I'm having replication problems that appear to be related to a lingering object - a printer I removed physically from our network. I have tried running repadmin but just can't seem to get the syntax correct. Need some guidance please.

I assume you are attempting this:
http://technet2.microsoft.com/windowsserver/en/library/fd758463-dd8c-4b6e-a26d-643912b013411033.mspx?
mfr=true

The syntax would be:
repadmin /removelingeringobjects ServerName ServerGUID DirectoryPartition /advisory_mode

Use this to find the DC guid: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/224544
The DirectoryPartition would be the domain partition as printer objects are sub-objects of computer objects.
Thus:  DC=yourdomain,DC=com
The "/advisory_mode" just lets you see the changes but won't perform the action.

The whole thing would be:
repadmin /removelingeringobjects yourDCname e99e82d5-deed-11d2-b15c-00c04f5cb503
 dc=yourdomain,dc=com /advisory_mode

the above example just has a sample guid.
