AS/400 printing
I have a HP printer setup as a network printer in the AS400 and it will not stop printing the first page of anyting sent to it. Literally there is no end to the printing. All other printers o.k. What is the problem?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you are printing the same spool file and different printers, and you only have this problem with one of the printers, my guess is it is in device description for the printer.
Compare the Device description for this printer and another one that is similiar.
You will problably find some value that is different.
Change it and try again.
Let us know what you find.

    Please confirm the printer make and model and attach a copy of the AS400 printer device configuration. We can then review it for errors. Also are you using the integrated NIC/printer server card that came from HP? Or are you trying to use an external 3rd party device? That may impact how the device needs to be configured.

    Hello and thank you for trying to help. We are using a HP LJ 4015 and using the internal NIC card that came with the printer. The printer is accessed for Windows via a print server and setup in the AS/400. Keep in mind this printer has been around for 4 years and it seemed to happen after upgrading version for the NaviLine/Sungard software.

    I'm sorry but I have a copy of the screenshots for the device configuration but do not know how to attach a document to this post.
