Question about HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401DN Laser Printer

2 Answers

Printer printing crazy symbols

I have a HP laserjet pro 400 m401dn and when you try to print a regular document, or any document it prints out random symbols and blank pages. I'm using windows 7 and it has the universal PCL 6 driver. It is networked and I have updated the firmware. Not sure what else to try. Any help would be great!

    @arun bora this issue is not isolated to just one PC. I think I've narrowed down that it is just the printer. But I will try this anyways.

I think that Odyssey user is right it maybe that the print driver is not compatible with the program you are using goto hp.com or hp.co.uk and download the PCL 5e driver

Hope this helps you
Thanks J

I had this same issue, are you able to print from the printer's internal test feature?  If so try turning the power off for at least 10 seconds.  This is just at temporary fix I am still looking for a permanent fix that does not involve replacing the printer.

Hello,
Your problem could be either due to the malfunctioning of the driver or you may have installed a wrong printer's driver.
This can be rectified by reinstalling the printer;s driver. Please find the proper driver in the following link.

SOURCE: hp laserjet 3600 PCL XL error when printing a PDF

This is a known issue with 'host-based' printers like the 3600. You need the PCL5 driver, which this printer will not work with. You need a different printer, such as the HP 3520.

This page will explain it all.

I would upgrade the driver first. You can also do a factory refresh which brings the printer back to the original condition. Make sure that you get the ip address off the config page just in case you need to reset the settings.

HP LaserJet 3050 All-In-One Printer blank pages after attempting to print second envelope from same document - turning off and back on solves temporarily


If the same fault occurs with different printers it is almost certainly caused by the document.
"...second envelope from same document" suggests you are using a mail-merger. Is that right?
What happens if you start again from scratch? Mke a new document and try to print it a a single entity, without using mail merge?
