You have to download the driver and the software. It is the software which will allow you to all sorts of things with the scanned image or document.

From the menu on the left, select software and driver download.
Choose your operating system.
Hope this will work for you.

HP LaserJet 3050 - can't scan to a pdf format


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.

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!!!!!
