PCL XL error with HP printers.

Staff Faculty

This is an example of what will most commonly be displayed on either a printout or, on the LCD screen on larger HP printers/copiers:

 

PCL XL Error

Subsystem: KERNEL

Error: IllegalOperatorSequence

Operator: SetColorSpace

Position: 52

 

This is an error that occurs usually between the program the user is trying to print from and the enhanced functions of the PCL 6 driver. The easiest solution is to remove the printer from the user's list of printers and re-add it using the PCL 5 (sometimes they are called PCL 5e) driver version for that particular printer.
