Unable to reinstall my HP Laserjet 4050tn after upgrade to Leopar
I have not been able to reinstall my HP Laserjet 4050tn printer after I upgraded to Leopard on my Mac. The error message I get is "Unable to get printer status (Not Implemented)!". I have deleted and reinstalled the driver, turned everything on and off in sequence and randomly. What else do I need to do to reinstall this printer?

Every time I try to print I am finding it starts off fine and about half way through the page it stops with the error 79.4165. I remove the two pieces of paper and re start and it says ready again only to repeat the same problem. I was wondering if anyone can suggest what to do.
I couldn't find an error code of 55.50 in the service manual. All 55.xx errors are DC Controller problems. I did find the message "resend upgrade". That refers to a Firmware upgrade that didn't complete successfully. If that's what happened in your case...restart the upgrade and keep away from the printer until the upgrade finishes.
To install the HP as a network printer you need to do the following -
1. Configure the HP's IP address so it matches the IP range of your network. eg if your IP's are 192.168.0.xxx then set the HP to a high number say 100.
2. Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer to the network hub/router and power up the printer.
4. Click on Printers an Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties.
5. Click on Ports and click on Add Port.
6. In available ports - click on Standart TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP's IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enable bidirectional support and then OK
You need to setup the HP printer the same way on every computer on your network.
You can now print from any computer on your network
