HP deskjet 5550 - Recommended troubleshooting not working


That's an oldie but a goodie. I bought a 5550 in 2002 and it still works!

1. Try disconnecting it from the computer and bring to a clear area with good lighting (kitchen table or garage work bench). See if you can see anything impeding the movement of the cartridges (you are correct...they should come to the center)

2. Power it up againd with nothing connected to it...see if the cartridges move.

I'll check my 5550 tonight when I go home, because I thought the cartridges came out from the Right Side...not the left. I wonder if they are jammed on the wrong side.

I know it's not much help, but I will check some more. Good Luck!

With the cover off, there are little white gears down on the right bottom that activate a ink plug tray.
Lid-open sensor is a gray tab on the lid that interrupts a black optic sensor on the circuit board. If your printer gets wet and no power up, unplug printer and short the two capacitors on the smaller circuit board to clear internal printer fault memory. Insulate yourself, small voltage in there even unplugged.

HOW DO I OPEN THE CRADLE LATCH OF HP 5550?


You've been very careful not to do what you think would break the top cover.  But sometimes you have to take a risk and trust the instructions which tell you to "Open the top cover".  Yes, it's going to require a bit of a jerk to get it open.  If you go to the HP website there's a picture which shows that no release buttons or latches are involved.
