If you still have the original CD, uninstall the software and then reinstall the software and the driver. If you don't have the CD you can get one from HP's website or you can download the software and drivers directly from the website. 
Try this link: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=303753&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&submit.y=7&submit.x=10&lang=en&cc=us

Then select your operating system and your options will be listed on the following page.
I hope this was helpful.

How do i fix HP 1020 idle status with mc book pro?


It is not the printer, this is a MacBook issue. Most people just turn off the printer and turn it back on to print.

My HP 5850 inkjet has been idle for about four years. I downloaded the drivers for it tonight and attempted a test print and received no response from the unit. Any ideas what could be wrong?


If the printer appears to print but there is no print or images on the paper then most likely the cause is the print head nozzles are blocked with dried ink and inserting new ink cartridges won't fix this problem. You need a new print head.
Print heads are not cheap, you may be better putting your money towards a new printer.

My printer status is Idle. How do I fix this


Hi there
You can try see if this may do it.

Go to Start / Run and type in "services.msc" without quotation marks, then press Enter or click OK.

In the window that opens (Services) look for "Print Spooler" on the right

Right-click "Print Spooler" and select "Properties".

Click on the "Recovery" tab and change all 3 drop-down boxes to "Restart The Service".

Make sure the 2 text boxes underneath say "1" in them.

Click Ok until you are back at the Services window, close it and you're good to go.

Go back into the properties of the "Print Spooler" tab and be sure to click Start to restart the Print Spooler service and it will restart the service immediately.

The Print spooler depends on the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service. Is this service disabled? Go to services.msc look for RPC. Check state: Automatic

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

My printer is in idle mode and will not print. How do I fix or change idle mode so it could print?



I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Why is my printer showing a idle status and not printing?


Hello,

I believe the printer is connected via USB.
Check in device manager if the LJ 1020 printer is listed.
If yes, go to the driver properties > ports tab and Select the appropriate port for the printer

Alternatively, uninstall the full software and reinstall it again from

AN IDLE PRINTER


Some subtle meaning here perhaps generated by the printer software.
Check out the term in Windows help, but you may have to go to Canon support.
