HP LaserJet problems

Does anyone have any ideas on whats going on and how to
fix the following problem?
I have a 3640 running 7.1 which is connected to a
HP LaserJet series II printer and when I do a Hardcopy
File I get a document that has funny characters
(ie something like a 1/2 sized l with an accent over it)
where blank lines should be. Everything else in the file
(execpt EOF) prints out ok.
The printer object in the namespace has the following settings:
Interface Options: UNIT 1 BAUD 9600 PARITY NIL
I saw a similar problem at a customer site. A small amount of investigation
showed that even though the serial stream attempts to convert characters to
ascii, it isn't (always) succeeding. The software involved is significantly
improved in 7.2, though I haven't had access to an HP Laserjet series II
printer and 7.2 at the same time to verify that it actually works in 7.2.
Thanks for any help,
