Question about HP LaserJet color laser printer
I have this error code: PCL XL error
The first thing to try is to turn the machine off, then back on at the red "main power" switch located on the left side of the machine. If the code returns it is indicative of firmware problems or a loose connection.
At this point I would seriously recommend getting a service tech to come out. However, if you want, you can take off the back cover (MAKE SURE THE POWER CORD IS UNPLUGED) and double check all of the connections by (GENTLY) pressing them into their connections. Hope this helps. Let me know.

Some people have issues with the PCL6 driver this causes pcl xl error like this to print. Change your driver from the PCL6 driver to the PCL5 driver. If you don't have the software you can down load it from HP at: http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html

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.
