Try
  • $img->Set(magick=>'PCL');
To set the blob format to PCL (required by the HP laserjet). If you have a Postscript module in your printer you can set the magick to PS.

Do you have a color printer? If not you'll need to produce black/white PCL.

You can say
  • $img->Set(type=>'bilevel');
This tells ImageMagick to produce black/white PCL.

ImageMagick only generates black and white and color PCL. Now of course color PCL can be grayscale as well but your printer can not handle the more advanced PCL instructions. You may need to find another software package to solve your printing problem.
