HP Laser printer hangs on cancel job #2954
Whenever I cancel a job, my printer wont print after that. Its really strange. I tried everything (lprm, purge the queue, restart printer, restart machine, restart cups) but the printer goes in some sort of hang stage even though there are no jobs. There are two lights on the printer (one green and other red). The red light keeps blinking for sometime indicating there is some sort of problem even after restarting the printer.
Normally printer goes two cycles when started. Whenever there is the problem with printing as above, it will also skips the second cycle.
After fews days it starts working again !
This happens only under Linux and not windows. I am using Ubuntu Hardy release.
Here is the kernel log when the problem starts

Here is the log when it is working fine
