Remote downlevel document on windows printer

When printing from ubuntu (zorin) to a hp officejet 5610 on a windows 2003 server, via samba, all I get is a Remote downlevel document on the print queue and nothing gets printed.
Can anyone give me a clue ?

Uncheck the 'Enable Bi-directional printing support' on the ports tab of the driver (In windoze)

Worked for me too. Thankful that this thread still appears in Google's search result else it would have taken a lot longer and more hair-pulling to resolve.
