          You are going to need to provide more info:

          1. version of Solaris?

          2. how was printer installed?

          3. output of lpstat -lp (printerqname)

          at the least.

          Does your non-root user have a default printer installed:

          lpstat -d

              And what are the content of /etc/printers.conf and $HOME/.printers.conf (from user profile) ?

                The output looks fishy. There is no content type or printer type.

                If you added an entry to printers.conf by editing the file,
                that is probably part of the problem.

                if this is a printer hosted on a Windows print server,
                then you should use the appropriate lpadmin command

                Solaris 10 printing guide:
                http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E19082-01/819-7761/819-7761.pdf

                Check out the "Setting Up Printers on a Print Client (TaskMap)"

                Using the command line or printer manager will allow the lp service
                to query the Windows system for preferred protocol, typically
                ipp, and allow the proper info to be written to /etc/printers.conf.
                See Appendix A for in depth info about IPP.

                When using the command line:

                # lpadmin -p printer -s print-server -D description

                make sure to use the same value for "-p" as the Windows
                system uses. The description is optional.
