I have tried the reccomendations that you guys have suggested with no luck.
Here is my current printcap.
admincolor|LANIER LD160c RPCS:\ :lp=\ :mx#0:\ :sd=/var/spool/output/admincolor:\ :rm=admincolor:\ :lf=/var/log/lpd-errs:\ :if=/usr/local/libexec/crfilter:\ :sh:\ :tr=\f:
Please trim your responses and don't top-post, as it makes responding to your messages difficult.
The printcap still has no :rp=lp: line. HP printers aren't picky about that, but other brands sometimes are.
You've also added a filter and kept the multiple printer names. Things like that make more complexity to debug. Wait until you have basic communication working. The exact suggested printcap entry:
admincolor:\ :lp=:\ :sh:\ :mx#0:\ :rm=admincolor:\ :rp=lp:\ :sd=/var/spool/output/admincolor:\ :lf=/var/log/lpd-errs:Note: one printer name (who needs more than one, really?). rm= and rp= entries. No filter; I think that printer can handle PostScript and PCL.
Put that printcap entry in /etc/printcap, then send a PostScript test to the printer (all one line):
printf "%%\!PS\n/Courier findfont 20 scalefont setfont 72 72 moveto (Test!) show showpage\f" | lpr -P admincolor -Warren Block * Rapid City, South Dakota USA
