You say its still working OK under Vista - please check. Are you dual booting (grub) or loading ubuntu thru Vista (wubi).

daniel;
Please do not start a new thread for a topic already under discussion. In this case, you had not responded to the help being offered in the earlier thread.

I have merged the two threads.

As a minimum, try the suggestions given by me and by XavierP.

Good luck

Please confirm the HP1020 is still working under Vista on the SAME computer.

OK - if you´re not being facetious it looks like you have a hardware problem you need to resolve under Vista before tackling the Ubuntu install.

Believe me, I am only being candid, and somewhat amused how something can be working one minute, and not the next. Like when I told the doctor that I never had this before, and he replied by saying, you got it now.

This is probably an inane question, but could the malfunction have anything to do with the Ubuntu installation?

Thanks

Very unlikely - ubuntu should have detected it immediately thru HPLIP which is part of the base install. The intermittent detection problems you mention suggests a cable problem (hopefully)!. Try using another USB port followed up with a new cable if that does´nt work.

If the printer is shot check that any replacement will work under linux http://openprinting.org/printer_list.cgi (a HP1020 is´nt worth repairing).

While in Vista, I removed the power cable from the printer, then put it back in. The printer is now printing in Vista. I will try Ubuntu again.

Went back to Ubuntu. The printer was not detected.
Went to Vista and tried to print. The printer would not print.

Any ideas why the printer will print after turning power on and off.

No idea but there have been similar reports involving certain brands of network card. It would appear that windows does "something" to certain pieces of hardware that Linux does not like, so when a distro is confronted with that awkwardly configured hardware, it either fails to detect it or returns it to default settings, which then makes windows pissed off, too. It would be weird, though, if this were really the case. HP is quite a respected name when it comes to printing on Linux.

Try removing (the Mark for Complete Removal option) and then reinstalling the hplip package under SYSTEM > ADMINISTRATION > SYNAPTIC PACKAGE MANAGER. Then power off the HP1020, reboot ubuntu and, when it is up. power up the printer.

Do you get a new hardware / printer message?
