I'm suffering a strange problem with my Cannon iP4850 when trying to use CUPS on a Raspberry Pi (this is not RPi specific, please do not vote to move it).
When I plug the printer into my Laptop (OSX) or my Desktop W7 it identifies as a iP4800 and prints perfectly.
So I plug it into the Pi (running debian), set it up in CUPS enable sharing and can now see the iP4800 series shared on the network.
However if I print to it (using AirPrint etc...); the file gets to CUPS safely (shows in the queue) but when it tries to print the printer clicks (like a loud thunk) 3/4 times and then gives in, with a double amber flashing light. In cups it shows as job completed.
Do you know why using the pi and cups would cause what appears to be a hardware fault and what I can do to fix the problem or to provide further debug info?
Thanks for your time!

Note: I've tried deleting and re-adding the printer to the Laptop, Desktop and PI and the results are always the same
