No connection HP photosmart 8050 printer

The USB connection to the printer doesn't work.  I wondered if there is a way to take the printer apart to see if the connection is not wired?  How does one take the case off these printers?

Hi from France,
I am now repairing my printer (Photosmart 8050) with the same problem. It is due to the welds of the USB pins of the socket on the printed board. It is thus necessary to open the printer by means of a screwdriver Torx. You need a little soldering iron in order to weld the four pins of the USB socket, and then I recommand to strengthen the connections and the socket by means of hot glue.

best regards,

Philippe

Hp photosmart 8050 won`t print black even though it says it full


Hi there! If you haven`t used the printer in 2-3 months the black ink cartridge has gona dry.Wich means the printer is seeing full ink but the ink isn`t actually coming out from the ink head.Take a peace of clean cloth or cotton and clear the bottom part of the ink head(be verry carfully while cleaning it cuz you may dmg the head.If that doesn`t help just go and buy a new ink cartridge and it will solve your problem.

My iMac says my HP Photosmart 8050 is not connected


the USB port on the back became loose. its common on that series. the ONLY thing you could do, is to take apart the printer (find the screws, they're torx, you'll figure it out while you watch TV) and once you get to the main board, buy a soldering iron at the $1 store and heat up the connections. At most, you may have to buy a little bit of solder for $3 at radio shack. once you do that, the printer works perfectly for a very long time!
