my printer inexplicably stopped working - is it broken?
OK, I have an HP LaserJet 4000 series printer that I use when I'm at my rental house. It had been working perfectly... until today. It would not print anything, and after a few minutes my computer would give an "error printing the document" message as if the printer was disconnected. I don't think it's a configuration problem because I did not change any settings recently. My landlady's daughters just came home from college, but I think it's extremely unlikely that they would tamper with my stuff.

The printer did display "data received" a few times, so I don't think it's a connection problem either. Is it possible that my printer is dead? The thing is pretty old, mind you.
