Question about HP Color Laser 2550N Printer

Getting an error message from printer

I am getting two error messages when I try to print a document from my HP color laser printer 2550.


1.  Subsystem:  Kernel

     Error:   IllegalTage

     Operator:  Oxlb


2.  Subsystem:  Image

     Error:  CurrentCursorUndefined

     Operator:  BeginImage


I replaced two cartridges (black and yellow) then tried to print 32 pages from publisher with a lot of graphics.  It just sat there, so I deleted the print job, turned it off, ran a print test, turned the entire sytem off, reconnected the USB cable, followed the instructions for troubleshooting, and nothing has worked.  I tried printing just a simple word document and still get the error message.


I even cut the printer off for a day thinking it would clear any print jobs left in it and I still get the above print jobs.


Please help.

SOURCE: PCL XL error when i give command to the printer

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.

One reason this error message is displayed on Dell laser printers ... attempting to duplex print using the Single Sheet Feeder (SSF). Try printing document single sided if using the SSF.
