HP deskjet 2050 not connecting, not online

HP deskjet 2050

My HP deskjet 2050 just won't connect to the computer.  It shows in my Devices and Printers but with the troubleshoot icon attached to it.  I have unistalled it, reinstalled it, changed the cable for a brand new one, had HP doctor try to fix it, all to no avail. 

 

Is there any fix at all, or do I just really need junk it...

I found a fix for this issue.  I unistalled everything HP and reinstalled with a BASIC driver that I downloaded from HP.  Runs like a champ! 

 

It seems that all that fancy stuff they were adding by way of updates was getting in the way. 

 

Of course, I am using an older computer with Windows 7 still on it, so perhaps that has something to do with it, as well. 

 

Just happy I got it back online.  🙂
