Question about HP DeskJet 5550 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Prints two bars across top only

My HP deskjet 5550 suddenly stopped printing.
It only prints two bars across the top and one across the bottom of every page.
I've done all the troubleshooting and nothing works.
I did install additional memory a few days ago.
Is this related?
Thanks

My deskjet 5550 printer stopped printing in color it only print black ink i have replaced the color cartridge still only prints in blank only; i have tried calibrate printer and clean cartridge options;...


If the Cartridge and printer alignment is successfull and you are still not able to print in color, mostly the Color print is disabled in your pc

Click on START Button
Click on CONTROL PANEL
Open Printers and Faxes folder
Highlight the Printer icon for Deskjet
Right click on the printer icon and choose Printing Preferences
Under Printing preferences, you will find Printing mode - It must be on BLACK or GREY SCALE, Change to COLOR/ ALL
try printing.

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.

Using XP, my HP Deskjet 5550 printer allowed me to set margins of 0.5 inches and the document printed correctly. With my new Vista 64-bit OS, I get a message that the margins are outside the printable area...


Try when the message comes up click on print anyway. I have to do this with my printer sometimes and when I click print anyway and do not try to correct it prints fine.
