Special Features of the

Printer

1

The special features of the printer are as follows:

• It supports PCL5e and PCL6 emulations but only PCL6 drivers are provided.

• Printing can be specified without having to take into consideration the printer language as there is an automatic printer language detection feature.

• High quality printing can be achieved with its 600 dpi laser-style resolution.

Also, it comes with an image-enhancement feature which can increase resolution and produce smooth printing without any notches (equivalent to 2,400 dpi).

• Besides the standard parallel interface, it can be used in a network (multi-protocol) environment through the standard network interface for Ethernet. Or an optional Token Ring interface can be installed.*

1

• Ethernet and Token Ring are mutually exclusive i.e. they cannot be used at the same time.

For details on Ethernet, refer to "2.1.2 Ethernet". For details on Token Ring, refer to the manual of the Token Ring kit, Token Ring Board Installation Guide.

• dpi is the abbreviation of Dot Per Inch and is the unit that indicates the number of dots that can be printed within a one-inch area. It is used as a unit indicating resolution.

• Protocol is the essential communication regulation for carrying out data transmission.

Network Printer

Environments

1

The DP-6000/7000 series printer can be used as a network printer when connected to the network.

The printer supports multiple protocols. As a result, one printer can be shared even over different network environments.

This section describes the different network environments that be setup for the printer.

Windows Networking (for Windows 95/98/Me, Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 2000)

Server Message Block (SMB) is a protocol for sharing files and/or printers on

Windows 95/98/Me, Windows NT 4.0, and Windows 2000. Print data or settings can be sent directly to the printer on the same network (Ethernet interface) without going through the server when SMB is used.

Activate the SMB port on the printer, select the network printer on each of the operating system (OS) (Windows 95/98/Me, Windows NT 4.0, or Windows 2000), and you can print by just installing the printer. You can use NetBEUI and TCP/IP as the transport protocol for SMB.

"Chapter 7 Setup for Windows Networking" when using Windows Networking.

1.5 Network Printer Environments

TCP/IP Direct Print Utility (for Windows 95/98/Me).

The TCP/IP Direct Print Utility is a software which allows print data to be sent directly from a Windows 95/98/Me computer to a printer on the same network

(Ethernet interface) without going through a server.

As the printer supports the TCP/IP (LPD) protocol, the print data can be sent directly and printed from the Windows 95/98/Me computer when using this software. You will need to setup the IP address on the printer and on the Windows 95/98/Me computer.

TCP/IP (for Windows NT 4.0/Windows 2000)

As the printer supports TCP/IP (LPD) protocol, print data can be sent directly and printed from a Windows NT 4.0/Windows 2000 computer. You will have to setup the

IP address on the printer and on the Windows NT 4.0/Windows 2000 computer. And once the printer on the Windows NT 4.0/Windows 2000 computer is shared, you can also print from other Windows NT 4.0/Windows 2000 or Windows 95/98/Me computer on the network.

1.5 Network Printer Environments

AppleTalk (for Macintosh)

As the printer supports AppleTalk protocol, you can print from Macintosh using

EtherTalk.

When using EtherTalk port, refer to the manuals that come with the optional PostScript software kit.

1.5 Network Printer Environments

Internet printing

The printer supports Internet Printing Protocol (IPP). And if Windows 2000 is installed, with the client software needed to output to an IPP printer (IPP port monitor), you can specify the printer supporting IPP from

Add Printer

in the control panel. With this IPP, you can print to a far away printer through the internet or an intranet.

"Chapter 9 Using Internet Printing Protocol"

Token Ring

The printer supports Token Ring. When the printer is installed with the optional interface port for Token Ring, you can use the printer in a network environment with

NetWare or TCP/IP existing alone or together.

When the interface port for Token Ring is installed, the Ethernet interface cannot be used.

Also, the items that can be set are also different. When Token Ring is used, refer to the manuals that come with the Token Ring kit. The Token Ring port may not be available.

Please see your Panasonic Authorized representative for details.

