    To accurately assist I would need some more information:

    What OS are you running ex: Windows XP, Vista etc..?

    What type of printer is returning this error?

    What version of PCL driver are you using?

    Is this at home or office?

    If at the office, do you print directly to the machine or do you use a network shared printer that is installed on another PC on your network?

    If at home, how are you connected? ex: USB, parallel, ethernet

FIXED: PCL XL error when printing to a HP printer

I fixed this problem by installing the KB948046 Hotfix from Microsoft (thanks to Brent Follett from forums11.itrc.hp.com for pointing me in the right direction).

To download and install this hotfix, search for “hotfix KB948046” or go to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/948046 and click on “view and request hotfix downloads”.

You will be prompted for an email address, the URL for the hotfix together with a password will be emailed to that address.

Install the hotfix and reboot the system. The problem was fixed for me at this point.

I tried to print before rebooting, but that did not fix the problem, a reboot is essential.

More information:
I encountered this problem on a HP 2605 (laserjet) printer (HP2605) that was shared from a Windows Small Business Server 2003 with Service Pack 2 (SBS SP2).
When printing from networked machines the error was printed out on the printer. After installing the KB/948046 hotfix on the server only and rebooting the server, the problem was fixed.
I also installed other updates on the server before installing the hotfix using Microsoft Update.

PCL XL error in hp laserjet 3055


Hi,
information about the cause:
PCL XL error pages that print from an HP LaserJet 1200, 1300, 2200, 2300, 3200 or 3300 series product when a PCL 6 printer driver is in use typically indicate a communication issue. Sometimes this issue is caused by an incompatibility between the Enhanced XL language and the software application.

You can find the solution for this error here:
(It's a long instruction page, I advise to copy the sections that refere to your OS to a separate document, so you don't miss any step)
URL to HP service page:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=110&prodSeriesId=1161389&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=1161389&objectID=bpl10637

PCL XL error when i give command to the printer from my pc, i get the following error PCL XL error Subsystem: KERNEL Error: IllegalTag Operator: Oxlb Postion: 6


I already answered this, but the response did not get posted.

The short answer is that the PCL XL interpreter has picked up the use of the "Escape Code" (0x1B) in the incoming datastream. This command is used for the standard versions of PCL, most notable PCL 5e. It is not used in the PCL XL datastream.

PCL XL error


It is a driver error, try another printer driver version or use PCL 5 rather then PCL 6 driver,

Check your USB cable it must be HighSpeed or USB 2 cable.
