Canon LBP3000 printer problem - stuck at "Sending data to printer"

Hello,

I have a Canon LBP3000 laser printer connected to the computer, running F32, KDE Plasma.

It won’t print anything. I don’t really know what to look for to fix this, where to check, nothing, my understanding of printing under Fedora and Linux in general is far beyond my knowledge and understanding.

I guess some CUPS service is responsible for printing.

Under localhost:631/printers/LBP3000?which_jobs=all all jobs, so far it has only been test pages, are stuck at "Sending data to printer."

Any ideas on how to fix this?
