Thread: Sharp Printer Driver for the i5/AS400

  1. Sharp Printer Driver for the i5/AS400

    I have a Sharp MX-7000N that does not seem to play well with our i5.
    I have tried using the various HP drivers in the CRTPRTDEV and none of
    them seem to work well. By work well I mean it works some of the
    time, but if the printer jams or runs low on toner the copier will not
    work on the i5 until the tech from Sharp comes out and clears the code
    from the printer. In the mean time we can still print from any
    Windows device, like Word, or Outlook. I am fed up with the Sharp
    technicians, because it is apparent they know nothing of the IBM i5.
    I have used the HP8000 driver with some success. We are on V5R4 if
    this helps. Thanks.

    May be this IBM document may help:


    http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docvie...2569c10075ddb4

    It seems that your printer can amulate HP PCL5c/PCL6 hppcl5.pdt HPLJ4.PDT
    *HPCOLORLJ

    So yo use crtprtdev with those emulations in mid.


    Hope it helps

    I have actually used this page before when I originally set the
    printers up, but just for fun I have tried changing the setup again
    just to see if anything shakes lose, but all the printer does once I
    start it is withing a minute or so it ends itself. Here is how I have
    it setup and I admit I am a novice at setting these printers up:

  4. Re: Sharp Printer Driver for the i5/AS400

    System driver program (SYSDRVPGM) should be *HPCOLORLJ as stated in the
    document or *HPPJLDRV depending if *HPCOLORLJ is supported or not by your
    OS version.

    You can try.

    I tried the HPCOLORJ per your suggestion and no luck either. Does the
    5250 emulation have anything to do with this?

  6. Re: Sharp Printer Driver for the i5/AS400

    But you mean that the printer stops or is the iseries printer writer what it
    ends?

    Is the remote location name resolved by dns or the iseries host table, what
    if you type IP addres?

    Is printer firmware up to date ?

    Have you seen printer writer log th see what it happens?

    Good luck

    I think you are on the right path with the firmware idea. The last
    MSGID I got from the log showed that it could not connect via the SNMP
    server. I created an OUTQ to bypass the SNMP portion of the printer
    and it worked. Apparently, the issue resides with the SNMP buffer not
    clearing out correctly on the printer. I'm going back to Sharp and
    looking for a firmware update. Thanks for all of your help!

  8. Re: Sharp Printer Driver for the i5/AS400

    The problems you describe sound more like a connectivity issue rather
    then a data stream issue.

    The mfrtypmdl merely controls the datastream generated and sent to the
    printer. It does not control how the writer communicates with the printer.

    Communications with the printer is controlled by the sysdrvpgm
    parameter. Since you are using the *IBMSNMPDRV, the problem is with use
    of the SNMP communications to get status.

    You could try configuring the printer using the *IBMPJLDRV to see if
    that works. Its not quite as good from an error recovery/error
    reporting point of view, but may get you around the problem.

    Another option may be to try the *IBMIPPDRV driver. This would use the
    IPP 1.1 protocol. This has a lesser chance of working since many
    printer say they support IPP 1.0 or even 1.1, but in reality didn't
    support all the required options of IPP 1.0 and 1.1 (i.e. they did only
    what was required to work with M$).

    The last option, and likely the one that will always work, is the remote
    writer. This comes with many limitations and a lot less error reporting
    information. Some still want to have a printer device and have used the
    TSPLPRD printer driver example program.

    If you can get sharp to get you a firmware fix to sovle the snmp
    problem, that is still your best choice. The alternatives mentioned
    above could be a good temporary workaround. Or permanent if Sharp won't
    fix it.
