I can confirm this printing from Google Maps. It shows the black bands between the directions rows.

Changed in hplip:

The HP printer driver prints using PCL. I changed the driver to be a "Generic Postscript Printer" and it works fine.

Thanks Ill try that!

Further testing reveals: the CP1510 Postscript driver also works and is obviously a much better match.

It seems the main bug here is that the CP1510 Postscript driver doesn't show up under the more-specific CP1518ni listing, where the PCL one does.

I have this problem of black bands with both a CP3505 printer and a CM1312nfi MFP using the hpcups driver.

I should add: There is no postscript alternative for either of those printers (CP3505, CM1312nfi) , they appear to be PCL only.
