Deskjet 3050A not printing

Deskjet 3050A J661g
macOS 10.12 Sierra

My printer will not print. I have tried wirelessly, connected through USB, resetting, etc. Even trying to pring an alignment page, it just shows "Printing alignment page..." on the display and does nothing.

Superb description and stupendous diagnosis of the issue before posting. Kudos to you for that. I take it as a privilege to share this platform with you. 🙂

For better clarity and to assist you further I would require more information regarding this:

If the copy fails. The printer has a hardware issue and needs to be replaced by contacting HP phone support.
