HelloCustomerand thanks for using justanswer.com On the printer, Under Job menu items or printer menu. Some HP printers have in printer setup have a choice between auto,postscript or pcl.If you do not see that choice then we'll assume it is just PCL already. Let me know if this fixes the error.
Contact [emailprotected] as I am sure he has what you need in stock and a reasonable cost. This is a Post Script driver and not the right one so, of course the error appears. (I had at first not seen the correct driver in the list!) After using the correct driver for only Laserjet 4...no problem! by jon on Aug 4, 2004 at 10:03pm Add comment Please sign in to comment 0 i have a dell computer and hooked a HP Laserjet 4 printer and got this message. 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.

Respond to this 0 I dont know but if it means invalid personality which I suspect it does, could it perhaps mean that there is a postscript simm installed that doesnt belong to this printer.If you open the side door that contains the memory chips (you have to take off the side coverfirst) is there a chip in it (other than a mere memory chip) and what is the serial no on it?Ian by unknown on Jul 23, 2003 at 9:17am Add comment Please sign in to comment 0 The way I understand the "W2 INVALID PERS" message is that a job sent to the printer is unable to print it, because it doesn't have the correct personality, to do so.
