We have a Printronix Printer L1524. We are trying to print PDF file in landscape mode to make it print properly - but it is a portrait mode document (so it should print sideways, still be in portrait mode but sideways thereby fitting on the paper. We tried to change print settings to landscape more, but the printer still prints in portrait mode going and not fitting on the paper.

This can be done by sending an "escape sequence" to the printer. Basically you create a text file using Notepad and then print it. Of course the magic escape codes to do this are found in your P5010 Owners / Users Manual. I don't have a copy at hand. If yours has been misplaced, you're pretty much out of luck. As a long shot you can try the standard Epson codes for condensed print.
1. The tractor encoder signal is faulty.

Tractor Encoder. The Tractor Encoder Board has two optical sensors that sense the
1/8 inch and 1/16 inch slots in the Encoder Wheels. These pulses are sent to the Engine
Controller Board and are used to monitor and control print location and paper movement.
Remove the Tractor Encoder Cover by removing 1 Screw.
NOTE: Upon installation, the groove on the bottom of the Encoder Cover should
straddle the top of the left end of the Tractor Frame.
Left side of printer, just left of the tractor assy.
Its probally the way your configuring the way the print file is printing (IE: portrait or landscape) portrait is the top side being 8.5" or landscape being 11" wide on top! First make sure your printer has both landscape and portrait formats loaded into your printer. This will help the you by when you go to print you can try both trays to print to. If this is not your problem then its the way driver is configured and possibly try printing to a pdf file. If you cannot create a PDF from the application try finding some trial software that will enable you to create PDF files. If you can create a good PDF file and can then print that file to your printer you will have better results, because the software your using might not be configured to work with this printer. PDF files will work great and you can see the preview before you print. If you have more info like what exact software you are using and what platform(PC or mac) and repost this question i will get the update and i can answer this question better.
