Printing problem

Hi folks,

Fedora Core 2
(upgrade from RH 8.0)
HPdeskjet 690C
KDE desktop
Pprinting had no problem before upgrade. After upgrade printing does not work.

Test performed as follows;

1) Text Dorcument - Simple Text Editor
File --> Print --> Printer Name
in the droplist window
Mail pdf file
Print to file (PDF)
Print to file (Postscript)
Send fo Fax

All were there as before upgrade.

Selected HP_deskjet_690C --> Print
No response. The printer did not print

2) OpenOffice Write Doc.
(OpenOffice 1.1.2)
K_Start --> OpenOffice.org_1.1.2 --> OpenOffice.org_Printer_Admin
ony Generic Printer (Default printer) was there

--> Properties -- under Command_tab -> lpr -P "HP_Deskjet_690C" --> OK --> Close

File --> Print -->
on Printer_Name droplist window
Generic printer
Both of them were there

--> sekected <HP_deskjet_690C> ---> OK
(Location HP_Deskjet_690C)
no response, the 'Print window' close. The printer did not print

--> Generic Printer --> OK
(Status Default printer)
the Print Window closed but no response. The printer did not print.

Neither the printer nor the Printer/Para-port has problem. This PC has another mobile HD running WinXP. Printing has no problem)

Kindly advise how to test the printer communcation and fix the problem
