Why my printer is not responding?

When I try to print from my Canon i560 printer, “Printer not responding” message displays on the screen. I don’t understand suddenly what happened with my printer. I have also checked port lpt1 and it is fine. In the Device Manager, there is not any printing device displaying. When I open “Printers and Fax” I Control Panel, my Canon printer is checked as the default printer. Please help me to resolve this dilemma!
