It is a driver error, try another printer driver version or use PCL 5 rather then PCL 6 driver,

Check your USB cable it must be HighSpeed or USB 2 cable.

SOURCE: PCL XL error when i give command to the printer

I already answered this, but the response did not get posted.

The short answer is that the PCL XL interpreter has picked up the use of the "Escape Code" (0x1B) in the incoming datastream. This command is used for the standard versions of PCL, most notable PCL 5e. It is not used in the PCL XL datastream.

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

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