MODEM DELL 5550 2XGNJ F5521GW with W520?

Question: MODEM DELL 5550 2XGNJ F5521GW with W520?

Hello! I would like to know if modem DELL 5550 2XGNJ will work with my Lenovo Think Pad w520. I know that I have free PCIe slot also an antenna but I mean from the software site. There are some modems based on Ericsson F5521GW but branded by Lenovo which will definitely work but what about DELL model? What is more I found drivers for F5521GW but I think it is for Lenovo ThinkPad Mobile Broadband Global Ericsson F5521gw 0A36186 which is 2 times more expensive then DELL model... Please write answers if you are sure, because I know that 'it might work', or you must check GreetingsDamian Turczy?ski

Hello All: I can't get the GPS location feature working on my new W520 (4270-CTO).  The device did work once, the first day I had the computer (before running Microsoft Update and Lenovo Update), however, it has not worked since then. I've tried everything I can think of - removing and re-installing all the software, double-checking the BIOS, looking for device driver problems - but no luck.  When I launch the 'GPS Enabler' application, all I see is 'Satellite Acquisition in progress...".  I know the laptop can see the satellite constellation because I have a small hand-held GPS beside the laptop, and it has an excellent view of the satellites.  So does my Blackberry. My operating system is Windows 7 Pro, 64 bit, SP 1 (what the computer shipped with).  I've installed the 83wo13ww driver package (nominally version 6.4.1.6, according to the readme file, but displayed as driver version 1.4.0.5 in the properties sheet of the driver when viewed via the Device Manager); the 83wa20ww Lenovo Mobile Broadband Activation package ( version 4.0.0020); and the 83gp31ww ThinkVantage GPS package (version 2.72). I'm running Access Connections 5.84 (build 83c755ww), which I believe is the current release.  I have placed a SIM card in the slot in the back of the computer, and when I launch the Lenovo Mobile Broadband Activation, it shows all the appropriate information (IMEI, ICCID, etc.) for the SIM card...

Answer:Can't get GPS working on W520 with Ericsson F5521gw Integrated Mobile Broadband

Just a postscript - I have found another discussion from about 18 months ago that mentions similar problems with a W500 and a T500.  One of the participants in that discussion suggested that improper assignment of COM ports might be the cause of the problem... but, if that is so, how does one go about re-assigning the two ports used by the GPS?  The picture I provided (link is above) shows that my W520 is using COM ports 10 and 11 for the GPS.  I have no idea at all how to change this port assignment. Here's the link to the prior discussion: W500 GPS Problem Regards, Michael

I have a Dell 5558 I7 and system is approved for win 10 according to Dell . A few questions: 1)Will the HDD recovery partition and other restore features on the HDD be upgraded to be compatible to Win 10? 2) How would I completely restore the image to Win 10 in the future if there is a problem? I have a both a factory 8.1 OS recovery media and system disks I burned. I would assume I would have to create recovery system disks for win 10 and the factory disks would be obsolete. 3) Are the program compatibility modes the same in win 8.1 and 10 the same. I am running some legacy programs.

Question: W520 modem?!

I received my W520 last week and I noticed a "blank" in the RJ11 (modem) slot to my dismay. The emailed order details also didn't show the "NO MODEM" option. It was only when I looked on the box Lenovo shipped that I learned the system had been configured, against my wishes, with the "NO MODEM" option. I was under the impression all W520s came with a modem based on the lists in "tabook." Several people on another forum and high profile reviewers like Keith Combs and have shown that the W520 does ship with a modem. I've contacted my sales rep about the issue and am awaiting a reply because I absolutely need the built-in modem. I've found the FRU number for the modem daughter card in the W520 hardware repair manual: 60Y3207. How does the sales rep add this item to a new W520 order to make sure I get the modem? I'd appreciate any advice so I can get the machine that I wanted.

I've just received a new W520 and it came without a modem. However, the pdf specification on the Lenovo site clearly stated 56K V.92 modem - see: http://www.lenovo.com/shop/americas/content/pdf/system_data/w520_tech_specs.pdf What is the trick here? can I get, at least, an external one from Lenovo?

Hi,From doing a little forum research, I see that many people do not have the telephone modem installed since there is a "blank" where the modem jack is supposed to be. One person who received their W520(4270CTO) around April did get a modem however. I ordered mine mid-May of this year, and I did not get one. I also found out the representatives that the forum members spoke to said the W520 doesn't come with the modem anymore. So it comes very strange to me that even though the "gallery of pictures" for the W520 on the Lenovo website clearly details there is a modem jack (and thus a modem) and the fact that a member did have a modem installed, there isn't a modem on mine and for some others! Can anyone give me a good response to why this is so? Thanks.  

