I've run into a somewhat strange problem with printing. The printer is "ready", but there's still an error, so documents are queuing up.
So here's my code:

I've used the same code for at least 1 year without problems, so there's no doubt in my mind it's the printer causing this, is there any way to avoid getting this freeze?
I know a quick solution is to reconnect the printer and then all is good, but that doesn't cut it really..

Edit: notepad also freezes when trying to print to this printer.. so java is not the problem. anyway, feel free to add some knowledge