• With LPD, you can store the print data output from the application in the spool file of the printer temporarily to be processed for printing. Set the spool mode by using the LPD spool of the receive buffer capacity.

Spool mode:

The mode which stores print data output from the application in the spool file of the printer temporarily to be processed for printing. You can choose to save the spool file in either the RAM disk which uses the printer memory or the hard disk connected to the printer. As the processing of print data after spooling will be done in the printer, the application in the client is released sooner. Requests from multiple clients can be processed at the same time.

Non spool mode:

The mode which processes printing while the print data output from the application is being received by the printer. When the printer is processing printing request from a client, printing request from other clients cannot be received.

1.8.2

Automatic Power Saver Mode

Even when the "Power Saver (On/Off)" button is not pressed, the machine will automatically switch to a waiting mode if it is left switched on without being used for a certain period of time. This is called the Auto Power Saver mode which consists of the following two modes:

• Low Power Mode: the state where the temperature of the heater is lowered.

• Sleep Mode: the state where the power of the heater is off and power can be saved most.

The machine will automatically enter the Low Power Mode after a certain period of time and then switch to the Sleep mode after another lapse of time. During these two modes, the display will become completely black and the Power Saver (On/Off) button lit.

Once the lit "Power Saver (On/Off)" button is pressed, it will become unlit and the power saver mode will be disabled.

For details on setting the Power Saver and preventing the Power Save mode to enter Sleep

Mode, refer to Time-Out and System Setup of "13.2.1 Common Settings".

2.1

Connecting Interface Cables

2

When connecting the printer to a host computer directly, use the parallel interface.

When connecting the printer to the network, use the Ethernet or the (optional) Token Ring interface.

This printer can be connected to the parallel and Ethernet interface at the same time. It can receive print data from all the connected interfaces.

When connecting the interface cable, switch off the power supply to prevent electric shock.

When the optional Token Ring interface is connected to the printer, you cannot use the Ethernet interface.

And as a result, the EtherTalk port cannot be used either.

When using the optional Token Ring, refer to the manuals of the Token Ring kit.

2.1.1

Parallel

The procedure for connecting to the parallel interface is as follows:

When connecting the printer to a host computer using parallel interface, you need parallel interface cable that is IEEE 1284 compliant and less than six (6) feet long or a one that is shielded. For details, contact your local authorized Panasonic service representative.

Switch off the power supply of the printer and the host computer.

Insert the interface cable connector to the parallel interface connector and secure it by the wire clips on both sides.

Connect the other end of the interface cable to the host computer.

Switch on the power supply.

If necessary, define the following settings:

• Print Mode

• PJL Switch

• Auto Eject Time

• Bi-directional Communication

(Factory setting: PCL*)

(Factory setting: On)

(Factory setting: 30 seconds)

(Factory setting: Enable)

"Chapter 13 Configuring by the Tools Mode Screen" for details on each of the items and the way to set them.

• For normal usage, there is no need to change the factory settings of all the items except the bi-directional protocol.

• * If the optional PostScript software kit is installed, factory setting will be Auto.

26

2.1.2

2.1 Connecting Interface Cables

Ethernet

The Ethernet interface supports the following types of cable:

• 100Base-TX (Twisted Pair Cable)

• 10Base-T (Twisted Pair Cable)

The Ethernet interface cannot be installed together with the Token Ring interface.

The procedure for connecting to the Ethernet interface is as follows:

Switch off the power supply of the printer.

Connect the interface cable to the Ethernet interface connector.

Use an interface cable that is suitable for your network connection.

Switch on the printer.

2

When the printer is connected to a 100Base-TX/10Base-T connector, and you want to fix the transmission speed of either connector, or you want to specify printer settings for the environment used, refer to "Chapter 13 Configuring by the Tools Mode Screen" for details.

2.2

Memory Allocation

2

This section explains how to allocate memory.

2.2.1

Uses

Memory is meant for the following uses:

• System

• Receive buffer

• Page buffer

• PCL memory

Suggested Values 2.2.2

System use

Area used by the printer system, with the capacity remaining unchanged.