Answer:W520 - 4270CTO No Modem?

This issue was raised on other forums as well, it seems that if you didn't explicitly have a configuration option enabled for the modem, the machine is shipped without one as a default. I have a W520 from the University Program and they all come with a modem installed....

I have a W520 Thinkpad with a Mini Dock Plus Series 3 with USB 3.0. Until this morning, I was able to use it with my two external monitors connected via DVI to the Mini Dock. The two monitors I have are: Acer V243HDell U2412M The Acer works fine regardless of which DVI port I plug it into. The Dell refuses to work on either port. Again, both monitors were working fine as of yesterday. Any ideas on what might have caused this or what I can do to fix it?

I connected the Dell to the analog VGA port on the Mini Dock and it works fine on that connector.

I recently bough a T420s laptop with a Ericsson F5521gw WWAN card. The GPS function seems to be working, but it is a little bit slow in finding satellites. ThinkVantage GPS program doesn't let me choose any other GPS mode than "standalone". I have checked from F5521gw's data sheet that it supports Assisted GPS (A-GPS) function. Does Lenovo support this function or is there some other possibilites to enable A-GPS?

Answer:A-GPS with Ericsson F5521gw

As far as I know, you need special software to support A-GPS.  The Lenovo software supports stand-alone mode only.  I suppose you can buy other software that uses A-GPS, but I don't know for sure.

Hi Lenovo, I tried to browse through the entries of the forum first, but it seems that you have yet failed to respond to the fact, that the build in WWAN card in some of your latest Thinkpad models, the Ericsson F5521gw only negotiates speeds of 7.2mbit despite the facts that the Ericsson card supports 21mbit and that my provider in Denmark (TDC) does support 21mbit HSDPA downloads. My thinkpad is a T420s 4174-P4G. But I am quite sure that it's not related to the specidic model. I can see that X220 users have reported this as well in Sweden on a Telia network that also supports 21mbit. Now if I take out my TDC sim card and put it into a USB-Modem such as the Huawei E372, I instantly get a 21mbit connection to the TDC network. But it's not elegant to use an external USB modem, when you purchased the top-model with a build in WWAN card that states that 21mbit is supported. I find it great pitty, that I have hardware in my super cool Thinkpad T420s that supports 21mbit, but that your driver appearantly blocks the speed to only 7.2mbit. Anybody from Lenovo who care to comment on this ? Thx Other than this I am very happy with my T420. The noisy fan issue is the biggest problem with thos model, but we are dealing with this issue in another thread.

Answer:Ericsson F5521gw 7.2mbit only

I have been using an F5521gw, in both an T420 and an X220, with two 3G ISPs (one on the 850MHz band and the other on the 900MHz band) in Australlia that support HDPA+ operation and I can achieve raw link speed connections at 21 Mbps with both of them, so whatever your issue is, its not solely with the F5521gw driver.

I have a HP deskjet 5550 printer connected to a XP pro (32 bit), it is shared. I have no problem using this shared printer either from the local XP machine or another XP machine. I had no problem using the share when I have Vista Ultimate 32 bit installed. However the Vista Ultimate 64 bit gives an error stating the server does not have the correct drivers, and requests that I supply and inf file.

Searching the HP web site they state the vista already has the drivers. I connect direct using a USB cable and can print without issue. Even after that no luck connecting via a share.

How can i solve this problem ?

Answer:hp 5550

Just so that I can get a complete picture... are all PC's laptops or desktops?

Vista should have the driver that is correct.

I'm assuming that the Vista machine can see the other PC's in the network. Is the network working?

I'll also assume the Printer is connected to the main desktop machine?

As you can see you haven't really given us much information to go by.

Hello, a first time Thinkpad user here. I'm having a problem with my new laptop, X220 (model 4290W1B). The specifications are these: i5-2520M, 4GB, X25-M (upgraded), 12.5" HD Premium LED 1366x768, Intel HD 3000, a/g/n WLAN, BT, Sec. Chip, FP, HD-Cam. I also purchased the Ericsson F5211gw module for wireless WWAN / 3g connections. The wireless network part of it is working fine, but the GPS doesn't work.The module was installed by the reseller, so I assume the antennas etc. are installed correctly. I have installed drivers for the card from Lenovo support (and system update) and installed Thinkvantage GPS utility. In device manager I have device "F5521gw Mobile Broadband GPS Port (COM5)" with an exclamation point. Device status box has this information: "This device cannot start. (Code 10)". When I try to start the GPS utility it doens't start and gives this error:"The GPS NMEA COM port is not available. You need to check the following things.- Another GPS application is using the COM port.- Com port is disabled. You can enable the COM port in Device Manager" I have no other GPS applications or haven't disabled the COM port. I think there isn't any options about the GPS in BIOS (I have disabled stuff I don't need) I have tried uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling them. I also have reinstalled Windows 7 (unrelated reason) but the problem has persisted. Any assistance would be welcomed.

