Question about HP OfficeJet Pro k550 Printer

My HPOfficejet Pro K550 will not print checks correctly

My K550 printer will not print checks correctly. It pulls multiple checks through at a time. I can print regular paper in multiple page documents though and it prints perfectly. Is this a setting issue for checks or is there another problem with this printer?

Hi crys smith -

for future refs: if the paper type and size (in this case checks) is set up correctly in the software that you are using to create the checks, perhaps it would help to check the printer settings. this link at hp support might help you then:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&docname=c00494598&dlc=en&product=501369

it includes checking and changing print settings and stopping a print job. (-and no one wants to waste checks!) -JW50

My HP Officejet Pro K550 is not printing the cyan (blue) ink. It has a new cartridge. I've run print quality pages and configuration pages -- no cyan shows up. I cleaned the printheads and no c


Do a test print...
assuming you have done multiple print head cleans... if it fails to print ANY cyan, I'd guess the print head is dead... although to be honest im not an expert with this hp printer. if that is the case, it probably isnt worth repairing.
If it does print some cyan, just missing, you may be able to find info, sorry, I cant help you there, on accessing the service or maintenance mode and doing a higher level clean, if your printer supports that.
As a last option, disassembly and soaking the bottom of the print head in cleaning solution /water... overnight, without getting ANY water on any contacts, then re running print cleans.

good luck

in my exp, again, not with this printer, mind you, if a print head fails to print ANY ink for a given colour, the print head is usually faulty.

Hope this info helps

I am having the same problem. I have tried reinstalling, looking for paper jams, blowing it out with canned air, and removed it from a print server network box. I downloaded the Hardware detection utility which told me it was in an error state, but does not give the discription of the state, just instructions on how to reboot the printer, which I have also done many times. Is it a dead duck and time to move on?
Thanks for your help.

My HP K550 officejet printer has recently been having some unusual jams in that it feeds a sheet of paper halfway through the printer w/o printing, then the green and yellow lights flash like a paper jam...


it seems that you are correct

Push the button on either side of the rear access panel or the duplex unit and remove the panel or unit.

Check inside the printer to make sure that the cam drawer is in the correct position, toward the front. If the cam drawer is not forward, pull the cam drawer into the correct position.

With all of the paper trays removed, check to ensure that the pick-up roller is up, not protruding down towards the tray, and no media is stuck to the roller.

Remove the printheads and check underneath the carriage and under the printheads themselves. Remove any jammed media.

Paper feed


Have you tried a different brand of paper?. When choosing the paper try and select one which the sheets can slide easily over each other. I had loads of problems with multiple feeds and paper jams with a cheap paper. I then changed to a heavier 90gsm all in one paper from staples and have had no more problems since.(and i just chuck the paper in straight from the packet with no fanning etc)
