Currently Being ModeratedRe: after installing 10.6.8, printer goes to pause mode, reinstalling printer doesn't change anything.Jul 7, 2011 2:38 PM (in response to Robert Smueles)
The 10.6.8 update changed a number of printer backend services. For many brands of printer this has stopped them from printing, although usually there is an error message associated with the print job rather than the queue simply pausing.
You can check if you are getting an error by selecting the paused job in the print queue and pressing the blue Job Info button. If there is no mention of a backend failure then you may be able to get your printer working again by simply opening Print & Fax, selecting the HP printer and presssing the minus button under the list to remove the printer. Then click the plus button to add the printer again.
If selecting the Job Info button for the paused print job does reveal that there has been some sort of backend failure then have a look at this thread. There is a lot of information to go through but there are responses with links to scripts that can recover your previous 10.6.7 backend services, assuming you are using Time Machine.

10.6.8 Supplemental Update didn't fix my networked hp (running under cups on a linux box)
didn't fix the optical sound problem either:-\
