Deskjet 3050 Won't Print Wirelessly

Hi there,

 

My new all in one 3050 won't print for me. It is "Offline" in the network page. I feel I have explored every avenue and it will still not print. The wireless network configuration page I printed says everything passed. The home network disagnostic tool says "software missing" after i click test connection. The print diagnostic tool fails on connectivity everytime. I can connect to the printer ip 192.168.1.3 in the browser 95% of the time but not always. My router is a Zyxel P-660HW-T1 v3. I'm really close to tears with frustration, I'm quite computer and networking savvy but I cannot fix this. please help, I'd be eternally grateful.

 

Kind Regards,

 

Larry.

Re: Deskjet 3050 Won't Print Wirelessly

The fact that the printer has an IP address tells me that it is properly connected to your router and that it is a software problem.

 

What operating system?  Did you load the software from the CD or are you using drivers built into the OS?

Re: Deskjet 3050 Won't Print Wirelessly

i had the same issue with my wireless printer working for 2.5 months basically worry free (there were a few "blips" with the router, I resync'd and the issue was resolved).  Most recently I was recieving a message on the printer that "cannot connect to network".  The usual unplugging, turning off, restarting, resyncing did not work.

 

I ended up unistalling the software (I know others tried this and said it didn't work...there were 3 peices of software I had to remove - i was able to complete that successfully).

 

I then reloaded the software, upon set up I plugged the USB cable in again and allowed the printer to use the information on my router from the computer.  First try didn't work.  I hit retry (I had a IP address displaying on the printer at this point) and it worked!

 

good luck!

Re: Deskjet 3050 Won't Print Wirelessly

Well, Larry, When you bought the HP deskjet 3050, you came with a disk. Put the disk in your laptop or PC and agree all the stuff then install. It also came with a USB port. Connect that to your laptop, PC then unplug both lines and it should print.

Re: Deskjet 3050 Won't Print Wirelessly

OK, what error message?  What operating system?  Have you restarted the computer and printer?
