I am getting a printer message "on hold, Authentication required" when directly connected (USB) to any printer I try to install to my MacBook Pro.  Any ideas?

I am having trouble with printing from my MacBook Pro.  After succesfully installing a printer, sending a print job results in a alert in the print que that says "on hold  Authentication Required" 


I am fairly new to Mac and have not the slightest clue what I am doing wrong.  Please help!


Thanks, Slojon

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
