Do the following:
Try a different usb cable.
Plug the cable into a different USB port.
Try disconnecting printer power cable for ten minutes.
Unplug computer power cord for ten minutes and restart.
Reinstall printer drivers.
If that all did not work, test the printer on a different computer, to find out if it is faulty or not.

I had this problem with a Canon IP5200R connecting to a Mac Book Pro running Leopard. I had setup the printer as per instructions using the setup utility, could print a test page using the utils but could not print from an app.
My solution was to delete the printer (System Prefs > Print & Fax) listed in the system preferences and then re-add by clicking the '+' in the pref panel, then selecting 'More Printers' from the popup window. If you have the printer connected to the network correctly it should show up and you can simply re-add it. My printing now works correctly.

I had the same problem. I had moved my printer and when I hooked it all back up, there was an annoying clicking sound, the "in use/memory" light was flashing and there was no communication with my pc.
This is a tad embarassing, but if it helps someone, so be it lol. I had plugged everything in without looking.... my usb cable was plugged into the phone jack >.<.
Check all your connections.... then check them again ;)

1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal.
