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

Try this resolutions....

When you try to print a document or report using an HP Laserjetprinter, an error message similar to the one given below may print out:
PCL XL Error
* Subsystem: KERNEL
* Error: IllegalOperatorSequence
* Operator: SetColorSpace
* Position: 52
Cause of the Error
This error occurs due to a problem with the HP LaserJet PCL XL Driver.
Resolution Method
The following are some of the methods that you can use to workaroundthe problem and resolve the issue. After implementing each workaround,try to print your document again to see if the issue has been resolved.
Method 1: Directly Connect the Printer
Most commonly, LaserJet printers are accessed over a network. Toworkaround the issue, you may try to connect your PC directly to theprinter using an IEEE-1284 compliant cable.
Method 2: Disable High Speed and Advanced Features
Use the Control Panel that exists on your LaserJet Printer to disable the High Speed and Advanced Functions. To do this, you need to perform the following tasks:

  1. Display the I/O MENU by pressing the MENU key in the printer display.
  2. Now, press the ITEM key until you see Parallel High Speed = Yes.
  3. Now, press the VALUE key to change the value of Parallel High Speed to No. (Parallel High Speed = No)
  4. Press the SELECT key and ensure that an asterisk is displayed next to the Parallel High Speed = No item. (Parallel High Speed = No*).
  5. Next, press the ITEM key again until you see Advanced Functions = On in the printer display.
  6. Now, press the VALUE key until the value changes to Advanced Functions = Off.
  7. Press the SELECT key and ensure that an asterisk is displayed next to the Advanced Functions = Off item. (Advanced Functions = Off*).
Method 3: Update your Printer Driver
The PCL XL error may occur if one or more of the required driverfiles are missing from your computer or are outdated. In this case, youmay visit the HP Website for the latest driver updates, download them,and update the existing driver files.
Method 4: Use another Printer driver
If the problems with the PCL 6 driver continue to occur, remove itfrom your system. After removing, install the PCL5 printer driver thatis shipped with your HP LaserJet Family Printer. If this driver is notavailable, use the latest preinstalled driver that is available on yourWindows computer.
Note: You may use a good registry cleaner, such as RegGenie to clean your registry and ensure that the uninstalled driver does not leave behind any orphaned registry entries.
Method 5: Remove additional memory chips
If you have added any memory chips on your LaserJet printer, try toremove these additional chips to see if that solves the problem.

Since I installed another printer, my hp 1320 starts printing these lines: PCL XL error Subsystem: KERNEL Error Illegal Tag Operator: 0x1b Position: 6


Okay, a hex (0x1B), that's a hexadecimal number is defined by the 0xYY signature.

What you are looking at is a Hex IB, That is the escape code for earlier editions of the HP Command set.

More that likely, all you need to do is to change the driver properties to Pcl5e to fix your problem.

Right now, the printer is expecting a PCXL command set and it is receiving a PCL5e command set.

If you are using Windows 2003 Server and/or Windows XP Client machine and if you hace installed PCL 6 Driver than printer will print pcl xl error while printing.

To fix this problem user need to install PCL 5 Printer driver or Universal printer Drivers from the Link mentioned.
