HP LaserJet 4

Each time I select my HP LaserJet 4 and hit print it prints an initial page with one capital M in the left corner and then proceeds to print the doc perfectly. Any idea how I can eliminate that paper wasting first page?
Are you by chance using a parallel to usb adapter. I have heard of this happening with these and do not have a solution except to maybe turn off bi-direction printing in the driver. If just a plain parallel cable going to a parallel port on the computer, then maybe try a different driver like pcl5 instead of pcl6 or postscipt instead of pcl5.
