HP Deskjet 3050A Printer Review & Troubleshoot:

HP Deskjet 3050A Ink:

Replacement ink cartridges for the HP Deskjet 3050A printer are now available as genuine HP inks or the more affordable high capacity compatible HP 301XL. In our opinion, the cost of replacement inks for the printer should be considered before making the purchase of the printer. The running costs of the printer during its lifetime are crucial to the cost of printing and the compatible versions of HP Deskjet 3050A ink cartridges certainly offers alternative options to the expensive genuine HP inks.

The printer is a 3-in-one printer for basic home uses including printing, scanning, and copying. However, this low cost printer would not be able to cope up with heavy load of any small business or office uses. Low cost refers to the low expense to purchase the printer and the running costs of the HP Deskjet 3050A Ink.

The printer comes with dual-ink cartridge bay which increases its running cost and limits its print quality. However, the printer offers many other great features like wireless connectivity and ePrint system to help you directly print any document from your phone, tablet or any other supported device.

The ePrint system allows the users to email their files as an attachment to a unique email address (assigned by HP to their printer). As soon as the printer receives these emails and files, it prints them out.

The printer has an attractive design with a 5 cm monochrome LCD display that pops out at the top front corner of the printer. The LCD control panel offers a quick access to apps, one touch wireless installation, and setup menu etc. The printer has a small paper tray and does not have duplexer.

  • High speed printing
  • Great appearance
  • Responsive control panel allowing quick access to many shortcut apps and setups
  • Easy one touch wireless setup
  • HP Deskjet 3050A Ink easy to install
  • Low paper capacity
  • Single-sided printing or simplex printing
  • Limited to home uses only
  • Dual ink cartridge bay limits the printing quality
  • High running cost
  • No memory card support
  • Lacks ethernet port

A great printer for home users and offers many attractive features at very considerable price. However, the dual-ink cartridge bay limits the possibility of printing professional high-quality images. It can also be very expensive if you are printing high volume of coloured documents or photos.

In other cases, old and dusty papers also make the print look blurry. If the sheets were stored in the paper tray for a long while, replace them with a new pile.

In case of photo blanks don’t use leave the papers out for more than 30 minutes.

Another issue in prints can arrive due to wrinkled or curled papers. If the printouts are having lines or bands, check the sheets and make sure they are all clean and smooth.
