Showing 2 x printers same; cant delete one

When I delete the phantom printer MFCJ-480, its removed from printers, but remains in the print available printers. Any ideas?

Yes you have automatic discovery active and your printer supports TWO connections. The avahi daemon is responsible for that. I have it too with a HP 7 in 1. It adds a printer for printing over a cable, wifi AND bluetooth when each of them are active.

I forgot how to fix this but when searching found a topic about it:
The link to has some solutions like disabling “bonjour” on the printer itself or by altering cups config.
