Have hp psc 1310 series printer. Will not print . Status error

Customer Question

Have hp psc 1310 series printer. Will not print . Status error message says "off Line".
Had previously been printing flawlessly, but suddenly after printing a document, printer would not stop printing until I pulled power. Then found out system had 12 docs in the que line. I was able to delete all 12 and ready to print when I saw the "status" read "off Line" and will not print. Copier works great, printer does not print at all
