Use HP Print and Scan Doctor to fix this issue.

Download HP Print and Scan Doctor.

  1. Run HPPSdr.exe from the download location on your computer.

  2. Once HP Print and Scan Doctor opens, click Start, and then select your printer.

    • If your printer in not in the list, turn it off and on, and then click Retry.

    • If there is a connection problem, follow the instructions in HP Print and Scan Doctor.

  3. If a screen prompts you to turn on printer updates, click Yes.

  4. If a screen prompts you to make your printer the default printer, click Yes.

  5. Try to print.

I hope that helps.

If this helps, please mark the public post as an accepted solution so that it benefits several others.

I have the same problem. My printer is Officejet 6950. I suddenly found that I got an error message when trying to print and opened the troubleshooter. I followed all the instructions and then tried to reinstall the printer software but got error code 2753. I went through all the different "solutions" and diagnostics but nothing has worked. I tried the solution above, that failed. I downloaded all the utility programs and went through the exhausting number of steps - all those failed too.

I tried the virtual assistant - that was a load of rubbish. The printer will print a test page and HP Smart diagnostic tool does not find any fault. What do I do now - buy a Canon printer?

 

Oh by the way - the link to the drivers offered in the solution returns error code 404 NOT FOUND - wonderful.
