HP deskjet 3050a J611 series and Mac Osx 10.7.1

I am having the same problem as Tom above. When I am trying to install the printer it says the devise has been configured but will then not let me proceed stating that my mac can not locate my devise on the network. It will also not let me set up eprint. 

 

I reside in university collage accommodation so I do not have the option to start messing around with routers. 

 

Any advise?

Hi!

I have 2 mac laptops...One with osx 10.6 and the other one is osx 10.7.1. I was able to install the printer with the 10.6, but not with the 10.7.1. What should I do? Thanks!

If the printer is installed (and connected to your wireless network), you can simply:

 

1. Go to the Apple manu > System Preferences > Print & Scan.

2. Click the + sign to add the printer.

3. Select the printer, then click the Add button when it becomes available.

The problem is that it says that the printer HP deskjet 3050A all in one J611 series is not compatible higher than OSX 10.6.

Is there an upgrade so that my Mac OSX 10.7.1 can use this printer?

No, that is not true.  This printer is compatible up to the current OS X 10.8.  Your CD may not be compatible, but.....

 

Download and install the latest software for your printer from the "Support & Drivers" link at the top of this page.

Download and install this: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=al-107372-1&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en...

 

Make sure the USB cable is NOT connected to the printer when you start installing the HP software.  The software iwll ask you what type of installation you want.  Choose Wireless (or USB if that is what you want).  Follow the instructions.

 

If you choose wireless, the software will ask you to connect a USB cable temporarily so that the software can describe the wireless network to the printer.  Do this ONLY when the software asks you to.
