HP laserjet 5 changing fonts

By inbox ·
When the HP laserjet hasn't been used in a while "cold" the first page out prints in what appears to be wingding font instead of tahoma or like. The PC is running on XP. New drivers have been installed and yet this problem continues to happen. Any explanation?

This sounds like a bad parallel printer cable. When garbage is sent to the printer, the unfinished page containing the garbage will sit there waiting for the rest to come. When the first real page is sent after sitting for a while collecting garbage, voila!! The first page contains garbage.

Post back and let us know what the problem turned out to be.
