SOURCE: hp 5550 printer problem

Did it eject the paper? The paper may have been crooked or became so in the printer. Check the Paper jam area first. If there is nothing there, Let's try a simple reset of your printer.

Go to Control panel>printers and faxes>click on your printer icon and under documents click cancel all documents.

Turn the printer off

Remove the paper from the tray

Unplug it from the power source

unplug it from the PC

Now open the paper jam door and gently push the paper roller forward until it clicks

Now do everything in reverse order until you get to turning the printer back on. give it a few minutes and see if it resets itself.

when you reload paper, besure that it is aligned carefully and the holders are pushed into place.

Let me know if this helps. Good Luck!

Deskjet 5550; Windows 7; Microsoft Office 2007; not printing


That is strange
Try changing the default to a different printer (Microsoft XPS Document Writer) see if it prints to it...

Then (If that works) try switching the 5550 back to default.

If that don't do it, uninstall thee printer, reboot and reinstall the printer.

Hp5550 not printing


Hi,
The first thing you need to do is make sure you have the correct driver so that you can re-install your printer. Then you need to go to your Start Menu and select Printers and Faxes. Delete any printers that you don't use or no longer have, plus any instances of the Deskjet 5550. Go into your Start Menu and select All Programs. Look for the Deskjet 5550 and put your mouse on it. Look for the Uninstall link then select it. Once it has finished uninstalling the program restart your computer. Insert the CD that came with your printer and follow the instructions. Your printer should now be re-installed and working. I hope this helps you solve your problem. Good luck!

Multiple copies


Look for a small "Collate" box and make sure it is checked. That way it will print each set in order.

Both ink cartridges?


Both have to be in the printer,even if one is empty.

Read this HP document on the blinking lights code:

Trouble with duplex printing


I think your problem is that the 5550 supports manual duplex printing. Print every other page then feed them through again. Never tried it though. Dave Reed