Does anyone know if the Ericsson F5521gw would be compatible with an X260 running Windows 10? I've got an X220 which I have been looking to replace (primarily for a higher resolution display). Neither the X260 or X1C are exactly what I want (I like the flexibility having a spare battery but would prefer NMVe if I was spending a lot of money). Therefore I am wondering, as a half-way approach, I could buy the cheapest i7 X260 and swap over my MBB adapter (I only have a 3G data contract) and 1TB Crucial M500 drive. I know I had trouble with the F5521gw on Windows 7 (there were some workarounds) but since Win 8.1 and now Win 10 I've had no problems. TIA!Simon

My assume is the card f5521gw isn't whitelisted in the newest BIOS dispite this card (even with the different p/n or FRU) is listed in the current (!) fru_bom file for the x230. Possibly it was supported in the initial BIOS versios. Currently the half sized card Ericsson h5321gw is listed in the fru_bom file.

Hi,Yesterday I've installed F5521GW modem into my x220t and after downloading some drivers found on forum it worked fine. Then I decided to do autoupdate, it found some drivers related to WWAN adapter (GPS, "Lenovo Mobile access" and I guess few more) and now I'm stuck to like few minutes (around three?) of internet and after that wireless WAN radio turns off, just like an unused WiFi card. It happens every time, when connection is made and is obviously in use too.  I've turned off "Turn mobile radio off when disconnected" in Access connection, moreover when WAN card turns off while using Access connection it hangs. I'm connecting using Windows Network and sharing center, "Mobile broadband" application leads me only to some kind of activation (but I have a working, activated service...) and nothing more, and "Lenovo mobile Access" gives me some registration page, I guess for some kind of Lenovo branded internet provider, plus some tray icon saying that no mobile broadband is detected How to get rid of this automatic WAN card shutdown?

I have a 5550 printer, connectd to XP pro OS via USB.I was cleaning the cartridges and made a test page, which wasn't satisfactory. I then tried the next intermediate clean button, again this was not satisfactory. Black is OK but colours have lines. I then tried the third button, to clean.The printer heads slammed hard over to the left and out of sight, rocking the machine in the process. Both lights are flashing and the cartridges appear to be very firmly jammed.I cannot get them to move using the software.Can anyone help please

Answer:Hp 5550 Printer

Hi .

If you have a home network setup...regardless of location of the printer, any system can print on it. All you have to do is make the printer a shared device on the network.

Start/Control Panel/Printers & Faxes...right-click on printer, select Properties...click on Sharing tab, put mark in Share This Printer, click Apply, click OK.

I just realized...there's a little more to be done, my apologies .

Now that we have the printer set up for sharing...we have to set it up as a shared device on the other computers. This is pretty easy.

Click My Network Places. Click Printers & Faxes, click Add A Printer...Next...select A Network Printer or Printer Attached. Next, Browse For A Printer, Next. Double-click on your home workgroup, select the printer with mouse, click Next. Click Finish.

Question: ipaq 5550

Hello,

I am trying to get my hp ipaq (mobile win 2003)connected to my notebook that is using a 3com bluetooth card with winxp,
I have paired the ipaq with a number of bt devices eg, mobile phone/printer and even the notebook, but if I try to establish a connection between the ipaq and the notebook I get the message saying "there is no bluetooth hardware installed on the device"
Although I can get a connection to my mobile(ericsson t610) and browse files on the mobile, i can also dial via the bt to the mobile phone using gprs but unfortunately cannot access any web pages on the ipaq.
Also when I pair the ipaq with the hp bt printer for some reason it does find the printer via bt, but makes a connection via a serial port, no idea why,

Any ideas anyone,

Thanks in advance,

Question: Deskjet 5550

After installing a new black printer cartridge the paper jammed whilst the printer was finishing the test print. After clearing the paper the printer has now stopped working all together - just the paper feed light and the power light flash simultaneously when the printer is switched on.
Can anyone please help.
 

