Ideas anyone please

These are probably printer output destined for a laserjet.
Simply copy them to the printer to see what they might be. (Need a raw queue so
cups
won't try to mess with them).
They could be overlays (forms flashes) which tend to look like a boat load of
PCL code
or images printed to a file. There are PCL viewers available that will try to
make
sense of the file, Perhaps try http://openpcl.sourceforge.net/
