Try downloading the HP Print Diagnostic Utility and running it to check for problems:

If you are using XP, try going to the 'Printer & Fax ' section on desktop, start.
Uninstalling the printer, then reinstalling it.

You could also try the uninstall in control panel.

Restart your system. That usually clears any print cancelling problems for me.

If xp,type into run services.msc and
restart the print spooler service.
