HP LaserJet P1005 suddenly stops printing.

OS: Debian Wheezy

HP LaserJet P1006 / P1008 : foo2zjs – foo2hp – foo2xqx – foo2lava – foo2qpdl – foo2oak
Support for linux printer drivers
P1006 – Raspberry Pi, test page fails [solved; need usblp kernel module]
http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/forum/read.php?43,3658,3658

usblp kernel module must be loaded to run HP LaserJet P100x printers?

I guess it does. My HP LaserJet P1005 suddenly stopped working last night. Firmware uploading strangely wouldn’t go through this time both foo2zjs and hplip driver.

During the installation of foo2zjs from tarball, it ran modprobe usblp. And then the printer started to print previous jobs suddenly and it got back to work again.
