It sounds to me like the printer is misconfigured; i.e. the file you
print is actually sent to the printer but probably in a format that it
cannot understand. Does your printer support plain text printing? If so
try sending a testfile directly to the printer device file. If that
works you need to figure out the proper driver for your printer model...

lpstat is IIRC part of the SysV group of printing tools, whereas you
have BSD-style printing. `lpc stat` should be about the same.
