Canoni560 Printer won't unpause

I've recently switched over to Linux full time for my desktop and laptop, but I can't figure this one out. I have a Canon i560 and it recently stopped working while I was trying to print from OpenOffice.

I had my Canon i560 working and last night when trying to print from OpenOffice I found out it no longer works.

I would try to print and the job would simply disappear, but when I'd print a test page from the printer config app it would work just fine. I have tried restarting cupsys, and even rebooting and changing the usb port (the printer shows up fine via lsusb). I've also uninstalled-reinstalled but it doesn't make a difference.

Now when I print it shows up in the queue, but the printer says "printer paused" attempting to unpause in the default print management gui will unpause the printer, then when it tries to process the queue, it pauses itself.

Every time I attempt to unpause the printer /var/log/cups/error_log looks like:
D [28/Apr/2005:14:44:08 -0400] [Job 1] 0 %%Trailer

The lines
D [28/Apr/2005:14:44:11 -0400] ReadClient: 4 POST / HTTP/1.1
D [28/Apr/2005:14:44:11 -0400] ProcessIPPRequest: 4 status_code=0

repeat many times. StopJob: printer state is 5 seems to be the key line there.

Checking the state via lpc shows that printing is disabled:
lpc> status
        printer is on device 'usb' speed -1
        queuing is enabled
        printing is disabled
        no entries
        daemon present
If anybody knows what Printer State 5 is, or what I should do if I want to try starting from scratch (uninstall/reinstall all printing stuff) I'd really appreciate your help.
