I've just been to the HP website, and what a nightmare, loads of drivel and no cable description so here goes.

Its most likely a USB A-B cable, look at the usb connection on your printer, does it look like a funny square shape with two of the corners cut off, if so thats the man.

Here's a picture on ebay; - Item number: 280649225311.

If both ends are the same as the back or your pc, rectangular, then its a USB A - A.

There is only one type USB printer cable. There are several other types of USB, one that plugs into a phone for example, another style for camera or blood pressure monitor and so forth ... but a USB printer cable is a USB printer cable. If there is a question, I suggest you go to a store that sells HP printer products and confirm with the salesman that the printer cable you have selected will plug into your HP 1050.

Thanks for your question @

    HP Deskjet 930C USB connection

    Yes but you may have to re-install the software for the camera. If so,
    Normal 0 Try disconnecting the Camera from the USB port and reinstall the CD software program. When the program asks you to connect the camera to the USB port, do so and it should work.
    Hope this helps. Bud

    Cord to hookup printer

    I don't think your printer has USB capabilities.

    You need a USB to Centronics Printer Cable.
