Question about HP DeskJet 5550 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Something has broken inside the panel in the back of the HP deskjet 5550 that reverses the direction of the paper. It will no longer latch into place with the knob on the back. I've fastened it with duct tape, but would like to find a replacement part. Any suggestions?

Unfortunately, HP does not sell parts to non-authorized repair centers... and a repair would just about equal the cost of replacing.

Your best bet is to find a donor machine that has a different problem, and save it for spare parts.

eBay and Craigslist are good sources.

Thanks!!

I have hp deskjet 5550 printer,when i was trying to print a document there is no print out, two lights are blinking


Hi, This could be Low-Ink or paper Jam. Try turning off The printer, Unplug from The Mains Electric, for 3-5 Minutes. Turn back On, if Lights Are Still There. Check The Ink-Levels. And Replace Cartridges, if necessary.

I have an HP deskjet 5550. I had a paper jam earlier but cleared it. After reseting, warning light still comes on. Printer makes clicking noise when I first turn it back on.


First off how long have you owned the printer? There are several possibilities at this point. Possible paper still jammed or damage done to a part while clearing the jam. Once I have more information I can assist you further.
Thank you,
Lee

If there is power to the machine then there is most likely something broken in your printer. If there is no power then the carriage is locked. Turn the machine on, when the carriage moves pull the power. The carriage will now be unlocked while the the power is off.

Will not print / cartridges will not move back and forth


I had this happen to me the other night and I had to restart the printer to get the print job out of the que. You could try that.

While it's restarting, unplug the power cord and the usb cable. That should reset it.

Can't re-lock printer back cover.


You can use less greasy oil or something like the vehicle engine oil.

Any kind of thin lubricant is always yield good results.

Do not use vegetable oil or cooking oil/sunflower oil etc.
