HP Photosmart 5520 e-All-in-One Printer
AU$ 129 Including GST
Not as pleased as I wished to be
10/13/2014, posted by Gracie
After having purchased an HP Printer, I am quite disappointed with the ink function. I purchased the correct ink cartridges, all normal size except for the black, which is the XL size and have installed them according to the directions in the manual. I am now unable to print a document as it fails to print at all and leaves creases in the paper. I am hoping you will be able to offer me some assistance as to where to go from here. There is a slow blue flashing light, which I cannot be rid of. I do not have wireless and was wondering if this could be the reason for the flashing blue light. Is it necessary to have wireless with this printer?
Poor paper feed

Chewed paper, Paper jam, Paper non feed, Two sheet feed. All led to a poor print. On the bonus side HP have happily replaced it 4 times.
Multiple scanned docs for E-mailing

This is a good product for printing and copying but for me a great disappointment when it comes to scanning several pages for a PDF file to attach to an e-mail; this was the main reason why I replaced another Printer which was perfect for this type of scanning/emailing function, on account of the high cost of the inkjet cartridges I have not found any help on how to deal with this problem within the HP overwhelming volume available in the user guide, doctor etc. The machine can handle a single page scan to attach to an e-mail perfectly! Am I missing this indispensable bit of help which would restore my faith in HP whose products I have been using for many years. I bought this machine on the 22/1/2013 (same price) and have been struggling to deal with this shortcoming by using another printer which I had wanted to retire but of necessity have had to maintain in use for the occasions that I have had to scan 2 to 5 pages + to attach to an e-mail Any help to overcome this problem (unless this is a design limitation) would be appreciated

For the price it is one of the best on the market. Easy to set up and use. Eprint has been a useful feature. The printer status gives you all the information you need. I have also found it prints a decent amount of pages per ink catridge.

I have great trouble engaging the paper tray - does not slide in easily as it should. Otherwise quite good.
