9050N - PCL XL Error:

Sending a multipage document to the HP 9050N printer results in PCL XL errors. I sent a 504 page report and it printed 125 pages before getting the following error:

PCL XL error

Error: MissingData
Operator: 0xd3
Position: 53114

Sent pages 126 - 504 and it printed 126-407, same error different operator and position numbers; sent the remaining pages 407 - 504, printed to page 464, same error. Printed the remaining pages 406-504 and it completed without the error.

And then we tried to send a 150 page .pdf file and it printed 50 pages before the error occured. The remaining pages are jibberish.

Could anyone please let me know what needs to be done to correct it. This error did not occur previously, so I know it can print files of up to 500 pages. Right now I don't know why it is doing this.

--I have installed the Postscript driver, and it has removed the gibberish text which had appeared along the top of the last page. It still will not print the entire document though. Any assistance would be great!

I have the same problem but weirdly this only happen on 1 PC (out of approximate 80), my error is IllegalOperatorSequence.


I just see info to update the to HP universal print driver (recommend using of PCL5) might solve this problem, i hope this can help both of us.

Updating to pcl5 driver instead of pcl6 will solve the issue. pcl xl errors only occur with pcl6 and do not occur with pcl5.

The error you are seeing is because all data is not coming to the printer. You can check your network. Or if you network data viewer like  wireshark and see if the printer is receiving all the data
