Question about HP Photosmart 8050 InkJet Printer
First of all, you'll need to COMPLETELY uninstall the printer:
1. Unplug it from the computer.
2. Uninstall the ALL software/drivers through Add/Remove Programs (or Programs and Features - if you're using Windows Vista/7).
4. Restart the computer.
4. Go to Printers and Faxes (through the Control Panel) and make sure the printer is NOT listed. If it does - delete it.
5. This is an important step, follow carefully:
7. Reinstall the printer software/driver (DON'T PLUG THE USB CORD YET) using the installation CD (or better, download the latest software from here!).
8. Plug the USB cord when asked - or when setup is done.
Please do tell if your problem's still unsolved!

Hi there! If you haven`t used the printer in 2-3 months the black ink cartridge has gona dry.Wich means the printer is seeing full ink but the ink isn`t actually coming out from the ink head.Take a peace of clean cloth or cotton and clear the bottom part of the ink head(be verry carfully while cleaning it cuz you may dmg the head.If that doesn`t help just go and buy a new ink cartridge and it will solve your problem.