Answer:Deskjet 5550

Make sure you got the whole sheet of paper out of the printer (even if it was in pieces). Sometimes even a small confetti-sized piece of paper can cause an error.

HI all,I just bought an X220 with the following specifications:   Lenovo ThinkPad X220 4291 - Core i7 2620M / 2.7 GHz - RAM 4 GB - HDD 320 GB - - HD Graphics 3000 - 3G Mobile Broadband- no service included- Gigabit Ethernet - WLAN : 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 - TPM - 12.5" LED TFT 1366 x 768 ( WXGA ) I made a clean installation, since I switched to an SSD drive, and installed all drivers as suggested by the lenovo update tool.I also installed the wireless WAN drivers available in the lenovo support page: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-77280.html My problem is that I'm unable to stablish a WAN connection with the broadband modem. In window's device manager a device named "Ericsson F5521gw" appears as working properly, and a WAN adapter is listed as a network adapter and in the lenovo communication tool. The problem is that if I click "connect" it only lists available wifi networks, and I don't see an option or program to stablish such WAN connection. I am missing something? I notice that the PCI Express Mini Card slot is empty, so I am wondering if the modem is not really included, even if it appears as so in the specifications and it also appears as a working device.  David

Answer:X220 problem with wireless WAN-Ericsson F5521gw

 
Hi dvallet and welcome to the forum,
 
Did you turn on the radio for the adapter? Press Fn-F5 (require hotkey feature set) and turn on Wireless WAN radio.
Are you using Lenovo Access Connections? Did the WWAN work before the clean install?
 
If you never used it before you could download and install the Lenovo broadband connect app and try to activate.
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-70946
 
If you find F5521gw in device manager PCI-E adapter is installed in your computer.

Having E320 (1298-3RG) with currently available driver version 6.4.1.6 from 08 Jul 2011 from Lenovo support site there seems to be incomplete mobile operator data for Finland. Specifically, my operator Saunalahti utilizes Elisa network and is actually the part of Elisa company. The problem is the current driver from Lenovo doesn't recognize SIM card automatically and manual setup offers just single possible item in the list for Finland - Elisa. Saunalahti has its own MNC (21, Elisa has MNC 05), and such manually edited connection (replacing with the right AP settings) is detected as roaming, which works but has two major issues: Every time a user has to accept roaming warning dialog before connection is actually made (Saunalahti always been on Elisa network thus the setup is NOT actually roaming)Automatical WLAN-WWAN connection switching doesn't work, probably due to roaming issue with (it just silently fails without roaming dialog).Tried with two Saunalahti SIM cards with the same result, both having unlimited data plan and working fine. BTW Toshiba has newer v.6.5.x.x drivers according to http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/wlan/.Could someone provide the hints how to fix these issues, maybe editing the driver configuration file(s) or has a link to the latest F5521gw driver that will work in pair with Lenovo Access Connections, thanks!

I have a X220 Tablet with the Ericsson F5521gw WWAN? option. It seems to connect just fine, however after 30 mins - 3 hrs, it always disconnects from the mobile network. A red cross appears in Access Connections, and the Windows 7 network icon shows that it is "connected" but there is "no internet access". It is impossible to reconnect using either Access Connections or the Windows tool. If I try, it gives me an error about not being able to find the network. If I try Fn + F5, I sometimes can turn the WWAN off but not back on, and sometimes I cannot even turn it off. None of this helps me reconnect. The only way to be able to reconnect is to shutdown + turn back on / restart / sleep + wake. One interesting thing I've noticed is that the mobile network makes a difference. Using the "3" network (which I'm on a contract for), it disconnects after 30mins - 3 hrs. However, if I swap the SIM card to a Telstra network prepay card, it can hold the connection much more reliably. I've only noticed that it dropped the connection once after about 3 hrs. On subsequent testing, leaving the computer on overnight etc, it seems to stay connected to Telstra. I've tried the following trouble shooting steps without any success:- I verified the correct orientation of the SIM card on these forums- I've uninstalled access connections / used earlier versions of the Ericsson driver- I've reimaged the computer using the Lenovo factory install DVDs- I've asked "3" for a new SIM card to...

