No longer can print to USB printer



I've been printing from Fedora to a Lexmark inkjet printer (Z51) via
USB for more than a year without problem, but for some reason it no
longer works. Printer is on, USB cable plugged in, hwbrowser
recognizes it is connected... but print jobs get stuck in queue
forever. Printer itself is OK; I connnected it to my Ubuntu laptop and
printed a test page, no problem.

I started from scratch. Deleted all printers in Printer config,
recreated a new printer object, attached it to /dev/usb/lp0. If I
click "CUPS Test page", nothing happens. Printer config dialog returns
the following:

I [14/Mar/2006:13:14:31 +0100] Adding start banner page "none" to job 22.
I [14/Mar/2006:13:14:31 +0100] Adding end banner page "none" to job 22.
I [14/Mar/2006:13:14:31 +0100] Job 22 queued on 'Z51' by 'root'.
I [14/Mar/2006:13:14:31 +0100] Started filter
/usr/lib/cups/filter/pstops (PID 12607) for job 22.
I [14/Mar/2006:13:14:31 +0100] Started filter
/usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip (PID 12608) for job 22.
I [14/Mar/2006:13:14:31 +0100] Started backend
/usr/lib/cups/backend/usb (PID 12609) for job 22.

At this pint, gs goes to 100% CPU usage and eventually I have to kill
it in terminal. Similar with the A4 Postscript test page:

I [14/Mar/2006:13:11:04 +0100] Adding start banner page "none" to job 21.
I [14/Mar/2006:13:11:04 +0100] Adding end banner page "none" to job 21.

/usr/lib/cups/backend/usb (PID 12584) for job 21.
E [14/Mar/2006:13:11:06 +0100] PID 12583 stopped with status 3!
I [14/Mar/2006:13:11:06 +0100] Hint: Try setting the LogLevel to
"debug" to find out more.

At this point, I am stymied. Suggestions anyone?

Running FC4, kernel 2.6.12-1.1398. USB scanner works ok.
