Printer drivers

When you installed the device software, you selected one of the following printer drivers:

PCL 6 driver (default driver): Use the PCL 6 driver to take full advantage of the device
features. Unless complete backward compatibility with previous printer control language
(PCL) drivers or older printers is necessary, the PCL 6 driver is recommended.

PCL 5e driver: Use the PCL 5e driver if you need print results to look consistent with those
from older HP LaserJet printers. Certain features (FastRes 1200 and 300 dpi) are not available
in this driver. (Do not use the PCL 5e driver that is provided with this device with older

PS driver: Use the PostScript® (PS) driver for compatibility with PS needs. Certain features
(manual duplexing, printing booklets, watermarks, and printing more than four pages per
sheet) are not available with this driver.


The device automatically switches between PS emulation and PCL printer languages
depending on the driver that you have selected. The PS emulation emulates Adobe®
PostScript Level 2. For information about gaining access to your printer driver see
