LaserJet P1505 won't print "Printer busy..." [debian]

After having a million errors with the HPLIP driver, I found the foo2* drivers, decided to install it but it isn't working as it should.

I downloaded, built and installed the package without problems, installed the hotplug for the firmware, shutdown the printer for a few minutes, reconnected it, configured CUPS, and attempted to print a test page.

CUPS says: "Printer busy; will retry in 5 seconds.."
/var/log/messages after connecting the printer:

And the golden goose:

Skarlet:/tmp/foo2zjs# ls /dev/usb
lp0
Skarlet:/tmp/foo2zjs# usb_printerid /dev/usb/lp0
Error: Device or resource busy: can't open '/dev/usb/lp0'

I would really appreciate some help :).

PD: I'm using Debian.

Thanks in advance.

Put it on a different USB controller or change the cables or put it on a POWERED hub.

The port works properly, the printer was printing on HPLIP, with some mishaps, but printing.

Still, I tested changing the port, but it makes no difference.

In case it helps:
Skarlet:/tmp/foo2zjs# uname -a
Linux Skarlet 2.6.24-1-686 #1 SMP Thu May 8 02:16:39 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux

I already had uninstalled it, and the server was rebooted due to a power failure an hour after that, so you could say I power cycled it. Any more ideas :)?

# usb_printerid /dev/usb/lp0

Should work. Works on Fedora 12.
