LaserJet 1018 - Debian 6.0.6 problem

Hi ,all. I have done everything according to the instruction, and it worked fine initially. But my printer denied to work after an OS second booting (it accepted print jobs, but stayed idle all the time).

lsusb
Bus 001 Device 011: ID 03f0:4117 Hewlett-Packard LaserJet 1018

I had tried :
$ cd foo2zjs
$ foo2zjs-wrapper -P -z1 -L0 testpage.ps > xxx.prn
$ cp xxx.prn /dev/usb/lp0
and hung a process after the third command. After that I tried to send a signal to the process (Ctrl+C or Ctrl+D), but it didn't respond. I rebooted OS, rejected print jobs and looked through "dmesg" messages. There were such messages as:

[   16.220101] usb 1-4: device descriptor read/64, error -110
[  217.941921] usb 1-4: usbfs: interface 0 claimed by usblp while 'usb' sets config #1
[  325.704196] usb 1-4: usbfs: USBDEVFS_CONTROL failed cmd lsusb rqt 128 rq 6 len 255 ret -110

lsmod | grep usblp
usblp                   9571  0 
usbcore               123271  6 usblp,usbhid,uvcvideo,uhci_hcd,ehci_hcd

usb_printerid /dev/usb/lp2
MFG:Hewlett-Packard;MDL:HP LaserJet 1018;CMD:ACL;CLS:PRINTER;DES:HP LaserJet 1018;  <-- No "FWVER" substring is there !

What should I do in this situation ?

$ usb_printerid /dev/usb/lp2
MFG:Hewlett-Packard;MDL:HP LaserJet 1018;CMD:ACL;CLS:PRINTER;DES:HP LaserJet 1018

This is your problem. Should be "FWVER:20051028;"

Did you do:

$ sudo make install-hotplug

???

Did you power down and up the printer? Orange LED should indicate that firmware is getting downloaded. No orange light, no firmware download.
