The HP LaserJet 3050 All-in-One Printer allows users to keep faxes and copies for future printing on the unit's built-in memory. This memory can fill up, however, preventing the printer from saving documents. In this case, a user can clear the memory in a few simple steps.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Press the "Menu" button. This is located to the left of the green "Enter" button.

  2. 2

    Press the right arrow button, located to the right of the green "Enter" button. The small display should now read "Fax functions."

  3. 3

    Press the "Enter" button.

  4. 4

    Press the right or left arrow button until the small display reads "Clear saved faxes." Push the "Enter" button.

  5. 5

    Press the green "Enter" button again when asked to confirm the memory reset.

Tips and warnings

  • Clearing your saved faxes will also delete any other files (e.g., scans and pictures) you have saved on the printer's memory.
  • Deleting your printer's memory will not affect any external memory cards (e.g., SD card) inserted into the printer.
  • This tutorial also works on the HP 3052, 3055, 3390 and 3392 printer models.
