Question about HP LaserJet 4 plus Printer
Error message: W2 invalid pers
You have two choices:
1) Purchase and install a Postscript SIMM or Cartridge. This will allow you to use the standard Apple driver which is Postscript (likely the one you are presently trying to use)
2) Simply use the generic PCL driver included in your list of drivers on your Mac. The driver name is "HP Laserjet Series PCL 4/5, 1.3" This will allow you to print using PCL the native page decription language of your printer.
The error "W2 Invalid Pers" means that you are sneding a print job in Postscript whne the printer only "speaks" PCL.

This printer will not work with a Mac - it has no postscript.
The only laserjet 4's that work with Macs all have an "M" in their name - 4M, 4M Plus etc.
You might be able to get a Postscript personality module for the printer to effectively upgrade it to the "M" version.
