Generic / Text Only (To File) printer driver cutting off at 85 columns wide

Hi, I am successfully using Windows XP's "Generic / Text Only (To File)" printer driver to print a report. However, the output seems to be cut-off at 85 columns wide. When I print the same report to a PDF, the report is not cut-off. I have tried changing the properties of the Generic printer to landscape but that didn't help. Thank you!

I found a solution to my problem above. In the Generic / Text Only driver I chose a page setup of "ledger" (as opposed to letter, legal, etc.) and that produced the correct output with all of the columns.

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?

try to do this set of instruction & solution:

  1. Go to Start | Control Panel | Printers And Other Hardware | Printers And Faxes. Double-click the icon for your printer to open the Documents window and clear any pending print jobs by selecting Cancel All Documents from the Printer drop-down menu
  2. Try printing a test page from the printer, not from Windows XP. Most printers have a built-in test function that's activated by holding down one or more buttons while the printer is starting up. Check your printer's user manual for instructions. If this page prints successfully, you know the problem is either with your connection or with the software in your computer.
  3. Check your printer's USB or parallel connection.
  4. Try printing something simple from Windows' Notepad. To open Notepad, go to Start | All Programs | Accessories | Notepad, type a few lines of text in a document, and try printing it. If it successfully prints, the problem is with the software program you originally tried to print from.
  5. Try printing using Windows XP's generic printer driver. Open and run the Add Printer Wizard. When you get to the Install Printer Software screen, select Generic under Manufacturer and Generic/Text Only under Printers (see Figure 2).
  6. Select No for Do You Want To Use This Printer As The Default Printer? (see Figure 3). Click Next.
  7. When prompted on the next screen, tell Windows XP to print a test page. If the page successfully prints, then you probably have a problem with your installed printer driver. Either update or reinstall the driver.

TO Print the image using IPL.


I've printed images over 500kb. Can you print a small image? If not, perhaps the driver is the problem.

If you're trying to send a text file of IPL commands to the printer, set up a Generic Text printer driver, to to send the file as ascii characters instead of as a graphic image. You can set this up in addition to your Intermec driver.

Go to Printers and Faxes, Add Printer, Next, Select the Port, Select "Generic" Manufacturer, "Generic / Text Only" Printer, and give it a name like "Text". Cycle the printer power to clear previous attempts, then print the file to this printer name.

Printing from windows


as i understand, DPL will works if you are using a serial comunication. When you say "using Generic Text Driver" i can see you are trying to print snce parallel port, as any other prnter. If that is the case, you can forget the DPL. Install an apropiated DATAMAX printer driver, and print from Wordpad.
