问题:Last page does not eject from printer

分类标签:高速行式打印机设备

Last page does not eject from printer, and interface is Ethernet using the PrintNet adapter.

问题解答

Possible Cause

Job could be missing a final ‘form feed’ command.

Recommended Solution

Add a form feed using the ‘trailer’ feature.

The PrintNet adapter has eight data ports, 9100 through 9107. Each port has a “destination” (or “queue”), and each destination has a “model”. By default, port 9100 is assigned destination/queue name “d1prn” and model “m1”.

The model defines how the print job will be processed as it passes through to the printer. Models are a set of filters that can be used to modify the print data stream.

The model can be assigned a “trailer” consisting of a form feed. When the Ethernet port closes, a form feed will be issued and the print job will eject paper to the next top-of-form.

It is easy to assign a form feed with a web browser. Using telnet, a complex string of hex bytes or variables can be programmed and documented.

METHOD 1 – browser:

  1. Log into the NIC using a web browser. The web address is the IP of the NIC.
  2. Select ‘Configuration’ and log in.
  3. The user name is ‘root’, without the quotes, in lower case.
  4. The password is blank; just ignore the field.
  5. Select ‘Print Model’.
  6. Verify the model (“m1” is the default model for port 9100)
  7. Pick the ‘formfeed’ trailer from the pull-down list. NOTE: Erase the trailer by setting all trailer values to NULL at this point.
  8. Press the ‘Submit’ button at the bottom of the page.
  9. Select ‘System’ menu function at the top of the page.
  10. Press ‘Reboot’ button. Indicate that you are sure by pressing ‘Yes’.

METHOD 2 – telnet:

[Note: Type the values in single quotes, not the quotes themselves, and press Enter.]

  1. Open a telnet session with the NIC.
  2. Open a DOS window (cmd.com) and/or run telnet using the IP address of the NIC.
  3. Login name is ‘root’ in lower case, password is empty (Enter key only).
  4. To see the current trailer for model m1, type ‘list model m1’.
  5. To set a trailer of “form feed” for model m1, type ‘set model m1 trailer 0x0c’. 0x0c is the numerial value of a form feed character. “Form feed” is also pre-defined as variable $FF, so you could type ‘set model m1 trailer $FF’.
  6. To clear the trailer for m1, type ‘set model m1 trailer’.
  7. After making all changes, type ‘save’ then type ‘reset’.
  8. The NIC will reset and the printer will cycle power.
