PCL5e printers command compatibility

PCL5e printers command compatibility

PCL5e printers command compatibility

Hi,I have two printers that support both PCL5e HP P2014 and HP P2015. I used the raster command compression (Run-length encoding). Why the HP P2014 works fine and with the HP P2015 doesn't work?
Thanks in advance

RE: PCL5e printers command compatibility

Sorry, you are right. It seems that the HP P2015 doesn't support the compression command.

If I send a raster command without compression it prints, if I send a raster command with compression it doesn't print anything.

Anyway the printer is compatibile with PCL5e.

RE: PCL5e printers command compatibility

This is the list of the command I send to the printer:

Reset        EcE
GraphMode    Ec*r0F
GraphRes     Ec*t150R
SetHorPos    Ec*p944.819X
GraphStart   Ec*r1A
SetVerPos    Ec*p236.2205Y
TransData    Ec*b1m002w ->0x4F, 0xFF
TransData    Ec*b1m002w ->0x4F, 0xFF
TransData    Ec*b1m002w ->0x4F, 0xFF
I tried also the HP 1320 and it has the same problem.

RE: PCL5e printers command compatibility

Ok. I have found the problem, the last character of the command must be uppercase.
Thank you all
