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!!!!!

Puas

Error 344- Fax Function

I have been unable to send faxes to different numbers for months now. I keep getting Error 344. It always sounds like HP 3050 is able to go as far as establishing the connection and then it fails. 
Please help. I need this for my business and can't afford to keep running out to a fax/copy place when I should be doing this from home.

Comm Error 344 is: (Note that this is on the receivers end)

The remote machine has failed to respond to a fax command from the product because the connection is interrupted.

The remote user has pressed the Stop button while the remote machine was receiving.

Under rare conditions, incompatibility between the two machines can cause the remote machine to simply abandon the call.

This website will show you what the error codes are.

Hello All,

Please perform the following:
Super NVRAM init
When a super NVRAM init is performed, the all-in-one language and telecom country/region settings
are undefined. The user is prompted to set the language and telecom country/region. Until these settings
are defined, the all-in-one will not return to the Ready state.
CAUTION A Super NVRAM init erases all data that is stored in both the unprotected and
protected NVRAM memory.
To perform a super NVRAM init
1.
Turn off the all-in-one.
2. Press and hold down the * and 5 buttons.
3. Continue to hold down the buttons while you turn on the all-in-one. Hold the buttons throughout
the entire power-on sequence.
4. When Permanent Storage Init. appears on the control-panel display, release the buttons.
5. When prompted, set the language and telecom country/region.
6. Allow the all-in-one to return to Ready before using it.

Win32NT 5.1.2600.0

I looked at your answer to Gargamel and this is NOT how my Win32NT problem is showing up. It appears in its own window with an OK button at the bottom. Clicking O.K. sens you to another window that says:
(Window title)= HPTLBXFX.exe
(Window contents)= Processid 0x4c0, Threadid 0x4c4 to proceed to debug click cancel to exit press o.k. (and there are cancel and o.k. button at the bottom

This error seems related to the HP Laserjet 3050 printer specifically the HPTOOLBOX and having experienced the "HP TOOL BOX" error. Any further help would be greatly appreciated. We are running Windows XP not NT with a 330 Intel Celeron processor

Hello Hawkmistress

I just saw your request. I didn't get an email notification of it so my apologies for any delay.

Deselecting HPTLBFX.exe in MSCONFIG (or anything else for that matter in MSCONFIG) is only a temporary solution. Disabling items in MSCONFIG is a trouble-shooting tool. Once you've determined that a particular item in MSCONFIG is causing issues, then the next step is to address that particular item and, eventually, get MSCONFIG back to Normal Boot configuration.

I've resonded to more than 200 questions in the short time I've been here on Fixya. Unfortunately, I don't know which problem you're referring to. If you'd like to give me a link to that problem or, better yet, explain to me in detail the equipment involved and the problem you're experiencing, I'd be more than happy to work w/ you on it.

It sounds as though there is a possibility HP Toolbox is conflicting or being conflicted w/ or by another program or it is, in itself, corrupted, etc.

(01) My recommendation would be to disconnect from your computer the HP Printer that this particular HP Toolbox is associated with.

(02) Uninstall the HP Software that includes that HP Toolbox.

(03) Reboot your computer.

(04) Restore MSCONFIG to Normal Boot.

(05) Reboot your computer.

(06) Clean up w/ THIS utility.

(07) Reboot your computer.

(08) Clean up w/ CCleaner again.

(09) Then re-install your printer software.

** Be sure to create System Restore points all along the way.

** If you have other HP Software installed that also includes a monitoring program and/or toolbox, please, let me know BEFORE you take the steps I've outlined here.

If you'd like me to pursue this with you, please, post back here w/ the results and your observations. Hold off, please, on assigning a "best solution rating" until the issue has been resolved or diagnosed. I'll continue to work w/ you as long as the problem remains open.

Thank you,
BJ @:)

I am getting "memory is low/ insufficient memory" in my hp laserjet M2727 printer. what should I do?

The internal memory is full try a nvram.

1. Turn the printer off
2. Hold down the right arrow and the cancel button
3. Reboot the printer while holding the buttons and hold until permanent storage is displayed. Let go of the buttons and wait for the ready message on the display.

This reset will clear all of your saved settings and contacts, if networked print out a configuration report after resetting the printer to view the ip address (IPV4). If the IP address has changed you will need to update the print driver's port tab and update the port.
