I may be asking the obvious have you edited /etc/cupsd.conf and search 
for the line *LogLevel* and *change* it to from warn to  debug. *then 
*view your error logs run command  tail -f  /var/*log*/*cups*/error_log 
file .

Thus all our w/stations log level from default to something that 
reported somethiny more useful for debugging.
