Will Not Connect

When I powered off this printer last night, everything was fine. This morning I get power off/communication error. I have deleted the printer & removed the driver. Now, the driver is saying the printer is not communicating. I have moved the the USB to various ports with no luck. I have powered down & rebooted. Right now, it's stuck on "connecting". Is there a way to replace the USB cable? I don't have anyway to see how the panel it goes into opens...

    I had to pry the panel off with a screwdriver & replace the USB cable - It still doesn't work quite right - I can't have anything running when I use it - and sometimes I still get a communications error - I'm thinking it's the actual board inside - if I can find it to replace it, I will....

    First, check if the printer works when connected to another computer.
    If it does, then your usb drivers in your PC are most likely causing the problem.
    You need to remove the drivers and then let windows reinstall them.

The printer only prints the centre 15 cm section of the page. It completely cuts off the top and bottom.

Try unplugging your communication cable and turn everything off. Turn everything back on and plug in the cable. If that doesn't work delete the printer from your printer list and re-install it. Usually in this type of scenario it's a communication issue.

The machine thinks the yellow ink chute isn't working. The inkloader may be jammed or defective.

If you can't un-jam it, you will need to replace the inkloader.

Last night everything worked fine and I printed many pages. I just now turned my HP 5510 all in on on and the (3) lighted buttons, Copy, Fax, Scan, started flashing. Error message # Oxa0000146 is...

Suspect the printer's program is scrambled (didn't "boot" right)

Could there have been any power fluxuations/lightning during the night? Even if it wasn't on, if it was plugged in the wall then there could have been damage. Are you using a universal power device or a current protector?

Unplug the unit from the wall, wait 20 to 30 seconds for the power capacitors to disipate their energy and then plug it back in. This will do a HARD reset.

No power

Sounds like you have a fuse out on the engine control board (PCB) or it needs to be replaced. If you have a meter, turn the printer off and Ohm the fuses with a meter. If they Ohm, the Engine Control board (PCB) needs to be replaced. If they don't, change the fuse.
