Image defects

The quality of the printer's output is subject to user judgment. This section of the manual helps you define print quality defects and understand the factors that affect print quality. The print samples in the following figures illustrate some print-quality defects. All images are depicted on letter- or A4-sized paper that has been fed in the normal landscape (non R) orientation. Keep copies of print-quality defects that you encounter in the field and explanations of their causes to use for...

Parallel MSDOS commands

Most IBM-compatible computers default to a parallel printer port. To make sure that information is sent to your parallel printer port, type the following MS-DOS command at your MS-DOS prompt or include it in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file Note This example assumes that you are using parallel printer port LPT1. If you are using LPT2 or LPT3, replace LPT1 in the example with the printer port that you are using. Because the MODE command is an external MS-DOS command (a program named MODE.COM runs when the...
