Try switch of computer and printer if not in printer list of printers. Unplug usb cable and start computer without computer connected. Them switch off computer again and plug in usb cable and then restart and after started switch on printer and Windows should find printer as a new connection and then you may need your driver disc to reset up.

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 ;)

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.