Receive buffer use

A receive buffer is prepared for each of the multiple ports so as to receive data from the ports. The various types of buffer are as follows:

• Parallel receive buffer

• SMB spool

• LPD spool

• IPP spool

• NetWare receive buffer

• AppleTalk receive buffer

When you are not using the parallel interface, stop the port, and allocate memory for other uses.

For the NetWare receive buffer, the default value is usually sufficient.

For the AppleTalk receive buffer, it is recommended that as many areas are maintained as possible.

Page buffer use

Area for drawing the actual print image. It is possible to allocate this area from the remaining area after all the other uses have been allocated. To confirm the page buffer capacity, print the Printer Settings List and then check the page buffer capacity. If the page buffer is too small, it will affect the performance and 2 sided printing may be rejected.

28

PCL memory use

Area for the use of PCL. This memory is used to store the interim data for creating the print image. By increasing the memory capacity, the printing speed may be increased.

The memory capacity is 2.50 to 32.00 MB in increments of 0.25 MB. The default is

5.0 MB.

About the Printer Drivers

4

This section gives an overview of the printer drivers.

4.1.1

4.1.2

4.1.3

The PCL 6 Printer Drivers

The PCL 6 printer drivers are installed on Windows operating systems to provide a standard interface between an application program and the printer. By installing these printer drivers, print jobs are converted into the PJL and PCL 6 printer languages and then printed through the printer device.

These printer drivers are system specific, each will only run on either Windows 95/98/

Me, or Windows NT 4.0/Windows 2000. There are altogether two different printer drivers provided:

• PCL 6 printer driver for Windows 95/98/Me

• PCL 6 printer driver for Windows NT 4.0/Windows 2000

Installation/Configuration Methods

The methods of installing/configuring these different printer drivers as well as the procedures for printing using these drivers are basically the same. Regardless of the operating system (OS) you are using, the basic steps are similar except for the look of some of the dialog boxes. Only one printer driver will be used to discuss these operations in this chapter but any differences among these drivers will be pointed out.

Settings on the Printer

Make sure the PJL switch for the interface is turned to

ON

. If the PJL switch is turned to

OFF

, the following functions will be disabled:

• Collate

• Staple

• Punch

• Image Enhancement

Setting the Printer Properties

Through the printer properties (and document default/printing preference) dialog box, the printer driver will provide an interface for you to ensure that the driver settings match those of the physical printer and to select printer option settings for the different properties.

The settings made here will be the default printer configuration for printing the subsequent job.

Although an application may change the page setup each time a job is printed, it will not affect these default settings. Changes to these configurations can only be made through these dialog boxes.

Before listing the different properties of each tab, here is a summary of them:

Printer

Settings here include the printer hardware options installed (e.g. High Capacity Feeder and

Finisher) and other printer settings that are not configured frequently, like Error Report,

Select Substitution Tray, Bypass Feed Orientation, and Job Owner Settings.

64

The "Graphics" tab has option settings that affect the quality of a printed output.

Notice that there is a visual representation of the selected graphics mode. Clicking it will toggle both the radio button setting and the image display between the Raster and

Vector selections.

Graphics Mode

Enables you to optimise graphic printing, increasing speed and quality. Options include:

• Raster

All graphics are sent to the printer as bitmap raster images (i.e. images composed of individual dots). Under this option, the printed output may appear to be a closer match to the screen image than the other mode, but printing is slower.

• Vector (default)

This mode enables images to be printed faster but not all graphic images can be printed under this mode. If the printed graphic images do not appear the same way as they did on your screen, select Raster and reprint your graphic.

Halftone

Halftone refers to a type of pattern that is applied to the printed image. By using a combination of black dots, these patterns produce a grey appearance on the printed image.

This Halftone feature is designed to process images (e.g. photographs) but not computer generated art (e.g. clip art). The appearance of the printed image will be differed by the

Halftone settings. Note the different settings available for the different drivers.

