Vi2003,

PCL 5 is backwards compatible and should support PCL3 commands.  However I don't see that the model support PCL.  Do you have drivers for that model?  If you are just trying to use generic PCL drivers and the printer doesn't support PCL then neither version will work.  The printer itself must support PCL for either driver to work.  If you have a choice between 2 drivers that are made for that model then use the newest or PCL5 (if dates are similar [I doubt that is the case]).

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

I am using Suse Linux...
When I install the printer, the driver is taken automatically by the OS.

Do u have any Ref url for PCL 3e (enhanced)?

Did the link Hladamjr provide work?  PCL drivers are backward compatible so if the printer supports PCL and you find a driver compatible with the printer then it can be 3 or 5.  The specifications I saw say the US/Europe/Asia Pacific version (5740) emulates or simulates PCL 3.  That means that it would only partially support it or emulates the PCL features.  Will the application or use that requires PCL allow it to be emulated?  If not, then that would explain why the printer isn't working.

Let me know if you have any questions about this.
