Hp HP LaserJet 5L

HP5L panel lights

When paper is placed in either input slot, the "data" light is ON, and the "ready" light BLINKS. When I sent a document to print, the first sheet prints ASCI? characters (small circles with a dot in the middle), and the second sheet prints the document OK. It printed OK yesterday - nothing has changed. I've removed the driver & installed the latest (lj622en)from the HP website - it doesn't help. I've turned the printer off then on - doesn't help. My OS is Win98.
