You need to switch your print driver from pcl xl to pcl then this error should go away... when you open up printer driver properties... you get to this option by choosing the option the tab the furthest to the right...

Keep in mind though that in choosing a specific program, it is best to pick the one that not only does what the typical driver update does, but also one that provides a back up system for the driver files. This way, if something goes wrong, like accidental deletion of driver files, you will easily be able to re-install them by browsing through your back-up folder, undo the error and re-install the saved list of the driver file.
Computer maintenance aside though, updates are also of great help to the user. It provides an easier way to update driver files. It would take only minutes as opposed to updating manually which would usually take hours. This can save a lot of time for the user and it also helps avoid error and complication with the updating process as most of the job is done by the update software itself.

Kyocera fs 1028 error pcl xl kernel error operator 0x6b position 938


PCL error is telling you that the printer does not understand the data being sent. Could be a corrupt or incorrect driver, or the program you are printing from is sending corrupt data.

Why does my Kyocera FSC2126MPF print out a page with PCL XL Error on it?


It means your machine has identified an input - output error (I/O) probably receiving a corrupt data string or faulty communication port where it is connected to your computer or network. I/O ports are things like ethernet sockets, parallel ports, USB ports, and communications adapters of various types. I doubt someone is trying to fax you.

My hp color laserjet cp2025 has the pcl xl error subsystem: Kernel error: Illelgaloperatorsequence operator beginpage position: 14 What can I do to fix this?


A Hewlett-Packard LaserJet printing language, PCL 6 is optimized for printing from graphical user interfaces (GUIs) like Microsoft Windows.

The Enhanced PCL XL, or PCL 6, driver that is included with the HP LaserJet printers provides enhanced WYSIWYG and enhanced performance with application support over the Standard (PCL5e) driver. PCL XL is a new page description language by HP, that is part of PCL 6 and is closer to GDI, which many applications use. Less translation takes place by the driver, which means increased WYSIWYG capabilities, and better performance with applications that support escapes implemented by the Enhanced driver.

While printing using the PCL 6 driver it is possible to encounter a PCL XL error. This error will print out at the LaserJet device, and will look like something similar to the following:
PCL XL error

Subsystem: KERNEL
Error: IllegalOperatorSequence
Operator: EndSession
Position: 15

These type of errors can be PCL interpreter errors, firmware related, tied to communication, driver, driver dependency, and application specific. Additional troubleshooting will be required to further isolate to root cause.


Troubleshooting:


I. Verify printer functionality

To verify printer functionality, perform the following:
1.Power the printer Off.
2.Disconnect the parallel, USB, or network cable.
3.Power the printer On.
4.Once the printer display reports Ready, verify device functionality by printing a Configuration Page from the device.
Note: should the internal printer test not print as expected, and/or a PCL XL error occur, you have then isolated the issue to the printer device, and any network connectivity or driver / application troubleshooting can be ruled out.


II. Verify communication w/ the device

To verify communication with the device, perform the following:
1.Power the printer Off
2.Reconnect any communication device cable previously removed
3.Power the printer On
4.Once the printer display reports Ready, perform the following:
a.From the client machine or print server that had previously encountered the PCL XL error open the Printers and Faxes folder.
b.Right click the PCL 6 driver in question and select Properties.
c.From the General Tab select Print Test Page
d.Verify the driver test page successfully printed
Should the test page successfully print, continue with the next troubleshooting section entitled Isolate user, application and/or file.
Should the PCL XL error manifest itself as a result of the driver test page, perform the following:

1.At the print server, or client machine, open the Printers and Faxes folder

2.Click on Add Printer

3.Go through the Window’s driver install process installing the appropriate PCL 6 driver for the device in question, with the following characteristics: printing directly to the device (IP_Address, USB, Parallel, etc), creating a new print queue, selecting to Replace Existing Driver.
4.If the issue persists see section entitled: Microsoft Unidrv driver dependencies.
Note: If using an HP LaserJet PCL 6 device specific driver (discrete), try installing the latest HP Universal Print Driver PCL 6. Available at the hp.com website under support & drivers. Select product cb534a and also select your operating system, download a universal print driver Post Script would be the best selection.

You can also adjust a few settings under printing preferences:
under the advanced tab:
Raster compression:
Set it to max



III. Isolate user, application and/or file


If in fact the printers internal test pages and driver test page have printed successfully, further fault isolation must be performed to correlate the PCL XL error with a specific user, application, and or file. This information is most often easily gathered by speaking with the customer, investigating which user is printing when the PCL XL error manifests itself. Once the user is identified, the application the client was printing from can be isolated, and quite possibly the application file itself.

If an application file consistently causes a PCL XL error when sent to the device, it could be a problem only with the file.

IV. Microsoft Unidrv driver dependencies


The issue was identified to be related to Microsoft unicore files: unidrv.dll, unires.dll, and unidrvui.dll, that were not compatible with the available PCL 6 drivers at that time. Microsoft has developed a hotfix to address the symptomatic PCL XL errors – the Microsoft Hotfix can be reviewed here:
Microsoft Windows 2003 and XP: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/948046/en-us
Microsoft Windows 2008 and Vista: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/948349/en-us
Microsoft Windows 2000: NA
