Which of the printer data streams are you expecting? If it's PCL 3, you'll
need to tell the configuration not to attempt host print transform. Uncheck
the box and try the printer again.

Subject: i Access and HP Deskjet 2540 Printer

We have a number of new HP Deskjet 2450 printers attached to PC's via USB.
These printers work well when printing from Windows 7 Pro. We seem to be
unable to get i Access to print to them.

We've created a printer in i Access following IBM's recommendations (

When we run a report on our i system, we see it go into the outq and then
into the queue on the Windows machine. After that , it's gone. We can see
the light on the printer blink a bit, but no printing action. We've tried
different reports.

We've tried a large number of the configuration options available in the
printer setup in i Access, but no luck thus far. i Access is at the latest
version with the most recent PTF's applied. Windows 7 is also up to date.

Anyone have any experience getting one of these printers to work?
