Printing Problems in Ubuntu 9.04 with HP P3005
I'm running Ubuntu 9.04 with a HP P3005 Laser Printer attached via USB.
Ubuntu picks up the printer and installs fine. Problem occurs when try to print. Send test page to printer is ok, job appears in print queue and then prints out, send second test print to printer, job appears in print queue but no printing. Message appears at bottom of queue "HP Laserjet P3005 may not be connected". Switch printer off and on and job then prints out. Further print jobs encounter the same problem.
I've had this problem since Ubuntu 7.10 with this printer. The HP 2550 also attached to this computer bia usb works ok, as does the HP 1160 on a different system also running Ubuntu 9.04.
I need to get this working as I urgently need to upgrade from 7.04 to 9.04 on all the schools printservers.
Further Notes: Downloaded and installed HPLIP 3.9.4b but made no difference. However, printer works fine if you use the parallel ports....
Thanks (in anticipation)

The first think to check is the openprinting database.
OpenPrinting database - Printer: HP LaserJet P3005
The user feedback there suggests this is a udev/usb issue. The work arround posted is that powering up the printer before the PC gets round the problem.
Also digging through the HPLIP bug reporting database throws up this bug:
Which you may wish to read and keep an eye on.
There is also this bug in the Ubuntu database:
which may be of interest.

Thought it might be a usb problem. To be honest, I hadn't given it a lot of thought because the print servers are all quite old machines (pentium 800's) and were running Ubuntu 7.04 (with all available updates applied) quite happily....
Will follow up your urls though.
