Default HP laserjet suddenly offline

All of a sudden my Color Laserjet 2605 fails to print.

It looks ready — even says so in the small window — but nothing happens. If I look at the print status window I see an unfamiliar circular yellow icon over the printer icon and two text messages that say “Printer offline.”

It is certainly not literally offline — it just went through one of its regular cleaning cycles.

I shut it down and then restarted it. Everything looks normal, but the thing won’t print.

I went to the HP support site thinking I would replace the driver, and spent 20 minutes in circular-logic hell without being able to download it. (They said it is usually updated automatically by Apple, but I was thinking that might be the problem, not the solution.)

Any suggestions?
