I'm sure there's a simple answer to this persistent problem and I hope that someone can enlighten me with their knowledge.
Last week, my computer (running windows xp) suddenly stopped communicating with my printer (hp laserjet 4L) after I attempted to print an e-mail through netscape.
The printer status line next to the document name reads "offline...printing," though the printer is definitely online.
I cannot print from any program, nor from a command prompt.
I have run through all of the troubleshooting functions -- uninstalling/reinstalling the printer, printer driver, port, etc.
The printer works just fine, as I can print from another computer.
Is it possible that the print spooler is jammed (can this happen)? If so, how does one fix the problem? Or, is there another problem?
Thanks for any enlightenment you can provide!
