Hi,
If you have installed the printer using Add printer and faxes then you have just install the printer drivers which will allow you to print over the network.
However if you want to scan over the network than you have to install the complete software of the printer .
If you do not have Software CD than you can download and install the software fom Link below.

I have managed to resolve the problem at work, there seems to be no solution anywhere and even HP claim it is not designed for the job, but here's the fix:

Assuming the computer is already connected to the printer, download the Firmware update from:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=1161389&prodNameId=1140780&swEnvOID=228&swLang=8&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=ma-38209-5
Run the application, select the printer and update it.

Go to Control Panel and open Scanners and Cameras.
In the "Additional Tasks" bar on the left, select the option to enable network scanning - this allows the port or service through the Windows Firewall.

Have the CD to hand and the printer DISCONNECTED from USB.
Install the software, doing a COMPLETE installation.
When prompted, select NETWORK, follow the instructions and enter your device's HostName (If on DHCP), IP or MAC address.
When prompted (It'll say that even though it's being installed over the network, it has to be connected locally), connect the USB cable.
The software will install, the you'll be asked to restart.
Restart.
Once logged on again, it'll send a test page and ask you to register (select no, don't remind me) and set-up your faxing (If you wish to). Windows may attempt to install the device - just click cancel, as we will now DISCONNECT the USB cable.

Go to Control Panel > Scanners and Cameras (You can right-click and drag a shortcut to this location to your desktop) Your scanner should now be visible.

Open the scanner and click "Preview Scan".

That'll be it!

When I try to install the driver on my Windows XP Professional equippted PC, the PC does not detect the printer. As a result, I can print but not scan.


I think you are connecting it through Network cable. And it happens at time that its not being detected because of the Internet Security program you are running as the computer takes it as foreign address.

I would like to assist you further in it.

Odds are that you have a bad toner cartridge; especially common when using remanufactured cartridges. (Staples, Corporate Express, etc.) Replace your cartridge with an OEM HP cartridge and you should be OK.

Not scanning or copying when using the ADF on HP laserjet 3055


Based on the assumption it's mechanically ok, check the cable connection between the document feeder and the base, if damaged or worked look it can cause errors. If it is a sensor error, check for a small bit of paper or even a staple from a prior jam.

HP laserJet 3055 network connection


HOW TO CONNECT HP 3055 TO ROUTER/WIRELESS NETWORK. WINDOWS XP/WINDOWS VISTA.

I have just finished successfully connecting my HP 3055 to my router and using it over wireless on 2 computers, one with windows XP SP2 and one with VISTA.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR CONNECTING HP 3055 ON XP:

FIRST CONNECT THE PRINTER TO THE ROUTER WITH A ETHERNET CABLE. FIND OUT THE IP ADDRESS OF YOUR PRINTER. By me it was 192.168.0.66

Go to CONTROL PANEL and open "PRINTERS AND FAXES". on the top left choose "ADD A PRINTER" click "NEXT".

In the "LOCAL OR NETWORK PRINTER" window, choose "LOCAL PRINTER ATTACHED TO THIS COMPUTER" and uncheck "AUTOMATICALLY DETECT"... click "NEXT".

In the "SELECT A PRINTER PORT" window click the radio button "CREATE A NEW PORT", click the down arrow and choose "STANDARD TCP/IP PORT".

In the window that pops up click "NEXT"

In the ADD PORT window, where it says "PRINTER NAME OR IP ADDRESS, type in your printers IP address, by me it was 192.168.0.66. The bottom line will fill in automatically. Click "NEXT".

In the "INSTALL PRINTER SOFTWARE" window, if you have the disk just choose "HAVE DISK" and install from there. If not, in the left column choose "HP" and in the right column choose "HP LASERJET 3050" (by me it showed up in the list, you can download the driver from here http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=1140780&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=1161389&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=228

click "NEXT"

In the "NAME YOUR PRINTER" window, choose a name and also choose if you want to set it as the default printer (recommended) Click "NEXT"

In the next window choose whether or not you want to share the printer, and if you do assign a printer name. Click NEXT. The next window is optional if you want to make a name, you can just click NEXT and your done! Print a test page to make sure that all is fine.
