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.

SOURCE: can't print duplex on p2015d

Hello, not all of the P2015 Series printers support Automatic Duplexing. Are you sure you have the correct model printer? Only the P2015D/DN/X support this feature. Check the front cover, it will have the model listed... In the printer driver, check the device settings, see if duplexing is an option and enable it.

SOURCE: Please help. The device

This is a corrupted Postscript error.
Possible solutions are, reload up to date driver and/or firmware. Go to Xerox website address below for drivers and firmware.
http://www.support.xerox.com/support/phaser-4500/downloads/engb.html?operatingSystem=winxp&fileLanguage=en_GB
This could also be a program specific problem, try printing from another software package.
Finally, you could try an NVRAM reset. Go to 'Troubleshooting', 'Service Tools', 'Reset NVRAM'. WARNING, before performing an NVRAM reset, print out a configuration page. 'Information', 'Information Pages', 'Configuration Page'. This print out will give you all the printers settings, including your network settings, which will be lost through the reset. You will need to re input them through 'Printer Setup', 'Connection Setup', 'TCPIP'.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: have a Xerox Phaser 8560

Sounds like a Postscript error. Try resetting the NVRAM. 'Troubleshooting', Service Tools', 'Reset NVRAM'. If that doesn't work, go into diagnostics and clear the PS NVRAM. 'Troubleshooting', 'Service Tools', press and hold 'Up Button' then press 'Down Button'. This takes you into a hidden service menu. From there scroll down to 'Enter Service Diagnostics' and press OK. Printer will turn off and reboot into diagnostics. Scroll down to 'Function' menu and press OK. Now scroll down to 'Clear PS NVRAM' and press OK. Press 'Back' button to return to first menu, scroll up to select 'Return To Customer Mode' and press OK. Don't forget you will lose all printer settings including your IP address. As you cannot print out a configuration page, this will be like setting the printer up from new as you will have no reference to your earlier settings.
Hope this helps.

Laserjet 4050 - black streaking on right hand side of page


It is either the toner cartridge or the fuser.
Put paper in the manual feed tray.
Print the Configuration Pages.
When the sheet is half way fed into the printer, open the top cover.
Remove the toner and look at the sheet of paper. If you see the black streak, the toner is bad.
If the sheet looks good, the fuser is bad. Probably a bad roller, which you can see looking at the fuser.

My hp color laserjet cp2025 has the pcl xl error subsystem: Kernel error: Illelgaloperatorsequence operator beginpage position: 14 What can I do to fix this?


A Hewlett-Packard LaserJet printing language, PCL 6 is optimized for printing from graphical user interfaces (GUIs) like Microsoft Windows.

The Enhanced PCL XL, or PCL 6, driver that is included with the HP LaserJet printers provides enhanced WYSIWYG and enhanced performance with application support over the Standard (PCL5e) driver. PCL XL is a new page description language by HP, that is part of PCL 6 and is closer to GDI, which many applications use. Less translation takes place by the driver, which means increased WYSIWYG capabilities, and better performance with applications that support escapes implemented by the Enhanced driver.

While printing using the PCL 6 driver it is possible to encounter a PCL XL error. This error will print out at the LaserJet device, and will look like something similar to the following:
PCL XL error

Subsystem: KERNEL
Error: IllegalOperatorSequence
Operator: EndSession
Position: 15

These type of errors can be PCL interpreter errors, firmware related, tied to communication, driver, driver dependency, and application specific. Additional troubleshooting will be required to further isolate to root cause.


Troubleshooting:


I. Verify printer functionality

To verify printer functionality, perform the following:
1.Power the printer Off.
2.Disconnect the parallel, USB, or network cable.
3.Power the printer On.
4.Once the printer display reports Ready, verify device functionality by printing a Configuration Page from the device.
Note: should the internal printer test not print as expected, and/or a PCL XL error occur, you have then isolated the issue to the printer device, and any network connectivity or driver / application troubleshooting can be ruled out.


II. Verify communication w/ the device

To verify communication with the device, perform the following:
1.Power the printer Off
2.Reconnect any communication device cable previously removed
3.Power the printer On
4.Once the printer display reports Ready, perform the following:
a.From the client machine or print server that had previously encountered the PCL XL error open the Printers and Faxes folder.
b.Right click the PCL 6 driver in question and select Properties.
c.From the General Tab select Print Test Page
d.Verify the driver test page successfully printed
Should the test page successfully print, continue with the next troubleshooting section entitled Isolate user, application and/or file.
Should the PCL XL error manifest itself as a result of the driver test page, perform the following:

1.At the print server, or client machine, open the Printers and Faxes folder

2.Click on Add Printer

3.Go through the Window’s driver install process installing the appropriate PCL 6 driver for the device in question, with the following characteristics: printing directly to the device (IP_Address, USB, Parallel, etc), creating a new print queue, selecting to Replace Existing Driver.
4.If the issue persists see section entitled: Microsoft Unidrv driver dependencies.
Note: If using an HP LaserJet PCL 6 device specific driver (discrete), try installing the latest HP Universal Print Driver PCL 6. Available at the hp.com website under support & drivers. Select product cb534a and also select your operating system, download a universal print driver Post Script would be the best selection.

You can also adjust a few settings under printing preferences:
under the advanced tab:
Raster compression:
Set it to max



III. Isolate user, application and/or file


If in fact the printers internal test pages and driver test page have printed successfully, further fault isolation must be performed to correlate the PCL XL error with a specific user, application, and or file. This information is most often easily gathered by speaking with the customer, investigating which user is printing when the PCL XL error manifests itself. Once the user is identified, the application the client was printing from can be isolated, and quite possibly the application file itself.

If an application file consistently causes a PCL XL error when sent to the device, it could be a problem only with the file.

IV. Microsoft Unidrv driver dependencies


The issue was identified to be related to Microsoft unicore files: unidrv.dll, unires.dll, and unidrvui.dll, that were not compatible with the available PCL 6 drivers at that time. Microsoft has developed a hotfix to address the symptomatic PCL XL errors – the Microsoft Hotfix can be reviewed here:
Microsoft Windows 2003 and XP: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/948046/en-us
Microsoft Windows 2008 and Vista: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/948349/en-us
Microsoft Windows 2000: NA

When I try to print the triangle with an exclamation point flashes and doesn't print


This is the 'Attention' light. It indicates that the cartridge door is open, or that other errors exist.

Not great info, but you need to methodically eliminate the possible causes of the error....

1. Try putting some paper into the Manual feed tray / slot. It may be waiting for you to feed paper manually. Check your printer driver settings....

2. Press the 'Go' button. It will make it print from Tray2

3. Check your Printer driver settings, and 'Page set up' in the application

4. Switch the device off, and unplug the data cable.

5.Switch it back on.

6. Print a configuration page from the printer control panel by pressing the Go button (the green one) until the green Ready and Error light start blinking.

7. If it prints these pages successfully, then the problem may be elsewhere (PC software, application, corrupt data, etc) but check the settings on the Configuration page as well.
Make sure they match your system, paper size and type, feeding options etc....
