HP 3030 printer

I can print manually with my HP3030 printer. However, I cannot print from the computer; documents and web pages. I had wanted to print two pages from my tax return. But, I mistakenly pressed the print button for my TurboTax tax return; 15 pages. To stopped the printer from printing all 15 pages; I pulled the electrical plug from the printer. Then, the problem started. I disconnected all the plugs to clear the printer. Still I cannot print from the computer. Your assistane greatly appreciated.

Nobody likes giving bad news, but removing power from the printer while in operation has a very good chance of damaging the cirucitry of the printer.

Next time, simply open the paper tray, which will cause an error light to come on and the print job will stop. Or hit the cancel button on top of the printer. Either way, after that you can turn the power switch off, unplug the power, and then cancel the print job from your computer if the print icon is still present on the bottom right corner of your screen.

You may be able to bring the printer to a service technician to repair the problem, but it might not be fixable at this point.

HP3030 won't print any image, even the test page comes out blank. Any ideas?


Dear Icare, If you are a technical person than only you can solve this problem otherwise you should take it to any technician. You printer's problem is not so major but doing this is major. There is a lens which situated in between the heater unit and the drum of your cartridge, when you set the cartridge. This lens only prints letters on drum and drum on paper. In your case there is some dust on your printers lens for which the lens can't print on drum and drum can't on paper. Hope it will solve your problem.

HP3030 - burned LIU - how to tell if Formatter board is still OK?


First of all the LIU is a daughter card that fits onto the formatter, its only function is to enable you to send and receive faxes. The ports on the formatter allows PC to communicate to printer by USB or via network.

Try printing the configuration page if this page prints correctly then you know that engine controller and the formatter are working properly together. If it doesn't print try engine test this test excludes the formatter. If engine test good then you're looking at bad formatter, and or purchasing a new printer.

Try blowing out the hole where the little black toggle is, dust on the sensor below can stop it from sensing a document. If you google for HP3030 parts you will see many places that have ADF assemblies for your machine, not too difficult to change.
