SOURCE: HP 2420 keep printer wrong characters

Cary Ian Lee,

What OS, what application(s) and what is the current driver you are using?

Are you trying to print a web page that has Adobe Flash or Shockwave Player components? If Yes, Go to and update Adobe Flash Player and Shockwave Media Player.

If not, are you using the PCL or the PS printer driver for your printer? There are 9 models to the HP LaserJet 2400 Series printer. Pick yours from the link that follows, and then select the OS and then the latest driver. (PS or PCL will work with this printer). You might start with the PCL6 driver as stated by Nikhil, in the information above.

Try this and let me know what happens. Binary Bob

power on your printer, after you see processing data the second time, press cancel.
Everytime I have seen this error is because the user tries to print a PDF file that is corrupt.
This has worked for me in the past.

There's probably a problem with the card in the printer. It may need a firmware upgrade, you may need to adjust settings or even change the slot. The EIO 1 means it is now in slot 1. Here are some steps to try from the HP website:

Press (Select) to enter the MENUS.
Press (Down arrow) to highlight INFORMATION.
Press (Select) to select INFORMATION.
Press (Down arrow) to highlight PRINT CONFIGURATION.
Press (Select) to select PRINT CONFIGURATION
Check if the I/O card is on ready state.
Make sure that TCP/IP status is ready.
Check the network statistics for any bad packets or bad transmition.
Try to use another slot then the one that the JD is installed on.
If the problem persist,try performing a cold reset with the JD inside.Warning: This will reset the printer's configuration to the default settings,and also to the JD so you will need to set again the network values.

Duplex printing in HP 2420dn


I had the same problem. It was due to incorrect properties in the printer settings.

  1. Go to Start >> Printers and Faxes
  2. Right-click on the HP 2420 printer and select Properties.
  3. Go to the Device Settings tab.
  4. Under Installable Options, set Duplex Unit to Installed.
Also, make sure that the Printing Preferences are set to Two Sided Printing:
  1. Go to Start >> Printers and Faxes
  2. Right-click on the HP 2420 printer and select Printing Preferences.
  3. Go to the Printing Shortcuts tab.
  4. Select the Two Sided (Duplex) Printing option.
That should do the trick.

HP - please change your setup so that this is set by default!!

My HP LJ 2420 printer always lost network connection


I would recommend replacing the JetDirect card in your printer. What model is the card? The 600, 610 and 615 can be replaced with a newer 620. Make note of all of the IP address info before replacing the JetDirect card. If you send more detailed info, I can make sure that I send the correct info that you need.
