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.

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.

As i understand that you u r able to print and copy fine which ensure that there is no issue with the connectivity and scanning device.
However next troubleshooting comes in picture is software as per you have mentioned that yoiu have downloaded and installed the complete software couple of times still the issue persists.
In that case we need to Programn Scan to option in the printer software and on your all in one.

Unable to set up scan feature.

First question is do you have universal send on the copier. If you have a Send tab on the touch screen you have it, if you only have a scan tab you do not.

With the send tab you can set the device up to scan, create a file and send it to a network destination. With the scan button you have to install the color network scan gear program on your computer.

This software is just a twain driver that interfaces with the copier through the network. It does not give you any software to drive the scanner, it only gives you a choice for the copier in your list of scanners. You have to use some other program (i.e. Acrobat standard or MS document imaging) to drive. After you install it open it up, let it discover the machine on the netowrk and close it. The interface only points to the device on the wore, it is not directly used for scanning.

If you have a send button I would recommend for your situation that you scan to a shared folder on your desktop. First you create the shared folder, and make sure you can see it from another PC on the network. If your other PC's can't see it the copier won't either. Create a user on the computer with the shared folder for the copier to use. Set that users password to never expire.
Press the additional functions hard button
Press the touch screen button for address book
Add an address to address book # 1
The type of address will be SMB
Register a name for the address (Scan to PC is fine)
there should be a browse button on the screen, press it
Use the up and down arrow to browse up and down the tree
when you see your network browse from the domain to the PC you are scanning to
When you try to expand the PC you will have to enter in the user and password you created for scanning
point to the shared folder you will use
OK your way back out to the user screens
Have fun scanning
