Question about HP LaserJet 3050 All-In-One Printer
I downloaded a firmware upgrade for HP 3050, installed it and now the printer is unresponsive. The menu button (or any other controls) on the printer will not respond. My computer can not print even a test page. What should I do?

I undertand that you are receiving a blank page when printing from computer.
Please follow the below given instructions to get the issue resolved which is caused due to DEP feature of Operating sytem.
Disable the Data Execution Prevention in Windows XP and check by following the below steps:
1. Click on Start
2.Control Panel->System->Advanced->Performance->Settings->Data Execution Prevention
It needs to be set to "Turn on for essential windows programs only", which is the default.
If you set it to "Turn on for all programs except those I specify", then the all-in-one driver stops working and you get blank pages.
1) Right-click on My Computer, and select Properties.
2) Click on the Advanced tab.
3) Under Performance, click Settings.
4) Click the Data Execution Prevention tab.
5) Select the Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select: option.
6) Click Add....
7) Browse to C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86\3\hpzeng05.exe
and click Open.
8) Click Apply.
9) Click OK, and OK again.
Then restart the computer so as the chages to be effective

I had the same problem and couldn't figure it out until I found this on the web - I changed the DEP setting and now I can print just fine. Hope this helps you too!!

I just figured out my issue. It had to do with DEP − Data Execution
Prevention. I had remembered that I was fooling around with this a couple
weeks ago and had changed it to "Turn on DEP for all programs and services
except those I select" in which I had Windows Explorer checked. I just got
done selecting the original which states "Turn on DEP for essential Windows
programs and services only", rebooted, and now I can print again to my hp
The DEP can be found under control panel−>system−>Advanced Tab−>Performance
Settings−>Data Execution Prevention Tab
Hope this helps.

try this.. i got the same problem before.. and the main problem is the NO MECH MODE.. try pressing the setup button then take the plug out of your printer.. (still pressing the setup button) and put the plug back.. and it will remove the no mech mode.. then you could print like before.. i hope this helps
