Did you had the driver already on your server for other printers and
just assigned it to a new one? Or did you uploaded it for a new printer?
In that case try removing it for all architectures and start over. Maybe
assign it through rpcclient (I described in the documentation how). But
I suggest you use a new printer name in your smb.conf, as well. Because
if you choose the same, it takes the old and maybe broken stuff again
from the databases (it's not removed if you remove a printer from your
smb.con). Or if this is a complete new print server you had setup, start
from scratch.
