New newbie problem: CUPS printing "job-stopped"

Another newbie problem here: I had bought a Canon PIXMA MP160 multi-function printer/scanner a couple weeks ago. I got the printer more or less working (sadly only capable of 600x600 resolution with the MP150 driver in CUPS/Gutenprint), and couldn't get the scanner working. Then my 6-year-old son decided to shove a piece of cardboard through the paper slot and it stopped working completely. I took the thing back, and the only thing the store would let me do without dropping more cash was to exchange it for the exact same model. I brought that home and tried it out.
It seemed to work, and then through trial and error I got the scanner part to work. But now, every time I try to print, nothing happens. CUPS reports "printing: job-stopped" and says the printer is "Ready". I've looked in various places online to find info. Apparently, this is a pretty common problem. But none of the suggestions I've tried work.
I'm using Debian Etch PowerPC GNU/Linux, and I've tried updating CUPSYS, Gutenprint, and Foomatic to the newest versions I can find in the Debian repositories (in Testing, not Unstable) as suggested in one forum post. I'm stumped and frustrated because I have to be able to print! Any ideas (besides throwing out either the printer or the OS - both of which I've considered lately)? Thanks!
