If you’ve followed our instructions in this article about how to fix print spooler problems with your HP Laserjet P2055, then your printer should be properly installed, and you should be familiar with the different methods for fixing common print errors. However, if you are noticing that some print jobs are being printed with an extra page, then you may need to make further adjustments to your printer settings. Specifically, if these extra pages include a strange address that includes the phrase get /devmgmt/discoverytree.xml http/1.1, then your printer has its’ status notifications enabled. Fortunately this is not indicative of any serious problems, and the settings can quickly be adjusted from the P2055’s Printer Properties menu.
