from your printers folder go to the tool bar and open "tools" there is an option in the drop down menu thats "use printer off line" make sure that this is not checked.i have had this problem often when the printer gets shut down and the pc stays on.
if this is not the problem uninstall and reinstall the driver. the problem is between your pc and the printer or in the software.
