Various HP LaserJet: Printer Control Language (PCL) to help to increase the left margin

Escape sequences the PCL (GUE, printer reset, set left offset, move the horizontal slider) in the separator page will be almost certainly ignored if (as is likely) your application is the use of standard Windows printer driver to generate the print job, because orders generated:

  • Will begin with another sequence of LSE, which resets the default power values (so too riding all the separator page settings).
  • Will contain the size of the page selection and definition of margin sequences as requested by the calling application.

  • PSC 2510 double prints the left margin - transport stops

    Hi, my 2510 double print the left margin so as to look as if the letters are ghosts, now it started to leave a wide width of letters about an inch from the left margin. At the same time, he will start a print job only to have the transport stop about 1/4 of the way, I have manually position the carriage to the position of Park - the menu says so is printing - it is not. I unplug the AC for 10 seconds and when I reconnect the printer resets and continues its merry way, until at the latest.  Thank you Kent

    You probably have a buildup of ink on the MICR band used by the printer to tell where is the transport.  Gently clean the Strip as shown here.  Don't forget to respect the warnings, if you do not you may damage the delicate MICR band.

  • Vertical line on the left margin of all pages printed (1200 HP)


    Everything I print, on some paper, a vertical line scraggly appears in the left margin area. In my view, it is ink that has leached out, but I don't know where or how clean it. Ink cartridge seems solid. TIA and Happy New Year.


    Take a look at your fuser unit, could be something wrong with that.  Make sure you leave cool before you go poking in there.  If this isn't the case, it might be a mark on your imaging drum.

  • OfficeJet 6500 e709: prints w / scale on the left margin and does not print right side of the page

    HP trouble shoot said there is nothing wrong and test page prints fine.  Then back to the problem so try to print.

    HI @philg2,

    I see your thoughts produce a wide margin left and right of the page is cut off. What program are you printing from, and this occurs when you print from all programs or just a particular program?

    I see your post that this is not happening when you print a test page, so I think the problem is somehow related to the driver or program that you use. Let's start with the HP print and Scan Doctor is a free utility (tool) that allows to quickly resolve problems printing, scanning and connectivity, including but not limited to:

    • Connectivity:

      USB: Check that the USB connection from your computer to the HP product works properly.

  • Printed Web page shows only about 20% of the page, centered

    Never had a problem, all of a sudden I can't print a Web page. Instead of everything on the page, it displays only about 20% of the horizontal line, from the left margin. the printed area is centered on the paper. In addition, the amount that is printed extends over five pages, when normally I could print the Web page on a single sheet. Maybe it's the best description printed looks as if the printer thinks the paper is 2.5 x 4 inches. Check the paper size, margins, etc..

    You check in properties of this printer from Firefox?

    Outlook Express uses the same as Internet Explorer print engine.

  • LaserJet p3015: print with the printer driver universal pcl 5 of Collator

    We use the universal PCL 5 driver for printing on a Windows 2008 R2 file and server to our printers laserjet printing network.  Our enterprise application doesn't have a way to bring together several pages together, so this will be done by the printer driver and settings.  However, I don't see an option to collect pages in the printer settings.  Is this possible with the PCL 5 UPD or it will need to be upgraded to achieve?

    As I mentioned in my previous answer, most small LaserJet printers will not print collate.

    They will just print a copy, or (as your symptoms seem to suggest) just ignore the Collate setting.

    This is because the true ranking of multiple copy requires the use of Mopier Mode, which in turn requires the availability of a hard disk of the printer - printers in most small do not have a mounted hard drive.

    To get the same effect as the standings, drivers for these printers will send multiple copies of the print job in the same connection.

    But they do if the driver configuration indicates that Mopier Mode is activated, so you must ensure that the configuration shows that it is disabled.

  • HP LaserJet 500 color M551 PCL: printer HP LaserJet 500 color M551 PCL6

    We had our color HP LaserJet 500 M551 PCL6 for a couple of years.  It has worked very well.  For the last two months, it keeps going offline (depending on the driver on the client PC).  He is in fact under tension and most when he's awake.  I was not able to find all the parameters that will keep online via the network.  I logged into the printer to see if I could find all the parameters.  The only thing I found was to tell him to wake up at 7:00 in the hope that it would help connectivity.  It helped, but it has not cured the problem.  I can ping any of the workstations, but they cannot print on it intermmitantly.  We use the Windows7 PC.

    I wonder about the network card in the printer?  I each printer set up a connection direct tcip (as this has always been the freest badly to connect to printers method).

    Only two options work most of the time to get the user online to the printer.  One is to turn off the printer and restart it, then most of the PC will recognize.  The other method is to remove the printer from the PC and reinstall the print driver, which works so far.  When re install the printer driver it auto detects the printer, but not as much as usual is discovered in the process.  Usually, I have to tell him that he has a jetdirect card, etc..  He then makes me to find the driver in it have list under HP disc.  It lasts longer that the other HP printers usually do.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Your information has led me to the solution (I think).  We use a static IP addressing scheme.  DNS servers had changed so much since this printer has been installed.  I corrected them on the printer and wait that will correct the problem.

  • Driver for HP Color LaserJet MFP Pro M PCL 6

    64-bit driver for HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M477 PCL 6: I have one of these printers, which is able to print double-sided automatically.  The new driver (64-bit) will not accept when I switched to a new laptop, manual duplex printing.  Does anyone else have this problem?  I updated the driver, but the problem persists.

    I managed to find the solution... it is a lot harder than I imagined composed I don't remember clearly how I found it.  But I think it's what you do... Use the control panel to get to the devices and printers, right-click for properties of the printer, then select device settings, then select installed in the duplex unit.  Yes... complicated.  How the average dumb guy like me never to solve such a problem?
