    Interesting.  My guess is that you are trying to use either the PPD from the HP drivers that are not supported or that the PPD has become corrupted.  I would recommend you do the following:


    1.  Go to System Preferences -> Print & Scan and delete the DesignJet 120nr printer that is installed.


    2.  Go to /Library/Printers/PPDs/Contents/Resources (that is the Library at the root of the hard drive).  Delete any PPD for the DesignJet 120 you find.


    3.  Download a fresh copy of the PPD with this link.


    4.  Open the PPD with a text editor and remove the line

    *cupsFilter:     "application/vnd.cups-pdf 0 foomatic-rip"


    5.  Save the file and place it in the folder /Library/Printers/PPDs/Contents/Resources


    6.  Go back to System Preferences -> Print & Scan and add the DesignJet 120nr printer.  When you add the printer, choose the model that says "HP DesignJet 120 Foomatic/cdnj500 (recommended)".


    Try finding the options for Paper Feed and then Roll Paper.


    Let us know how things go.
