I think this line is the problem
E [03/Oct/2012:13:00:37 +0930] [Job 106] Failed to load the PPM image

The question is how do i fix it

As always thank in advance for your help

Some more information might be useful.

Have you checked the printer's status in CUPS? deleted the offending job from CUPS and tried to print a test page from the computer? from the printer menu (assuming it offers that feature)? tried printing from another computer in the network, if there is one?

Thanks frankbell
I have already did what you suggest. It did print from another computer.
So i reinstalled it, seems to be working now.
Can't say wether the problem is solved.
