Resetting with out form feed

Resetting with out form feed

Resetting with out form feed

I want to be able to reset the printer without a form feed is this possiable?

The problem I'm having is that I've got a graphic file in HPGL/2 format in my PCL file and when I try and do anything after that graphic I cannot use any colors, it's like it's stuck in black and white after that.  I try using ESC*r3U to get some simple colors and then I tried ESC*v6U to get my light blue I like to use and it didn't work.

The file is quite large but if someone out there is willing to help give me your email and i'll email the pcl file for you to view in a hex editor or pcltool.


RE: Resetting with out form feed

You can send it to me and I will have a look. I've had no problems printing color inside and outside of HP-GL/2.
