I solved ALL my printing problems for both PCL5/6 with the "latest" hplip 
driver (hplip-1.6.10.tar.gz) from http://hplip.sourceforge.net or 

If you decide to install it, first remove ANY instances of hpijs* or older 
versions of hplip AND read the README files :o)

<tears of joy> I connect wireless, scan, copy, fax, etc.</tears of joy>