Hello, I have an E220s, and have recently bought an Ericsson WWAN F5521gw module (FRU: 60Y3279).According to the manual (and judging by how the card looks), it connects to an antenna through two cables: main + auxiliary (just like the WIFI module). My laptop didn't have any such cables, beside of those already used by the WIFI module (I've opened and removed the top panel to make sure. Really no antenna cables).Just to experiment, I've disconnected the aux cable from the WIFI module and connected it to the main connection of the WWAN module (so now I have two modules, each connected only at the main connection). It worked - both connections operate properly (with a SIM card for the WWAN, of course). Is this supposed to be a satisfactory solution, or should I worry about them not being connected through the AUX as well?If they indeed need the AUX connections too, where are the WWAN antenna connectors supposed to be? Thanks in advance,Daniel

My wife wanted an all-in-one printer/scanner so I bought her an HP Photosmart C5550 to replace her HP Deskjet 6540 ( which will probably become my new printer). When I went to install the new unit (after removing the previous printer & associated software), when I get to the place in the install instructions where it says to connect the usb cable, as soon as I do, my computer reboots. I called tech support and the nice man in India after 2 hours of removing the 5550 software and drivers that I had installed, got to the same point of connecting the usb cable. He said to connect it and when I did, sure enough, the computer rebooted. The pc is a Compaq Presario so the tech support guy said no problem, the printer and pc are both HP products, the problem lays with the pc not the printer and passed me on to pc support who dropped my phone call after 15 minutes on hold.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what I might do to get this all-in-one unit working? I haven't tried reinstalling the previous printer yet, tho that would probably be the simplest test to make. To the best of my knowledge, the printer (6540 and scanner) were working ok when I took them off of my wife's pc. So, any ideas?

Does anyone have an HP deskjet 5550 printer?

I was given this printer bare with no install instructions, no cd,etc.
I already had a spare usb cable and i got the install instructions and drivers from HP. I installed this printer into a spare test unit that i keep just for testing. Its P3 733 and has win xp pro. At least i tried to install it, no way, kept asking for files that werent there. I contacted HP who told me to install HP 550C drivers instead.
I did that, and with some other adjustments, like having to uninstall usb drivers and rebooting so system could re-install them,and a few other adjustments, its working. The tech guy told me "The issue seems to be with the some of the missing files from the Deskjet 5550 drivers which are required by the Operating System"
My cousin, who gave me the printer, installed it fine in his P4 system and he has win xp pro w sp2 installed.
I dont have sp1 or sp2 installed in my test unit.
I dont want to install the HP 5550 in my main unit as i have a Lexmark 4350 all in one unit that i like, although i do have sp 1 installed there.

Would the absence of sp1 and\or sp2 make a difference in wether one could install the 5550 drivers instead of having to revert to the 550 drivers?

Answer:Windows 7 with a HP 5550 printer

Seems like Windows 7 is loading his own printer drivers, that are very generic, useful for emergencies and little more. It's remarkable that they work at all on so much different devices.
Did you install the right drivers?

From HP's site they say there are 5 different kinds of HP5550. please locate the manual or something to identify your printer, then try going here, select the printer you have and then on "microsoft windows 7 64 bit", then download and install the latest Universal Printer Driver.

Another thing that may help is the latest HP Print View software, from that same page, which seems to be a more advanced print utility. (HP Print View Software is a suite of tools that can help you produce professional-quality marketing material by using your own HP Printers.)

Try both and see if you regain control of the printer, then report back.

Hi, I have a problem with my F5521GW Broadband modem on a Lenovo X220T after completing all the current update. It was working perfectly until yesterday when I used the Lenovo Software Update utility to run all the updates (there was about 22 in total) and after I rebooted, the Broadband module doesn't want to connect to the Service providers anymore. It is still properly listed without errors in the Windows Hardware devices (Modem Driver: Ericson AB, 2011/04/13 Version 5.28.4.0) (Network Driver: Ericcson, 2011/08/12, 1.5.2.0).When I use the Access Connections Utility (Version:5.93 Build G1C51WW) and set it to Mobile Broadband on the "Connect to the Internet" tab, it does detect the Service provider I use. It shows the tower Icon with Vodacom-SA. In the past I could click on that icon and then click connect and I was online. I also had a Location profile setup for Vodacom and that also worked.  Now when I try and use any of these connection methods it doesn't connect (Error message: Connection Failed). I click on the Help Me Fix This button and on the Diagnostic window I get error code 043.  I then click the repair button where it is supposed to find the service provider again, but then it doesn't find any providers anymore.When I close the Diagnostic screen and go back to the "Connect to the Internet" tab, the Vodacom-Sa Icon is still there. I tried to click on the "Find Now" button and it gives no errors and still reports Vodacom-sa I re-d... Read more

Answer:Lenovo X220T with F5521GW can't connect to the internet after upgrades

Ok, This is strange,I have rebooted a couple of times, And had no luck.I tried a Vodacom USB Dongle Last night and after that it still didn't work, But I did see a post somewhere that someone mentioned that the Vodacom software might cause issues, so uninstalled it. Deleted the Vodacom Device in the Device manager. Just remember to enable "Show hidden devices" if you don't find it.There after, no luck.So i tried to reboot again and just check the BIOS out , for new settings or anything that might have changed, There was nothing new. (BTW this was the first time that I went into the BIOS, since it was updated). I Just saved and exited.Booted Windows again and tried the connect. Less than a minute and I was connected again.I will keep this open for now, and if it keeps working after another reboot, i will flag this as resolved.

Hi All, When I set my pc to sleep or hypernate(Or when i goes from sleep -> hybernate) mode this file l36wgps64.sys seems to generate a nice bluesceen.

Answer:Bluesceen on my T420s caused by Ericsson(F5521gw) l36wgps64.sys

hey ajensenthat Ericsson file is for the Mobile Broadbrand. If you could, uninstall the drivers for it and see if the error occurs when you place your unit to sleep/hibernate.later go to this page : http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS018764download the driver and reinstall it.

Oh no, didn't I write my WWAN-Card works cleanly after the lenovo support repaired it in my previous post?! After a long time (3-5 month) of not using it it has a strange behaviour now I cannot find out the reason for: After connecting to my broadband carrier of choice (Vodafone) the connection get disconnected after ~3 min. because the WWAN-Card (Ericsson F5521gw) becomes disabled state.But why? I could not find out a feature/setting to explain this behaviour. Sure, I installed several lenovo updates since the time the WWAN-Card worked properly and the state I got now. My dial up settings didn't change: General/Phone number:Phone number: *99# Options/Redial Options:Redial attempts: 3Time between redial attempts: 1 MinuteIdle time before hanging up: NeverIdle threshold: <disabled>Redial if line is dropped: true I don't think it's up to the dial up settings as the WWAN-Card becomes disabled after ~3min. of connection.Driver Version: 5.28.4.0 When I turn it on again by Fn-F5 it connects immediately but just till it becomes disabled again after those ~3 min. I searched the forum already but I could not find similar problems yet.UPDATE: I found a similar entry in the forum here:http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/X-Series-Tablet-ThinkPad-Laptops/Wireless-WAN-adapter-keeps-turnig-off-F... Any hints? Cheerskyoshiro

i had an existing hp deskjet 5550 that i used on my old win 2k system

when i installed it on my new computer it installed o.k. i wanted to print out some digital photos, and when i went into "print" then selected "options" to change from "fast draft" to the highest setting (cant rememebr the name) that tab was all in french. nothing else was in french but the "options tab"

weird.

i deleted the printer, reinstalled - ALL was in english for a few days. i had to reboot the system, when XP came up, it said it "detected new hardware" (my printer) - next thing i know - i am back to french.

i called HP printer support and they wanted $30 - forget that

i went thru all my windows settings and everything appears fine.

i get this in french with ALL programs that allow me to print.

any thoughts? i am at work now, and i just downloaded a driver update for win xp for the deskjet 5550 - maybe this will fix my problem???

After a long time of inactivity, and with the help of a member of the Tech Guy forums here, I was able to re-avtivate my HP Deskjet 5550 printer. But it seems, there is one more problem to be solved: the paper is not reached by the pulling wheels inside.

I suspect a missing part here. Please have a look to the two photos showing the empty paper tray (I removed, for better visibility, the outlet tray), and the same tray filled with some paper. The papers are on the ground, but the wheels above them which should pull them into the mechanics of the printer, are not touching them. Thus my suspicion of a missing part.

Is there anyone who can assist me? It is so frustrating to had to wait six years to use this printer again (HP does not offer support nor even any response to help requests to people from Jamaica), and now to face a second problem just after the first problem of a missing cable was solved.

Hi.

Hope this is kinda the right sub forum to post my request here.

I have a HP Deskjet 5550 printer, but its power cable was stolen. Now I need again a power cable, but can't find such anywhere around me. I should say, that I live in Jamaica. So the amount of such shops is limited. I of course contacted HP and many online shops without success.

There are two versions of that cable: one with a triple plastic plug towards the printer in green or gray or some other color maybe, and one with a single metallic cylindrical plug - that one I need.

I want to ask here, if there's anyone here who could sell me that type of cable? If so, please PM me, and also show me a photo of that cable and plug (to ensure for me it's the right one).

