My HP 1020 Laserjet doesn`t work with cups

I have a problem with my hp 1020m printer. I have kubuntu 7.04 installed on my pc (I`m a linux beginner) and I was using this printer with cups with no problems until suddenly, it doesn`t work, the cups queue appears on screen for a few secconds and then it desappears without any accion on the printer.
I hope you to understand my poor English.
Thank you in advance.

I have a similar problem with my printer. When you print and nothing comes out try restarting cups:

/etc/init.d/cups restart
See if this helps....

Thank you for your reply. I have done wath you said , I typed your instruction but with "cupsys" instead of "cups" because it didn`t recognized it. The printer doesn`t work.
I also tried to remove all cups packages and reinstall it, but the package manager doesnīt let me install cupsys-pt.
Can you help me?
I donīt know what to do.
Much tanks.
