Ghosting is usually a sign that the fuser in the printer needs to be replaced. Remove the fuser and look at it. If the rollers are not smooth and free of built up toner or other gunk then replace it. Supplies for this printer have gotten much more affordable and if the printer works fine otherwise it is a good investment to replace the fuser.

HP 3550 printer: copies are coming out with faint images of previous printing jobs


Hello,

Ghosting is caused by a failing transfer belt assembly. The transfer belt is how the printer moves the image from the colored toner cartridges to the paper. The surface has a special organic that allows the toner to be picked up and is transferred to the paper but when it gets worn down some of the toner stays on the transfer belt which causes the ghosting of the previous image. The transfer belt assembly is user replaceable and looks just like a big toner cartridge. You can get them from Office Depot or Amazon.com as well as almost any place you can get the toner for the unit. Here is a link to Amazon.com

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

Yellow smear on left side margin from top to bottom of the page. After cleaning, the smear reduced to one third and confined to the lower left corner. How do I get rid of it entirely?


What did you clean? If it was the Image Transfer Belt (the big mylar belt in the front), do it again. Print and see if the yellow is smearing again. If it is replace the yellow cartridge.

My HP 3550 won't print black when it is out of a color.


restore the properties.... set as "print in grey scale" or "print color as b/w images"...
also if the print become less or more dark you can change the settings to print whit more intensity or less...
there is no necesary change all your documents as "watter ink" only change the print options to fade to black

My hp Color Laserjet 3550 Printer wont print black when it is out of color ink


The 3550 won't print in any color if any of the colors are out. You'll have to replace the color ink that's empty to get it to print.

In the future, if you're just printing black and white, you can select "Print in Grayscale" from the print properties to just use the black ink cartridge, which will help the color cartridges to last longer.

HP Colour Laserjet 3550 printing problems


I can tell you that it is NOT the Fuser unit. I would change the drum unit first. This would be the most likely cause.

HP Printer problem


Sounds as though one of the drum cleaning blades is failing.

When you see the double image shadow, is it any particular color? If so, that's the drum unit that is failing.
