HP C5180 not printing but copies????

My printer copies for us but does not print. I think it has something to do with out 3 year old pushing buttons but I can't figure out what he did. In the properties it says it is offline even when it is powered up.

    Tried printing a 10cmx15cm photo but will not print, it will print diagnostic page.

    if test page is asked it just sits in the queue.

    tried to delete photo print and it just sits there saying "deleting", even rebooting doesn't solve the problem

These are the steps for windowsxp
For windowsVista after control panel go to Printer or hardware and sounds to go to printers

First check the printer icon. ( Make sure the printer is turned on during this process)
Go to Start> Control Panel (or setup then contro panel) and then go to Printer and faxes (or printers and other hardware)
And check that the printer Photosmart C5100Series has a check mark.
If not right click on the same and left click on Set printer as default.
Next make sure the printer icon says 0Ready.
If not right click on top of the Photosmart C5100Series icon and left click on Clear all documents (untill it says 0ready)
If not try rebooting you computer

then try printing any documents

Good Luck

    First troubleshooting step: Open Printers and Faxes in Control Panel. Highlight the printer, then select File in the toolbar and deselect "Use Printer Offline" if it is selected.
