HP Printers and Blank Pages? (see 1020)

» close window

The Question is:

I have a HP 8000 printer. I print to it from VMS.
I am using multinet TCP/IP to communicate with it.
There is no problem printing to the printer, but there are a few problems when printing:
1. There is a blank page between each page of a job which is  sent to the printer.
2. There is a flag page in the end of the job, which I want to cancel (the parameter /noflag doesn't help).
3. only half of the page is filled with data, the rest is empty, and I need a full page to be printed.
The escape sequnce I use is:
can you please answer my questions? I tried many other escape sequences which don't help solve these problems.
(by the way, the language which is printed is hebrew).
thank you.

The Answer is :

  Please start with topic 1020 for a discussion of HP printers
  and blank pages.
  Please contact Process for assistance with MultiNet.
  Please contact HP if your HP LaserJet 8000 series firmware is
  not at the "19980610 MB4.28" revision, or later.
