking noise when I first turn it back on.


First off how long have you owned the printer? There are several possibilities at this point. Possible paper still jammed or damage done to a part while clearing the jam. Once I have more information I can assist you further.
Thank you,
Lee

Hpdeskjet 5550 had paper jam on page 2 of 3 page document, now dead. Turned power off and on, took cartridge out and put back in, nothing working


Hi,

Remove the jammed paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers and make sure they are dry. Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and replug and try a test print. Also make sure that you have waited long enough for the printer to heat up before giving a print job. Finally, it could be an issue with the paper sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for servicing..

Will not print / cartridges will not move back and forth


I had this happen to me the other night and I had to restart the printer to get the print job out of the que. You could try that.

While it's restarting, unplug the power cord and the usb cable. That should reset it.
