XP printer failure

I have a curious problem when attempting to print to a Canon CP-200 printer. I installed the printer without any problems and the printer is listed and online. When I attempt to print a test page it goes into the print queue and says PRINTING but yet never does. I've tried printing from Notepad and a command line but still no luck. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling and may re-boots but still no luck. I installed the printer on a different PC and everything works fine. I'm using XP Pro and everything appears to be installed properly but it just doesn't printer. I've tried all available USB ports but still no luck. Any suggestions?

Problem solved. I un-checked the option for "Enable Bidirectional Support" under Printer->Properties->Ports. Strange, I've never had this happen before.
