Re: HP 5550 Laserjet prints dark
The only time I saw a color laser Printing darker than normal the issue was tranfer belt. The condition you describe matches the problem I was involved in and the tranfer kit fixed the problem.
Hope this helps

Please check your paper tray adjustments and verify that the paper type for the tray is set to any type or plain (assuming you are printing on plain paper). In general, if the machine has reason to believe that there is a custom size or special type of media, it prints at half speed.
Not sure if you can either SAVE AS or EXPORT as a PDF in latest version
if not a converter is available (Download) install and then print from acrobat- should do it.
If not install HDD - As the quote goes memory and size matter
Go to Start > printers and faxes> right click on the laserjet4 icon>
properties > click on printing preferences on the first page > click advance on the next page > under Graphics, you will see print quality. Change it to either 600x600 or 1200x1200. The higher the number, the darker the print. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
Is there a setting for econoprint for this printer? Try that if you can. Also, is this an OEM (original) toner or a remanufactured/refilled cartridge? Usually cartdriges are good for 4000 or more copies at 5% coverage.
