I had at home the HP Photosmart 7550 and after several years the print quality got pretty horrible (for photos). It's been a while since it's been used anyway so I bought a new photo printer. I donated the old one to the local Synagogue and it is not working. I have new ink in and when I go to print a test page from the printer itself and it says on the display "printing from reserve" and a blank page came out. The computer that it is on now is running Vista so I followed the instructions to install the driver for the Deskjet 5550. The driver is installed but when I click to print a test page nothing happens. If I unplug the USB cable I get the "ding" that it disconnected, but nothing is happening.

Any suggestions??

Sounds like the Deskjet 5550 driver isnt as compatible as HP says.

Stupid me...I didn't follow all of HP's directions.
