Re: why does my deskjet 3070a printer print gobbledygook. windows XP

Printing gobbledygook ( looks like foreign language with symbols and mixed up letters) appeared when printing a large number of pages, (32) in one go. It started in the middle of printing on several occasions only stopping each time by switching off the printer and restarting it. It has not happened again during normal printing sessions with a small number of pages. Thank you for your assistance.

I actually found a better article that meets your description much better.
