LaserJet 3550- Illegal Operator Sequence

Hi please help. My printer is conected to a net work of 4 computers + a remote desktop. The printer is only printing out half a page of what ever (writing or pictures) then printing out on a new piece of paper:
PCL XL error
Subsystem: KERNEL
Error: Illegal Operator Sequence
Operator: End Session
Position 53

What does this mean

    I used to see this type of error when trying to print an image that was too large for the printers memory. My fix was to clear the print queue, unplug the network cable and turn the printer off for a minute to clear the memory.

    Have you tried this?

If you are using Windows 2003 Server and/or Windows XP Client machine and if you hace installed PCL 6 Driver than printer will print pcl xl error while printing.

To fix this problem user need to install PCL 5 Printer driver or Universal printer Drivers from the Link mentioned.

Regularly getting error code 50.9 on a HP color laserjet 3550 printer


Hey Joe,
This is what the HP Website has to say about it:
50.X FUSER ERROR Description A fuser error has occurred. Action
  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Verify the fuser is properly installed and fully seated.
  3. Turn on the printer.
  4. If the message persists, contact HP Support.
BUT! you can try performing a cold reset, and maybe this would help:
500, 3550, 3700, 4600, 4650, 5500, 5550, 8500, 8550, 9500) use the instructions below. 1. Turn the printer on.
2. When the memory starts counting on the control panel, press and hold the green SELECT button. Continue to hold green SELECT button until all three Control Panel LED's are illuminated and on solid.
3. Release the green SELECT button.
4. The control panel will display SELECT LANGUAGE.
5. Press the DOWN ARROW button until control panel displays COLD RESET.
6. Press green SELECT button. The printer will perform a cold reset and then continue its power-on sequence.

Good luck!

Try updating the printers firmware.
You can download firmware here http://bit.ly/13kZ7i
If the problem remains, try replacing the driver with a PostScript-driver. That should help you out.
