A post of your application or a trace of commands sent & replies received may help someone to better understand the problem.

The responses seem to be OK. Are you printing on a serially-attached printer?

Jul 2, 2012 at 12:22 PM

Following is the information of printer

Company = EPSON

Model = FX2175

And it is i guess dot-matrix.

Sorry, i couldnot provide u more infomration as i m accessing this machine remotely.

Perhaps you can, then, try sending the commands with some time interval between them to avoid a problem with the printer's buffer. Like, give it a few seconds after receiving the PZ response before sending the next command triad.

I tried same. but again result was same.

Coordinator
Jul 2, 2012 at 12:49 PM

OK...can you then try sending PA only once at the beginning and they send only the JE and PE command pairs?

Jul 2, 2012 at 1:15 PM

ok, i will try this one.

 

Thanks.

How did it go?

Jul 3, 2012 at 11:23 AM

Unfortunately stationary has been ended at my side. It will be available tomorrow and then i shall resume it.

 

Thanks & Regards.

a Question.

If HSM Connected pritner is having pages of size "A 4" then on one page how many pins should be printed?

I rephrase my question: If my pin infomration is having a height of 4 inches then one A 4 size page, should it print only one pin or it should print multiple pins?

I dont have stationary available and have to close this today :(

 

Thanks

I've no idea. Print formatting is really not my thing.

Jul 3, 2012 at 3:16 PM

ok, Thanks.

Jul 4, 2012 at 11:10 AM

tried above but no success.

is there any way to define page break ?

Jul 4, 2012 at 11:15 AM

I have done another experiment

 

when i want to proces only one record.

I place 6 statinaories to the printer. And when my application sends print commands to hsm then to process 1 record, printer outputs 3 stationaries.

First one with record printer and rest of 2 banks...

Jul 4, 2012 at 5:05 PM

is there any command to tell hsm to end page ? or to set page size ?

I don't know about print formatting shabber. Sorry. Perhaps another member can help...

Hi Nick,

Thanks GOD, problem solved.

I want to share solution with you.

I connected to another hsm and pritner, and this time name was getting printed on first page and pin on 3rd page. And processing 2nd page blank.

So solution was this:

In PA command, I removed "F>" by doing this it stopped printing extra pages

Next i attached PA command with every PE command which  i was doing earlier.

Lastly I added extra "L>" in PA command to make sure that format completes the pin height.

 

Thanks you for all your support.

cheers,

Shabber.
