  • Can a HP 121 cartridge be used in a HP Deskjet 3050A printer?

    Correct cartridges for Deskjet 3050A

    The HP 121 cartridge is not valid for use in the UK version of the HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One printer. This would indicate that your printer was not purchased in the UK. If this is the case, none of the ink cartridges we supply will be compatible as we only supply cartridges for use in UK printer models. Please contact HP directly as they might be able to advise you how to proceed.

  • How do I replace ink in the Deskjet 3050A and which is the best ink to buy?

    Buying HP 3050A ink cartridges

    Your HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One printer manual should have instructions on how to replace the ink cartridges. If not, please contact HP directly to ask for technical support. The best ink to buy for your Deskjet 3050A depends on the nature of your printing. For example, if you want the best print quality and reliability you can't go far wrong ordering the genuine HP Deskjet 3050A ink cartridges. They're available in HP 301 standard capacity cartridges and HP 301XL high capacity cartridges for black and colour. High capacity 301XL cartridges contain more ink and produce a lower cost-per-print so if you use up a lot of ink they are the best choice. If you want the cheapest cartridges and aren't concerned with buying HP branded ink you should consider our high quality compatible HP Deskjet 3050A ink cartridges which are sold at a lower price and work equally well within the printer.

  • I just need colour ink for my HP Deskjet 3050A printer as I have masses of black ink already. Can I buy it separately please?

    Colour ink for Deskjet 3050A

    Yes, we sell single packs of the Deskjet 3050A tri-colour ink cartridges as well as the multipacks which have both black and colour ink. You can use either the HP 301 tri-colour ink cartridge or the HP 301XL high capacity tri-colour ink cartridge in the HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One printer. Both of these cartridges are available as genuine HP products or we have a compatible HP 301XL tri-colour cartridge which is made by a third-party manufacturer as a cheaper alternative. Please see the links below for the single colour cartridges that work in the Deskjet 3050A printer:

  • I've just fitted an HP 301 cartridge into my all-in-one printer HP 3050A and it says "incompatble cartridge". The printer was purchased overseas and until now used has used HP 122 cartridges (CH561H) whilst in the Middle East. I've now returned to the UK and am trying to install a HP301 CH561E cartridge, since the HP 122 cartridge doesn't exist in the UK. Can you please help? Thanks.

    Cartridge numbers for HP 3050A printer

    Unfortunately, because your HP Deskjet 3050A printer was puchased outside of the UK, it won't accept the HP 301 cartridges which will only work if your Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One printer was purchased in the UK. It might be possible for HP to change the region code on your printer so that it can accept the UK cartridge numbers (HP 301 / 301XL) that we supply. However, only HP are able to offer this service so you'd need to contact them directly for further assistance on this matter.

HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One Printer Review

Expert review of the HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One printer 17 January 2013

Our Verdict:

The HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One, aka the CR231B, is a 3-in-1 printer allowing you to print, copy and scan. Designed for home use, this printer would definitely struggle handling the needs of a small business, thanks to the small paper tray and lack of duplexer. The printer does, however, come with some excellent features including HP's 'e-print' technology, allowing you to connect to the printer from anywhere in the world using e-mail or your smart phone.

Design

Featuring a 5 cm mono display, the HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One allows you to control a number of functions directly from the printer. Paper capacity is rather limited on this device with only 60 sheets, although its connectivity tools, including WiFi and the previously mentioned “e-print" technologies are some of the best on the market. Surprisingly there is no memory card support, although being able to print direct from smart phones and cameras makes up for that.

Advantages

For a home device the HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One is the perfect size (249 x 427 x 406 mm), plus its WiFi connectivity means it can be tucked away, without the need for cumbersome wires. In terms of print quality, text comes out looking crisp and clear, while colour printing is more than acceptable for a multi-functional device in this price range.

Disadvantages

Where this printer really falls short, is its potential to be used by a small business or home business user; the HP Deskjet 3050A e-All-in-One is claimed to be able to handle small business needs, yet it has very limited paper capacity, no duplex printing and print speeds are average.
