    USB: Printer Not Ready


    mdk10CE
    kernel: 2.6.3-4mdk
    HP Photosmart 7760 -and- HP Deskjet5550 USB printers, (not simultaneously).
    Install 'new' printer with or without others installed.
    Print OK from Test Page and program.
    Switch off printer at its power button.
    Print request wakes up printer and again prints OK.

    Unplug USB cable or power printer off from mains socket.
    Will not print at all even after reboot with printer powered up and USB cbale connected.
    lpq reports "printer not ready".

    Only option is to remove and (re)install printer.
    Words of wisdom needed. :(

    Try reinstalling. This has happened to me before.

    Did that, but thanks. Also tried 'upgrading' to MDK10.1 but get other problems here.
