PAGE EJECT COMMANDS If you are receiving unwanted extra pages or the printer is not ejecting a page when you expect it to, one of the following conditions and or commands may be the cause. When the printer has something in its buffer, the form feed light will be on and a page will be ejected when any of the following conditions occur: 1. When the printer receives a FORM FEED control character from the computer system or from the form feed button on the control panel of the printer, the current page will be ejected. 2. The PERFORATION SKIP REGION is located below the bottom margin. When the printer's cursor reaches this region at the bottom of the page, the printer ejects the current page and transfers the remaining data to the top margin of the next page. 3. When the printer receives the PAPER SOURCE CONTROL SEQUENCE (Ec&l0H) with a value of zero, the current page will be ejected; or if the printer receives a paper source command (Ec&l#H) the page will eject since the printer can only print from one source per page. 4. A RESET (EcE) will eject the current page. 5. A PAGE SIZE OR PAGE LENGTH command (Ec&l#A) or (Ec&l#P) will eject the page since the printer can only format one page size on each page. 6. An ORIENTATION CHANGE (Ec&l#0) will eject the page since the printer can only print in one orientation on each page. In addition, if you are using a stand-alone computer (one that is not connected to a network or sharing device), check the autoexec.bat and config.sys files for a line referencing "sp" or "spooler." A line activating a ram spooler can cause a blank page to be ejected between print jobs. Networks and\or sharing devices are also suspect when getting unwanted extra pages. Remove these and print directly to the printer when troubleshooting this problem.