For Windows 95/98/Me:

• Device (default)

Image objects will be rendered by default halftoning attributes.

• Line Art

Provides solid lines and sharp contrasts between shaded areas and is used for images with intricate lines.

4.3 Configuring the Printer Drivers

• Fine

Provides smooth shades of grey.

• Coarse

Provides rough greyscale with high contrasts for images that will be scanned or copied.

• Diffusion

Creates the appearance of greyscales by randomly placing individual dots of ink. Best for photographic images but requires more processing time. Available only if Raster is selected for Graphics Mode.

For Windows NT 4.0/Windows 2000:

• Device (default)

Image objects will be rendered by default halftoning attributes.

Available only if Vector is selected for Graphics Mode.

• System

Image objects will be rendered by the system halftoning. Click Halftone Color

Adjustment for system halftone color adjustment.

Image Enhancement

(default: on)

Click to enhance the quality of the output image.

All Texts to Black

(default: off)

Click to print all colored text in black except white. If this is not selected, colors will be printed in varying degrees of grey. Disabled if Print as Graphics is selected for TrueType

Mode.

TrueType Mode

The driver is capable of downloading the Windows TrueType fonts in three different ways:

• Download as TrueType (default)

Prints text by downloading the complete character set of TrueType fonts in an outline form that the printer can deal with directly. Downloaded fonts are vector-based, scalable typefaces.

• Download as Bitmap

Prints text by downloading each TrueType character as an individual bitmap font.

Downloaded fonts are raster-based, non-scalable typefaces.

• Print as Graphics

Prints text as graphic images. The printed output may appear to be a closer match to the screen image than the other options, though it may print slower.

Enabled only if the Raster is selected for Graphics Mode.

Use Printer TrueType Fonts

(default: on)

When this check box is selected, the printer prints by using the printer-resident fonts instead of by downloading fonts to the printer, unless the required fonts are not present in the printer. This will speed up the printing process and give your printer its best performance. Disabled if Print as Graphics is selected for TrueType Mode.

Halftone Color Adjustment

(for Windows NT 4.0/Windows 2000)

Click to display the "Halftone Color Adjustment" dialog box for setting the color adjustment values that are used to adjust the color of bitmap images for printing. Color adjustments affect certain attributes of the image, such as contrast and brightness. Enabled only if System is selected for Halftone.

The "Negative" check box in the "Halftone Color Adjustment" dialog box specifies whether or not the colors of bitmap images are inverted. Inverting colors produces a negative image of the bitmap.

Restore Defaults

Restore the settings in the dialog box to their default values.

Overlays

66

The "Overlays" tab allows you to create, use and delete page overlays for your printer. A

Page Overlay is a group of PCL commands and/or data created, downloaded and stored in the printer by you. Once stored in the printer, a page overlay can be invoked upon request and eliminates the need to download the same information over again, thus saving transmission time.

Load Overlay

When you want to use a file from an external source as an overlay, click this button to inform the overlay manager of the file and its location.

If you source an external file from a floppy disk and then remove the disk from the disk drive, the file will no longer be available as an overlay. If you intend to use this file regularly, it is recommended that you copy the file to your system local disk before using this button.

8.1

Using NetWare

This section explains the characteristics and the operating environment of the printer when it is connected to a Novell NetWare network.

8.1.1

System Configuration

The system configuration is as follows:

6

8.1.2

This printer is compatible with NetWare 3.1X/4.1/4.1X/5.X. It also supports Directory Services using the Print Server mode.

This printer does not support Novell Distributed Print Services (NDPS), a feature introduced by NetWare 5.

Print server mode (PSERVER mode) in which the printer functions as a print server

In the PSERVER mode, the printer will function as a print server and retrieve print jobs from the print queue for printing. As it fully utilizes the functions of the printer, this mode is superior to the remote printer mode in terms of system capacity. However, in this mode, the printer will take up one user license of the file server.

Target Computers

The target computers must meet the following requirements:

Compatible file servers

Novell-accredited PC which can be installed with NetWare 3.1X/4.1/4.1X/5.X.

