Solaris10-Printer auto-retry error.

Hi Experts,
I have a Solaris 10 server, V490 model.
I have configured a dummy printer to satisfy the application requirment and directed all the prints to /dev/null. Actually the prints are not required.This means there should be no jobs in the queue,even if you give job. this was working fine till recently.
Suddenly, i observed the below error and the jobs are visible in the queue,which are supposed to be nullified.
"printer revnull waiting for auto-retry. available.
        exec exit fault
revnull-39658           aisdba             359   Apr 20 16:42
revnull-39659           root                72   Apr 20 16:43
revnull-39698           aisdba          493948   Apr 21 09:37
Any Expert advise to fix this?

Well, the obvious answer would be to shut down the printer service, go into the queue in /var/spool/lp and clear out the queued
files. It sounds to me like there was a transient error that caused the jobs to spool, and whatever the print system needs from the
device /dev/null isn't giving it.
