PCL XL Error

I have an HP 4250 printer attached to a network and used as a network printer.

 

Everytime I send a job to print, the printer will not start until I press the manual feed button.  Then it will print but will give me an extra page with the following error.

 

PCL XL error

 

                         Warning: IllegalMediaSource

 

How do I fix when I run it from an XP computer.

PCL XL Error

The MediaSource attribute within PCL XL is a coded identifier for the required source paper (media) tray.

 

The IllegalMediaSource warning indicates that "The value for MediaSource is out of range for the current device or device configuration".

 

This perhaps implies one or more of the following:

 

  • An unavailable paper tray has been selected via the Print Properties or Preferences dialogue.
  • The wrong printer driver is being used.
  • There is a fault in the printer driver.