Compatible workstations

Novell-accredited PC which can run Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows NT 4.0, or Windows 2000.

122

8.1.3

8.1 Using NetWare

Interface

The printer supports the following types of Ethernet interface:

10Base-T (Twisted Pair Cable)

100Base-TX (Twisted Pair Cable)

The following frame types are supported:

Ethernet II specification

IEEE 802.3 specification

IEEE 802.3/802.2 specification

IEEE 802.3/802.2/SNAP specification

The printer will send out packets of each frame type on the connected network and activate automatically by the frame type which responded first.

However, if other protocols are running simultaneously on the same network, use the frame type that the NetWare server is using.

Some network components (such as the hub) may not support automatic setup for frame type. If the data link indicator light of the port which is connected to the printer of the network component does not light up, match the setting (IPX/SPX setting) of the frame type of the printer to the frame type of the file server.

• IPP Spool (Factory setting: Hard Disk spool)

• These settings cannot be defined at the printer touch panel display.

• * If the optional PS3 (PostScript software) kit is installed, factory setting will be Auto.

• Port Number is the port number used for receiving data. It is fixed at 631 and for additional port, you can define the number as 80 or between 8000-9999. If you assign 0 as the port number, the added port will not be enabled. This setting is effective after the printer is rebooted.

• With IPP, you can store the print data output from the application in the spool file of the printer temporarily to be processed for printing. Set the spool mode by using the IPP spool of the receive buffer capacity.

Spool mode:

The mode which stores print data output from the application in the spool file of the printer temporarily to be processed for printing. You can choose to save the spool file in either the RAM disk which has used the printer memory or the hard disk connected to the printer. As the processing of print data after spooling will be done in the printer, the application in the client is released sooner. Requests from multiple clients can be processed at the same time.

Non spool mode:

The mode which processes printing while the print data output from the application is being received by the printer. When the printer is processing printing request from a client, printing request from other clients cannot be received.

• The maximum spool number is 1,000. However, depending on the empty capacity, you may spool up to 200 only.

For non spool mode, if a job is sent when the printer is in sleep mode, the buffer may become full and the printing request may not be completed. When this happens, deactivate the sleep mode of the printer and the printing request will be completed.

134

9.2

When you define connection to be made to a proxy server, it might take a long time to set the IP address at the browser or the screen might not be displayed. When this happens, change the setting to a direct connection at the browser. For details on how to define these settings, refer to the manuals of the browser that you are using.

Port number setting

The factory setting of the port number of the Internet Services is 80. The port number can also be changed from the Properties screen. The port numbers that can be set are

80, 8000 - 9999.

After the port number has been changed, it is necessary to specify the number after ":" of the address when connecting from the browser.

For example, for port number, "8080", enter the number to the internet or IP address as follows: http://13.199.56.142:8080.

You can check the port number under Communications Settings of the Printer Settings

List. For details of the Printer Settings List, refer to "12.1.2 Printer Settings List".

13.12 System/Meter Settings

This section explains the precautions and limitations of using this printer in general.

When switching on/off power

• After you have turned off the power, wait at least two seconds before turning it on again. If not, it might lead to the breakdown of the hard disk and memory.

• Do not switch off the power during the following circumstances:

(1) When the Communicating indicator and the Job in Memory indicator are lighted up.

Reason:

• The jobs stored in the memory might be cancelled.

• As there is a possibility of the printer hard disk being accessed, the printer hard disk might not be usable after this.

(2) During the five-second interval after the message, "Ready to Copy" is displayed and the printer is set to online mode.

Reason:

• As there is a possibility of the printer hard disk being accessed, the printer hard disk might not be usable after this.

• When "Printing" is displayed immediately after switching on the printer even no data have been sent, press the

Job Status Stop

button on the control panel to display the Job Status Confirm screen. Next, select jobs with "Printing" displayed, followed by

Stop

. Then press the

Clear C

button.

When cancelling printing

When the printing is not allowed to end normally such as by cancelling printing, the command information sent from the host will not be reflected in the control panel.

