What type of printer are you using, and how it connected to the HP box.
if it is a network printer, have a look at http:Q_23842709.html , make sure you can ping/telnet to the printer.
If it is a printer attached to a printer server (another machine), you need to check to make sure the client has permissions to print.
If all of them looks ok, try to re-create the queue. (disable the old one,  delete it and delete all the old job,
then create a new queue use the same name).

Thank you, it is a network printer.  I could ping IP address assigned to the printer with no problem.  I had verified permission was not the problem, I am going to delete the printer and recreate one as you suggested and I will keep you posted.
