Laserjet 3050 PDF scan for Windows 7

Looking for the driver to setup PDF scans in windows 7. I had everything working fine last week with me old computer with Vista but got a new one friday and cant scan to PDF with 7. Printing and regular scanning is just fine but we scan almost everything into PDF files.

Thank you in advance for any help.

I have a client on my network that is having the exact problem. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

Same for me. HP appears to be ignoring the 3050 in all regards. They have the 3050 driver, but it is a universal PRINT driver, and does nothing for the scanner.

When I try to scan, my pages go through half-way, and it hangs. Then any scanning software you choose (including that which comes with Windows 7), says there is a jam, when their really isn't (and I have tried scanning brand new blank pages, even...same result).

HP...hello..anybody out there?

I am having the same problem with the Laserjet 3055. It worked with XP, but when I migrated over to Windows 7 it does not work.

I had the same problem - Windows 7 scans would hang about 2/3 of the way through the progress bar.

LaserJet 3050 had firmware 20060321 on it. I eventually found the *Vista* firmware updater:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=18...

and ran that under Windows 7 anyway....

Printer now has 20070331 and scans are working!

So as usual, if a reboot doesn't fix it, try the latest firmware :)

HTH,
Richard

Had the same problem as above.  Win 7 64 Bit.  Scanner would hang up.  I installed the firmware update recommended. Scanner works!