When initialized hard disk

• When the hard disk is initialized, all the data registered in it will be erased.

When specifying multiple-copy printing instruction (sorting) for a document with more than 701 pages

The copies will be sorted to 700 pages each and then output.

When using the collate feature for sorting multiple copies of printing

Collate Settings

of the "Output Options" tab of the printer properties dialog box has been checked. However, when the collate feature in the print dialog box of applications like

Microsoft Word 7.0 is selected, the desired print result may not always be obtainable.

When this happens, uncheck the collate feature and print again.

198

14.1 In General

When using the finisher with the puncher attached

• Papers that have been punched or stapled are output to finisher tray 2.

• Do not remove any paper from finisher tray 2 when the printer is outputting paper to it.

• Once finisher tray 2 is full with paper, printing will stop.

When this happens, remove all paper from finisher 2. Printing will resume automatically.

During Setup

Setting up at the printer

Be very careful in setting IP addresses which are controlled as an entire system. Consult your network administrator before defining any IP address.

Depending on the network environment used, it may be necessary to set up the subnet mask and gateway. Consult your network administrator to set up the necessary items.

If setting the port to

Enable

leads to insufficient memory, a message to that effect will be displayed on the control panel and the port status may be set to

Disable

automatically. When this happens, set the ports which are not in use to

Disable

, change the memory size, or install more memory.

Specify the size for the receive buffer memory as required by the environment. If the size of the receive buffer memory is smaller than the file data to be received, the data may not be received.

Setting up at the PC/workstation

During Switching Power On/Off

Take note of the following when switching off the printer:

When LPD Spool is set to Memory (spool mode)

All the print data spooled to the printer memory, including print data which is being output, will be deleted. When the printer is switched on again, the print data will not be found.

However, if the printer is switched off immediately after the print data has been sent, the data may be stored on the PC. In this case, when it is switched on again, the stored print data will be printed first even if new print data has been specified.

When LPD Spool is set to Hard Disk (spool mode)

All the spooled print data, including print data which is being printed, will be saved. When the power is switched on again, the stored print data will be printed first even if new print data has been specified.

14

203

11

When LPD Spool is set to Off (non-spool mode)

All the print data spooled to the printer receive buffer, including print data which is being output, will be deleted. When the printer is switched on again, the print data will not be found.

However, if the power is switched off immediately after the print data has been sent, the data may be stored in the PC. In this case, when the power is switched on again, the stored print data will be printed first even if new print data has been specified.

14.3.3

During Printing

Take note of the following when printing:

When LPD Spool is set to Hard Disk or Memory (spool mode)

If the print data is larger than the hard disk or the remaining memory capacity at the point of receiving data, the data will not be received by the printer.

Some client computers may re-send immediately when the print data has exceeded the receiving capacity. When this occurs, the client computer appears as if it has crashed. To rectify this situation, the client computer must be stopped from sending print data.

When LPD Spool is set to Off (non-spool mode)

The printer will process print data as soon as data is being received. If the printer has accepted a print request from a client computer, it will not receive another print request from another client computer.

When the IP address or computer name is changed

When the IP address or computer name of a PC/workstation is changed, it may not be able to process enquiries or deletion requests from the printer correctly. Make sure the printer is free of all spooled data and then switch off/on the printer.

The function to stop/eject print data spooled to the printer spool can be setup from the control panel. Refer to "3.3 Cancelling Printing from Printer" and "3.4 Forced Outputting" for information on the setup method.

204

14.4

On Using SMB

Be aware of the following precautions and limitations when using the printer with SMB.

14.4.1

During Setup

Setting up the printer

Be very careful in setting up IP addresses which are controlled as an entire system. Consult your network administrator before defining any IP address.

Depending on the network environment used, it may be necessary to set up the subnet mask and gateway. Consult your network administrator to set up the necessary items.

If setting the port to

Enable

leads to insufficient memory, a message to that effect will be displayed on the control panel and the port status may be set to

Disable

automatically. When this happens, set the ports which are not in use to

Disable

, change the memory size, or install more memory.

