Hp HP LaserJet 4L

LaserJet 4L Prints ASCII/Hex from JetDirect 170x

My LaserJet 4L was working fine until I moved it to my new office. Now it won't print properly. When I print a .pdf or .odt document it comes out in ASCII or Hex. The JetDirect 170X network server is how it's connected to the computer. I've tried reseting both the JetDirect and the LaserJet back to factory defaults but still the same result. I also reset the PDL on the JetDirect to PostScript (which I understand to be the correct setting for the LaserJet 4L)

Any ideas what is causing the problem.

4L printers don't understand postscript. You need a 4ML version. Surprised there is still one being used since you can only use refill toner and those are hard to find
