Thumbs up Printer Problem

I have a cannon BJC- 250 Attached to my main computer a shared by a second computer, I was working o.k on both computers today I had a job to print from my second computer but it would not print I only got an error message ( I don't remember what the message says but it refer to spool or spinder not spinning ) the printer work fine on my main computer.
I deleted it from the second computer and tried to reinstall it but without any success ( it suppose to be plug and play but the computer fail to detect it).
Do anyone have any idea how to reinstall the Printer.?
