Unknown error when printing from Excel to an HP printer

I have discovered a problem when trying to print from Microsoft Excel to an HP Colour Laserjet 4700dtn.

The first sheet/page prints fine but every other page prints the error message below:

PCL XL error

Subsystem: KERNEL
Error: IllegalOperatorSequence
Operator: EndChar
Position: 32

This happens even when printer multiple quantities of the same 1 page.  It prints the first copy fine but the second, third etc prints a blank page with just the above error message printed, but on each page.

I have tried several computers to the same printer and it happens on each computer, but when using a different printer it is fine.

Any suggestions?

I believe that this is one (of many) problems resolved by fixes in Windows XP Service Pack 3.

I guess that equivalent fixes should be available for other Windows versions.
