5 hour delay in printing

in General Discussion edited January 2014
OK, I am at my wits end. I finally received my Dual G5 today, everything going great, until I try to print using classic applications. Every document I try to print is being set to print 5 HOURS after I send it !!! I am sure this is something simple, but I am having one of those days where everything is going wrong. Any ideas on what is causing this? I am getting really tired of opening the print monitor in order to get something printed.

Thank you!

    Printer is an Apple Laserwriter Pro630 (old). The problem occurs before the file ever gets to the printer. The PS file just sits in PrintMonitor with a time to print set at exactly 5 hours after I ask it to print. On a network of 4 PowerMacs, this only happens on the brand new G5, and only in classic. Printing is flawless in OS X (goddamn Quark 4 ... the only reason I even have to deal with classic. Can't upgrade to 6 until all of our computers can handle OS X, due to lack of backwards compatability)
