deskjet 1050 j410


   I recently bought and installed the HP Desket 1050 j410.  It was working for awhile (a couple of weeks), but now, my computer won't even recognize that I have the printer installed.  If I run the HP deskjet 1050 j410 software, it says connect the USB cable to the printer and computer.  I have done this and the HP software did not detected my printer.  I have also tried to run HP Scan and it works just fine.  What can I do to fix this?

Re: deskjet 1050 j410

I have exactly the same problem. At the screen it says connect the printer, i have it plugged in but nothing happens. Its done its alignment scans etc. The computer beeps to say its recognised somethings connected. I think it may have even set up some kind of device driver automatically but trying to instal it, theres no joy. Can't scan as it says nothings installed, can't print i have some pending. I hope someone answers your post mate.

Re: deskjet 1050 j410

try this:


go to start > control panel > printer folder


1. delete the icon of your printer

2. make sure that the usb cable is plugged-in to the computer

3. turn the printer off

4. turn on the printer

5. restart the computer


check again your folder and see if there would be a new icon for your printer
