It does work in all other aspects.  I have been playing around with
sending PCL to it with the WSCST.  It still seems to always want to pull
from the 11x17 even though I tell it in the escape codes that when the
printer output is 10cpi to use letter.  Since I tried that it pulls
11x17 and formats the data to fit proportionally to the way it did
on8.5x11 (right side and bottom have large blank areas.)

I guess I will have to call HP to get the printer codes and make sure
I'm sending the right ones.  I haven't yet seen printer codes for the
11x17 tray in their documentation.

        Try hooking the printer to another machine (like a PC) and see
if you
        can print from another tray. I had a devil of a time with a
second hand
        4029 until I realized that it wasn't being wrongly told to feed
only from
        the top tray, but rather than the feed roller in the bottom was
too worn
        to reliably pick up a sheet and the printer was giving up and
trying
        the other tray in desperation. If you can get it to work
properly off a
        PC, then try it again on the AS/400 (without turning the printer
off,
        if possible, to avoid resetting the thing if the PC driver
rearranged
        some settings).
