HP Laserjet 1020 not printing

  1. My Laserjet 1020 was working fine but is now not printing on my desktop - Windows XP operating system. Only change that has been made is to change the printer cartridge from colour to black. I have tried deleting the printer and then reinstalling it. The install works fine and the printer is recognised and installed on the computer. However when you print a test page, or a page from anywhere for that matter, the print is sent to the queue but fails to print. It is as if the print command is not getting out of the USB port down to the printer. I have tried different USB ports on the computer but still no print. Any ideas?

    (I have tried the printer on my laptop, also Windows xp OS, and it installs and prints without any trouble.)
