    Its not just the icon m8,the printer was'nt recognised by the computer so it would'nt print owt,allthough we've had the printer for 3 years without probs until now .

    Have you uninstalled the printer program, rebooted your puter, reinstall the program, when asked to insert the usb put it in a different usb port.

    hp are renowned for having problems on install of their devices on usb - rather than trying another lead try the usb socket next to it
    some computers have a fast usb and standard usb socket next to each other so it may be that this is preventing the install - strangely enough once installed you can use the other socket!! think this will resolve your issues..
