The Question is:
when we had just Hp II or III printers, the device control library text files
with the escape sequences were encapsulated by ascii 144 before the sequence
and an ascii 156 at the end of the sequence. This eliminated the annoying
Blank Page before each r
eport printed from the LAT printer queue. Now I'm running Hp 4's through the
HP4050 and using Telnet printing via IP. I now get the blank pages again
and the encapsulation characters are in the text modules in the device control
library. I've been
tinkering with these text modules and cannot eliminate the blank page no matter
what I try. Do you know how to eliminate the preceeding blank page on Telnet
Ip queues to Hp IV and higher model printers? We toss out as many as 2000
pages a day because
of this problem. Reusing the paper causes jams to they don't.
Anything you can suggest would be greatly appreciated.
The Answer is :
Please see topic 1020 here in Ask The Wizard for information on
handling various printer-related problems.
The usual approach for printing to specific third-party printers
involves the use of DCPS. To ensure function, printers not supported
by DCPS can require printer-specific configuration and testing -- the
DCPS package provides this testing for specific third-party printers.
Please contact your printer vendor for assistance.
