Welcome to Bleeping Computer.


Have you tried uninstalling the printer and then reinstalling with Windows 10 drivers from HP?

Hello and welcome:


EDIT:  ^^^ Yep, that was on my list... See below.  You beat me to it ^^^


For starters, it would help to know the exact model number of the HP printer (so that we can look up drivers, support documents, etc.).


Next: it would help to know what you have already tried -- for example, did you try to fully uninstall and reinstall the drivers/software?  other fixes?


If you have a thread at another forum, it would help to have a link to that...


Next: it would help to know if the printer is still under warranty (just in case you end up needing to contact HP support)?


Next: it would (eventually) help to know how you connect the computer to the printer (local (USB), network (ethernet) or network (wifi))?


Next, just for troubleshooting purposes: are there other computers in the same household that still print to the HP without problems?
