    My wife's MacBook is running OX X 10.6.8. That system was able to find an update that worked.


    So we switched printers. She will use the HP and I will use the Kodak printer.


    Is there a way to get notifed when the driver problem is fixed for OS X 10.7.5?

    The driver for Lion is fully functional, the problem more likely somehow related with your envoirnment.


    Try the following steps to get the problem sorted:


    Step one: Reset the printer system:


    Step two: remove any current HP drivers

    Go to Computer > Library > Printers and move the HP folder to the trash.

    Enter PPDs > Contents > Resources - search for 3050 and move any instance of the 3050A / J611 to the trash.


    Step three: Repair the disk permissions

    Go to Utilities > Disk Utility and select your active boot volume.

    Click Repair Disk Permissions and allow severla minutes till the log indicate it been completed.


    Step four: Install the latest software

    Download and install the software below, be sure to check HP Recommended Software during the installation. 1&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&os=219&product=5115807&sw_lang=


    Step five: Update the drivers

    Clcik the Apple icon, select Software Update. be sure to select any listed HP Update and click Install.


    Please let me know of any problem,

    I can now use the printer. Thank you.


    The only (minor) problem I had was with Finder. It wasn't allowing me to see the /Library directory so I used the Terminal program and basic Unix commands to remove the /Library/Printers/hp directory.

    Thanks again,

    Hey Shlomi,


    I followed your advice and it worked for finding and installing the 3054A driver on my Mac with Os X v 10.7.5.  However, even though the computer can find my printer through the wireless connection, it will not print.  The job sits in the queue looking like it is loading.  I did a wi-fi diagnostoc on the printer and it said everything was fine.  Any ideas?
