    I use Windows XP and when I try to scan, the HP tells me that there is no set up on the PC. What's wrong?

    After I insert the documents and press scan, the scanner says that it is waiting for my PC... then that it is busy.

    What gives?

How do i set up the scanner part on my hp laser jet 3050 printer?

Correct me if I am wrong but doesn't this printer come with mac drivers? But I am not supprised to head that HP is alienating you. They do the same for Linux users. Although there is a growing base of support coming from HP. Maybe you should switch to Linux.

Scanned pictures are black and white


if the unit makes color copies correctly, the scanner is working correctly, the application you are scanning to sets the size, resolution, color/b&w, etc. you will need to enter into the application and set it for color.

if u have any ?'s let us know, we will Fix Ya.

HP LASERJET 3050 SCANNER: ERROR (not set up on pc).


Shirley,

If your still looking for a solution, or to those of you who have a similar problem, the following fixed my problem after trying to resolve the issue over the last year!!!!

I also received the "not set up on pc" message and tried re-installing the software numerous times.

Finally resorted to re-installing windows XP (because of this and other software glitches) and re-installed the Laserjet 3050 software again...but could not get the printer to install.

The problem was occuring while the software was asking to "plug in the usb cable", but would not complete the installation. It was not recognizing the device....the solution was to reset the laserjet 3050!!!!

to reset, push the "menu" button, < (left arrow), go to "service", "enter" button, > (right arrow), "Restore Defaults", "enter" button.
This should reset the factory defaults.

After this, I re-installed software, working!!!!!
