Create an executable script, say  
containing just the following 4 lines:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
system ("grep \"Job $jid\" /var/log/cups/error_log.O | grep -v 'Set job-printer-state-message to' > /tmp/temp.txt");
system ("grep \"Job $jid\" /var/log/cups/error_log | grep -v 'Set job-printer-state-message to' >> /tmp/temp.txt");

Then execute
cupsctl —debug-logging
print your problem file and remember the job ID
after the print has finished, execute the script

cups-joblog xxxxx

where xxxxx is the numeric job ID as remembered.

Then post the file /tmp&temp.txt to the list, so that we can see what has happened.
