Question about HP DeskJet 5550 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have not printed photographs from my Deskjet 5550 for quite some time and have forgotten how to configure the cartridges. The photo cartridge (no 58) seems to only fit in the right hand slot (the "black" slot) which vaguely accords with my memory but I cannot remember whether the three colour cartridge should remain in place or not. I can't find the answer in the manual so could you help me please. Jim

    Yes! It solved the problem. My only complaint is that that is not the manual I downloaded from the website. That version did not contain the information I required.

    Thanks Jim

HP Deskjet 5550 quit printing red color. Installed new color cartridge HP57. Quit printing red again after 5 pages. Is it a printer problem or cartridge problem?


Have you check your color cartridge if they are properly installed.

Make sure your are not using a refill cartridge.

Replace your tri-color cartridge with original an HP tri-color cartridge.

Can i print photos from my printer


The short answer is YES you should be able to...but think you need to use the HP 57 and the HP 58 cartridge for photo printing. Try this website for more info on photo printing. The HP 58 goes in the cradle in place of the HP 57 black cartridge.

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.

I have an hp deskjet 5550 printer which used to be connected to my previous computer. My current pc has Windows Vista and although the printer works it just prints in tiny faint text and won't use my new...


Sounds like the working cartridges are badly clogged. Is the new cartridge HP brand or an "internet special"? Try HP originals and see if the machine still works ( I imagine it will). If not, then yes the machine is probably and the end of its life.

Can I replace the 57 cartridge with the 58?


'58' should only be used with 'photo' paper, '57' is for everyday use.

5550 DeskJet 5550 curious error message


Do you happen to be getting this on a Mac? I'm wondering if this is the Mac's notification for your cartridge being too out of ink to print. I came across this error today and had to replace the cartridge to fix the problem (mind you with the exact same version, just new).
