Mary,

Take a look at Chris H.'s reply to this post. Explains it well. http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/bizsupport/questionanswer.do?threadId=1062280

The best resolution other than trying to track down the data corruption point, which can be really difficult, is to just install the PCL5 driver for your printer model. Here's the starting point to get it.

2 items:

Pick the one for your printer model, not the "universal" driver.

Click on the named link for it rather than the Download button. That way you'll have instructions for installing it.

Pat,
Thank you so much!! The download of the pcl 5 driver worked and Chris H's explanation of PCL error was very clear.
