HP LaserJet 3030 Scan application does not work.

I get the same message as the other poster. I think that the problem may have something to do with the order the software for two scanners was installed in.. Summary: Was using LaserJet 3030 parallel interface and a IEEE-1394 scanner. Switching LaserJet 3030 to USB required removing HP software and ''hp LaserJet TWAIN 1.0 (32-32)'', Scan, and Send fax don't work. Here are the details. I am running Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 3. I had installed the LaserJet 3030 using the parallel interface and then an Epson Perfection 3200. Things were working fine. I was also able to print on a remotely connected LaserJet 3030. I had another machine using the same Epson scanner and LaserJet 3030 through the respective USB interfaces, with this machine using the LaserJet 3030 parallel interface and Epson IEEE-1394a interface. I disconnected the parallel interface and connected the LaserJet 3030 USB interface. The software didn't see a new device, so I removed all LaserJet 3030 printers (local and remote) and fax device, removed all other traces of HP and installed the software. (Actually, the guy from HP did software stuff remotely.) Now when I try to Scan or use Paint Shop Pro with source ''hp LaserJet 3030 TWAIN (32-32)'' I get: 1. first, the normal dialogue and the startup window that has the ''hp invent'' logo, a drawing of a scanner, and the heading ''HP Scanning'' 2. then an error popup window with title ''hp scanning'' that looks something like:
(X) Sorry, could not find required user interface files.
(Please reinstall scanning software.)
3. If I wait long enough, I get a popup window with title ''Error'' that looks about like this:
/! Unable to communicate with HP scanning software. Please verify that it has been installed and is working properly. If
this problem persists, please shut down your application and try again.


The other machine works with both scanners on USB.

Can i feed 8 1/2 inch x 11 inch poster weight paper into my 3030?

Poster weight is too heavy for this machine, when paper is picked up it has to curl around the rollers in the back and do a complete turn-around. poster weight will just jam at the first turn.

Hp laserjet 3030 problem

Remove and replace the side covers again. One of them (I think right) has a tab that pushes an interconnect lever that if not reinstalled correctly or carefully will cause this error.

Here's the HP Service manual to walk you through it again.

Hope this helps you.
