Printing Issues or "Why I am going to put my HP printers out the window"
OK Currently I am having three printer issues and I was wondering if anyone could provide me with some advice.
First off, I'm using HP Laserjet 5200n and HP Laserjet 5550n win 2K3 Server with Software Shelf's Print Manager Plus (almost the latest version, there is a new update that I've yet to apply). XP computers with Office 2007.
I was getting a number of PCL XL errors randomly, google told me that this could be due to communicatin errors and that changing the driver from PCL6 to PCL5 could fix the problem. I tried this (downloaded the latest drivers from HP)and whilst it seems to have solved one problem it has generated a new one. 9 out of 10 times the dcuments print fine, then at random it will print one document off with all the characters swapped for rubbish. Normally formatted correctly but with the text as random characters and punctuation. I can't see a pattern or reason too yet it happens on both printers. Any ideas?
Second now I've changed driver for the HP Laserjet 5550n when someone tries to print multiple copies of a document it prints them and then occasionally prints an extra page saying "Unable to store job at printer, Printer does not support collation at printer, turn off Mopier Enabled in oyur printer driver". Fine except I have already turned off Mopier enabled and the hard disk in the printer driver.
Thirdly I have a problem with an HP Laserjet 1020 and 1022. The printers work fine if you print text only. If you print a picture with the text it prints a vertical black line on the end of every line in the right hand margin. Again I've already taken the latest drivers from HP and I've tried both the host based driver and the full feature install.
