When removing a sheet of paper from a jambed printer, you need to be careful to slowly remove the paper without tearing the paper. This could lead to a tiny piece of paper being left behind and this will cause other paper jambs.
When this happens, the printer may need to be dismantled to remove the paper.
The other cause could be that there is uneven pressure across the rollers or dirty rollers which causes the paper to feed through unevenly and results in a paper jambs.
Check the printer for pieces of paper near the rollers and gears.
Clean the rollers, make sure there are no deposits on the rollers.

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

HP 5550 Print issue


When you removed the jammed paper , the jam paper sensor was not reset or positioned correctly. The reason the machine was sending two pieces of paper thru at once was probably due to the paper feed sensor. A lot of H'Ps do this. Try re-aligning the tray and if you pulled the paper out and heard a grinding noise, the whole feed unit is probably out of time.I would only re-install the software as a last resort, since your problem was caused by hardware, not software.
