After years of effortless wireless printing, I can no longer print.  The System Preference settings are fine, specifying the printer as HP psc 1300 series. Mountain Lion tells me only that "PRINT SERVICE IS NOT AVAILABLE!" or "The printer is not connected."


The Console says:

10/10/12 5:26:13.575 PM TextEdit[4251]: Printing from application: com.apple.TextEdit, to printer: Generic PostScript Printer, with the simple dialog.

com.apple.message.domain: com.apple.printing.printdialog.printdialogtype

com.apple.message.result: success

com.apple.message.signature: Simple dialog

com.apple.message.signature2: com.apple.TextEdit

com.apple.message.signature3: Generic PostScript Printer



I have tried everything except purchase a new printer. Is that what I have to do?


Many thanks for your thoughts.....
