Question about HP LaserJet 2550L Printer

1 Answer

Prints lines of garbage

My HP 2550L suddenly has started to print a single line of garbage on a page, eject the page and repeat the same thing on the next page instead of printing photos. It worked fine until two days ago. I believe this has something to do with encoding, as I had the problem when I initially purchased the printer and had to change the print encoding in Photoshop to make it work. I have tried all four types of encoding offered (ASCII, binary, ASCII8xx and JPEG), but get the same result.

Re: Prints lines of garbage

This sounds like a driver issue, the wrong driver may be in use or may be corrupted. Go into Control Panel > Printers and delete the printer, then reinstall it using the drivers that came with the printer. Let me know how it works out!
