Printer no longer works :(

We have a HP psc 2210 all in one, which has decided it no longer wants to print. It was working fine before but now nothing. I have installed the latest drivers that I could find, tried a different usb port, reinstalled the drivers, etc. and the computer recognizes it as being there. The only sign of an error on the printer itself is that the date/time shows up as jan 0 00:00, and the fact it won't print. I'm running vista sp1.

Have you tried a different cable? And have you tried it on a different PC?

Have you updated anything on your machine that could have broken the drivers?

How do you set the printer's time/date? From the panel on the printer itself? If it reset to 0, it almost sounds like the control board might have croaked.

I don't have an extra PC really handy to try it with. As far as date/time I think it set itself. Just tried a new cable and still nope.
