Your problem description is inadequate (exactly what you do and what
happens or doesn't happen when you do it--error messages, etc).

Have you flushed your cache and cookies in whatever browser you use to
perform cups administration? Have you tried creating a printer instance
from the command line? Have you stopped and restarted the cups daemon
while simultaneously throwing a prayer up (or down to the devil is in
the details)?

Do you have 500+ print jobs pending (I have read there is or was a
default max jobs limit set at 500)?
