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.
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!
uaually the LED blinnks when there is no ink or when it runs low on ink.
But since the LED is kept there to indicate any error happens to the printer....
1. So I suggest that you should take out the printer cartridges and check all of them....shake well before you put it back.
Now open Control panel - printers and fexes - right click HP 5550 - Properties
There should an option to see the ink levels. If you can see the ink levels....it means that printer can detect the cartridges. Now the printer LED should be turned off.
If the above doesn't work, try this;
Check the printer que .. if there are print jobs pending, the LED will blink. Delete the print jobs, and restart the machine.
This should solve your problem.
