Sensor malfunction

P. Dash, Amazon
28 August 2010
  • Summary: Even if the paper tray has enough papers in it, it says "Out of paper, load paper ...". I have wasted hours on this stupid issue. Seems as if some kind of sensor does not work - what a waste of money and time (sigh...) I am not unfamiliar with techies, computers, scanners, printers etc. (my warranty period has expired too). Folks looking for HP Photosmart 8050 - its a nice printer while it works, but don't go for it, its a trouble in slightly longer term.

beware of defective paper-feed rollers

geeforce "geeforce", Amazon
2 April 2006
  • Summary: I like HP printers, but the paper-feed rollers have a defect so common that HP mails a kit free-of-charge to specifically address this problem: a plastic insert that goes in the paper tray, topped with a sandpaper-like material to coarsen the rollers. The kit works, but only temporarily. The paper feed errors returned a few months later, the kit no longer works, and HP will not do anything further once the printer's out of warranty.

JAMS! JAMS!

Timothy P. Backus "tbackus5", Amazon

  • Summary: I hate this printer. I hate this printer. All it does it jam and that is all it has ever done. It is a good piece of equipment if you don't actually use to print.

Good printer - for a short while - Beware of HP's India Connection!

Captain Classical, Amazon
2 April 2006
  • Summary: We've owned the 8050 for less than a year - using it mainly for occasional B&W printing. Recently, it died giving us an error message saying that the NEW ink cartridges I bought were "incompatible" - which of course was crazy since they were the same HP carts as before. I called the "help desk" and probably talked to India about 10 times with no help and seemingly no understanding on their part. But, outsourcing saves money, you know.

Printer ships without interface cable!!!!

Philip Logiudice, Amazon
30 January 2006
  • Summary: I can't believe you would ship a printer and the first thing the user guide says is to go out and buy a USB interface cable. Couyldn't you have warned me that I would need a cable? I have never experienced this with any printers I've purchased in the past. UNBELIEVABLE!

HP Photosmart 8050

Reviewer, CompareStorePrices
16 March 2006
  • Excerpt: I purchased my Photosmart 8050 printer in December 2005. Now that may seem a long time ago for a printer but I would add that Ive used it very very infrequently due to being away from home for long periods and now in September 2007 it will not start. There is power to it but no one is at home.

Juli ersteigert und über PayPal bezahlt - jedoch bis heute noch nicht erhalten.
