Installation of Big Sur prevents printing on 8600 Plus All in One Printer

HP Recommended
Big Sur, Apple's most recent operating system
I’m writing to the support community as well as you to share my experience with an Apple representative at AppleCare just now.  He did his best to assist me and we were not successful.  He indicated that in the early days of offering Big Sur, the latest operating system, there were many calls re printing problems though that’s abated.  I’ll keep trying for a solution for my 8600 Office Jet +.   Hope someone in our user community will offer advice based on his/her success.

I have the same problem in a brand new 13" MBP that Catalina and then upgraded to Big Sur. I used, from 11/12/2020, to be able to get all features like scan and fax features since Apple's default AirPrint driver was very limited. However, HP printer works via AirPrint. But its USB doesn't want to print, but can scan. We need better USB drivers! 😞
