Question about HP LaserJet 3050 All-In-One Printer
I just installed the new driver from HP, but when I select the wizard for the scanner, I don't get the choice of selecting "pdf" in the document to be created. I've tried uninstalling and un-installing the drivers to no avail.
This is the only solution I found within the software. I went to the actual printer and hit the 'scan to' button. I selected SETUP from the menu options. It pulled up some software on my computer that shows the interface between the computer and the printer. I hit the NEW button. The next screen gave me some options and there was a checkbox option that said 'Show the TWAIN dialog after the scan...'. I checked that box. When I went to the next screen, it offered me PDF as an option and I made that my default. This process sets up a new menu option on your drop-down list when you scan. I named it 'PDF to computer' so I would know to pick it for pdfs. I tried to add it to the list of options available on the printer menu, but the new option I created disappeared after I hit UPDATE. But when I tried to scan something it was showing on my options list. When I tested it, it opened some software I never saw before and showed the image as it scanned, which I guess relates to the checkbox I marked. I've tried several times for hours at a time to find any kind of fix for this that didn't involve converting a file to pdf or loading a different software. This fix I found on my own just by hitting buttons on the printer. If you don't like this option, there is some free software out there that uses the scanner to create pdf's. I just didn't want to go that way.
