Question about HP LaserJet 3050 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

I also have tried updating firmware on my HP 3050

After I ran the update, the printer does not do anything - no buttons work or even beep, and restarting it does not help

    I had a chat wiht HP today - they got me to start the unit with the star key and the green check mark key pressed to do a factory re-set. No luck there, then they told me that the "formatter of the printer needs to be replaced". It's a bit dissapointing that their software seems to have caused an issue, and (now I'm out of warranty) I have to pay to have it fixed.

HP LaserJet 2840 quit working when we were installing firmware update and power to building went off for a few seconds.

firmware corruption issue you will need to remove that printer from computer screen then reinstall it

then do firmware installation pre upgrade to stabilize(use cd or download of older version of firmware

once that's done then try the update again which won't work if old firmware is corrupted

I have a HP office jet L7500 it has worked fine and has no problem printing any of my emails or Word document but when I try to print a photo from my PICTURES stored in Windows Vista the yellow light...


If the printer is asking for firmware update, there is an update available on HP website. Click on the download button below to download.
Download the update and install it. turn off the printer after the update is installed and power on and try to print.

Download the firmware

*Note : If you have setup the printer on router/network, my suggestion would be to connect the printer using USB cable and do the firmware update for better results.

Wrong firmware installed in HP LJ 3050

I am very sorry to have to be the bear of bad news. Usually doing a failed firmware update (or wrong firmware version) you have to return to factory or have a local computer printer shop that deals in HP printers repair this firmware mixup. There is sometimes a firmware recovery mode that can help however You would have to contact HP and ask them how to get into firmware recovery mode.
Sorry hope this helps answer your quesiton.

Try updating the printer's firmware. I had the same problem with my Windows XP machine and my Kodak 5500 AiO Printer. Then, I went to Kodak's website, looked for my printer, and downloaded their firmware update. The only curious thing is that when I ran the software to update the printer, it said the firmware version of the update was the same as the firmware version the printer already had. I went ahead and updated anyway, and now it works!
Just be careful when updating the firmware on your printer, follow Kodak's intructions.

The buttons on the front don't work.

Have you tried updating the firmware of your Zen V Plus? I've had mine for almost an year and haven't had these issues -- I updated the firmware as soon as I unpacked it.

try downloading the
MP3 player recovery tool from Creative's website (the tool contains the latest firmware update available -- 1.15.03). Plug your ZV+ into your PC, run the program and let it update the firmware. Then format, reload your music and try it.

By the way, before updating the firmware, let the battery have a full charge, ok?
