  • make sure the printer is compatible with the operating system on you pc,
  • check that when the printer is on, a light is lite,if not check power point,power pack (if used)
  • check all leads are firmly connected.
  • check in the printer folder, to see if it is installed on the pc.
  • if not re install it.
  • if you have not used it for a long time, the ink can dry up in the cartridge, but may still go through the motions of printing.
  • however some printers stop working when out of ink.
good luck with that

HP Deskjet D2560


First step is to see will if it print a test page.
Go to Start, settings, printers. Right click on the printer, properties, print test page.If that doesn't work there should be a head cleaning option in properties that will make it clean the print heads.
Try the self-test? I'm not sure on the 5550 printer, but do this:With the printer ON,
1. Press and hold the power button
2. While holding the power button, press the resume button 4 times
3. Release the power button

Printer installation


The first thing I would try is to install the latest drivers for the printer. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=dj-7095-2&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=71896&os=228&lang=en If that doesn't work, let me know.

Need page count


To get the page count on a Deskjet 5550:

- Hold down the Power button.
- Press the Resume button 4 times (without letting go of Power).
- Let go of the Power button.

A self test page will print out containing the page count.

For page count or configuration page instructions for other printers, copiers, and fax machines, check out How to Print Configuration Pages.

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.

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.
