      If you can’t delete the printer, then login to http://www.hpsmart.com and from there you can remove the printer from your account. And then come back to the computer and Add new printer again. It will work, if not please reply.

      Hi John
      See, if it’s not working for you, then try to update the drivers for your printer. You can download the drivers and then try to print again. If you face any error please let us know.
