@MrsJ119
Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.


Let's run the print and scan doctor utility from this link: https://support.hp.com/us-en/topic/printscandoctor and it should fix the issue for you.
If print and scan doctor does not fix the issue, then please uninstall the printer software completely following these steps:

  • Go to Control panel – Programs and feature – Select all the HP DeskJet printer entries and uninstall them.
  • Now go to Control panel – Devices and printer – Select all the printer entries and remove the device.
  • Then press the "windows key" + "r" to get the "Run" window open - Type "printui.exe /s" and press enter.
  • Under print server properties, go to drivers - remove any entry there as well.
  • Again, go to run window, type – “c:/programdata” – Go to Hewlett Packard folder, remove any printer related folders & files.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