Thanks a lot.

Answer:HP 5550 Printer Install problem

Leave the usb cable hooked up and plug in the power for the printer. Then go to device manager and delete any printer that shows. Then reboot and watch for the new hardware wizard to start then when the driver installation starts select specific location and direct it to the drivers you have and click on the .inf file within.

I have an HP Deskjet 5550 printer which generally works well. However, every now and then it goes into a 'spin' if it receives a bad bit of data. Instead of printing the correct text / image, it prints a few lines of gobble-de-gook and then throws out the paper and picks up a new sheet. If, at the time of the error, it is in the middle of printing a long document, this activity can go on for 30 minutes or more - in the process wasting endless paper and ink.I have tried all the obvious ways to kill this process; check / empty the print queue, cancel the application that was feeding data to it, shut down the PC, switch off the printer etc - all to no avail! It's as if there is a non-volotile memory buffer somewhere (either in my PC or in the printer itself) that is determined not to be stopped from printing rubbish, since as soon as you power up again, it carries on with the same activity until it has emtied the offending buffer. It then works normally again!Any ideas as to how to fix this problem would be much appreciated.Tallboy

Been trying to print pictures. first one is good, then I start loosing my greens and the pink starts. This usually starts about half way thru the printing process, so the bottom half of my pictures are not the same color as top half. I have changed ink cart -- never mind. I think I just broke it, the plastic cover of the printer was up and the ink cartrige cover was up and it decided to move, running into itself and making a grinding noise. Now all I hear is a computer ding somewhere! Now it has decided to work again, but color is still bad. Anyway, I have changed cartridges, now have 3 color ones open, I dinked around with the type of paper I was using, matte, plain glossy etc. Is there a simple solution - other than the costly one of buying a new printer? Seems I remember something about cleaning the ink cartridge itself? Any help would be appreciated!
 

Answer:hpdeskjet 5550 color is going south!

Does that model come with software to do maintenance? Have you ran the head cleaning application? If not, remove the ink cartridges as you normally would, and apply alcohol to a Q tip and carefully clean the heads. Insert the cartridges back into the printer and try again. Another problem with HP printers is that everytime you remove the ink cartridges, you have to run the software to align the print heads. This is one of the first printers that I had to do this to after replacing the old ones. You should have a settings option in your software fro mHP. The cartridge alignment program is there.

Can anyone tell me if there is extra software / drivers to load when adding a duplex module to the back of a hpdeskjet 5550. I have just got a second hand duplexer C8955A and assumed you put it in the back and set up the printer properties to two sided and it did it all for you. I can't seem to find anything in the printer documentation as it only shows you how to turn the paper over and reinsert it to give two sides.

Answer:HP Deskjet 5550 printer problem

If it prints off a test then it is working OK, its just not talking with the PC.This could be connection cable, usb port, drivers, or print software. Check usb port and cable with another device if poss. See if there are any updated drivers for the printer. Re-install software.

Answer:hp deskjet 5550 printing problem?? help

as you have been filling you own cartridges for a few months it may be the case that it is time to replace the cartridge/s.There is a limit to how may times anyone should refill a cartridge.They may just be showing signs of nozzle wear or may be plugged with a little dry ink or debris in certain areas. It may work with a line test etc.but not on a larger print job when a certain colour is required. May be worth trying a few more cleaning cycles than normal.

Hello, I have a user with an X220, running Windows 7 SP1 (x64) with Access Connections 5.84, utilising the Ericsson F5521GW WWAN card. The user is experiencing random disconnects when using the 3G and as this is a remote user, he heavily relies on this service. We have had our supplier send the user a new SIM card, in case that was faulty but this has not resolved the issue. The obvious next step would be to replace the WWAN card but again, he is a remote user and would need to come in to head office or send it in, which will not be ideal. I was wondering if anyone has encountered this issue and if so, how it was resolved. Kind RegardsBarry J.

I have the latest version of the driver (1.5.2.0), firmware (R3B01) and Access Connections (5.85). The Wireless Connection Status windows reports 'WAN adapter is not ready'. No errors in Event log.

