Printer "opening" status

By Franna ·
I'm having a problem that's driving me nuts.
Some of my printers, continuously get a opening status.
The only way of fixing it, is deleting the printer, opening the add printer wizard, selecting network printer, select "connect to this printer".
Here I have to leave it blank, click next, and in the top bar, enter \\pcname\printer.
Then I have to enter network credentials.
Here's the weird part, no matter what credentials I enter here, I can't connect to the printer.
From here on, I cancel everything, again go to the add printer wizard, go through same steps as above, and everything works fine.
Any ideas ?
thank you
