HP LaserJet 4 Plus: error W2 Invalid Pers by m7e3r13 (7/19/04 10:09 AM) reply + / -
Im running mac os 10.3.4 and trying to print with an HP LaserJet 4 Plus via appletalk...I can communicate with the printer through a jetdirect 300x, but when i try to print something, the printer's interface immediately gives me error W2 Invalid Pers.
I've done a little research on the error, but i can't find a way to fix it.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

If your Laserjet 4 Plus doesn't have the Postscript module installed, you will see this error msg.

Instead of answering this often asked question, I'm going to suggest you type your query into the site search engine and then you can read the responses and you can figure it out for yourself.

Dear Anonymous
Not being a guru I was frustrated by downloading a driver from the MicroSoft site that didn't work and gave the error message discussed here. Your mail suggestion and link worked a treat and saved me prodigious amounts of heartburn. I'm very, very thankful to you Mate.

Mac OS X users: simply install and use the Gutenprint driver for your printer. Download it here:

Generic

PCL 4 Printer

Etc,,,,,,,,,,,

No more "W2 Invalid Pers" or "Overflow" message !!

Not on a MAC. You need the postscript simm along with i believe an extra 4 more meg of ram for the 4 plus to work on a MAC. Contact Moe@fixyourownprinter.com as I am sure he has what you need in stock and a reasonable cost.

Yep it works on the iMac as well :)
