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

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.

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 http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=bpd50017&locale=en_US&taskId=101&prodSeriesId=25521&prodTypeId=18972 for details.
