"Printing - waiting for printer to become available

Every time I try to print iMac "Printing - Waiting for printer to become available" message, and it just stalls there.  I've tried everything.  Uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers and printer.  Resetting the printer.  Restarting the computer.  Updated the software and firmware.  And lots of other things.  Everything I could find online to fix this problem didn't work.  I am able to print a  "Printer Status Report" so it is connected to the computer but I can't print anything else.

Sorry the rest of the fix is make sure you select the proper iOS - the site defaults to OS 10.15.  Download and install the new drivers and follow the prompts.  When asked if you want to use the Generic or HP drivers select HP.  To scan now I use the Image Capture application.
