WC5745 using Mackinney JQP

Jump to solution

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.

 

Thanks.

Best answer:

 

Full PDL reference guide is here in pdf format

 

Short answer:


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.

Hi Joe,

 

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               

 

Thanks,

 

Tom

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
