Question about HP LaserJet 5550 Printer

Trouble with duplex printing

I'm having trouble whenever I need to print a duplex inDesign document. The computer sends it to the printer with no problem at all, the printer then shows "PROCESSING JOB" and prints just part of the document. If it's a two-page document, it prints the first page but not the second and it acts as if the job was fully done. If I then check the print history on the computer, it says Status Completed.  If I try to print only the second page, the computer sends it to the printer, it says "PROCESSING JOB" and nothing happens. If I remove all the images from the indesign page and start loading them back one by one and printing a copy every time an image is loaded, then it prints (but I have to repeat the procedure every time I print that page). I don't know what else to do! The printer has 512MB memory and there is nothing wrong with inDesign because this problem happens with any file and it wasn't doing it before. Could you please help? 
Many thanks, Roberta Walker

I think your problem is that the 5550 supports manual duplex printing. Print every other page then feed them through again. Never tried it though. Dave Reed

Black ink prints perfect on the test document, but on any other document prints very light purple. Heads are clean?


Please try to print your document with the option 'grayscale' and see if the black is better. If it is ok with this setting, the light purple colour is caused by a software translation of colour. You need to change the colour settings in you printerdriver, or when you send a document to your printer, change the settings of your software application. (Word/Indesign/Photoshop or whatever you are using)

Refilled ink cartridge now having trouble printing


Most of these new cartridges have what is called a "smart chip" which sends a signal when its low, and most times re-filling them won't reset it. there are resetting software tools available depending upon the cartridge number. Good Luck

I can't print to my printer from MS Office 2007 . I have done all the trouble shooting and my computer detects the printer, prints a test page, etc. When I send a Word document, it shows it being sent to...


Hi, please make sure the brother printer is selected before pressing print.

Now goto Wordpad , can you print from there ? if yes then there might be a problem with the office install but most likely the wrong printer selected , if there was a issue with the driver or printer the test print would not work, make sure that you don't have dupilcate printers.

I am having trouble with booklet style printing -- under Vista


After a great deal of frustration and trying every permutation possible I succeeded amid an ever rising mountain of paper! . . .and find that I have to totally ignore the "Booklet printing" option . . . but ask it to print landscape; 1 page per sheet; flip on short edge.
Now I need to do the same to crack the sytem for the Cannon Pixma IP4000 inkjet.
Thank you for your consideration.

Problems with Kyocera Mita FS-1920


Make sure that your paper sizes match in the control panel of the printer in Windows. It will not only cause the duplex not to work but could cause jamming problems as well. When printing in duplex mode, make sure it is turned on.
