This is a web page of xerox support docs - and of course there is no single one
with a easy to search title for you.
http://www.office.xerox.com/support/dctips/dc_print.html
This pretty old - 2004 - but it's title is "AS/400 Paper Tray Selection" - it has WorkCentre Pro 65 hex strings

This is more recent - PDL Reference Gu7ide WorkCentre 5222/5225/5230 (there isn't one for 5135/5150)

AS/400 Raw TCP/IP Printing to Port 9100 - snmp setup

good luck

Subject: Re: Xerox 5135 drawer select


I did not see 5135 listed on either of the two tables. I tried 3231
from one table and 33 from the other. Both were ignored by the 5135.

I then called Xerox. A bit frustrating. I was emailed a document on
how to set the tray priority. From what I have read, the local Xerox
service rep set the bypass tray as highest priority (lowest number).
It gets weirder. I can access the printer using a browser. I can log
on as an administrator - since Xerox gave me the user name and
password. But, and Xerox confirms this, the tray priority cannot be
viewed or changed using a browser. So, I went to the printer and
attempted to log in as I had done from my office. Can't get in. I
have emailed our on-site Xerox person.

This is Monday, apparently.

John,

I think you are trying to figure out something generic when Xerox is anything but generic.
In the doc I sent in prev post, IBM-Drawer Redirectionfor HP PCL5 Compatible Printers,
the section on Paper Source Controls for Xerox Printers has two sets of hex codes, each set selected models,
and other than drawer 1, they are not the same hex for similar drawer# (drawer 3 in models 220,230,332, etc
not same as drawer 3 in models 240,255,265, etc).
You need to find the hex value for the drawers in a 5135 (or if you are lucky, the "WorkCentre" printers.
btw... drawer 3 in the 240,255, etc set is 1B266C323348 (an extra character).

I am looking at the WSCST. Friday, I actually did try your
suggestion. It went back to the bypass tray. I had hoped that I had
not tried this.

Other details: System driver program is IBMSNMPDRV, and MFRTYPMDL is
*LEXOPTRAT.

I did have drawer select for drawer one same as drawer 3. I removed
that, recompiled, stopped writer, varied off and on the device,
started writer, and ...same result.

Any other suggestions?
