Foomatic Error in CUPS

We took a series of power hits since Hurricane Sandy that our UPS/surge wasn't able to handle.  Ever since, I've been getting this error in CUPS -

E [28/Nov/2012:11:33:39 -0500] PID 6077 (/usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip) stopped with status 3!
E [28/Nov/2012:11:33:44 -0500] [Job 67133] Job stopped due to filter errors.

The truly strange thing is that I can print jobs up to a certain size (we'll say about 25K).  Larger than that and it won't print.  Of course, that makes little to no sense.  My best guess is that it has something to do with pictures as no files with pictures will print (text generally does).

Totally new to this.  Any help, guesses, etc. would be appreciated!
