Due to a gyro failure. (http://spaceflightnow.com/news/n0304/30hubblegyro/)

Hubble still has three functional gyros plus a reserve, but ground intervention is required to get it doing science operations again.

Hubble has recovered (http://www.newscientist.com/news/news.jsp?id=ns99993690), but now with only one spare gyro. Meanwhile, the next servicing mission isn't until November 2004, at the earliest.
