      SNMP Text values are shown as HEXA values when contains non-english characters (non ASCII7 I suppose)
      Example:
      SNMP Message gathered from printer "imprimiendo página 1/1..."  (contains "á") is shown as HEXA values. 

       

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Create new SNMP item type TEXT in host for, lets say, OID 1.3.6.1.2.1.43.16.5.1.2.1.1
      2. get value that has non english character
      3. See value on Latest data for host

      Result:
      When text have a non english character is shown as HEXA values instead of TEXT 

      Expected:
      ASCII Text should be shown always as text (NO HEXA values)
