weird hp printer, prints nothing - not hardware

hey there,
i have an hp psc 1315 all in one. does great under ubuntu 5.10
but heres the deal.
i recently changed the settings in the setup to use just the black cartridge (greyscale) and it did fine for a while. But its stopped printing on command now. Weird. if i cycle power to the printer, it prints out a black and white test page that looks fine. however if i try to print something from gedit or some other app. the printer looks just like its printing as ususal, but no ink is comming out. if i use the copy function from the printer, it works just fine.

anyone seen this?
