Epson EPL-5900L on Leopard

It just NOT working! No! Not working at all. My Epson EPL-5900L is not printing.

Last year, I tried so hard just to make it work on my iMac (Ref: "Epson EPL-5900L on iMac). But after my iMac had upgraded to Leopard, it stops to work again. Every time it gives me this error:

I've tried the default printer driver which come with Leopard, tried an older one I used last time (v3.0) and a newer one from Epson's website (v4.0). After the computer sent the data to printer (it took over a minute), the green LED blinks and red LED is on. Computer shows "Unable to receive print data", "Turn off the printer and check all cable connections. Wait a few minutes, then turn on the printer and try printing again."

I connected the printer to my XP laptop. It has no problem at all. Printing is almost instantly. Sigh, I don't want to throw it away. I don't want to pay for a new one. Also, the printer can print another 6000+ pages (I still haven't finish the first 3000 page toner). What a waste!
