Requested language not available

I am trying to install a laserjet 5 printer. I am able to print a test page but I am getting this message: ready, the requested language not available.

Re: Requested language not available

Perhaps you are trying to print a test page using a PostScript driver, but the printer itself does not have the PiostScript option installed?

Re: Requested language not available

hello,monica

you work with a bad personality (printer language such " postscript")

Check the PERSONALITY item in the Job Menu; if it is notset to AUTO,then your software application may not be ending a command telling the printer to switch to that
personality.

the postscript is available with a postscript card and 12 mb memory syze.

hope this helps

ps: link for user guide for much informations

Re: Requested language not available

I have the same problem as Monica. Installed HP Laserjet 5, ran HPs driver check and it says I have correct driver but still get the "Requested language not available" when trying to print. I do not have a PERSONALITY option on my JOB MENU, only RESOLUTION and I/O TIMEOUT options. This printer worked on my last computer and also works on my son's computer. I have also tried to install driver from WIN XP disk since it is supposed to contain driver for this printer. No success.

Please help!
