Well the problem is the laser printer - you need to insert in your program, the control (or escape) codes to set the condensed mode ON. Usually printer manuals come with that information (or used to come). But since laser printers are graphical devices, they are not designed to provide access to font changes without a windows driver.

In other words, you'll need to update your printing engine, so it can be compatible with a windows-based printer. Those printers accept information in graphical mode, instead of text mode.

An alternative method, could be, print your output to a text file (not to your printer). Then, open the output file in wordpad or even Word. There you can apply different type fonts and print from there.

I hope this helps, unfortunately the laser printer technology is not compatible with ms-dos applications, by design.

The printer cannot be set to a page length when printing from a dos program. The page length is incorrect but changes with every print even though the same file is printed


Prints from DOS programs do not have a "page length" setting of their own, nor do dot matrix printer have a page length of their own.

Page feed is achieved by sending a special control code (^L), and the meaning of ^L can be set through specific escape codes that the DOS program has to know.

My guess is that you need to tell the DOS program the page size in lines or inches, and maybe instruct it to send a page feed command after each page.

You can try directly programming the printer, but if the DOS program is sending out the wrong codes, this is not going to help. Anyway, here goes. Good luck!

IBM 6400 Dot Matrix Printer - Need Drivers for Windows XP


Try running couple of these test, to see if it might be another issue.
It should be printing these test at 1500 Line Per Minute... ?
1500LPM is at 10CPI if you have (Font size: 6, 8, 12, 14) it will make a difference.
Change your driver to Generic/Text, rerun your report... any difference?

Printer doesn't work


Hi,

it seems to me that you might gotten the wrong driver install in your system.

error page - Position: )x42b (1067) System: h6fwaim_mono/xl_image Line: 132 Version: QPDL 5.04 04-25-2005

do a check on your OS version. Operating system. right click mycomputer icon -> properties.

download the correct version of driver from Samsung website again. uninstall the currect version and unplug the usb cable to the printer.

restart your system, install the downloaded correct version and plug in the usb cable to the printer. do a custom install to serach for the printer. if it does search the printer. it will show you. USB001. after install you will be prompt to do a test page. test on it to see it works.

if it does not work after downloading and install the driver. You might have a mainboad firmware corruption.

to run a firmware update is not easy it might course other major issue. only install by an trained Samsung Engineer.

Hope this Help :)

Extra Line when printing from a dos-based program


well..that EOJ line, is possibly farther down in the program settings, and is like a page break. the Dell is only doing what it's reading, so the answer is in the programming of the application. Perhaps you might query that company about how well that program interfaces with the Postscript quality printer you have?

INTERNAL ERROR--FALSE


My printer was able to print an "INTERNAL ERROR - FALSE, Position: 0x1227e (74366)" error message as well as a test page, but not documents sent to print.

However, the problem was fixed once I switched to another USB port as the person above mentioned. So for any other people with similar problems, try that! In addition to power cycling the printer (I did that first)
