I have documents stuck in queue. Or I get an error message and document sent to printer. The copier on printer works fine. There are no error messages on the all in one. It seems that the printer and lap top do not see ech other. Ran HP printer diagnostics tool and it says the printer is set to sun. No errors. It has worked in the past. I use with lap top which gets unplugged and plugged in many many times.I have vista home edition.

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
There may be many aspects of this issue, but its good to see that HP have written a nice article about this issue. I've attached the link below. Kindly read it throughly and I'm sure that one of the solution will definitely work for.
If you are having any trouble/questions, don't hesitate to ask. I'm here to help.
Does it print from any other program? (e.g. Notepad, MS Word etc)
Are you receiving any error messages? are the documents being passed to the printer queue? (if the printer icon is showing, you can check this by double clicking it - most printers will show the queue upon double clicking the tray icon)
