Yes, you said earlier; but can you print a document of your own?

First try failed. In the "Print" window there are the following printers listed :
 DeskJet 2600, HP_DeskJet_2600_series_C8A2E5, HP-DeskJet-2600-series, hpdeskjet2600all-in-one. First try was with the third listed. I moved to the second listed and printing was successful on a personal document. Is it possible to delete all printer names except the one  that worked?

That would be the best thing to do. 
I am guessing that only the working one is listed in HPLIP, so you can delete the others through System Settings/Printers via the system menu.

Further testing shows that only one of the printer descriptions does not work, namely the one that most accurately describes it, DeskJet 2620. Curious. Printing now successful thanks to your kind help. Many thanks.
