problem printing images(pictures) with hplj1000 and foo2zjs

I am using this driver for my printer and when I print any texts it prints fine(normaly), but when I try to print some color or grayscale image on printed images I see some transision between darker and lighter color or area. Look at this:
Picture: http://www.freewebtown.com/lilisoft/picture.jpg ,
Printed Picture: http://www.freewebtown.com/lilisoft/printed.jpg
(look at the area around the nose).
I am using ghostscrip : GPL Ghostscript 8.54 (2006-05-17) , and the latest foo2zjs driver from this site (downloaded on dec,9 2006.).

It is interested that when I was using foo2zjs 2 years ago on SuSE with Ghostscript version, I think 7.07, printing picture works great...
Now I am using Gentoo.

Ghostscript issue. Use 7.07 gs instead.

I just compiled and istalled Ghostscript 7.07, and when I try to print picture ... I have same problem like with GS 8.54 ! I dont know what to do ?
Maybe I should use some other -sDEVICE , not pbmraw ?

Printed the picture to HP 1020 with 600x600 resolution (i.e. HP 1000 parameters).

Printed fine.

It is not foo2zjs.

So, you think, it is not your driver problem ? I dont know what might be a problem. What GS version do you use rickrich ?

I send http://www.rkkda.com/tmp/picture.zm to my hplj1000 using command cp picture.zm /dev/usb/lp0 , and I get same problem like before.
I installed GS 8.15, than 8.54, and at least 7.07 , and with any version of GS I get same problem.
Something very strange is happening.
I dont know what to do anymore.

(is it possilble that some settings from 8.54 version of GS reamins in my sistem so , when I use 7.07 it uses that settings from 8.54 ?)

You need new printer, then. Or a new toner.

hmmm...I am not sure about that. Because I tried my printer in MS Windows, and it prints perfectly ! And there is no help for me. I will print only texts in future.

Thanks anyway.

Maybe I will buy some pure PostScript printer some day...When I earn some money or something...
