PCL xl error illegalmediasource for hp9000 printer...

We are receiving an error with the hp9000 printers when using the pcl6 driver:

PCL xl error IllegalMediaSource

We can switch back to the pcl5e driver but we had problems with that where long documents would only print half way. The printer has 64mb of RAM, is hooked up to a computer's LPT1 port. We are using the pserver for netware where you print to queues (q1, q2, etc). I've seen the document already on how to troubleshoot. Are these the only options? Thanks.
Don't stress over things you can't control and control the things that cause you stress.

Dan,
Can't take the credit because I saw a fix posted here. I had the same error message on a HPLJ2100. Replacing cable resolved problem. Worth a try for your HP9000.
