HP5si printer error — cycling from PND to RDY

Tags:
AS/400 printing
iSeries printing
My setup of an HP5si printer continues to fail - actually goes to a PND status, then the writer ends and the file staus changes to RDY. The device description is below. I have tried many setting changes but to no avail. The printer works great from Windows and I can ping it and it 'looks' like it is printing - but it only cycles from PND to RDY. Any words of wisdom would be appreciated. Thanks.

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

Ensure you can ping that address from your AS/400 and change *HP5 to *HP5SI. If it fails do a DSPJOB Printer name and see if it logs errors. Hard to read your Device description but the Printer should work my comapny uses over a 100 Printers ser up as Lan or Remote Writers.

    Does the printer have IPDS capability? PND status should show when an IPDS spooled file is being prepared. If the printer isn't IPDS capable, then you need to change how you're generating the spooled files or add IPDS to the printer. This has no useful relationship to whether Windows can print to it or not -- those are almost certainly not IPDS spooled files. Tom
