HP all in one multifunction printer not printing officejet office jet 8600

Any thoughts on this:
HP all in one printer not printing from the windows XP PC it's connected to for the last few months at least/
It makes copies OK (son not completely frozen / not out of ink)
You CAN fax from the PC. the display on the printer says dialing.
The printer control panel in xp says it's ready. If you unplug the USB cable, the fax and printer entries say offline. then reconnect the printer, and the status for printer and fax say ready.
If you print to printer / send a test page from printer properties, the que in windows printer conrol panel says 1 then goes to 0. But printer makes no acknowledgement that a job was sent.
rebooted both printer and PC.
Fax port in windows printer properties says usb 3 and printer is using usb 1. I am going there in a little while to see if they should both be 1 or 3?
Any other ideas?
