HP Deskjet suddenly not working

https://bbs.archlinux.org – I have an HP Desktop 3050A that was working fine via hplip for about a day.  It hasn't worked since and I'm entirely at a loss as to why.  It seems to be a CUPS and/or hplip issue, since I can scan with it perfectly fine.  However, when I try to print, I get an error, and printer state flips to 'Stopped - /usr/lib/cups/backend/hp failed'.I've tried removing and setting it up again, but I have the same issue, I've tried it with and without avahi daemon, reinstalling/restarting cupsd, reinstalling hplip, but nothing seems to help me. the_nate (HowTos)
