HP 1055 Plotters will not print using PCL drivers

We have two HP 1055 Plotters and they will not print using any PCL driver.  The PS works fine but it takes longer then what the PCL drivers use to.  We installed a new print server, new HP 1055 PCL drivers and still have the same issue on both plotters.  How can we get these plotters to use the HP 1055 drivers without an issue?

I tried contacting them in a chat and they will not help because they say HP does not cover this model anymore.

Only PS drivers work and the PCL drivers fail even after reloading.

Do you think the XP 1055 PCL drivers would be better?
