You may want to reinstall the printer software to correct this.
The drivers will be different and the software may not run the same due to Vista update.

I have an hp deskjet 5550 printer which used to be connected to my previous computer. My current pc has Windows Vista and although the printer works it just prints in tiny faint text and won't use my new...


Sounds like the working cartridges are badly clogged. Is the new cartridge HP brand or an "internet special"? Try HP originals and see if the machine still works ( I imagine it will). If not, then yes the machine is probably and the end of its life.

The colour ink is not printing properly on my hp deskjet 5550 printer and I can't find how to do a clean


Hi there,
  1. Click Start , click All Programs , click Hewlett-Packard , and then click Printer Assistant .
  2. Click Utilities .
  3. Click View ink levels .
    • If a cartridge is low on ink, discontinue these steps, replace the cartridge, and then try printing again.
    • If the cartridges contain a sufficient amount of ink, continue to the next step.
  4. Click Printer Maintenance .
  5. Click Clean Cartridges .
  6. Follow the on-screen instructions.
PLease note the if you do not take prints regularly there are chances that the ink has dried up in that case refill or replace the cartridge.

Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Thanks.
HAve a good day.

My HP 5550 Deskjet won't print mirror image


You'll need to go to the manufacturer's site and find Vista drivers for your HP. Going from Win 98 to Vista is a major jump. I had to convert from XP to Vista and I still had to go get Vista drivers.

Also, make sure you get 32 or 64 bit drivers for the system.

Since Hp have Vista driver to your printer...to install the driver...do not plug the printer...install the driver that you downloaded (run the program as Administrator)..after you install, if the installation ask for restart..restart your computer...after restart and the whole system finish his task on loading driver and dll ..then plug in your printer...it will pop up message found new hardware. click next and choose automatic find the driver.

what Cable are you using to connect?

Can't find ink levels on my printer


I just had this same problem on my Deskjet 5550 printer. The orange light (ink indicator) was staying on. I found out that all you need to do is just open the front cover to the printer. If your printer is running out of ink, the print cradle will move to either the far left or far right side. If it moves to the far left side, the BLACK cartridge is low or empty and should be replaced. If the print cradle stays on the far right side, the COLOR cartridge should be replaced. Normally, when you open the front cover, the print cradle should move to the center. Hope this helps!
