Question about HP DeskJet 5550 InkJet Printer

HP 5550. Stuck in install loop

WinXP pro SP2. Trying to install HP 5550. USB connection. I have followed every last instruction during the setup. A balloon by the clock says "found new hardware, HP 5550". When I click the "x" to close balloon (won't go away by itself) the add new hardware wizard pops up and says the hardware won't install. The only option is to click "finish". When I do the cycle repeats itself until I unplug the usb cable. The printer is installed, works fine with applications and test pages, I just cannot get this vicious circle to stop

Had the same problem on my Dell Latitude running WinXP SP2, installing a HP6380.

I noticed the installer was trying to access the other network printers I had setup (the status of these printers turned into "unable to connect" in Control Panel.) These printers are on the company's network and were not accessible from the home network I was on at the moment of installation.

I then started a VPN connection to the company's network, so that the printers were all accessible. The "add device" part of the insallation then went through and the printer was setup successfully.

Not recognize usb printer hp laserjet 3050


Hi, I would suggest you update your printer drivers with fresh drivers, try this, follow instructions exactly as written:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop(watch for the light yellow bar at the top of window viewing pane, click on this and choose – download file - . Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done.

No HP devices detected. HP Solutions Center will close now.


Try a complete uninstall:

Unplug the USB cable from your PC.
[If it is a WinVista Operating System Then in Go to Start> Control Panel> Programs and features delete all the entries you see for HP.( If it promts a restart do not restart now)
Rest all steps wil be same as winXP]

If it is a WindowsXP Operating System then:

Go to Start> Control panel> Add or Remove programs. and delete all the entries you see for HP.( If it promts a restart do not restart now)
Then open my computer> C:drive> Program files> and delete the HP Folder only (not Hewlett Packard)
Then Open C:drive> Program files> Common Files and then delete HP and Hewlett Packard folder.
Then Go to C:Drive> Windows> Temp and empty the temp folder as much as you can.
Then go to Recycle bin and empty recycle bin.
Then Insert the All-In-One CD and cancel the installation process.
Open the content of the CD> and open Util folder> Then CCC> Then click on Uninstall_L4 and follow the on screen process.

After all restart the computer.

And if possible download the software from HP website:

For WinXp:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=mp-49256-2&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=228&product=3192753

Then click on download only and then follow the on screen instruction to install the All-In-One, ONLY PLUG THE USB CABLE WHEN PROMPTED DURING INSTALLATION.

Fo WinVista:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=mp-49256-2&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=2093&product=3192753

Then click on download only and then follow the on screen instruction to install the All-In-One, ONLY PLUG THE USB CABLE WHEN PROMPTED DURING INSTALLATION.

Let me know if any problem.

Good Luck

Getting error when trying to fax or scan


The L7580 is not meant to be set up as a scanning device on a network. This unit can only function properly as a USB connected device to have all the features work. Also, for the software to install with out problems, all other All in One software fro previous HP printers need to be removed. Once we did that and did clean install using USB only then did it work.
