Printer problem

I'm running Kubuntu 7.10. For some reason every time I turn on my Epson Photo Smart 870 printer, it starts printing out reams of what looks like computer code. I have to physically turn the thing off. I've checked "Stop Printer" and "Disable Job Spooling" in Settings, but it doesn't seem to make any difference once I turn the printer back on. Is there a Konsole command or something I could use to fix this? Thanks.

Don't use Kubuntu but it probably uses cups. 2 ways to get at the printer;

1. http://localhost:631 login as root and then select jobs and delete them

2. On Kicker (K) go to system select printers and jobs and kill the jobs.
