Question about HP DeskJet 5550 InkJet Printer
I cannot view the ink levels on my HP Deskjet 5550 I am using vista home edtion as my operating sysytem.
I just had this same problem on my Deskjet 5550 printer. The orange light (ink indicator) was staying on. I found out that all you need to do is just open the front cover to the printer. If your printer is running out of ink, the print cradle will move to either the far left or far right side. If it moves to the far left side, the BLACK cartridge is low or empty and should be replaced. If the print cradle stays on the far right side, the COLOR cartridge should be replaced. Normally, when you open the front cover, the print cradle should move to the center. Hope this helps!

Your printer lights tell you which cartridge is empty. Do you have a manual for your printer? There should be light diagram in it . If you do not have a manual, you can download it here
Just be sure that you get the right one for your printer. Good Luck and Op system.
