Printer Error

OfficeJet Pro 7740
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

When I send document to printer I get "Printer Error" message.  I have uninstalled following all the steps in other solutions and reinstalled and still have the same message.  Issue started after a power surge yesterday afternoon.  I can print from IPad but not form laptop. Printer will print internal test.  HP Doc says it cannot identify the error, nor can Windows Troubleshooting.

I ended up paying for technical support to fix the issue.  I couldn't completely follow the steps taken to solve the issue, but it has been resolved.
