Re: Is Laserjet 3055 compatible with OS X Lion (10.7) for print, fax, and scan

I have just been able to make my 3390 work (including scanning) in a clean installatino of Mountain Lion with this procedure:

 

  1. Reset printing software in System Preferences
  2. Restart
  3. Run the installer from LJMFP305x339xOSX10.5Update-v8.2.dmg
  4. Force-quit the installer when reached 71 items remaining to be installed
  5. Connect the printer via USB (I was not asked by the software, probably because of the force-quit, just simply did that)
  6. Restart
  7. Run the HP Setup Assistant via sudo
  8. Update software via the App Store app
  9. Continue with the Setup Assistant to setup USB printer
  10. Try printing -> success
  11. Try scanning using the HP Scan app -> success
  12. Disconnect printer from USB
  13. Connect printer to network
  14. Run the HP Setup Assistant via sudo
  15. Setup the network printer by manually entering its IP address (I didn't want to select the printer by name even though the printer did appear in the list)
  16. Try printing -> success
  17. Try scanning the HP Scan app -> success

I think that some of the steps might be omitted (maybe steps 5 thru 12), but didn't want to spend too much time testing...

Hi Hon-za, while that may work, people might want to also consider running the "scrubber" before doing any of the above steps. This will eliminate any possible conflicts.

Re: Is Laserjet 3055 compatible with OS X Lion (10.7) for print, fax, and scan

God knows I've tried a whole saturday the above trick, but it never worked for me.

After hours of trial/errors, I managed to force quit juste before everything getting erased : it's not only a "not too late nor too soon" problem, because sometimes error messages appear during the process.

 

I finally could do a sudo setup, but after whole process, I never got the HP Scan nor HP Director to see the printer, in USB nor through the network. (I'm running 10.8.2 on a MacBook Air, with a Laserjet 3052.)

 

I've got one question though, about the following steps :

7) Run the HP Setup Assistant via sudo
8) Update software via the App Store app
9) Continue with the Setup Assistant to setup USB printer

 

Does the 7th step mean that the HP Assistant must continue until its end, or that you just launch it through a sudo Temrinal command, leave it waiting, and then go on with step 8, for finally completing the setup after the update ?

 

Thanks form Paris, France, and a lot and congratulations for your work.

Re: Is Laserjet 3055 compatible with OS X Lion (10.7) for print, fax, and scan

Hi everybody

I finally got my HP Laserjet 3052 to scan under Mountain Lion 10.8.2. I precisely followed the steps described in :
https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4300712?start=0&tstart=0
There is a missing link though, so I copy the article here with the right download page :

In order to install the previous software you may try following the workaround below:
 
Enter System Preferences > Print & Scan, select the LaserJet 3052 printer and click the Minus sign to remove it.
Download the Mac OS 10.5 software below by clicking the download button:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en &cc=us&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=1140784&swItem=ma-58935-1&prodNameId=114077 9&swEnvOID=219&swLang=8&taskId=135&mode=4&idx=0
That's the link that didn't work. I Googled for "LJMFP305x339xOSX10.5Update-v8.2.dmg" and I found it (I forgot the URL though, apologies)
Follow the installation by skipping the Setup Assistant till the installation will finish.
Perform the following steps in order to provide the Setup Assistant the right permissions to complete on Mountain Lion:
Open Terminal from the Utilities folder
Type “sudo “ (with space) in the Terminal.
Locate the HP Setup Assistant in folder Applications/HP LaserJet Software
Right-click (or CTRL+Left click) the HP Setup Assistant and choose “Show Package Contents”.
Open the “Contents” folder and then click “MacOS” folder. It should contain the Unix Executable File of HP Setup Assistant.
Drag the HP Setup Assistant (Unix Executable File) into the Terminal and press enter.
Terminal will ask for the password of the user.
After writing the password press Enter Button.
Now follow the Setup Assistant Steps to complete the installation.

And everything works fine now, except that scanning is slower than before. And if HP Scan or HP Director don't see you AiO at once, try to relaunch it, that worked for me.

Have a nice day !

Morandi!  You ROCK!  This is an AWESOME solution and I've been working on this for 3 DAYS!!  THANK YOU!  BTW for future use - hp no longer has the driver on their site - but if you do a google search on it - its easy to find... for now.  :-)
