SOURCE: how to intalling network sanner HP LaserJet M1522nf MFP

If your printer is connected in the Network and you are able to print fine than there is no communication Error.
In htan case if you are not able to scan then you need to upgrade the firmware of the printer and install it and i m sure your printer wiill scan scanning on the Network.
Mentioned below is the link to download the latest firmware of the printer.

However before you start sending firmware to the printer you need to make sure that printer driver is installed on the PC.

Thanks and Regards

Hp p3005x - how to replace formatter board

This is a known issue that cannot be addressed through menus. What you need is a PJL (print job language) file that programs the formatter activate the duplex function. Does your configuration page show the correct serial number and page counts? If not then likely the formatter you purchased was used. If you provide serial number, page count I can provide you with the correct PJL file that will restore your duplex function.

Need to reset the page count after changing out the formatter board.

The page counts and serial number on these units cannot be adjusted or overwritten. You are stuck with the zero count if you installed a new formatter, or the page count on the formatter if you installed a used one. Just put a label on the back that says, formatter changed at XXXXX pages.

How to change the serial number in hp laserjet 3055n after replace the foprmatter board.

I dont have the answer; however the closest I could find in teh 3055 service guide was the following statement:
"Printer job language (PJL) software commands Many PJL scripts are available for restoring parameters such as paper size and page counts after the formatter has been replaced. For comprehensive instructions, see the Printer Job Language Technical Manual and the Printer Job Language Technical Manual Addendum"
I do not have those two manuals but it would seem that is the direction you need to head in order to solve this issue. Many of the HP laserjet's have an easier method than using PJL commands, however this model does not provide such ease of use.
Good luck!

I'm wondering where the serial numbers for an HP 4350 are located

Source: =>

Hewlett Packard printers can have their serial numbers reprogrammed in the field, from the front panel of the printer, with very little special knowledge and no special tools. Any electronic page showing its serial number afterward would be divergent from the actual serial number for the machine. It can be changed back again, too - an unlimited number of times.

Yeah, I know - you'll never trust the page count on a used printer again, but there you have it.

This is only true on some of the newer models, and on the larger ones - not the smaller machines like the 1200, but the larger ones like the 5Si, the 4500, etc.

Canon builds the print engines (basic mechanical arrangements of components) for Hewlett Packard, which only really engineers the firmware - which could be used to implement the hidden codes you're investigating. But I would not be surprised if Canon and HP codes look the same and are implemented at a level common to both brands of machine. It is odd to me that you did not publish any pictures of the test prints from the manufacturer which dominates the industry, though...

Since you can alter the serial number (at will) on an HP machine, that could make your decoding task that much easier, if you have access to one. Set to all 1's, all 2's, etc. and compare test prints.

On the other hand, it also makes the entire schema a joke, since I could program my printer to say it is your printer (copy your serial number), print up some phoneybux, and then set it back to innocent_serial and whistle while I watch your office get raided.

The serial number information is soft-coded to allow the formatter board to be replaced if it fails, while still supporting the configuration page's reportage of that printer's vital stats. You can even load the new formatter with the page count from the old formatter, so that the mechanical parts can be maintained on schedule as they wear out.

Now, this is not true of the Formatter Number, which is the serial number of the formatter card itself. If that is the basis of HP's system of Identity, then the workaround would involve a physical removal of the formatter and its (temporary) replacement with another formatter. For someone engaged in producing phoneybux, this is not an economic hardship.
