I updated to Mac Catalina 10.15.7 and my HP Deskjet 2050 is no longer allowed to print

HP Recommended
HP Deskjet 2050
macOS 10.15 Catalina

My printer was working just fine yesterday, I've never had issues with it, but now since the update it's saying that "One or more components of HP printing software are missing or corrupted .The print job cannot be completed. To fix this situation, HP recommends reinstalling the print driver software". I checked the HP support website and it hasn't been helpful, does anyone  have a solution? I'm working from home and I have some important documents to print, this is very inconvenient. Is anyone else experiencing this?

@Crystalclear1, Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

There is no printer driver available for this model printer on the HP Support site to work on a macOS 10.15. It is not Airprint compatible too.

 

Let us install the printer using Apple Software Update:

  1. If your printer is connected to your Mac with a cable, disconnect the cable from your Mac. 

  2. Turn off your printer. 

  3. Get software updates for your Mac. Your Mac automatically downloads the latest software for most printers as part of these updates 

  4. Reconnect your printer to your Mac, if applicable. 

  5. Turn on your printer and wait for it to finish starting up. 

  6. Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Printers & Scanners. 

  7. Select your printer in the list of devices. 

  8. If your printer doesn't appear in the list of devices in Printers & Scanners preferences, click  +  at the bottom of the list, then choose the command to add a printer or scanner. 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.

@DebraGroninga, Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

Are you facing the same issue?

What model printer are you using?

Are you using macOS 10.15?

How is the printer connected to the mac?

 

Keep me posted.

I tried to make the connection using HP Smart software. It didn't work. Surprisingly, the software doesn't recognise the printer's connection to the Mac via the USB cable (a connection that does exist).
