Canon MF8200C default password…

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/08/13

I needed to figure out what was wrong with a Canon MF8200C UFRII LT XPS.

Luckily, this still worked for administrator access [WayBackDefault admin password for Canon Multifunction Printers:

Setting the language of HP Solution Center needs a full uninstall/install cycle *and* the non-Unicode Windows Language to be set

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/08/12

I can imagine why some people hate the HP Solution Center software: it’s a dork on the language front and not even Unicode-aware.

You cannot set the language form inside it. The language is fixed at install time. You’d think it would take the users language settings for that. But it doesn’t: it takes the users non-Unicode language setting for it. Which – of course – you cannot find when searching in the control panel for Language (or Dutch Taal) you get there by searching for Region (or Dutch Regio).

This succeeds:

It fails when it is set to:

HP Color LaserJet 9500HDN and stock Windows 8.1 x64 drivers: PCL XL error Warning: IllegalMediaSource – via: Server Fault

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/20

HP Printers, PCL6 and drivers are always a fight to get right.

In this case the Microsoft stock Windows 8.1 x64 drivers always result in my HP LaserJet 9500 HDN printing a page like this from the same tray the last print job ran:

PCL XL error

        Warning: IllegalMediaSource

I’ve seen similar results with other Windows, printer and driver combinations (not limited to Microsoft drivers, but always PCL related), but never knew the solution.

Reading the answer, I totally recognise it: always some form of PCL6 driver was involved, and switching to PostScript solved it.

Note that there are three varieties of the HP Universal Print Driver for Windows:

  • PCL5
  • PCL6
  • PostScript

So now I know to always install the first and the last (:
