Color laser jet 2840 is not scanning. It says: pc not set up. I have the connections in properly from my lap top to my laser jet. What is the problem


I had a similiar problem and was using Windows Vista which was not compatible with the XP Installation package. The onboard drivers would not work either. Check to see if your printer is compatible with your version of windows.

HP Laser Jet 3055 is showing scanner error 6 and Comm. error 386, 232, & 388


This is due to a hardware failure, the scanner assembly and the formatter board will need to be replaced.

NVRAM INIT
1. Turn off the all-in-one
2. Press and hold down the * and enter buttons.
3. Continue to hold down the buttons while you turn on the all-in-one. Hold the buttons throughout the entire power-on sequence.
4. When Permanent Storage Init. appears on the control-panel display, release the buttons.
5. Allow the all-in-one to return to Ready before using it. storage init. appears, and then release the buttons.

if this does not work contact hp 1800-334-5144.

Hp 3050 laser jet printer the fax page is black


The scanner in your FAX is nothing working -- i.e., "100%-black" or "100%-white", and so what is transmitted is what the scanner has scanned, improperly.

Hi i have a problem..i want to scan 60 pages and i have the hp laser jet 3050.i scan the first page and then it shows a message to the screen of pc ''would you like to scan another page?'' and i have to go...


Rena,
Put ALLof the pages into the sheetfeeder all at once.
The scanner will automatically scan all pages.
The sheetfeeder may only accept 30 pages, so you may have to do two scan jobs.

Scanned pictures are black and white


if the unit makes color copies correctly, the scanner is working correctly, the application you are scanning to sets the size, resolution, color/b&w, etc. you will need to enter into the application and set it for color.

if u have any ?'s let us know, we will Fix Ya.

Scanning with Laserjet 3050 on IMAC with leopard


Correct me if I am wrong but doesn't this printer come with mac drivers? But I am not supprised to head that HP is alienating you. They do the same for Linux users. Although there is a growing base of support coming from HP. Maybe you should switch to Linux.

HP LASERJET 3050 SCANNER: ERROR (not set up on pc).


Shirley,

If your still looking for a solution, or to those of you who have a similar problem, the following fixed my problem after trying to resolve the issue over the last year!!!!

I also received the "not set up on pc" message and tried re-installing the software numerous times.

Finally resorted to re-installing windows XP (because of this and other software glitches) and re-installed the Laserjet 3050 software again...but could not get the printer to install.

The problem was occuring while the software was asking to "plug in the usb cable", but would not complete the installation. It was not recognizing the device....the solution was to reset the laserjet 3050!!!!

to reset, push the "menu" button, < (left arrow), go to "service", "enter" button, > (right arrow), "Restore Defaults", "enter" button.
This should reset the factory defaults.

After this, I re-installed software, working!!!!!
