If I remember correctly the 4050 has a parelle connection if the PC it is connected to has a parralel port as a sort term fix consider using that.

Then again it may be  fails on that port it may be the drivers in general there is a issue as detailed here http://www.planet-winner.com/web2/KB/Front_Office/PCL_XL_Error_when_printing_to_HP_Laserjet_printers.htm

you could try using another older or none PCL driver, possibly PS driver.

Or install a network print server onto the HP.
