Lots of people having issues finding Toolbox software on HP’s website. Well, I too really needed it. Fortunately I found a hold of one, so I stripped it down to just the Toolbox/Drivers and I’m putting it on here to help everyone out. Files were removed/no ISO upload because I don’t want to pay for extra space!

Download 2550 Series Toolbox 73.5 mb

Note: Due to missing files, follow through with the default options and click ignore for any files missing (it will complain about the missing manual and web registration). At the final summary screen, uncheck all boxes (just in case).

Update: FULL ISO Provided by Chris M – Download Here

I have a 2410, 2420, 2430 toolbox uploaded over here (8/22/2011)



  • “Lots of people having issues finding Toolbox software on HP’s website.” is missing @ hp.com
    Thx for putting it on!

  • Thanks SOOO much, i have looked everywhere for this utility. I think its awful that hp does not have this for dl

  • Mike, HP printers seem to last forever so it’s not just awful that HP won’t make the near essential toolbox for these printers available for download. It’s an absolute disgrace. All the other software is available. I found a CLJ 2550 drivers and toolbox CD for 2.99 GBP (plus 0.75 GBP postage in the UK) on UK ebay earlier this year. I found your website because I had temporarily mislaid the CD. I’m sure a lot of people will be grateful to you for making the toolbox available.

  • Thanks a lot for posting this toolbox. Unfortunately I’m having a tough time installing it. Is there a trick to installing on Windows 7? Every time I try to run the application, I get an error message that says “Please use the Add Printer Wizard to install the printer on this Operating System.” Thanks for any help you can give.

  • I cant see an easy way around this unfortunately. Tried a few ways but I cant put any more time towards this. Trying to get just the toolbox portion to install without hpsetup looks like it may be a too much of a challenge.

  • @John: I love how ebay has sellers with those CD’s. I bet the HP cds that sell the most are the ones with this toolbox on it haha

  • thanks a lot dear friend , i spent hours and days loocking for this toolbox, if you need any thing I can do you ‘ll be my guest ,thanks a lot,

  • Need nothing, though its nice to know my work is helping others. Cheers Chafik.

  • I to have been looking for this software, as you have already been told thanks for uploading this. I have had the printer a while now and gave up looking for this software and just hoped I didn’t need it but that time has come and I need to run the cleaning utility to stop the vertical lines on printouts.

    Thanks again.

  • HP 25520 Toolbox

    I have downloaded the file http://www.migee.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/LJ2550_toolbox.zip.

    How do I now install it please?



  • Hi Gert, open up the downloaded zip, drag the files into a folder on your desktop. Then run hpsetup, and follow the note in the article. Been awhile but I’m fairly certain its hpsetup (and not the msi installer file). Correct me if I’m wrong!

  • you are a lifesaver! just need to find an HP LJ 2820 toolbox now.

  • Much welcome!

    For the 2820 it should have an embedded webserver so you shouldn’t need a toolbox (assuming this one always comes with a networking port.

  • Thank you very much, Mike.

  • I notice from the setup.ini file that the latest supported OS is Win2k, is this right, will it not run on XP or Windows 7?

  • I do believe this is only compatible with XP and below, unfortunately. Though I could be mistaken.

  • Anyone please help me to find hp toolbox for colour laserjet 2500 series printer.
    I have no clue how to find it…
    Without it i cant even print cleaning page and ant calibrate the printer
    any help please

  • This toolbox is not detecting my printer
    it is same look printer (2500n)
    but 2550 toolbox is not supporting it
    it means i have to install some other tooolbox for my printer

  • Hi Mike, thanks a lot for providing the toolbox for HP CLJ 2550. Regarding to HP the toolbox cannot be run on Windows 7 but there seems to be a way to start the cleaning process without the toolbox: http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/printer/70077. Unfortunately two printfiles (cleaning_page.prn and clean_mode_page.prn) are needed for the job. I cannot find them within the downloaded archive (not even in cab- and zip-files inside the archive). Could you be so kind and upload those files (they must be on the CD, they are uncomressed), please. Many thanks in advance.

