Hello Bernard! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer / printer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.I'm sorry about the issue. Unfortunately, like many other manufacturers, HP does not support / provide drivers for newer Mac OS X versions for older printer/product models. Reference:http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/swdHome?sp4ts.oid=20531&ac.admitted=1405530816845.876444892.492883150However, there is a workaround. Please try the following steps in order:
1. Please disconnect the HP printer USB cable from the computer for now.2. Go to the Apple logo / menu, then System Preferences..., then Print & Fax (or Print & Scan), and delete/remove any printer you don't use/need there, if any. (select the printer you do not want, then click on the - (minus) button to delete it.)3. Go to the Apple logo / menu > System Preferences… > Security & Privacy > General tab, then click on the lock icon at the bottom left, then unlock, then select the Anywhere option.4. Download and install the Gutenprint driver file gutenprint-5.2.10a.dmg at the website below:http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/MacOSX.phphttp://sourceforge.net/projects/gimp-print/files/gutenprint-5.2/5.2.10/gutenprint-5.2.10a.dmg/download5. After installing the above Gutenprint printer drive, go to the Apple logo / menu, then System Preferences..., then Print & Fax (or Print & Scan), then click on the + (plus) button, and it should detect your printer and you can add it. Note, it will use the gutenprint driver for the printer.
