I have a HP LaserJet 4 with 6 mgs of memory and the postscript option. I bought in new in '93 and it still works as good as it did then. I have been a PC user for 25 yrs. and have now switched to a Mac. I bought a iMac with OS X Leopard. I am trying to get my HPLJ4 to work with my Mac. I bought a cable that is parallel to USB. The computer still will not recognize the printer. The HPLJ4 was not on the printers list. I called Apple support. They helped me put the printer on the list. We then installed the CUPS driver. The printer printed a test page from the CUPS website but would not print a document from my Mac. It still said printer not recognized. They didn't know what else to do. One forum recommended an ethernet-to-LocalTalk adapter from Asante or Proxim (formerly Farallon). That is total Greek to me. As I said I am a former PC user and don't know what they are talking about. I would appreciate any suggestions you may have.

FROM THE SERVICE MANUAL
W2 INVALID PERS:
The job was not printed because the requested personality,
such as PostScript, was not installed. Install the language in
which the files are sent, together with enough memory to
support that language.
I SUGGEST CHECK IF YOU GOT THE POSTSCRIPT INSTALLED
You'll have to use google.com to translate this because I don't speak Spanish, but I used it to translate your text into English.
What you're seeing is PostScript being output to a non-PostScript printer. Mac OS 9 LaserWriter driver prints only PostScript. Make sure you've downloaded the correct driver from HP, and then make sure you're selecting the HP driver in the Chooser.
Please let me know if this information helps or not.
