CUPS spools paper halfway, starts printing then stops

I have two machines, a desktop and a laptop, both running Spring 2008 and I can't get the desktop to print properly anymore. The laptop prints just fine plugged directly into the printer, and the desktop use to print as well, but recently I decided to configure CUPS so that I could remotely print to the desktop. Somehow during the process, CUPS stopped working on the desktop. When I send jobs to print, it spools the paper about halfway down, starts to print out just the top, and then stops. CUPS shows the job as being completed, and then it just sits there in limbo. I know I probably haven't provided adequate information, so I'll be sure to post anything thats helpful asap. Thanks

P.S. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the printer already with no success.