Specify the size for the receive buffer memory (SMB spool) as required by the environment. If the size of the receive buffer memory (SMB spool) is smaller than the file data to be received, the data may not be received.

Setting up the PC/workstation

Be very careful in setting up IP addresses which are controlled as an entire system. Consult your network administrator before defining any IP address.

Before setting any network (such as the IP address) to a host being used under Network

Information Service (NIS), consult the NIS administrator.

14.4.2

During Switching Power On/Off

Take note of the following when switching off the printer:

When SMB Spool is set to Memory (spool mode)

All the print data spooled to the printer memory, including print data which is being output, will be deleted. When the printer is switched on again, the print data will not be found.

However, if the printer is switched off immediately after the print data has been sent, the data may be stored on the host computer. In this case, when it is switched on again, the stored print data will be printed first even if new print data has been specified.

When SMB Spool is set to Hard Disk (spool mode)

All the spooled print data, including print data which is being printed, will be saved. When the power is switched on again, the stored print data will be printed first even if new print data has been specified.

When SMB Spool is set to Off (non-spool mode)

All the print data spooled in the printer receive buffer, including print data which is being output, will be deleted. When the printer is switched on again, the print data will not be found.

15.5 Using TCP/IP

15.5.2

When Using Windows NT 4.0

When the printer is not printing

Cause

Incorrect IP address.

If LPD spool is set to memory, the print data sent by the user in a single print instruction has exceeded the upper limit of the receiving capacity set up by the control panel of the printer.

An irrecoverable error has occurred during printing.

Verification

Ask the network administrator to check that the IP address is correct.

Check the upper limit of the receiving capacity from the touch panel display and compare it with the print data which was sent in the single print instruction.

Check the display of "LPD Error" from the printer control panel.

Action

Set up the correct IP address for the printer.

1. If a single file of print data has exceeded the upper limit of the receiving capacity, split the file into smaller ones to keep them below the upper limit of the receiving capacity.

2. If multiple files have exceeded the upper limit of the receiving capacity, reduce the number of files which can be sent at one time.

Power Off and On the printer.

The transport protocol is different from that of the client.

The data format of the print data to be processed by the printer and that sent by the client are different.

Check the selected transport protocol on the touch panel display.

Select the same transport protocol as that of the client.

-

If the client is running Windows, disable the output function of Ctrl-

D.

Refer to the PRINTER.WRI file provided by Windows 4.0 for the details.

Unable to obtain the desired print results

Cause

The specified print language and that of the print data are different.

If it is running in Windows, the printer driver for this printer has not been used (a printer driver from another company has been used).

Verification

Check the specified print language and that of the print data.

Check that the printer driver which came with this printer has been selected.

Action

Specify the same print language as that of the print data.

Select the printer driver which came with this printer. If it does not appear on the selection list, install and select the printer driver.

If a printer driver from another maker is used, the printer may not print properly.

224

15.6

Using SMB

This section provides information on the possible causes, verifying methods and recommended actions pertaining to errors which may occur when using the printer with SMB.

15.6.1 The Printer is not Found

Cause

SMB in the printer and every client computer.

When there are multiple client computers within the same workgroup, change the Auto Master

Mode in the config.txt file to Off, and then reboot the printer.

The network (subnet) is wrong.

(same as above)

Name search of the host name is not working correctly (for TCP/

IP)

When specifying the printer IP address and the responded Host

Name do not respond to the PING command issued.

When the printer and client computer is in a different network, contact your system administrator.

Check the settings of the config.txt

file (WINS Primary Server, WINS

Secondary Server, Subnet Mask) with the settings on the client computer (e.g. WINS, DNS,

LMHOST).

The host name specified already exists in the printer.

Check if Status of SMB on the

Printer Settings List indicates that the host name is repetitive.

Change the Host Name of the config.txt file to another name not in use.

Or, change the host name used by

Internet Services to another name not in use.

Or, reset the printer settings to default values.
