    Accepted Solution

    Looks like a fault with the Postscript driver. Download and install the PCL driver from the HP website:

    Assisted Solution

    The PCL driver may have to emulate postscriipt level 3.
    You could also ask whoever generated the file to resave it in postscript level 1 or 2 or even PCX if that works for you. Few PCL drivers are postscript level 3 compatible.

    Assisted Solution

    The HP1220c device (now discontinued) supports the PCL3 language, but not PostScript.

    To print PostScript files on the device, these have to be pre-processed first - see for details.
