We build a system that demands fast 1st-page print times. When we ship the Okidata 6e (One of the fastest that we can use) it is delivered from the factory with its rom set for 600dpi, Emulation = Auto and POWERSAVE= on.
We need a quick way that no-clue customers can click on an icon on a WIN95/98 desktop and have the printer reset to 300dpi, Emulation=HP4, and POWERSAVE-disabled.
OKI puts out a status monitor that a user can change these things by, but it is too complicated for what we need.
I have been able to get little info from OKI techs. They say it cannot be done, but one High-level tech gave us the basic codes to be sent to the printer. If you need the txt file that he says can be sent via a re-direct, I can get them to you, but the control codes would not go over well here. So just ask for them. Jim@Leaders.net
This is a biggy.
