Check your logfile for the printer daemon, you can try also to configure the spooling daemon to send you an e-mail wherever ther is a problem.
  The log file could be in /var/spool/lp/logs but could be somewhere else; check where it is left.
  If there is a device associated to your printer (even if it is a dummy device or the /dev/null device) check that the permissions allow everybody to read and write to it.
