Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Try a reset of the printer. Unplug the printer from the mains and the computer. Wait about 10-20mins and replug. This is a hard reset and should bring the printer back to manufacture standards.
Should that not work, try reinstalling the software. Uninstall the older software and reinstall from your install CD. Make sure the printer is not plugged into PC before installation. Plug it in only when instructed to do so in the installer.

Have you unplugged it from your computer and the wall for more than 5 minutes? If not try that first. There may be something wrong with the printers boot sequence and sometimes all it needs is a fresh start. Try starting it while it is unplugged, I know it won't show you it's doing anything, but it should drain any residual power.
