Printing problem with Epson C43SX on FC2

I have strange problem with my printer Epson Stylus C43SX. Currently it only prints about 1 cm from the top of the page, then feed the paper to the middle of the page and stop. When I check to the spool, it looks like the print jobs is done without any problems.

If I use the printer directly with my laptop (WinXP) or using network (Samba with native client driver), then the printer is working perfectly. So I think the problem is not on the printer itself.

I tried to set up the printer using the printer configuration tool and using cups web interface, but both doesn't solved the problem. I also tried to upgrade to FC4, but also doesn't solved the problem yet.

At last.... I've found the source of the problem.
It's not on the printer nor Fedora itself.
The problem is on the printer cable, after switching it with another cable the printer works perfectly.

One question remain, why is it working perfectly with WinXP before?
But I'm not interested to find the answer right now. ^_^