    Another solution could be to use the toolbox with XP Mode (I am going to try out tonight).

    kind regards

  • @ziaulrehman: I’m not sure if the two are similar enough, sorry.

    @gerul: Sorry I don’t think have the files anymore. XP mode is my suggestion 🙂

  • Unfortunately, I could not get the program to work. I have a CD with drivers for the program, but it does not contain a toolkit. HP probably deleted the toolkit.

  • @Brenda: Be sure you have the right model of printer. A 2500 may not be the same as this 2550 for example. Secondly, please provide any error messages or detail on why its not working. Lastly, this program only appears to work on XP or older!


  • I believe the toolbox software only runs on XP, unfortunately!

  • Muchas gracias por el aporte, la verdad es que no lo encontré en ningún otro sitio

  • Thank you so much, and i think your help is better than HP, due to i search many times but the problem solved your help only, thanks again and so much thanks
    With best wishes!

  • Toolbox supports LJ 1010, LJ 1150, 1300, LJ 2500, 3500, 3700, 2550

    run this in compatability mode for XP

    Furtherbelow. privilege Level

    I got it installed but
    how to run it .. I have no answer yet.

    I went to C:\Program Files (x86)\Hewlett-Packard\Toolbox
    & looked which one to click (LOL)
    i am hesistant, (noob on this)


    (thanks AndrewSh for sharing it) where to find install
    Million Thanks for the administrator for sharing this tool.

  • Here’s a link to the ISO for the entire CD.

    I had to wait over a month for HP to ship it.

  • To Administrator and Chris M — Thanks heaps for taking the time to make these files, and Chris M, the entire ISO, available! Very helpful!

  • Thanks Chris. I’ll update post with your link!

  • I can’t seem to download the ISO from ondrive. That link only takes me to a onedrive page but no files available for download there.

    Am I missing something?

  • please how can i install this toolbox on window 8

  • I am using windows 10. I have the original cd for my HP laserjet2550l, however it will not allow me to download the software. I have found a compatible driver and it works, but I can not set my printer to maintenance clean printer to clean up the streaks when printing pictures. Anything out there work?

  • Thank you so much. This was really helpfull. HP’s website is crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Thank you so much! After this last set of toners is empty, I will buy a non-hp-laser-printer. This HP-“support” of old products results in a mess for the pollution.

  • I am very gratefull for this. Very much thank you from bottom of my heart 🙂

  • Hi! Some one have the link to download the FULL ISO ??

  • the one drive link seems to be broken 🙁

  • Unfortunately the full iso link is broken. Can someone reupload it? Thanks!

  • I finally found a way to clean my printer.

    1. create the cleaning page:
    I did copy the file “cleaning_page.prn” on my printers network path.
    For details read here:


    copy cleaning_page.prn /B \\\HP2550L

    2. Because running the cleaning procedure via copy PRN didn’t work for me I found another way how do start it from
    Press “Go” Button until the three lights stay on, then relase: your cleaning page will be processed.

    Hope it helps!

  • Hello, unfortunately I can not use the file.
    Can that be the 64bit system?
    I use it for 32 bit system and the iso can not download any more.

  • Does anyone know if I can get the same toolbox for windows 10 ?
    Or is that out of the question….

  • The ISO provided by Chris M no longer exists. :/

  • Does anybody have toolbox for 2500 (not 2550)? So far no luck with Google… I can offer 1500L toolbox from my side.

  • Will this toolbox work on Windows 10? I have HP2550 that is rattling and banging after replacing a magenta cartridge. Not sure what the problem is – all paper jams are cleared.
    Don’t want to retire this as I have an investment of toner.

    Someone earlier asked how to run the toolbox, and there is info here. https://support.hp.com/lamerica_nsc_carib-en/product/hp-color-laserjet-2550-printer-series/388394/document/c00133526#AbT1

    but now I wonder if it’s not compatible with Windows 10?

  • Hello, does anybody know the link to full iso? The one listed here not more working.

    Thank you.

  • I have an original disk that I can make an ISO of, if anyone wants one you will have to have a cloud storage that I can upload to

  • Hi Tim
    Yes, please. My 2550n is still going strong but toolbox ‘lost’!
