I use XP clients and the printserver is an NT server. On the net is "HP 4000", "HP 4050" and "HP 2200". All clients can print pdf files to the 4050 and 2200 printers, but the 4000 fills all pages with oöÖO¨0s.

What is wrong ?

Are you using a PCL6 or PCL5e driver on the HP4000?

I would still recommend trying a PCL5e driver. Also, do you have problems printing any other type documents to the printer?

Try changing the printer driver to a HP4+. This is a very stable driver and it may correct the problem. Let me know.

Hi Gtrist

Il give you the points - even thou I couldnt really use any of your suggestions. - The HP4+ driver didnt work at all.

I have installed a new printerdriver on the printerserver, and now it works. - I was to scared in the beginning to touch the printerserver, but at last I had to try it.
