Question about HP DeskJet 3550 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer only printing headings and only in one colour.

As above.
My hp deskjet 3550 was fine about last time I used it, but when I swtiched it on the other day the only things it printed were headings.
Plus it's only printing in aqua, even though the black cartridge isn't empty.

    I have an HP deskjet 3550 printer. It has been working fine, then last week started acting up. Here's what's happening...

    When I print a full page of text with several paragraphs the first line of every paragraph is missing. I thought it was the black cartridge being close to empty, so I change it and put in a new one. But even with the new cartridge the printer is still leaving out the first line of every paragraph.

    Any clues?

Take a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and rub the back of the cartridge and the back of where your cartridge goes in the printer then take a paper towel and get it wet and push the heads(bottom part) on the wet spot and you should see a thick black line  if not the cartridge is defective

My HP 3550 deskjet will simply not print. It goes through the motions and seems to be printing --but the page is blank or very faint. I have already cleaned and re-calibrated the printer


Check ink-levels -- no ink means no printing.
Run a few more "print-head-cleaning" cycles -- clogged ink-jets cannot spray ink onto the paper.
