Question about HP LaserJet 3055 All-In-One Printer

2 Answers

Text comes out looking like bar codes from HP 3055 all in one

We have a 4 month old HP 3055 all in one printer. Soon after we got it we started having printing problems--the text often comes out looking like bar codes on a product box. HP tech support wasn't much help with their ideas. The only thing that works is to unplug it for a minute, then re-start. Till it happens again. Anyone ever dealt with this problem? Thanks.

Re: text comes out looking like bar codes from HP 3055...

Before you buy anything to fix it, when you buy an hp you have a 1 year warranty for parts & labor. I would tell them to have someone to come & look at it & if that doesn't work I would have them replace the machine. I have the same exact one for over 6 months now & I have had no problem.

I would suggest changing the toner cartridge, if that doesn't work, i would install a new laser scanner motor.

Can't print to old applications

The issue your having is with the Operating system compatability. The HP 3055 is compatible with 98, ME, XP, Window 2000 and forward. It won't do windows 3.1 or 95 well even if your computer will, the disconnect comes when the software is sending old print commands to a new style print driver.

Your best hope is to download and install the HP Printdriver for Windows 98 and try it as it's the most tolerant of old gear. Download the PCL 5 as the PCL6 is too new and probably not going to work.

As an alternate try to download each of the printdrivers for the differnt era windows and try them. It's a hard problem that may not have a solution other than upgrading the accounting software.

If it's simply a connection problem, they do make a USB to Parallel addaptor which may help you with the physical connection issue.

Here's a link:

Hope that helps you.

HP 3055 AIO prevents boot-up / causes lock-ups in Win2000

HP 3055 prevents boot up in Win2000, causes lockup when connected

Actually I deleted the PCL 6 drivers which had been installed by the original HP driver CD, went to the HP website and downloaded the PCL 5e drivers instead.

I also added a USB switchbox between the PC and Printer, leaving the default setting as disconnected. Now, it boots up fine, without having the HP printer connected.

In use, I wait until just before I need to print a document, switch the USB selector to connected and obtain hardcopies of my documents.

Then, to ensure against screen lockups / freezing, I switch the USB selector back to disconnected.

It's a kludge and not what you should have to do for a $400 laser printer AIO device.

Naturally, I am completely unimpressed with HP software engineers, who have a functionality somewhat below Dilbert and his crew.
