Question about HP DeskJet 5550 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have VISTA and an HP deskjet 5550. All was fine for more than a year. Now the printer won't print my Word or pdf docs. It puts out the correct number of pages, but they are absolutely blank. No error messages. I can print directly from the internet and from my email with no problems.

This is very strange. You may need to try a driver reinstall.

1. Start > Control Panel, look for Remove Programs or similar
2. Find all HP printer-related software and remove it
3. Restart computer
4. Turn on printer and download latest HP software here and install

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.

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.

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!

Duplex not recognised


You need to set the duplexer to installed. For Vista this would be done as follows: go to the Printers folder, Right Click on the 5550, Run as Administrator, Properties, (continue), Device Settings, Installable Options, Duplex unit (set to Installed), Apply, OK.

Once you have done this in Vista the duplexer will work but the back side may print upside down regardless of the settings. This can be corrected with a patch available here.
