Question about Printronix LaserLine L1524 Printer

1 Answer

Won't print in landscape mode

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.

    Here's more information: we are sending Adobe PDFs generated from an Oracle 9i Reports Server running on Solaris 8 to a Printronix L7032 continuous form printer being managed by IBM Infoprint Manager for Windows.

    (Sorry I made a mistake on the printer, it is L7032, not L1524)

    We aren't printing from Adobe, but from Oracle Reports and it is getting automatically generated so it's very hard to play with the settings. We'll try your suggestions when we troubleshoot using Adobe, but still need a solution for it to print from Oracle reports. Thanks for trying!

    gestetner ricoh MP3010 sends all facsimiles in landscape not portrait and reduces the text size considerably. Cant find settings to adjust this anywhere! Stuck with this issue for years now and recipents tend to complain about this.

    I am trying to print a portrait document, but when it comes out of the printer, it has been printed sideways, and half the document is cut off. The setting say portrait, though. I don't know where the problem is!

At the adobe print preview screen, does the preview agree with your desired print? if yes, then is "choose paper source by pdf page size" checked on? and is "Auto-rotate and center" checked on?

Normally you have to tell the program (Quickbooks) to print Landscape and then you tell the Printer in Properties to print Landscape.

I just had the same in Publisher to a Canon MFP MG1720.

From the QuickBooks File menu, select Printer Setup. Click the Form Name drop-down and choose Report. Click the Options button next to the Printer name field to open your printer properties window. Go to the Finishing tab and in the Orientation section, select Portrait or Landscape.

Printronix L1524 is printing very faded labels. OPC Drum is brand new. Everything looks good, in my opinion. I believe it it is the wire below the OPC Drum and the label that is the culprit. any help?

This can be caused by a worn corona transfer wire. It can also be caused by the follow;
Developer starter toner is weak, change developer.
Laser Sight Glass is dirty, Clean, it is located under the top of the printer.
Transfer unit, bad, or poor grounding.

P5010 line printer, I want to print in condensed mode

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.

I have problem with Printronix showing error 25 Encoder fail

Call a technician. This is the resolution in my manual for the problem: "Defective or dirty encoder needs to be replaced. Call a technician."

Sorry! This thing has some sensors that do go bad on occasion.

25 Encoder fail

1. The tractor encoder signal is faulty.
a. Clean any toner or paper dust out of the encoder sensor.
b. Inspect the tractor encoder wheel for damage. Replace it if necessary.
c. The encoder sensor is faulty. Replace the tractor encoder board or the entire tractor
d. The fuser drive clutch is slipping; replace it.
e. Replace the Engine Controller Board.
f. Replace the encoder cable.

�� 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.

Print problems

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.
