Sounds like there might be a CUPS system on the network which is
advertising bad queues, or else the printer cache is upset.

Try:

cupsctl --no-remote-printers
service cups stop
rm -f /var/cache/cups/printers.cache
service cups start

Wait for a minute or two. Do the queues show now?

How about after 'cupsctl --remote-printers'?

Tim.
