I don't know about the 2200D, but my Laserjet 5500dtn has 90 pcl
fonts and 80 ps fonts built-in. Look in your printer's config and see
if you can print a font list.
The garbage you are printing sounds very much like a configuration
problem. Are you running CUPS? There appears to be a driver in
CUPS for your printer. Try to adjust those settings (like pre-filter, etc)
and use the HP driver if available.
