RE: WSCST object with HP5si problems

fixed

I did find a partial fix for this problem after calling IBM.  For the
Manufacture model I was stating *WSCST.  IBM directed me to use the
model number here because when you use *WSCST it thinks the printer is a
line printer.  I wasn't aware that you could specify a WSCST without
using *WSCST in the model number, but it worked great.

Now the only problem is figuring out how to fix the LPI or line spacing.
But, someone is on the phone with IBM right now.

        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).
