Please firew up a terminal and note the output of the folliwing command:

    $ pacman -Ql |grep ppd

If you get at least one file, I suggest you to access the adminsitrative CUPS web interface through https://localhost:631/ and then deinstall the current printer.
Then install it againt as a local USB printer. When asking you about the printer driver, browser for a local file and select the file listed in the step above.

Confirm the creation of the printer and follow the steps to print a test page.

Post back.
