You can try to:
- Turn the printer off then turn it back on - Unplug and replug both ends of the usb cable connecting your printer and computer - Turn off the firewall - Reinstall the printer driver and software - if it still wont work, try a different usb cable

If you mean toner, you can probably do it, but most new printers have a memory chip on the cartridge which keeps track of toner. Adding toner will not change the count and the printer will ignore the new toner

Hp 5500 printer


The HP Color LaserJet 5500 and the DesignJet 5500 are older printers with a parallel port on the basic model. A network card was added or available as an after-market add-on; this would connect to a router or network switch. Assuming you have the basic model and your laptop is new enough to only have USB ports, you need a USB to parallel port adapter. http://www.amazon.com/electronics/dp/B0007UVRVO is one model. (Note: the parallel port on the printer is a bi-directional port; you will need an adapter with bi-directional communication.)

I hope this helps.

(According to the HP site, the driver for the LaserJet 5500 should be available from the Windows 7 Windows Update feature. For Windows 8, you will need to download and install the Dot4 program before the printer will work. See http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=83880&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=83875&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=4132 for the file If you have a different OS, see the HP site for your printer driver information.)

Printing files smaller than actual?


Because the 5500 does not print to the edge of the paper it will auto shrink the image to fit the paper ( a 36 inch wide image will shrink to 35.45" when 36" paper is used). Your image will need to be at least 0.55" narrower than the width of your paper to avoid this. so: Crop the image if you can, or use wider stock.

Printer will not communicate with computers


Whenever I have seen this problem it has usually turned out to be one of the solder points on the USB connection in the printer. Of course it could be a logic board problem as well. Well done for testing your problem so thoroughly (eg trying different cables and machines) but I think it needs a repair agent now unless it is under warranty (or you can solder well). Mind you it's probably cheaper to purchase a new one then to pay to have it repaired.
