All in One printer problem, Can anyone help

By wagihs ·
I have hp all in one 3050 printer, I had some issues with the scanning software, so, I tried to update the firmware but after about 50% the printer stopped responding and the status through the usb cable is NOT Ready state, and the printer panel shows only HP and not responding to any keypress by the way there is an ethernet connection for this printer but i didn't try to use it for updating the firmware. Can anyone help in this issue.

Disconnect the printer from the computer.

Uninstall the printer drivers.

Reboot the computer.

Reconnect the printer, allowing the computer to re-discover the printer and install the drivers for it.

That way it'll get you back to the start.

What was the problem that made you attempt to upgrade the firmware for it?

If "the printer is not discoverable by the computer anymore"...

Perhaps you ought to ensure that ALL traces of the printer having been previously connected are thoroughly removed. This INCLUDES the registry.

Download and run CCleaner. Here is the link:

Maybe THEN the computer will recognise the printer and allow a fresh install of the supporting software.

If that works, but you still have a compatibility problem, I would not advise trying to cure it by upgrading the FIRMWARE - better to visit the manufacturer's site and get any SOTWARE upgrades.

Or, perhaps, PATCHES for your particular hardware combination.
