HP Printers - Continuous Pages of Strange or Garbled Characters Print in Windows

This document is for HP printers that are set up to print from computers using Windows.
Communication issues between a computer running a Windows operating system and your HP printer might result in pages of garbled text that look like gibberish, or nonsense, or the letters could be scrambled. The text might include a partial page or a full page of random or unrecognizable letters and numbers. This issue is not related to ink or print quality. Do not perform common print quality troubleshooting steps, such as cleaning the printheads.
