Re: HP Laserjet 4250 PCL6 prints only one page

The same problem with printing the whole document on to only one page on some laserjets in our work is after microsoft made the last update of their XPs(automatically in our firm), IE is now the latest, but prints are **** now. It waits on paper too even it is there. Microsoft update sucks!

Try using the PCL5 version drivers, if you are using PCL6; it tends to be slower, it worked for my printer.

I've had this problem before as well. I went into advanced printer settings and restored factory defaults.

I am using hp 3505 color lesser printer on windows 7 32bit, Driver that was installed automatically by windows is "HP Color LaserJet CP3505 PCL6" My tray 1 that is multipurpose tray is printing slo

Make sure that you have tray 1 set for the correct paper type. Leaving the paper type as unknown will result in very slow printing as the printer will assume that it might be printing on heavy media, envelopes or the like.

I have changed my pc, reconnected my hp laserjet 4250, installed drivers but now although the option for print both sides is clicked it doesn't print it. Any ideas??? Cause i have to print a 500 pages book...

There isn't too much to go on in your description. Taking a guess that you are running Windows....and if you are printing from Word...and that your printer has a duplexer sticking out the on the Print icon/select the printer/select properties/select finishing/check "print both sides". Select OK, select print.

Not so much a problem but got message printed out while trying to print a document. Unsupported Personality: UNKNOWN. Does this mean something I should be concerned with ??

An error page will print with the words "Unsupported Personality: PCL " in the upper left hand corner. The printers are host-based and do not support PCL printing; therefore, installing an alternate PCL5e or PCL6 printer driver will frequently generate this error condition. NOTE: This error condition occurs by design when an attempt to print with a PCL5e or PCL6 printer driver occurs and is NOT a bug within the product software. SOLUTION: Install the correct HP LaserJet Host-Based Printer Driver or the HP LaserJet printing system software for the product. These drivers are available for download from the HP web site. Click here to go to the HP web site drivers and downloads page. NOTE: There are several programs (such as accounting, invoicing, court documentation applications) that are 16 bit (DOS) programs with a 32 bit (Windows) overlay. Due to the nature of these applications and the associated Windows overlay, the errors may continue with the correct printer drivers. These applications do not typically support a host-based output device, and as such would not be supported in these environments.

Installing driver

Hi jjcr_7 - What is the make/model of your printer? (There are several different variations of this printer model):
» HP LaserJet P3005 Printer
» HP LaserJet P3005d Printer
» HP LaserJet P3005dn Printer
» HP LaserJet P3005n Printer
» HP LaserJet P3005x Printer

If you are using Microsoft Windows XP - Please visit the link below and download the PCL6 Univerisal Printer Driver. After you install the printer using the add new printer feature and select the option to browse (find the folder you downloaded the driver to) and install the printer. You can also install just the software which you can use if necessary or you want the HP software on the machine for user friendly help in the event of an error or support from HP to diagnose your problems.
(Copy and paste this link into your browser)

If you have already installed the software - uninstall the printer first then uninstall the software - delete the folder it creates in the Program files folder for HP. (Do this before installing just the printer with the driver)

Some times when you download the software from the websites they don't always install the correct printer or driver type. Often just downloading the driver from the page will be the best option.
