    It's USB, After installing tghe seiko label printers, the HP 4050 prints:

     PCL XL error
    Subsystem Kernal
    LVL 12

    Accepted Solution

    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

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

    Or install a network print server onto the HP.
