RedHat Troubleshooting printing through Cups

Hello Experts,

I have been facing an issue with printing through cups configured on Linux server.
All was going on well but all of a sudden the printers started giving an error message, "Unsupported format application/postscript!" and we cant get any prints of any printer.

Thanks in advance,
Rocky Smilie
