The green light flashes as if it's printing but I only get one line of gibberish and then it just spits out three more pages and stops. Then the green light and an Orange light rest next to it flash together. Cables are all connected and the ink tanks are full. I've checked the drivers are the tests say they are OK ... HELP

Green and yellow is a service error, but it flashes a longer green, and then the green yellow flashes, and a longer green again. You need to count the number of yellow-greens in between the longer green flashes, to know the error code.

You need to count the number of flashes, usually long green then a certain number of flashes, sometimes alternating red and green flashes. I need to know the number of flashes to tell you what the error is.
If the machine is making "working noises" while it flashes, it is most likely calibrating. A good way to find out if the problem is due to connectivity issues with your computer is to turn the machine off, unplug for 1 minute, plug back in and turn on. Wait until the light is solid, indicating its ready to go, and then press and hold the green button until the lights flash. It should produce a demo print for you. If it doesnt, the problem may be with the printer, not the computer. Also, check in the "Printers and Faxes" settings in the control panel (if you are running windows) to see that the 2550 is set as the default printer.
