    Windows 10 / Printer not working


    My wife upgraded her Windows 7 laptop to Windows 10 about a month or so ago and everything has been fine until this past weekend when she tried to print. The printer was old so I gave it to my daughter and went to get my wife and I a new wireless printer. (HP Officejet Pro 8610). The printer is on the network and works fine with my daughters Windows 7 machine, our android phone and iphone and my Debian machine.
    On her laptop when I try to print from notepad I get "A StartDocPrinter call was not issued" and when I try to print from Wordpad I get "Could not start print job" and if I try to print from a browser I don't get any errors but nothing happens(no printer icon or printer action).
    I have tried to remove the printer, updating drivers, restarting print spooler, restarting laptop, used the "HP Print Doctor" software and everything else I know to try. If I use the HP software to print a diagnostic page, it prints fine. I have tried searching this issue without much success(other than outdated documents that aren't relevant to my problem.) Any and all information is much appreciated and thank you!
    Below is a link to a pic where I have printer status page open and trying to print.

    Thanks, but nothing applies as my other windows machine is able to print from printer with no problem. I do not have a password on the printer share while I try to solve issue.

    I had an issue the other day but my laser printer was displaying as 'off line' for the laptop. I could print from the desktop. The printer is plugged into the Linsky router. It turned out that the IP number from the laptop to the printer had not updated when I replaced the router during the winter.
    Once I changed the IP address in the laptop the printer went on line and was 'talking'. While searching out possible reasons I discovered that printer IP numbers can 'change' but in my case an old IP had been retained.
