Customer Question

On Thursday I upgraded my computer to Windows 10 and since then I am unable to do any printing from my HP Deskjet 2050 J510 series. The printer says there is an error and one of the documents in the line for printing has a message saying "deleting" of which I can't remove. How can I get my printer working please? Thanks, CreswellXXX

As the first step, can you please remove the power to the printer so it is powered off, then power off your computer.
Then wait 10 minutes and power on the printer.
Then power on the computer and try then to print.
Let me know the results please

Hi Richard,

I have done what you advised, but it makes no difference. Still cannot print. The message says "Printer is in an error state".

Can you press the magnyfying glass and then type in device and click on Devices and Printers.
In this window, does your printer appear once? Or multiple times?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Where can I locate the 'Magnifying Glass' please?

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Its at the bottom left of the screen now, to the right of the windows logo.
Its the new icon that appeared with Windows 10
I can see you are a first time user to the site. What we do here is either a question and answer type of conversation or remote support where I would actually connect to the computer and have a look and attempt to fix the problem for you.
Remote support can save a lot of time if you are not comfortable performing repairs yourself. Sometimes even with instructions you can make a mistake and make things worse.
I will send an offer through for remote support and should you accept I will connect and see what is going on and fix the issue. Otherwise we can continue to talk like this but I will need to ask a number of other questions and try and walk you through some steps.
Both options are 100% guaranteed by the way. Remote is just quicker and avoids the risk of you making a mistake and doing something wrong.
If you want remote click get extra help. If not simply reply to me.
Thanks,
Richard