Yo, So I have an Alienware Area 51m 5550 and for a few months I was having display issues, mostly whilst gaming to start with, then the frequency increased. My screen would go black(no backlight to begin with, then after 10 or so seconds, with backlight) for about a minute in total then flicker and go back on and I always got this windows message saying that the display driver had stopped working but then fully recovered. As it recovered it was annoying but seemed to carry on working for a while afterwards. Then it began to happen so often I couldn't use my computer for games at all, and after a couple of days so often the laptop was completely unusable (without tearing my hair out/throwing it through the nearest window). So I took it to the computer guy at the health clinic I work at after I had tried using different versions of the drivers to no avail, he did the same as me to start with, nothing changed so he said he wanted to reinstall windows, he installed Vista Ultimate though(he got it at one of those launch party tings where they give it out or some ****) , I previously had Home Ultimate. And he noticed that when he put it in the server room (its really cool and airy etc) there were no issues but in a normal room it heated up well quick and the display driver continued to fritz out. 2 days later, everything was seemingly ok, hadnt seen the message after a new driver was installed, sweet....till I boot up and get a phat BSOD talking ******** about the video driver, thi...

Moved my HP Deskjet 5550 from win 98 to XP using a parallel to USB cable. Obtained latest drivers and installed. Test print and calibration both correct but won't print out anything but first centimeter on page before ejecting in any other application. Print preview (even the HP supplied one) shows one page correctly but print queue lists it as 3 pages!

Is this to do with XP the cable or what? Have uninstalled and reinstalled - same problem. Have checked page set up in application and printer and all appears correct.

Can't understand why test page correct but nothing else!

Any help welcome!
 

Answer:Solved: Deskjet 5550 won't print properly

Umm... okay, when you say 'parallel to USB', do you mean a USB/Parallel adaptor? If so, why not just use a USB cable, since the 5550 has an either/or system? (I have 2 of these machines, one of which is plugged into two computers - one through the parallel, one through the USB.)

Remember though, since the 5550 has both jacks available, you have to chose which setup to use when doing so. If you are using a parallel to parallel hookup, the printer has to be plugged into the parallel jack and powered on while the software is being installed. If you're trying to plug it in via a USB to USB connection, you must install the software BEFORE plugging the machine into the USB jack - the install will tell you when to plug it in. If you are using a USB/Parallel adaptor, ITS OWN software must be installed first. The adaptor then needs to be plugged into the computer, and THEN you plug the printer into the adaptor and power it up, followed by installing the software via the Parallel to Parallel method.

Now, the other thing to remember is to either use the 5550's install disk to remove the software, or simply delete the 5550's icon from the Printer's and Faxes listing on your Control Pannel. I do NOT reccommend using "Add or Remove Software" for printers, since this program can remove too much, such as registry information from Windows.

Good luck!

Windows 7 / HP Deskjet 5550:  Printer has been working fine, but for some unknown reason it has decided to change over to Excruciatingly Slow Printing Mode:  instead of hearing the carrier busily scurrying back and forth, it now trundles once
across, then takes a long rest, then heads back the other direction.  Now, I'm getting on up in those "senior years" and so my walk-abouts and hikes are becoming more and more like that too . . . but after running HP Print & Scan Doctor
and trying every reset procedure I know of, the 5550 is not up to speed here; replaced the USB cable, but that made no difference; have gone through the "HP Printers - Slow Printing (Windows)" page of instructions, but nothing there made any difference.

Any suggestions toward a solution?

Many thanks.  Appreciated.

Hello everyone,We using this printer as a network printer, installed on W2k and shared on the network, all client PC are using OS XPSP3. The problem we are facing is the following:Whenever a user prints for instance a document of 2 pages and on the number of copies e he puts 2 so that the printer can then print 2 pages of each page, totally 4 pages, instead the printer takes out 8 pages, and if on the number of pages its 4 it will print 16 pages instead of 8. I find this so strange, tried some troubleshooting, like defaulting the printer to manufacture settings, changing some settings on the printers software to no avail.Please help.

I have recently needed to re-install the software for my HP 5550 printer. It now works OK and the HP online verification s/w says it is working fine. However, whilst the main printer selection page is in English, the page where you can select quality, paper type etc. is in Spanish!Since I had a few problems re-installing the drivers, I would rather not have to delete them all again and start from scratch.Does anyone know how I might replace the one offending selection page with the English version?Thanks, Tallboy

I have a Linksys Router using Broadband connected to my Desktop PC. I can access the Internet from my desktop. I have Zone Alarm firewall. Now I have an IPAQ HP 5550 which can see my linksys wireless home PC's network and it shows connected and I get a green light flashing telling me that I have a wireless connection. However I cannot view any Web pages with Internet Explorer on my Pocket PC. It appears the firewall on my desktop is the cause. It maybe that I need to switch of the firewall for a short while so my router can see my Pocket PC and then allow it access. Can someone pls help me and tell me what I need to do.. Thanks in advance.
