RE: Xerox 5135 drawer select



fixed

My client had the same thing going on with his output tray issue. They're
numbered 0-8 from bottom to top. Trial and error solved the problem for him.

I do not have one of these printers, just a couple of SWAGs.

1) Assuming this printer is available to Windows users, have one of them
try printing from tray 3. Just to insure there's no hardware issue.
Pardon of you've already done this.

2) I use FormSprint on my System i. Many years ago, their support once
told me that tray <whatever> isn't always tray <whatever>. In an extreme
case, they had a customer with a printer that, for FormSprint to select
tray 2 from the System i, they actually had to tell it tray 7. Even though
it only had 2 trays. No, I don't remember what brand printer they had. I
have used IBM, Ricoh, and HP printers with FormSprint and never ran into
that.

Good luck.

I have made considerable progress, but have hit a wall.

I downloaded a reference to PCL. Under Paper (Media) Source, I saw
the code to explain why the bypass tray was being used. The WSCST had
this for DRAWER=PAPER:
DATA = '1B266C3248'X.

The second from the right hex chars x'32' command "Feed paper from
manual input".

I changed that to 31. Now, draws from drawer 1. At the bottom of the
codes for paper source is this entry:

20 -39 High Capacity Input (HCI) Trays 2-21.

Since I need tray 3, it seemed simple. If tray 2 is 20, then tray 3 must
be 21.

So, I converted 21 (assumed decimal, based on 32 being ASCII value of
2 for manual input) to 15.

That didn't work. Printer rejected that sequence.

So, question is (feels like snatching defeat from the jaws of
victory), what goes into that position?

I know this is not an IBM issue. I found another 5135 that they also
would very much like to use tray 3. I'm just not understanding what
that value should be.

John,

I see you have been back & forth on the config so pardon me if you've
already
done these steps:
Obviously (imho) if this 5135 pulls plain paper from drawer 3, and other
5135's do not,
then that's an override in the control panel of the printer. (I had a
similar issue
with a Ricoh recently-all the same except 1).
Therefore your wscst needs to treat a request from drawer 1 with the
value
of drawer 3.
(btw - did you mention how the other 5135's configured on the system?

Your phrase "To create the WSCST, I used an existing WSCST. The
existing
one
forced portrait, which was also what was requested in this area." brings
questions..

The WSCST needs to be created from the same mfrtypmdl as your devd. So
if *LEXOPTRAT is mfrtypmdl, then do the rtvwscst command to get the base
source for that model to then modify.. You will most likely never be
successful with
a lexoptrat devd and a hp4 wscst.(pardon me if you already have this
straight)

The IBM doc Information on Printers from Xerox is your friend


http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas1cc6ee2005999a36d862569c100
796da4
For WorkCentre 5135
*mfrtypmdl = *lexoptrat or *hp4 (with the corresponding *wscst
LPR = Y
PJL = N (so you cannot use the IBMPJLDRV or HPPJLDRV...
SNMP=Y - use IBMSNMPDRV
IPP = N

This doc from IBM snmp connections read the paragraph on Xerox printers


http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas194e73364f979e3888625690300
71c398
it describes verifying the snmp port is enabled on the printer .
This could be why prev snmp attempt went to PND.

Finally - IBM doc "Drawer Redirection for Xerox Document Centre
Printers"


https://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas188991fbe614557e686256bcd
0055ed32
read it all - has both an old & new way to do drawer 3...

And another in case your WorkCentre Xerox is diff than "Document Centre"


https://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=nas1bbf048cc51f9d5b8c1256acd
00555574
Drawer Redirection for HP PCL5 compatible printers (use the *HP4
mfrtypmdl
it's very imformative on the issues.

Good luck,

No. We have other 5135s here. They work. This one is odd that the
plain paper is in drawer 3. But, otherwise, nothing unusual. I keep
thinking there is something odd about the specific printer. The
on-site Xerox rep says it is (his words, not mine) "an AS/400 issue".
I just wanted to make sure I had tried everything possible so he can't
blame it on "the AS/400". I can't imagine what else could be done,
thus my asking the gurus. Changing to LEXOPTRAT was a worthwhile
change. I wish the results had been different. (Definition of
insanity: do the same thing multiple times expecting different
results). Xerox guy won't be back until Monday.

John,

Have you called IBM? I got to a young lady the other day who was
relatively
helpful. If you call after 2 PM, you'll very likely get connected to
Boulder
instead of Delhi.

Just tried IBMPJLDRV HPPJLDRV. and IBMIPPDRV. ALL resulted in a
spool file status of PND, finally resulting in "Remote device rejected
an attempt..." I did not try NETSTNDRV.
