canon mp530 printer always on pause

I have a canon mp530 and a couple of weeks ago when I go to print it is always in pause mode and I have to uncheck it to get it to print.  the only difference is that I installed software for another printer ( a wireless one ) but made no changes to my canon mp530 - how do I get it out of constant pause mode?
