    pixma ip660d printer won't print. I'm running an HP pavilion a1640n, XP pro. Suddenly my printer is offline. I updated the drivers, powered down and unplugged everything and restarted, deleted and reinstalled the printer. I even had my daughter connect her toshiba laptop to it and it won't print. What else can I try?

    I've deleted and reinstalled the printer with another usb cable, restarted the computer and it still won't print. It won't print from a command prompt either.

    At this point, I'm almost suspecting a hardware failure :(
