HP LaserJet Printers Print PCL XL Error, Warning: IllegalMediaSource Message !

PCL XL Error
Warning: IllegalMediaSource

Received feedback from users complaining that they keep receiving above message when sent print to HP printers.
Problem hits regardless of any Windows PCs.


1) After you have sent print to the printer, click the Properties button (beside the printer name) from the pop up box,

2) Click on the Paper/Quality tab,

3) On the Paper Source, make sure you select the right Tray from the drop down box.

The error will occurs when Paper Source is set to "Automatically Select".

Above steps will put you away from the error massage forever !

Enjoy !

I wasn't sure this would work since the original post was 3 years old. I have spent several hours trying to figure out what is causing this on with the printer I just installed. This was the trick. All fixed! Thank You!
