Hi, I do mainframe printing support and currently working with one of my end clients to print to a WC5745 using the Mackinney JQP product. Looking for the PCL code that will force the WC5745 to use paper from the bypass printer tray.
Solved! Go to Solution.
PCL = <esc> &l2H
PS = <</MediaPosition 5>> setpagedevice
Answer you never asked for but I supplied it anyway just because:
in CWIS you can go to Properties > Services > Printing > Page Description Languages > PCL and remap the trays as you see fit.
Thanks for your solution. It did do what I wanted.
After putting in the fix I was told by the end users that they actually had legal paper in one of the trays. (Still unclear to me why they indicated they did not have legal paper loaded in a tray orginally).
So, I am back to trying to get the print from JQP to use the legal paper from the tray. The print does print as landscape but it uses standard size paper instead of legal size paper. Any thoughts on what I am doing wrong?
DC X'1B45' RESET
DC X'1B266C3341' LEGAL PAPER
DC X'1B266C314F' LANDSCAPE
Your code appears to be for an HP laser jet, not a Xerox device, so it will omit it and print whatever is the default.
As the PDL reference states: Legal will be formatted as <esc> &l3A assuming PCL 5 or <esc> &l1A for PCL6
Since there is no way to know what tray if they won't tell you has the Legal paper, you have to tray call for auto and hope they are not putting it in the bypass (Tray 5) as it does not get accounted for with auto tray select.
So PCL5 = <esc> &l0H, or PCL6 = <esc> &l1H
