Default HP LaserJet 4250n bizarre behavior

It prints even pages first then odd pages. Or is it odd pages then even pages...Not only that, the even pages are turned 180 degrees from the odd pages. How do I get this back to normal? I have tried using the 4350 driver and the 4250 driver with no change so I am guessing it is something in a setting somewhere. The PC's all run XP Pro. And of course, "It worked fine before and it just started doing it"

I think you'd better uninstall the diver of your HP printer and then install again.
Have a try.

OK I have tried disabling auto duplexing, using a PCL 5e driver, and disabling mopier mode. No luck. I now get the following error:


PCL XL error
Subsystem: KERNEL
Error: IllegalOperatorSequence
Operator: EndChar
Position: 2558

WTF? Is it possibly a network card problem or firmware issue??

Is it a network printer? if not I doubt it would be a network problem, Has anyone used it other than you recently? I would see if there is a new Firmware driver out there and see if it works.

Problem solved. Downloaded a different PCL 5e driver from HP (the one I had was really old) and along with the other changes it works. Now if they can just leave it alone...

And yes it is a network printer.

Edit: here's where I got my answer.
IT Resource Center forums - LaserJet 4250n prints even pages then odd pages
