FIXED: PCL XL error when printing to a HP printer

I fixed this problem by installing the KB948046 Hotfix from Microsoft (thanks to Brent Follett from forums11.itrc.hp.com for pointing me in the right direction).

To download and install this hotfix, search for “hotfix KB948046” or go to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/948046 and click on “view and request hotfix downloads”.

You will be prompted for an email address, the URL for the hotfix together with a password will be emailed to that address.

Install the hotfix and reboot the system. The problem was fixed for me at this point.

I tried to print before rebooting, but that did not fix the problem, a reboot is essential.

More information:
I encountered this problem on a HP 2605 (laserjet) printer (HP2605) that was shared from a Windows Small Business Server 2003 with Service Pack 2 (SBS SP2).
When printing from networked machines the error was printed out on the printer. After installing the KB/948046 hotfix on the server only and rebooting the server, the problem was fixed.
I also installed other updates on the server before installing the hotfix using Microsoft Update.

This is the best solution for this problem. Install in your pc a new driver of your printer.It's located in your own pc.Just add a new driver HP Laserjet 1200 Series PCL. Try this, it's work. I hope everyone will share ideas about fixing problems.it's me: spinx_g@yahoo.com

Aug 13, 2008 02:59:02 GMT I purchased a HP Color LaserJet CM1312nfi MFP and connected to my HPLaptop with Vista 64-bit operating system and received the followingerrors when trying to print from most applications:

PCL XL error
Subsystem: KERNEL
Error: IllegalOperatorSequence

After many hours of reinstalling the drivers, the firmware, on thephone with Microsoft and on the phone with HP to no avail, I discoveredthe work around myself.

I downloaded the HP Universal Print Driver Series for Windows Vista 64-Bit and this driver works! Here is the link:

Clint,

Just so you know what you were dealing with, as it may resurface, seeboth of Chris H's replies in this thread. Since the error was the same,it was a driver fault, and replacing the driver, not necessarily thatspecific UPD driver, that fixed it.

Update:

I continued to look at the issue and now think the problem is not thedriver, but the application software. Using the 64-bit driver for theCM1312:

1. I can print color using Paint and text using Notepad.

2. I cannot print from Adobe 9, IE 7 and Office 2007 (downloaded 9/17/08) in color. If I do I get the
PCL XL error
Subsytem: KERNEL
Error: Illegal Operator Sequence
Operator: EndSession
Position: 15

3. I CAN print all the products in 2 if I switch to grayscale.

4. I can print screen captures from the products in 2 using Paint -which may be my workaround until HP and Microsoft get together on asolution.

So does anyone from HP monitor this and report the issue and resolve it?

So theThe problem for me is color printing in Microsoft products.

Change paper to plain instead of UNSPECIFIED in the printing properties. The printer hates the UNSPECIFIED setting.
