Epson Printers and the AS400

AS/400
I have 10 Epson LQ2180 printers attached to my AS400 over a VPN. Over the past few weeks, 5 of these printers have been causing problems. The printer prints a document, then leaves the status as SND at the top of the print list. This stops any other prints being produced. If you hold the offending SND print, the rest of the documents appear, without the need for a reset. I have a 9406-720 running OS400 5.2 The printers have internal network cards. Thanks Kas McCann

Hi,

Unfortunately, I never found solution for that problem. It’s not a problem of Printer trademark but e question of network printer.

You can create a permanent batch who scan this outqs (use the cvtwrkoutq cmd which must be created from help directory of OS 400 4.5) every two minutes. This batch record the status of each spool in a file and compare whith the last status. If no changes (specially number of pages printed), hold and release the spool you verify soon).

Kind regards.
